Time To Trade Amar'e

Daniel GoodwinContributor IFebruary 10, 2009

 

The marriage between Amar'e Stoudemire and the Phoenix Suns needs to come to an end.

It is obvious when watching him play that he is "bored," and he needs a change. So do The Suns.

With trade rumors going around the past week, Amar'e vows to step up his game. He said in a recent interview, "I always step up my game after the All-Star break, I elevate my game in the second half of the season." 

Yeah, well, what about November, December, and January?

Whatever team lands Amar'e will be getting a very good player, but fans of whatever team lands him will realize real fast that Amare doesn't play any defense, and he does not rebound.

A few rumors floating around have been:

Amar'e Stoudemire, Matt Barnes, and Leandro Barbosa to Miami for Shawn Marion, Michael Beasley, and Mario Chalmers.

Amar'e Stoudemire to New Jersey for Jarvis Hayes, Ryan Anderson, Stromile Swift, Yi Jianlian, and a #1 pick.

Amar'e Stoudemire and Leandro Barbosa to Portland for LeMarcus Aldridge, Jerryd Bayless, Travis Outlaw, and a #1 pick

I dont see any of those deals going down, but I do see Amar'e being traded after the All-Star break is over.
