The fun days are over, the feel-good is finished. The first indication is the departure of easygoing general manager Steve Kerr, and the sure sign will come when Amare Stoudemire leaves as a free agent.

So Kerr's out. Stoudemire's next.

"Amare's done," according to the source. "He's gone."

That will be the final breakdown of the team that won 62 games in 2004-05 while ushering in a new era of scoreboard-straining ball.

I think it will depend on who the Nets will draft. If they get Turner, then I think Amare is going there. Don't see him at the Knicks really. Chicago or New Jersey. (Miami will get one of Boozer or Bosh imo)

Never can count too much on these mysterious sources. Just because Kerr leaves doesn't automatically mean Amare is leaving. I'm sure they can still re-sign him.

- I say A'Mare to the Knicks only if they can work out a S&T w/David Lee!

- Then the Knicks sign JOe JOhnson 5yr 82.5 mill

- Then trade for PG!!! Though many have shot this down, I can see the Bulls, b/c they lack depth at center and are willing to negotiate getting rid of one of their lengthy contracts, will trade Kirk Hinrich straight up for Curry. Then hopefully the Bulls can work out a buyout with Eddie Curry so then can focus on signing Chris Bosh!

Knicks Starting Lineup:

C) A'Mare
PF) Al Harrington(Resign, MLE)
SF) D.Gallanari
SG) J.Johnson
PG) K. Hinrich

Key Bench:

SG/PG T.Douglass

sergio is going back overseas, and if you think for one second nY would bring back Harrington even if he agreed to come back for free... then i'm sorry you just dont know anything about their situation.

Either Amare or Bosh will team up with Wade in MIA, the other will team up with Lebron in NY IMO.

out of these four 2 will end up in miami and two in NY in my opinion:

NY: Lebron and amare or bosh
Miami: wade and amare or bosh

I see Amare and Boozer going to MIA.

PG (Draft Bledsoe)/ Chalmers

SF Beasley or trade for replacement
PF Boozer

If Lebron goes to NY then Bosh will follow.

I see Lee ending up in PHX with or without a S&T.

If Starver wasn't one of the cheapeast owners in sports, I'd probably agree with you. Let's not forget, he's the same guy that traded away the draft rights to Rondo, Deng, etc, just to make a few million.

I'd be shocked if Amare doesn't end up in Miami.

Amare is from Miami and already expressed interest in returning. So unless the heat say no, I think he will play for them.

I feel as if CB4 is the one going to Miami or Chicago, and if Chicago can't get CB4 they are going after David Lee or Boozer. I'm not trying to be biased here, but I do think the Nets have a very good shot at getting him, seeing as he has expressed trade interest in January and in the 08-09 season

I think for people to be saying this they donít really have a clue...Sarver doesnít want to spend money? Hello look at the salary cap since he has been owner they have been over it every year and top 5 in total team payroll more than once. That sounds like he spends money to me not to mention the fact that there were 21 other teams that had a smaller payroll than the suns this year and only 8 who had a higher payroll. As far as him trading away those guys you speak of sorry but that was D'antoni's deal right there he has stated more than once in papers here in AZ that he is not in this league to develop young talent he wants veterans. He was the reason behind sending our draft picks and young guys out of here when he was here, now he is in NY and he already had his hand in a trade that moved promising big man Jordan Hill.

Hey I love AĎmare he is exciting! But not at the max for 6 years if Miami wants to pay him 130 million something for 6 years be my guest, because in 3 years thatís gonna be one of the contracts that teams are just like we want out of this. His knee is gonna be pretty well busted up by that time and need another surgery not to mention the fact that he can't rebound consistently or play good defense consistently. I wish the suns could get him for 3 years maybe 4 attached to the one year option he has left at this point but not anything over that. He is a guy that can give you about 21 ppg but give up 25-30 on the other end. It just doesnít make since to give him a 6 year deal. He does not deserve max money he just isnít one of those guys but I like him as a second option and hope we can get more consistency out of him.

Amare was on the block before the trade deadline again this year, and as I understand, NY didnt even make an offer for him, which makes no sense, if NY was interested in amare, they would have offered lee for him, but the fact is, they arnt interested in him at all. Dantoni has coached amare, and if amare was as great as some people think, then dont you think Dantoni would have made a move for him. I just dont think that NY is interested at all in amare.

Believe it or not, assuming the Heat get Bosh, I'd want Amare in Chicago.... despite some of their idiotic waves of fans that have trolled this board recently who'd make you wish for the Bulls getting nobody at all.... I think being in Chicago with Rose would be a super athletic duo. The Bulls getting Amare & Mike Miller/Anthony Morrow would make for a good summer.

NJ will probably draft a PF/C, and NY doesn't seem interested in him. Clippers have Griffin, and Wizards seem like a bad fit.

slack_justin
06-17-2010, 06:44 PM
why does everyone think players want to go to NY? obviously no one ever goes there. The only great player who's went there in the last 20-30 years was ewing and he was drafted.

I think bosh goes to miami since bosh and wade were caught together recently. as for amare i have no idea. maybe new jersey,he stays , or ?

This is why Knicks fans are so funny. They think EVERYBODY is a potential candidate for their team. Amare has been linked to the Heat and the Nets.

I am a Nets fan but I am realistic about our free agency knowing that we will not get Wade or Bosh. Why? Because they are linked to other teams but not the Nets.
