Steve Nash is keeping an open mind as free agency nears.

The two-time NBA MVP plans to start meeting with teams when he officially becomes a free agent Sunday. Nash wants to hear their pitches before narrowing down his list.

The 38-year-old point guard was in New York City on Wednesday for his annual celebrity soccer game to raise money for his foundation. Naturally, he heard plenty of questions about his potential interest in playing in his off-season home for the Knicks or Brooklyn Nets.

Nash says the presence of Jeremy Lin wouldn't necessarily rule out the Knicks. The Canadian also acknowledges the appeal of promoting basketball in Canada with Toronto or returning to Phoenix, where he spent the last eight seasons.
