Nash makes the Lakers once again title contenders and Los Angeles just became a very strong team. The Lakers were always after a dynamic point guard, and now they finally got one.
However, now the Knicks must move on and make other deals. The team will be looking to sign Jeremy Lin, but don’t be surprised if the Knicks make Raymond Felton their top priority.
