... I'm sold on giving up too much to get Amare. If we could get him and keep TT, sign me up. Looks like we are one of the few teams that have what the Suns want - "The Bulls are among a handful of teams that have engaged in trade discussions with the Suns for four-time All-Star Amare Stoudemire, according to league sources.
It's unknown what specific proposals, if any, the Bulls have presented and one league executive stressed it's too early in the process to declare any team the front-runner for the big man's services. The NBA trade deadline is Feb. 19.
It's also unclear if the Bulls are convinced Stoudemire is a good fit, given he owns an opt-out clause after the 2009-10 season and almost certainly will be demanding a maximum contract that would run six seasons and rise from about $20 million annually.
Stoudemire, 26, also is perceived as an uninterested defender who occasionally has acted aloof with teammates, raising leadership questions."
And Dirk killed us in overtime the other night.
