What's brewing on the trade front?

Just wanted to get the communities take on what might be brewing on the trade front for the Cavs?

 

I think we've seen the most pressing issue against the likes of Los Angeles and Boston is the front court.

 

There are two obvious options (one I'd really like to see done):

Marcus CambyHe's not getting any younger. He's 35 years old and his contract is only 2 years with $8 M next year and $7.5 the year after that.

 

He's a great rebounder and defender but he lacks a certain amount of versatilty of being able to step out and guard a guy like Al Harrington on the wing.

 

Which brings me to the more positive addition I can hope for:

Amare Stoudamire.  The Suns are looking to deal Amare to the Eastern Conference to give themselves cap room and to get better.  The Cavs have expiring contracts to offer, Daniel Gibson and JJ Hickson.

 

Amare costs more, for sure, than Camby.  He's not going to be given away.  He's also a bit of an 'attitude' guy which could upset the balance of the team.  Actually, any trade is likely to upset the balance of the team. 

 

This is the situation Ferry finds himself in. He has a team that is the best record in the Eastern Conference but is in dire need of a lowpost defender if they hope to win a 7 game series vs either Boston, LA or San Antonio this postseason.  How does he address that without completely disrupting the great team he's already put together.
