Default What about Amare?

Do you think there's a chance that Phoenix would look into offers for him if they lose in the first round? I don't think anyone is going to take Shaq so they can't trade him and I doubt they'll get a great deal for Steve Nash so Amare is the only one that teams would be willing to offer a lot for.

YES!

I think he will be shopped this off-season.....the Suns are on the decline and I dont think they keep the same roster next year.....expect changes.....

The Suns have one player, who's coming into his own star quality play, and you expect them (Kerr) to deal him? What have you been smoking? Do you have any more?

Its a possibility. I dont understand why they would even consider trading Amare. He's there most well rounded player. Lets see, they already traded away Marian and Kurt Thomas so they have no defense to speak of. They replaced them with a Washed up Shaq and Grant Hill who also have no defense. So who knows, maybe they'll deal him for Eddy Curry or somebody lol. I hope there learning something from this a$$ wipin the Spurs are dishing out. If it aint broke dont fix it.

I only bring up Amare because if they were to make a big move this offseason it would have to be him if they want a great deal in return. I don't think any team would be willing to take Shaq's contract or Steve Nash's. For Amare the Bulls can offer so much and would make the Suns a really good team while it puts the Bulls right up there in the east.

Again like the other trade I mentioned I know this has little to no chance of happening. It's just a "what if?" question.

PG: Steve Nash/Kirk Hinrich
SG: Raja Bell/Larry Hughes
SF: Andres Nocioni/Grant Hill
PF: Drew Gooden/Tyrus Thomas
C: Shaq/draft pick

Bulls:

PG: ?
SG: Sefolosha
SF: Luol Deng
PF: Amare Stoudemire
C: Noah

The Suns get a good backup PG in Hinrich, a solid PF in Gooden a player who could still turn out to be really good in Tyrus Thomas a first round draft pick where they can pick a C to back Shaq and they'll have Larry Hughes who will be an expiring contract in a couple of seasons.

The Bulls could start Sefolosha at SG, sign Luol Deng and keep him at SF, Amare at PF and Noah at C. They'd need to get a decent bench and sign a solid PG but I like this for the Bulls a lot.

I think they should just build around Staudimire and Nash.

Post Re: What about Amare?

Amare would be great for the Bulls, but I really can't see us giving the Suns any package of players and picks that would be worth giving him up. Kirk/Hughes/Gooden/TT/1st rounder? That's half our team! Not to mention that it amounts to about $30 million in cap space for a team that already has Shaq and Nash on the books and hates to be anywhere close to the luxury tax threshold. We would have to give up Deng, TT, and at least two 1st rounders, probably more. That's what I would ask for if I were Kerr.

ya if PHX wouldn't trade him for KG last summer, then I doubt that we have any kind of attractive offer that they would accept without dismantling nearly half of our team

I dont think hes going anywhere. Hes probably one of the only untouchable players in PHX. Shaq has about 3 years left on his contract (and career), and this will clear up over $21 Million per year for PHX. Imagine pairing up Amare with another big named C (with the free cap space).
