Danny Ferry is waiting to hear from the Suns about his offer to take Stoudemire off their payroll in exchange for JJ Hickson and Zydrunas Ilgauskas. The trade could be finalize as early as today according to many reports.
However, many other teams are trying to get from the Suns. According to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, the Miami Heat are pushing very hard to steal him from the Cavaliers. However, other than Dwyane Wade, the Heat has nothing to offer but don’t ever underestimate Pat Riley.
While the Suns mull over their options, Cavaliers General Manager Danny Ferry remains the most active in the league leading up to Thursday’s trade deadline.
In addition to Antawn Jamison and the Indiana Pacers regarding Troy Murphy, Cleveland is in discussions with the Warriors about Maggette according to four people with knowledge of the talks.
Corey Maggette has three years and nearly $31 million left on his contract and has been somewhat injury prone and has made the playoff only once in his 11-year career. Maggette is 30-years old and has a career average 16.6 points.
