    They are pretty smart, they smell blood in the water, and a green GM in Kerr for a trading partner. I'll bet most the NBA thinks very highly of amare and attributes his performance this year as due to all the new pieces on the suns roster and to organizational dysfunction.

    I know we already have two players at the 3 position, but the only player that I would absolutely want from GSW if we were to trade w/ them is S.Jack.

    No thanks. Ellis would have to be included, but what to do with all the SG.

    Some reports state that GS will not trade Biedrens or Ellis.

    I dont see how a straight up GS/PHX trade works out salary wise.

    No way the Suns trade Amare to GS without getting Biedrens back.

    http://games.espn.go.com/nba/features/traderesult?players=1727~2427~165&teams=9~21~21&te=&cash=

    Throw in their First Round Pick in 2009 and Thats pretty fair value if they want Amare.

    Crawford with Barbosa coming off the bench would be deadly! Neither are true PG's but both can score and score in bunches allowing them to take over games when on. So atleast when Nash is resting our offense won't completely stall.

    Nash/Crawford
    Richardson/Barbosa
    Hill/Barnes
    Biedrens/Amundson
    Shaq/I guess Lopez but uggh :barf:

    Crawford? Hell no.. No thanks. Beidrins and the pick aren't worth picking up that that shitty, defense less ball hog's contract.

    Great trade idea but the Suns want LT relief so it is very unlikely to happen as presented. I would definitely want Biedrens in the trade. The Suns are already short a big man (Diaw). Also a 13th player will need to be added to the roster so getting a second player from GS would be nice. Maybe getting a rookie player back would work.

    There would have to be a 3rd team involved for this to be desirable to the Suns.... unless Monte Ellis' moped is involved in the transaction

    If the Suns did this, it would be to shore up some rebounding and have another big man that can pass. According to 82games.com....he is a poor defender at the Center position. They have no stats with him at PF.

    They would also get a pick I am assuming.

    This deal makes the better rebounders but probably even worse at defending the PF position.

    Only a couple deals with GSW I'd do.....And they MUST include either Biedrins or Turriaf AND Morrow. He's a stud in the making.

    Amare/Barnes/Tucker for Jax/Biedrins/Randolph/Morrow

    Amare/Barnes/Tucker for Ellis/Turriaf/Morrow/Randolph/Azibuike

    Amare for Ellis/Randolph/Wright/Maggs is the best we could get.

    Crawford/Marco B/Sjax/Amare/Biedrins would be a top 4 team in the West.

    Any deal with any team, MUST retrieve a STARTING caliber PF back to the Suns is they are trading Amare, or Center if they trade Shaq
