PHOENIX (AP) -- The probability of Amar'e Stoudemire staying put with the Phoenix Suns has increased now that the Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly have gone elsewhere.
Stoudemire rates his chances of being traded before Thursday's deadline as 50-50.
Speaking before the Phoenix game at Dallas on Wednesday night, Stoudemire says he had not heard anything from the Suns and was just waiting for the deadline to pass at 3 p.m. EST on Thursday.
The All-Star forward says he doesn't necessarily agree with his agent's comments that a trade was imminent.
Cleveland was considered the most likely destination if Stoudemire was dealt. But the Cavaliers moved on to their next choice, according to several reports, acquiring Antawn Jamison in a three-team trade on Wednesday.
