...to Phoenix for C/PF Amare Stoudamire.
While I understand all the risks with Amare after his knee procedure the fact is if we are going to do it this year we need a go-to-guy in the paint to complement Joe Johnson from outside.
I'm up for even giving them our first rounder next year if that gets it done. Hell, I'd even give them a future conditional pick based on if Marvin re-signs with them or not.
We have got to upgrade this team by the deadline and it can't be a minor tweak if we are expecting to go farther than the first round.
We would have a couple of options with moving Amare to C and moving Al to PF and Josh to SF but I'd rather just put Amare at PF and slide Josh over to SF.
Btw, I checked this with realgm's trade checker and it works.
