Stoudamire wants out of Memphisby Tucson Citizen on Aug. 20, 2007, under Sports
Former UA All-American Damon Stoudamire says he’s as healthy as he’s been in some time and is getting ready for another season in the NBA, his 13th.
But he’d also like to play for a winner.
“Hopefully I can get out of Memphis – that rebuilding process is hard,” he said Sunday, after he scored 21 points in the Lute Olson Classic. “I’ve got to be professional but it’s one of those situations where you never think you’ll be in. You want to get put in a situation where you want to win. Individually things don’t matter.”
Stoudamire, who turns 34 next month, still has two years left on his contract that pays him $4 million a season.
“I’m going to keep my fingers crossed (about being moved) but I’m not going to make any demands or nothing,” he said.
“Anybody who’s been in my position knows. You see the writing on the wall so I’m hoping at the end of the day we can work something out.”
