It seems likely that Steve Nash will be leaving the Phoenix Suns this off-season for a legit title-contender. With that, the Suns are looking to go after another point guard to fill in for him.

According to The New York Daily News, it seems that guy will be Deron Williams. And their main pitch will be...golf.


“If they lose Steve, then they plan to go after Deron, hard,” said a person with knowledge of the Suns’ plans. “They know he loves golf and they’re going to try to sell him on going out there.”

Golf? Really?  GOLF!

Come on, just doing that will not entice D-Will, especially if you want him on a team like the Suns. No way he is even going to Phoenix.

But hey, at least they're getting a nice round in. This all kind of reminds me of Thurnis Haley:

Anyways, Williams' main options are either re-signing with the Nets, heading to the Lakers, or maybe signing with the Mavericks or Pacers. Him having the Suns as his options doesn't seem likely.

A round of golf? Maybe.
