This trade proposal doesn't involve the Raptors, but as basketball fans, it is still of interest.
Two recent pieces of news got me thinking.
1) It has been reported that LeBron James may agree to a contract extension with the Cleveland Cavaliers if they manage to bring in a good power forward. Two names were Antawn Jamison and Amare Stoudemire.
2) It has also been reported that Amare Stoudemire is on the trading block. Phoenix is willing to trade away the all-star.
So how about this (via ESPN NBA Trade Machine):
To Cleveland: Amare Stoudemire
To Phoenix: Anderson Varejao and Zydrunas Ilgauskas
