Default Stoudamire Would Consider Rejoining Raptors

Accoring to Marc Stein, apparently Damon is very intrigued at the thought of coming full circle and coming back to Toronto.

But a third team has emerged as a sleeper to land Stoudamire if the little guard can indeed come to terms with the Grizz on a settlement this month.

Stoudamire, according to NBA front-office sources, is intrigued by the idea of signing with the Toronto Raptors and returning to the franchise that drafted him and gave him the platform to win Rookie of the Year honors in 1995-96.

Sources say, if he does become a free agent, Boston remains the A-1 favorite to sign Stoudamire and add much-needed depth to its backcourt.

And Phoenix is still a strong contender given the Suns' need for someone to ease the regular-season burden on Steve Nash, Stoudamire's University of Arizona connections and time as a teammate in Portland with Suns general manager Steve Kerr.

But don't discount a coming-full-circle return to Canada, with the Raptors forced to look at other point guards because of T.J. Ford's ongoing absence.

A hard hit from Atlanta's Al Horford on Dec. 11 knocked Ford to the floor, sidelining him indefinitely -- and adding to Ford's lengthy history of hard falls and lengthy absences related to spinal problems. Ford is in Houston working with longtime NBA coach and player John Lucas, who also assisted in Ford's recovery from the spinal-cord injury he suffered in Milwaukee that cost him the entire 2004-05 season. No timetable for a return has been established, and with only half of its potent tag team at the point available -- Jose Calderon -- Toronto has been investigating its options.

It's nice he'd say this or someone would speculate it but really of those three teams which one is he likely to get any playing time on and which is likely to win. Boston is the obvious choice....very few minutes in Phoenix period and none here when Ford returns. I think Boston is a lock.

I guess we can put the Mighty Mouse to Toronto rumours to rest.

In fact, ESPN.com has learned, the Raptors put together a trade package earlier this season that would have landed Stoudamire, but later withdrew it.

Joey/Dix?? I'm sure at least one of these guys was a principal in the deal.

interesting. makes you wonder if something else is on the way. something better perhaps.

Either way, makes zero sence for Damon to return. He's really only a point guard, and with TJ looking to return soon, i don't see how there could even be any substantial playing time for the mouse.
