Stoudemire is the Suns' most attractive asset, a 26-year-old All-Star power forward who could bring back young talent, draft picks and financial relief in the form of expiring contracts. But, after firing coach Terry Porter and recommitting to an up-tempo style of play, Phoenix may stand pat at the Feb. 19 trading deadline.

The Nets launched their rebuilding plan last summer by dealing Richard Jefferson's long-term contract to Milwaukee. The next logical move in that strategy would be to deal Carter, who has two years and more than $33 million left on his deal after this season. The Spurs and Mavs are among the teams rumored to be interested.

Chris Kaman and Marcus Camby
The Clippers are devoting $19 million to the center position while challenging for the NBA's worst record. Cleveland would love to get its hands on Camby, whose contract expires after next season. Kaman, who has been out since late November with a foot injury, could be more difficult to move because he has three more years and $34 million remaining on his deal.

Felton, the fifth pick in the 2005 draft, becomes a restricted free agent after the season and the Bobcats have impressive rookie D.J. Augustin waiting in the wings. Forward Gerald Wallace also could be available. Charlotte already has made three trades this season as the roster is reworked to fit coach Larry Brown.

The Bucks would have trouble re-signing impending free agents Ramon Sessions and Charlie Villaneuva without dealing one of their big contracts. With Michael Redd out for the season after ACL surgery, Jefferson becomes the most likely high-priced player to be dangled.

The Sixers are stuck around .500 and have yet to extend the contract of Miller, who is making $10 million in the last year of his deal. As important as the 32-year-old point guard is in leading their young nucleus, the 76ers could decide to deal him if a contract extension looks unlikely.

The No. 4 pick in the 2007 draft has been linked to several trade scenarios this season. Conley, however, has played better lately as he tries to prove that he's the long-term answer at point guard for the rebuilding Grizzlies.

Szczerbiak, a career 14.5-point scorer, owes his place on the trade block to his $13.8 million expiring contract, which is the Cavs' best chip if they intend to upgrade in anticipation of a playoff matchup against the defending champion Celtics.
