“There are enough indications out of Phoenix to believe that the Suns will revisit trading Shaquille O’Neal with the intention of saving money and giving Amar’e Stoudemire a contract extension to keep him off the market in 2010. There has been talk of Shaq going to Dallas, where Mark Cuban is never afraid to add salary for a star player in the twilight of his career (Jason Kidd). With one year left on his deal for $21 million, O’Neal is an enticing short-term risk. And, at 37, he’s apparently determined to cut down his weight and be lean and mean — he’s calling it “Shaqlyte” — for training camp in October, wherever that may be.”
The Suns gotta keepÂ Amar’e Stoudemire and aÂ Dallas – Shaq marriage seem like a good match. Besides, Marc Cuban could care less if Shaq is 37 becauseÂ signing him would be great for ticket salesÂ and I really don’t think Marc Cuban even wheres a belt that needs tightening anyways.
