    Personally I wouldnt do an S&T for amare involving andrea, Without assist-happy nash as PG, who knows what Amare is really capable of doing...Andrea has shown consistent improvement on both ends and assuming Bosh leaves, Bargnani is set up to have even more improvement to his game barring injuries. I just think Andrea has more untapped potential than amare, and I think he would rather sign on with a contender anyways

    We would use the Trade Exemption from Bosh no need to trade Bargs or anyone else for that matter

    I posted the link and story without commenting on whether I think it would be a good move to acquire Amar'e.

    I agree with those who would rather see Bargnani rather than Amar'e play for the Raptors especially if Johnson starts. Bargnani and Johnson played pretty good together last year and i would think they would only get better playing together over time.

    That assumes that the Raptors can get one.

    Of course you are correct if the Raptors could get the TPE from the Heat for Bosh then they could use that however I am not sure that the Suns would do that unless Amar'e said he won't sign with them unless they trade him. I don't think that that is his position. So I don't see the Suns taking the TPE unless there is another player that they could use it on in 2010-11. Otherwise they are screwed for 2010-11 if all they get for Amar'e is a TPE that they can't use in 2010-11.

    I would do an Amare for Bargnani trade. Of course there would have to be more pieces involved.

    The possiblity of Stoudemire returning to the Suns has been downgraded to "highly unlikely" by one source in the know. 5 minutes ago via web

    Amare is a far better shooter than Marion.

    Amare can knock down the face up 15 - 20 footer with very good regularity. A big doesn't need a guard like Nash to get him the ball for 15 - 20 foot jump shots. All he needs is someone to set a screen for him which in this case would be Amir.

    If Bargs realizes he needs to get tougher and starts to rebound he could be an elite player in this league without a doubt. He has all the talent in the world and could be in a completely different league than amare.
    And if Amir Johnson learns to score more and foul less, he could be MVP!!!!

    Are any of the same people who are suggesting Bargnani for Amare any of the same people that are saying Bargnani is untouchable?

    As with any cap team potentially losing a big chunk of salary, It's all about maintaining cap flexibility. Unless the Suns are giving up entirely on contending, the TPE will be useful to them in the case that Amare goes to a cap team that doesn't have the assets the Suns want in return. If they want to retool, they will need the TPE to maintain roughly the same level of payroll as before.

    The Raptors could throw in Evans to balance it close enough to work. $13 million vs $16.9 million new max contract 56.1 X 30%

    13 x 1.25 = 16.3 + .1 = $16.4 plus $500K cash or Bargnani + Banks + Belinelli. Though I would prefer not give up Belinelli.
    also maybe the addition of amar'e may convince bosh to stay

    Gasol has been in the league since 01 and he finally realized that he needed to get tougher as he said in the playoffs. Players change and evolve during their careers so it could happen.

    Ok, that's a bad example. Gasol has not improved skill-wise since moving to the Lakers. I would have used an example of a young forward coming out straight out of high school who suddenly "got it" three or four years after entering the league. Jermaine O'Neal is a good example. That said, Amir is still only like 22 years old and he has lots of time to grow as a player. I just am baffled how some people can come out and state with such strong conviction that he's going to nail this or that this season. Amir has been very slowly improving year to year. If you're looking for a trend, it's slow but steady improvement. How on earth can anyone come out and strongly suggest that he's going to buck the current trend he's set?
