3 Way Trade Rumor: Bosh/Stoudemire/Thomas
Total Pro Sports- Amare Stoudemire trade rumours are heating up and this time his name is being linked to another 3-way deal involving fellow All-Star Chris Bosh. The difference in this rumor is that the 3rd team involved is the Chicago Bulls who are looking to acquire Chris Bosh, in exchange for Tyrus Thomas and Drew Gooden.
“The Bulls may acquire Raptors forward Chris Bosh, and Toronto may receive Suns forward Amare Stoudemire as part of a three-team trade before Thursday’s deadline, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The Suns would acquire a package of players and draft picks from the Bulls. Chicago’s Drew Gooden and his expiring $7.2 million contract, Tyrus Thomas and a first-round pick would likely be parts of the deal.”(SportingNews)
If I were Brian Coleangelo, I wouldn’t make this deal. He knows first hand that when the Suns had Amare and Marion, they didn’t win jack. So why he bring them to Toronto? I think that if I was a Bulls fan I would be loving this deal because Bosh would make them a much better team. The Suns would be getting a nice package, which would be fair value for Stoudemire.
Is this deal going to happen? Not likely. I still think that the best option for the Suns is to trade Amare to Bulls straight up for a similar package of players and picks.
