Steve Nash and the Lakers can make it official tonight at 9:01 p.m.
It's the earliest Nash can sign his new three-year, $27 million contract and the Lakers can complete their trade with the Phoenix Suns. The Lakers get the point guard of their dreams and the Suns get four draft picks, cash and an $8.9-million trade exception.
It's possible, but unlikely, Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak will have further signings to announce tonight. Acquiring Nash last week was a big deal, the most significant the Lakers are expected to make during the offseason.
