    Photoshop: Amar'e Stoudemire in a Rockets uniform

    Well, I'm disappointed in myself that I didn't finish the "Potential Rocket Profile" of Stoudemire and get that up by this morning. I have to travel so won't finish it up until tonight -- hopefully you'll still read it (I'm sure most just want to see the photoshop :))..

    The Rockets always find a way to surprise me (Rafer for Lowry was out of the blue), but this is exactly who I think they are after right now. It's the only Photoshop I prepared before I left... just in case.

    THE ROCKETS-SUNS RUMOR:

    6/24 @ 7:45am: Just before the Photoshop thread was posted, Clutch did a radio interview with John Granato and Lance Zierlein of 1560am talking about Houston's interest in Amar'e Stoudemire:

    Even on vacation you come through Clutch :) . I hope this deal is done before draft night, that way the team knows what chips they will have to get a pick in the draft for a pg.

    No it doesnt confirm it but this is who we are after and seems like attacking so to speak. We want him, he is our guy. Now we gotta find a way to bring him over.

    Who would we most likely give up for Amare? I know it's somewhere in another thread, but I'm too lazy to dig through.

    McGrady, Brooks, maybe Landry, if not him, some say Scola. But Landry is being shopped for a pick.

    TMac plus Brooks are the most likely players to be involve in the trade and Landry might be dealt to get a pick in the draft for a pg.

    Go get him Morey but PLEASE do not give up too much. Giving up much will create more holes to fill in the Roster. Tmac plus Scola or Tmac+ Landry while the Rockets get Amare+ Barbosa (?)

    Have to keep the faith in the Rockets. I know Amare has had issues before but a change in his environment might do the trick.

    TMac and Brooks for Amare...done deal no questions asked. I really like Brooks and think he really be an asset for us. I remember watching the draft and hoping that we would pick him up becuase I had the chance to watch him play a few times when at Oregon, but in this case, I would pull the chain on that deal immediatly.

    My gut feeling is that the Rockets will land Rip Hamilton.
