With widespread speculation circulating everywhere about what Suns President of Basketball Operations and GM Steve Kerr is going to do with his team this offseason, he decided to begin with his point guard.

Kerr met with two-time MVP Steve Nash on Thursday to talk about Nash’s current contract. The two met in New York City, where Nash lives in the offseason, and were joined by Nash’s agent, Bill Duffy.

The topic of discussion was Nash’s contract extension, which is partially guaranteed by the team. 2009-10 is the final year of the playmaker’s contract, although he’s eligible for a two-year extension.

“It was a good meeting,” Kerr said. “It was very productive and it was just about laying groundwork for future talks.”

The two agreed to resume talks as the future of the team continued to take shape. With the Suns holding three picks in next Thursday’s 2009 NBA Draft and free agents becoming eligible to sign on July 1, the pair should have plenty to discuss in their next conversation.
