The Knicks have reportedly spoken to the Sixers about a trade for Amare Stoudemire.
Knicks president Phil Jackson is trying to shed salary and trading Stoudemire would go a long way towards accomplishing that goal. The Sixers have about $30 million in cap space and have told teams that they'd be willing to accept a bad contract (like Stoudemire's) if they can get extra assets in return. The extra asset from the Knicks would presumably be Iman Shumpert of Tim Hardaway Jr., so we'll have to wait and if the Knicks are willing to part with either of their most desirable young players.

Knicks president Phil Jackson has talked to multiple teams in recent days about moving Amare Stoudemire in a trade, according to ESPN NY.

This is the second ESPN report of the Knicks looking to deal Stoudemire with Stephen A. Smith saying something similar on Monday. The Knicks are obviously trying to get Amare off their books so they can sign a second max guy with Carmelo Anthony. If the Knicks pull off a deal, they would have to trade a young player or draft pick.

The 76ers are interested in trading for Amare Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert, according to Stephen A. Smith of ESPN.

If the Knicks can get Amare off their books, it would open up plenty of room to sign a free agent. Obviously, the Knicks will have to give up even more assets and it would be a bit shortsighted. STAT will be a free agent next season, so it would probably just behoove the Knicks to suck it up this season and try to make a splash in a solid 2015 free agent class.

Amare Stoudemire will decline his early termination option, according to

The news was to be expected for much of the season and obviously wasn't a concern for the Knicks. He will finish out the last year of his five-year, $100 million deal with the Knicks next season and is hoping to return to All-Star form under Derek Fisher. Despite a solid 2013-14, he's still too risky to target in fantasy leagues.
Jun 14 - 9:56 PM

Amare Stoudemire is expecting a return to All-Star form under Derek Fisher next season.

"No doubt in my mind my goal is to get back to that level [of] just three short years ago,’’ Stoudemire said. "For sure, my goal is to return to the All-Star Game and compete or a championship in the postseason.’’ He also mentioned that the triangle offense is "the best situation for all of us" and called Phil Jackson a "liaison." STAT exceeded almost all expectations last year, but it would be a shock to see him in the All-Star Game. We're not too bullish on drafting him.

Amare Stoudemire said he'd consider playing in Israel when his current contract ends after next season.

Stoudemire was originally asked if he would join a potential player strike if Donald Sterling isn't removed as an owner and then meandered over to playing in Israel, "I feel in a year my game will still let me play in the NBA, but it depends on how I personally feel. I might decide to play in Israel." Stoudemire contemplated playing for Maccabi Tel Aviv during the 2011 lockout due to his Jewish heritage and is a free agent after the 2014-15 season, so while this may not come to fruition, there are some puzzle pieces that could fit together here.
May 20 - 9:28 AM

Amare Stoudemire played 20 minutes in Wednesday's finale against the Raptors, scoring eight points with five boards and one assist.

It was a big positive to see him even suit up in both games of a back-to-back set and he finished this season quite well. Stoudemire only missed two games since Mar. 1 and they were as a precaution, so the Knicks managing his minutes earlier worked out nicely. He had very little fantasy value coming into the season, but this year will put him on the radar as a late-round pick next year.
Apr 17 - 12:09 AM

Amare Stoudemire played 21 minutes on Tuesday and had 14 points, three rebounds and a block.

Mike Woodson left it up to Amare as to whether he played or not tonight, and he looked pretty good at times. It would be a little surprising to see Stoudemire play in Wednesday's finale, although it's still possible. Either way, look for Cole Aldrich, who had 13 & 13 tonight, to play well again tomorrow.
Apr 15 - 11:21 PM

Amare Stoudemire will start at PF vs. the Nets on Tuesday.

He was a game-time decision but coach Mike Woodson said Amare would determine his own status, so apparently he felt good enough to play. Whether he suits up again on Wednesday is less certain, as is his long-term future in the NBA -- Amare said on Tuesday that he'll consider leaving to play for his team in Israel after the 2014-15 season.
Apr 15 - 6:39 PM

Amare Stoudemire suggested that he might leave the NBA to play in Israel once his contract with the Knicks expires in 2015.

Stoudemire is co-owner of Hopoel Jerusalem, a team which finished first in the Israeli league this summer. "We’ll see,’’ Stoudemire said. "You can’t rule anything out. The future is unknown and so if I have an opportunity to [play in Israel] and am still in great health, it would be great." The very possibility of Amare heading to Israel will grab headlines but we won't read too much into this until the 2014-15 season begins winding down.
Apr 15 - 4:20 PM

Amare Stoudemire joins the list of game-time decisions for Tuesday, as coach Mike Woodson says it's up to Amare as to whether or not he plays.

And given that we all now know that if Stoudemire sits out, it's because he didn't want to play, we're guessing he'll suit up for at least a few minutes. But again, it's up to him.
Apr 15 - 11:19 AM

Amare Stoudemire played a season-high 40 minutes against the Raptors on Friday for 24 points, 11 boards and one block on 10-of-14 shooting.

Is it 2008 or something? Stoudemire played more than 32 minutes just once this season and the Knicks let him loose in a must-win game. STAT has been very good since he rested on Mar. 31, averaging 16.3 points, 6.5 boards, 1.3 blocks and 0.3 steals on 65.8 percent shooting in his last four. The team should play him in all three of the final games this season, which makes him a nice start in standard formats.
Apr 11 - 11:08 PM

Amare Stoudemire continued his strong post-break run against the Heat on Sunday with 12 points, five boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

While few believed Stoudemire would be able to sustain his 19.6 minutes per game before the break, he's surprisingly pushed it to 26.7 per game since the break. He hasn't really dealt with any noteworthy injury and the Knicks have done a nice job managing his minutes this season. Although, the Knicks only have four games left with one back-to-back set, so Amare might only have three games left this season.
Apr 6 - 3:54 PM

Amare Stoudemire returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday with 13 points, six boards, two assists and two blocks vs. the Nets.

The Knicks were able to get this game into garbage time quickly and it allowed Stoudemire keep his minutes down. He sat out as a precaution on Monday on the second half of a back-to-back set and will likely sit out in the second half of a back-to-back in the season finale on Apr. 16. He should be worth starting in all leagues until then.
Apr 2 - 11:08 PM

Amare Stoudemire will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Nets.

He rested on Monday night as the second part of a back-to-back set and should be good to go tonight. Stoudemire played very well in March, averaging 16.9 points, 6.6 boards and 0.7 blocks on 56.9 percent from the field. If you have him, he should be in your lineup tonight.
