Default Ford: Suns' big contract shed might be... Amare???

Chad Ford: (12:58 PM ET ) The obvious answer is KG. Pau Gasol and Jermaine O'Neal are also big names who will likely be in the mix. But I think your hometown may be in play as well. If the Suns don't win it all, I suspect that they'll think about moving a big contract, especially if they end up with the No. 4 or No. 5 pick in the draft (via Atlanta). While everyone points to Shawn Marion being the guy to go ... I wouldn't be surprised if Amare Stoudemire is traded. From what I hear, the relationship is rocky and he has very strong trade value ... what about a deal that sends Stoudemire to Chicago for Luol Deng/Tyrus Thomas?
What a fun topic to discuss!

I wouldn't do it if I was chicago. Tyrus has too much upside and Deng is a big time player and improves every year.

I'll give up anyone not named Kobe for Amare. A finisher like him with Kobe is scary. Amare already says "Kobe is the best in the game" anyways so there shouldn't be an "ego" problem.

Suns would never trade with LA though

First of all, no way the Lakers and Suns are trading.

Second, Suns can play without Amare.

Third, this is BS.

Fourth, he is their youngest guy after all, not smart to trade him.

Fifth, IMO, Jermaine and Pau are better than him.

Sixth, I'd rather have someone different on the Lakers but I'd welcome Amare with open arms.

Seventh, nothing just had to include 7 in honor of the great Manchester United 7's

doesn't make sense... who are the suns going to play at the 5? ty thomas/kurt thomas combo? diaw again? nah... they're a better team with amare in the lineup.

marion still makes the most sense to be moved cause of his salary and the fact that there are a couple guys in the lineup that could fill his role on the team.

No Marion and No Amare= Phoenix Sinks

I like the idea of Cavaliers getting a guy like Amare Stoudemire the guy can fit in the well oiled machine of the Cavaliers.

Soccer10, Pau and Jermaine are better than Amare? Not even close. Amare can dominate a game by himself and plays more tougher than both of them combined.

Please. Just not true. Both guys are better defenders, better shotblockers and quite frankly, I even like their offensive game better.

I'd rather have them on the Lakers than Amare to be honest. Amare is great but has more flaws than they do.

Even though Amare's defense is not that great, his D is better than Gasol's. Also, Amare can affect the outcome of a game more than Gasol and JO with his dominance inside.

You guys think Gasol is a bad defender because he's white, let's face it.

Memphis were the best defensive team in the league a few years ago and they were always good or great in that department with Gasol and Pau has been a 2 bpg player pretty much his whole career.
I mean, when they can be the best defensive team in the league with Chucky Atkins starting for them, that says something.

Amare is a more dominant scorer but Gasol is a much better passer, can score on more ways, demands more attention IMO and defensively, I believe Gasol is definitely better.
Besides, he's smarter, too.

So yup, Gasol over Amare.

Most ignorant statement I've heard on ISH for a while.
