The Suns and Golden State Warriors have agreed in principal—it sounds like—on a deal that will send the four time All-Star Amar'e Stoudemire to the Warriors in exchange for Andres Biedrins, Brandan Wright and Marco Belinelli along with the rights to Stephen Curry.
The Suns have openly coveted Curry for a long time and the deal seemed to hinge on the Warriors ability to get one of the two players the Suns wanted, Jordan Hill or Stephen Curry.
The trade will also only be accepted it sounds like as long as the Warriors can get Amar'e to sign an extension.
If the trade goes through, the Suns will role out a lineup of:
PG Steve Nash
SG Jason Richardson
SF Grant Hill
PF Earl Clark
C Andres Biedrins
Their bench would consist of:
The Suns will save approximately $12 million this year in salary space with the trades of Amar'e and Shaq, along with the buyouts of Sasha Pavlovic and Ben Wallace.
As a fan, this is at least showing that they have a plan and are trying to stay competitive through the overhaul, and gives at least a direction towards what the future may hold.
