NBA star Nash planning to be hands on with Vancouver Whitecaps

NBA star Steve Nash plans to get heavily involved with MLS expansion franchise Vancouver Whitecaps next season.

The Phoenix Suns point guard is part of the ownership group of the MLS’ next team to enter the competition (along with the Portland Timbers in 2011) and admits he will definitely be involved in a few different aspects.

“You know what, I’d like to be connected in different ways. I’d like to have my hand in the structure of the athletic side of the club, the development of players, their fitness & training, the culture of the club,” he told MLSsoccer.

“I think those are the areas of the club where I could lend my professional expertise I would say, having been a professional athlete for 14 years now. I want to add value there and wherever else I can, but for the most part I’m just going to be a superfan. I want to cheer for my local team and be there to support our club with our local community.”
