Amare Trade must be 3 Team Deal

At this point I think we have all the pieces together and the only thing that's clear is that no one team can offer a good enough package on its own for STAT.  So, what we need is a third team to make this happen.  We all know that the Suns want Iggy.  That's the end game.  Philly wants good young, cheap talent in return IE: not STAT and they want to ditch one of their big contracts (Brand, Dal).  Here's a few ways that could get done:

 

Trade Scenario 1: Miami http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=ykzrwle

Suns Get:  Samuel Dalembert ($12m) and Andre Iguodala ($12.2)

76ers Get: Leandro Barbosa ($6.6), Michael Beasley (4.6) and Jermaine O'Neal (23)

Heat Get: Amare Stoudemire (16.3) and Jason Kapono (6.2)

 

Trade Scenario 2: Cleveland http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=yjpv83e

Suns Get: Samuel Dalembert ($12m), Andre Iguodala ($12.2) and Daniel Gibson (4)

76ers Get:  Leandro Barbosa ($6.6), J.J. Hickson (1.4) and Big Z (11.5) 

Cavs Get:  Amare Stoudemire (16.3)

 

I think both trades are a win-win for all three teams.  Sadly, this would require work on the part of the 76ers, who are lazy and probably won't do it.  3 team deals are always complicated, but since Ferry and Kerr work well together already, it shouldn't be nearly as daunting as normal.
