PHOENIX (AP) -- The Phoenix Suns again are shooting down rumors of a possible trade of Steve Nash.   

Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby emphatically says that the two-time league MVP isn't going anywhere, and he added center Marcin Gortat to the untouchable list.

In an email on Wednesday, he repeated the statement he made earlier in the day to The Arizona Republic, saying "We are not trading Marcin Gortat, period. End of sentence. We are not trading Steve Nash, period, exclamation point."
