The Plain Dealer reported Cavs GM Danny Ferry and Suns counterpart Steve Kerr, who collaborated on the deal to send all-star center Shaquille O'Neal to Cleveland last year, met Friday in Dallas. Suns owner Robert Sarver and Cavs owner Dan Gilbert are also in town for the All-Star Game.
Stoudemire can become a free agent this summer, putting the Suns at risk of losing him. The report also said there is a way to structure a trade with the Cavs that could put the Suns under the luxury-tax threshold, which would be added incentive to deal.
"I understand it is a business and I never get too riled up or out of control with rumors being spread," Stoudemire said.
