Amare expects to stay with Suns, but - "The Bulls remain engaged in trade talks with the Suns, though no decision is expected until closer to Thursday's trade deadline. Several news outlets, including the Tribune, have reported the Bulls have discussed a package centered on the expiring contracts of Drew Gooden and Cedric Simmons, along with Tyrus Thomas, draft picks and maybe Thabo Sefolosha."
I still hate the trade, but
apparently we are the leaders - "According to league sources, Chicago and Cleveland are among the contenders. The Bulls would send Drew Gooden and his expiring contract ($7.1 million), Tyrus Thomas (this season at $3.7 million, next season at $4.7 million) and Thabo Sefolosha ($1.9 million and $2.7 million this season and next, respectively) to the Suns. The Cavaliers are believed to be offering a package including the expiring contract of Wally Szczerbiak ($13 million), Anderson Varejao ($5.7 million this season with player option worth $6.2 million for next season) and rookie forward J.J. Hickson ($1.3 million this season and $1.4 million next), although more pieces would need to be included to make that deal work."
Stoudemire said Rose is "a super athletic and a fast and explosive point guard," leading some to believe that Stoudemire could be interested in heading to the Windy City.
D-Rose is tired - "As much as Bulls rookie Derrick Rose just wants to enjoy himself at his first All-Star weekend, he's just too tired. Isn't this supposed to be a relaxing break from the hectic nature of the NBA season?"
