Steve Nash and ex-wife Alejandra Amarilla Menrath recently settled their child-custody dispute in Arizona court.

According to the Associated Press, Maricopa County Judge Ray Ryan Adelman signed off on a settlement agreement on Sept. 25, ordering it sealed.

Nash and Menrath divorced in 2011. The couple had twin girls in 2004 and a son in 2010.

Upon joining the Lakers in 2012, Nash cited proximity to his family as a key factor in his decision to come to Los Angeles.

Nash is expected to make his preseason debut Sunday night at Staples Center against the Denver Nuggets.

The Lakers start the regular season on Oct. 29 in a home game against the Clippers.
