Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash says he's OK with Rick Welts' coming out gay.

Welts, the CEO and president of the Phoenix Suns, recently told The New York Times that he's gay.

“I don't think the players on our team care,” Nash told The New York Times on Monday. “Not a lot of guys on the team have a lot of contact with Rick, including myself. Obviously, I have a ton of respect for him and what he does for the organization. I think he's great at what he does.”

The 37-year-old Nash also recently appeared in a video ad for the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) New Yorkers for Marriage Equality campaign.

“A growing number of professional athletes are speaking out in support of gay and lesbian couples getting married,” Nash said in the ad. “I'm proud to be one of them.”

Nash also told the paper that the NBA is ready for an openly gay player.

“If a player in the locker room came out, it would come and go quickly, too. I really don’t think it’s a big issue anymore. I think it would be surprisingly accepted, and a shorter shelf life than maybe we would imagine. I think the time has come when it should happen soon. I think it will be something that won’t take on this life of its own. It won’t be the O. J. trial.”

Nash's comments come after the NBA fined two players for hurling anti-gay slurs.
