Well the trade hasn't gone through, yet. And many teams have upped their offer for Amare. I understand why you believe that, though and I agree. But from a different perspective, you would think Phoenix does it so they can make a move this off season with whatever money they have. You think they'd keep Hickson and cut Ilgauskas, and all that cap space they cleared goes to a big name free agent.
I think the reason they don't consider Iggy as much is because they have Grant Hill, JRich, and Barbosa. I know, Iggy would start for the Suns, but they already have guys that can do what Iggy does. They do need a center, though, because Lopez and Frye ain't gonna cut it. Also, they're taking on Iguodala's contract. That's locked in for a couple years.
Igudala and Dalembert is a much better trade, it just would mean that Phoenix wouldn't have any salary relief for a few years. I'd take that trade from the Sixers and just support and make a slightly better player out of Dalembert, as at elast he is a very good rebounder and defender right now
