But as far as his future goes, Stoudemire, 32, said that his career will continue as long as his body allows him to keep going. “There’s no timeframe,” Stoudemire said. “Depending on what my body tells me … I just listen to my body, and go from there.” New York Post

But after a series of injuries over the past few seasons have robbed him of a good chunk of the breathtaking athleticism and power that made him one of the most fearsome offensive forces in the league, Stoudemire said he has no regrets about how his tenure in New York turned out. “No, I don’t, actually,” Stoudemire said before the Nets’ 104-94 win over the Mavericks. “I can’t control how my body reacts to certain things. But, other than that, I have no regrets.” New York Post

The NBA trade deadline turned into homecoming day, with Kevin Garnett returning to Minnesota and Tayshaun Prince going back to Detroit. Could an Amar'e Stoudemire-Phoenix reunion be next? Perhaps. Stoudemire joined the Dallas Mavericks last week after being waived by the Knicks, but he'll be a free agent again in July, and sources say he would welcome a return to Phoenix, where he spent his first eight seasons. Stoudemire loves the city, and his creaky knees could benefit from a reunion with the Suns' renowned medical staff. Whether the Suns would reciprocate the interest is unclear. But the Suns could use a scoring big man, and team officials could certainly use a PR boost after trading the popular Goran Dragic to Miami last week. Bleacher Report

Earl K. Sneed: Per Rick Carlisle, Ricky Ledo has been informed that if "said" player does clear waivers, Ledo will be waived. Otherwise, he could stay. Ledo did not practice today and will not be practicing tomorrow while everything else plays out. Twitter @EarlKSneed

I think they are keeping a hole card, just in case. I expect Greg Smith to be waived to make room for Stoudemire. So Bernard James can stay in the open roster spot that he now occupies. If Jermaine O'Neal decides to jump into action, the Mavericks could make room via Ricky Ledo. I agree with you that you simply cannot have enough big men in the Western Conference. If you run into the Clippers, Grizzlies or Blazers in an early round, you're going to need that extra bulk. And those six extra fouls. I'm not a Larry Sanders fan at all. Kanter would cost too much and really, after that you're talking about guys that would not be heavy lifters. Jermaine, if he's fully committed and in basketball shape, would be a palatable option.
