He was an NBA All-Star eight times and won the NBA MVP trophy twice, winning the award consecutively in 2004 and 2005 respectively.

The Canadian is widely considered as one of the best NBA playmakers of all time. Nash has the third most assists in NBA history with 10,335, behind only Jason Kidd and Hall of Fame inductee John Stockton.

Role

If Nash does take the role, he will be joining 2014-15 champions Golden State Warriors who are led by MVP Stephen Curry.

Nash would be working closely with Curry as well as all-star Klay Thompson as Golden States goes for back to back titles next season.

Curry has drawn comparisons with Nash since entering the NBA, and enjoyed his best season to date in 2014-15, winning the NBA MVP award as well as setting the record for most NBA three-pointers in a season with 286. This eclipsed his own record of 272 set in the 2013-14 season.

He is also currently in a streak of three consecutive seasons leading the league in three-point field goals made.
