Why trade for someone who can become an unrestricted free agent this summer? That's just silly. Amare isn't getting traded anywhere despite all the rumors that will come up the next couple weeks.
And he's going to get much less than the max this summer when he opts out.
I can think of two types of teams:
(1) A team trying to shed payroll. That team will send players with multiyear contracts who aren't in the team's future plans. Once Amare's contract is up, they'll have flexibility.
(2) A team that is interested in "renting" Amare for a championship run THIS SEASON.
Spurs would be in group 2. But I REALLY hope they aren't interested in that overrated cyclops.
