With the Cleveland Cavaliers no longer an option for Amar’e Stoudemire, the Phoenix Suns are prepared to keep their All-Star forward through Thursday’s trade deadline, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Unless a trade materializes before Thursday afternoon, Stoudemire very well could spend the rest of the season in Phoenix.
“I think it’s 50-50 at best with Cleveland out of it,” said Stoudemire’s agent, Happy Walters.
The Suns weren’t enamored with the Cavs’ offer for Stoudemire – Zydrunas Ilgauskas, J.J. Hickson, Danny Green and a first-round pick – which spurred Cleveland to instead acquire Antawn Jamison from the Washington Wizards for a much smaller package.
The Miami Heat have continued to express interest in Stoudemire, and have offered Udonis Haslem, Quentin Richardson, Daequan Cook and a first-round pick.

The New York Daily News reports that the Trail Blazers, the Knicks and the Clippers could be mulling over a three-way trade that would send David Lee to Portland and Quentin Richardson to Los Angeles, and both Marcus Camby and Channing Frye to New York.
Knicks president Donnie Walsh denied that he was working on the trade, although the Daily News said several sources within the Knicks organization confirmed that the prospect of adding Camby to the roster has been discussed recently.
Portland has been interested in Lee for some time, and it is believed that Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni would be happy to exchange the 6-9 Lee for the 7-0 Camby at center.
