It took quite a while, but Steve Nash finally returned phone calls from Lakers Coach Byron Scott.

Scott recently expressed mild confusion Nash hadn’t called him back, at least to talk for a few minutes. Nash, 40, is sitting out this season because of chronic back problems but Scott has repeatedly expressed hope the two-time NBA MVP will serve as a mentor for younger players on the team.

Nash has been away from the Lakers in recent weeks, trying to clear his mind with the realization his career is over.

“He did say on his message that he’s definitely going to come back [to visit], he wants to see everybody, but he just needed some time, which we all understood,” Scott said Tuesday.
