PHOENIX (AP) -- Steve Nash says that it's "very, very important" to him that the Phoenix Suns re-sign his good friend Grant Hill.

Nash spoke after the Suns opened their practice facilities to returning players on Thursday. He says he believes that Hill's services will be coveted around the NBA and it will take "a great offer" to keep him in Phoenix.

Suns President Lon Babby has said his top priority is to re-sign Hill.

Nash also says that he believes any hard feelings between him and owner Robert Sarver over the player lockout can be repaired.

The 37-year-old point guard says he understands why fans could be upset with the lockout and that the players will have to earn their trust and support again.
