Default Amare a Spur?????????????????????????

While Spurs president of basketball operations Gregg Popovich acknowledges that every NBA team discusses nearly every potentially tradeable player, this is what we know to be true this morning: There has been conversation between the Spurs and the Suns about a trade that would bring All-Star center Amare Stoudemire to San Antonio.

NBA sources say Stoudemire's agent, Happy Walters, has been doing his best to create leverage for his client. Meanwhile, the Suns welcome every rumored new suitor for an All-Star who has a player option to become a free agent this summer.

Yahoo! Sports NBA columnist Adrian Wojnarowski speculated that the Spurs would have to offer Manu Ginobili, and his expiring $10.8 million contract, to the Suns as part of a package to get Stoudemire.

The NBA's trade deadline is Feb. 18. In a general conversation about possible moves, Popovich said the Spurs discuss and consider everything they believe might help the team improve.


As always is the case, Spurs general manager R.C. Buford offered no comment.

That could be the best inside duo since Duncan and Robinson.

Default Re: Amare a Spur?????????????????????????

I dont really know what to think about this trade. I hate dice and he is playing so terrible this season. **** though I hate amare then I hate dice but I respect his OFFENSIVE game if there is any coach in the nba who can teach that ****ty player to rebound and defend its pop tho. id rather do jefferson dice and mason not trying to get rid of ginobili a winner for a born loser in amare


can anyone here imagine ginobili on the suns?? rofl you could get rid of nash and get a couple more bad ass players and just let ginobili run your offense. very scary

I never understood why people think teams should entertain an expirer, for a worse expirer trade... just doesn't make sense for so many reasons.

Same reason there was never any grounds behind that supposed Haslem for Boozer deal earlier this season. You never trade an all-star expirer, for a mediocre expirer. Manu this season is mediocre.

But their backcourt would stink... Kobe has two bigs that can stay with that pair.. But who stays close to Kobe on the Spurs.. Nobody... It helps the Spurs but they still don't have enuff to beat the LAKERS...


Would the Suns take a guy who is in the same position as the guy they are trading?

theres like a 20 page thread onthis on spurstalk with varying opinions, but me personally I'd rather have Manu for a year than Amare for a year. There's no guaranteeing either comes back, but at least we have Manu's bird rights and he and his family have lived in SA for a long time so I doubt they 'want' to move. Amare's defense, or lack thereof, is not what the Spurs need in my opinion - they need just a long shot blocking center ala Joel Przybilla.

Man, if the Spurs get Amare for some of those packages discussed above, watch out. Spurs haven't had a legit big man next to Duncan in 7 years.

Because the only thing that makes more sense for the Suns than trading Amare for a lesser expirer is trading him for a longer contracted older player.

Do people read other people posts? Beasted up top explains why these offers don't work, yet you post MORE, worse offers.

Cav and Laker fans, please meet Spur fans. All delusional fanbases expecting star players for 10 cents on the dollars.
