One has to wonder now if trading Amare is really impossible.
There is a team that exists with Steve Nash and Mike Dantoni. The same combination that made Amare an allstar. A team that also has Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard. A team that has a player in Pau Gasol who has been on the trading block and every rumor mill for the past year. A player who if traded straight up matches Amare's contract.
Would the Lakers bite on this? If Amare comes back from his injury and plays well but the Knicks still don't see the perfect gel with Melo...would this trade be possible?
