“Amar’e is an unbelievable player but his name hasn’t come up,”Orlando official
I can tell you with full knowledge and disclosure that Stoudemire was offered for Paul on the day they were pressing to acquire Chandler. It was a shot in the dark.
The Howard situation is something we've been on the case with as well. And, again, I won't take any Howard to NY rumor seriously unless my sources tell me that there is legs to it. Right now it seems as if Orlando is trying to play the roll of Denver last year. There is absolutely no rush for them to do any deal, like the Nuggets last year, if they are winning games and potential trade partners are losing them. It's beneficial for them to watch the Nets' (for example) draft position improve night after night. This draft is loaded.
