Amar’e: ’50-50′ Chance of Remaining a Sun

by August 21, 2009

STAT says he wants to remain a Sun for his entire career, but his opt-out clause after this season may force Phoenix to deal him: “Stoudemire now expects to play in Phoenix this season but lists his odds of remaining with the franchise a year from now at ’50-50.’ If he declines his $17.6 million player option for the 2010-11 season, he’ll become a free agent in July. So far, the Suns don’t appear committed to rewarding him with the type of maximum extension he’d seek on the open market.”
