Phoenix Suns wouldn’t part with Amare even if it could land them Kevin Garnett. Heck, I don’t blame them, they have great chemistry and their is no reason to tweak with it.
ESPN: Stoudemire came back from microfracture surgery on one knee and an arthroscopic cleanup of his other knee to earn first-team all-NBA honors. Still, in the days leading up to this year’s draft, there were rumors he would be part of a blockbuster trade that would bring Kevin Garnett to the Suns.
He said he was assured by the Suns that he wasn’t going to be traded.
“They all called me, [general manager] Steve Kerr, Mike D’Antoni from the coaching staff and certain players,” Stoudemire said. “They told me it was all rumors. There was no thought of me going anywhere, so I’m back at it again and next season going for a championship.”
