The Toronto Raptors are reportedly ready to offer Steve Nash $12 million annually for the next three years:

Their pitch to Nash will focus on his chance to return to his native Canada and dramatically help what the Raptors are building while becoming even more of a legend in his native country. Nash has extensive Raptors ties, among them his connections to former Suns GM Colangelo to his time with former Raptors coach and current Vice President of pro scouting Jay Triano, who worked with Nash on the Canadian Olympic team.

Sources confirmed that the Raptors are likely to offer a deal that pays approximately $12 million annually, though it remains to be seen whether it is for three guaranteed years or two years with a team option in the third season.

That is indeed a lot of money to offer a 38-year-old player, unless he is a 2-time NBA season MVP. Steve Nash has great credentials, although he never won a title. He would definitely kill all his chances to ever win a championship if he accepts the Raptors' offer, but I doubt any NBA team could match their offer. Toronto being in Canada, I can really see Steve Nash sign his last NBA deal playing in his native country.
