Steve Nash for Chauncey Billups

There have been a bunch of rumors going around saying there might be a trade between the Suns and the Knicks with the main pieces being Steve Nash for Chauncey Billups.

Don't get excited Knicks fans, he'll still be with the Suns next season.

This is never going to happen so don’t get your hopes up Knicks fans.  Billups is three years younger than Nash and scores a few more points a game, but they are both in the last year of their contracts and Nash is still playing at a higher level.

There is only once scenario in which this is remotely possible:  The Suns decide to buy out Vince Carter, and decide they are completely blowing up the team and going into rebuilding mode.  Even then they would only trade Nash in the case that they felt bad and wanted to trade him to a contender.  There is no other reason they would trade their most popular player other than pity.
