PHOENIX — The agent for Amare Stoudemire says he expects the All-Star power forward to be traded by Thursday's deadline, with Cleveland and Miami the most likely destinations.
Happy Walters told The Associated Press it would make no sense for the Phoenix Suns not to trade Stoudemire only to see him walk away as a free agent at the end of the season.
Walters says Stoudemire believes Phoenix's game Wednesday night at Dallas will be his last for the Suns.
Suns general manager Steve Kerr declined to comment on the situation. Kerr never has said the team definitely would trade Stoudemire, only that he is listening to offers.
The Suns still have several options if they decide not to make a deal now.
