Caron Butler for Amar'e Stoudemire

I love Caron Butler but the way this team is built now, we have little to no front court depth. Those who believe we have a shot at a championship or even the ECF are somewhat delusional. In history and especially throughout this decade, no team has won a championship without a dominant big-man except for the Pistons who overachieved. Caron Butler does a lot of great things for this team but right now our backup PF/Cers are dray and Javale McGee. This won't cut it, especially in the playoffs and should either Antawn or Brendan go down we'd be in a world of trouble.

My proposal is to trade Caron Butler, Mike James, and Nick Young for Amar'e Stoudemire. This is the most talent they can get for Amar'e and maybe we'd be overpaying a little. We could possibly switch NY out for Cirttenton but I'm not sure if they would go for it. Anyway, our lineup would be the following:

PG: Arenas/Crittenton/Foye

SG: Foye/Miller/Mcguire

SF: Miller/Mcguire

PF: Stoudemire/AJ/Blatche or Javale depending on progress

C: Haywood/Stoudemire/Blatche or Javale depending on progress

This would clear up the logjam we have in the backcourt with Mike Miller getting the majority of SF minutes and sharing them with Dominic Mcguire. Antawn Jamison would come off the bench as a sixth man and Stoudemire could log minutes at the PF and Center position. Jamison could even play a little SF with Caron at the 2 to get all our best players on the court. I'm not sure if this lineup is championship calibur and maybe more moves would be needed, but I think it has some potential. We could always sign someone like Zaza or Drew Gooden for the MLE and I'd be happy.
