Amare Stoudemire said he is considering playing in the NBA next season.

Stoudemire spent last season playing for Hapoel Jerusalem in Isreal. His team won a championship, and he averaged 9.9 points and 5.9 rebounds in 23 minutes per game off the bench. He's not sure if he will return to the Israeli Premier League for another year or explore other opportunities. Stoudemire said that playing for "a team that needs quality veteran leadership in the NBA" would be an option.

Amare Stoudemire's agent said he had offers to play in the NBA next season.

Happy Walters said the six-time All-Star had offers to play in the NBA for the 2016-17 season, but only wanted to play for a playoff team and instead decided to retire and head overseas to play in Israel. After 14 seasons in the NBA, Stoudemire won't have any fantasy value playing for Hapoel Jerusalem next season.

Amare Stoudemire has signed a deal to play for Hapoel Jerusalem in Israel.

Stoudemire recently announced his retirement from the NBA, but he will now suit up for the team that he is a co-owner for.

Six-time All-Star Amare Stoudemire has announced that he will be retiring from the NBA after 14 years in the league.

Stoudemire released a statement saying that he will be retiring as a New York Knick, "Although my career has taken me to other places, my heart had always remained in the Big Apple. Once a Knick, Always a Knick." Stoudemire spent some of the best years of his career running the pick-and-roll to perfection with Steve Nash in Phoenix, but his body just started to breakdown around 2011. STAT will end his career with averages of 18.9 points, 7.8 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.2 swats per game. Click the link below for his full statement. As a side note, there's a chance STAT suits up in the CBA or Israel next season, but his NBA days are over.

The Heat are "open" to bringing Amare Stoudemire back at the minimum salary, per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

We're "open" to lots of possibilities, but that doesn't make their pursuit "likely" in any way, shape or form. "It would have to be a defined role [to return]," his agent, Travis King, said last week. "He loves [Miami] and the team but he loves playing. He’s looking somewhere he can play. He wants to contribute 10 to 20 minutes a night." Assuming Miami re-signs Hassan Whiteside, the odds of Stoudemire finding that role with the Heat are slim to none.

Amare Stoudemire was a DNP-CD during Miami's Game 7 loss on Sunday.

Udonis Haslem was also nearly a DNP, as Erik Spoelstra opted to continue playing extreme small-ball. Stoudemire praised his teammates after the game ("I had the best time of my life with my teammates this season"), but he also complained about a lack of playing time ("That was not part of the deal"). He's likely to sign another short-term, minimum-salary with a contender this summer.

Amare Stoudemire was a DNP-CD on Friday.

The Heat small lineups are doing really well. Stoudemire is likely not going to play in Game 7.

Amare Stoudemire was benched after halftime during Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors, finishing scoreless with one rebound and one steal in three minutes of action.

The Heat don't have many options with Hassan Whiteside (knee) on the shelf, ostensibly relying on veterans Amare and Udonis Haslem (six points, three boards) for limited minutes at center. They wound up going with Josh McRoberts in the middle and a variety of ultra-small lineups after halftime, which worked well enough, so there's a good chance Stoudemire will be out of the equation in Game 6.

Amare Stoudemire will start again on Wednesday against the Raptors.

We'll see how quickly the Heat go small because their starters on Monday were really their worst group. Stoudemire is not a fantasy option. If you were looking at Josh McRoberts, he's still on the board.
Wed, May 11, 2016 06:43:00 PM

Amare Stoudemire scored six points with three rebounds in 12 minutes as the starting center against the Raptors on Monday.

He just has too many miles on the tires and 12 minutes was almost too much for him. Stoudemire is not a fantasy option.
Mon, May 9, 2016 11:46:00 PM

Amare Stoudemire will start Monday for Game 4 against the Raptors.

He is likely just going to start out for the first rotation and it's up in the air after that. Besides Hassan Whiteside (knee), Stoudemire was the only Heat player to play in Game 3 and log fewer than 12 minutes. He should play more than four tonight, but he's not the best fantasy option. Josh McRoberts and Udonis Haslem should also help fill in while the Heat go small, as well.

Amare Stoudemire said he'll likely start against the Raptors on Monday.

Be careful here. Stoudemire looked bad in Game 3 and he's not likely to play much anyway. He's a very risky DFS target while Udonis Haslem and Josh McRoberts are also a dice roll. McRoberts has the most upside.
Mon, May 9, 2016 06:52:00 PM

Amare Stoudemire played four minutes with one missed field goal and one foul against the Raptors on Saturday.

He's just too much of a liability on defense to be used even with Hassan Whiteside (knee) unlikely for Game 4. Stoudemire won't be a punt play in DFS.
Sat, May 7, 2016 07:56:00 PM

Amare Stoudemire was a healthy DNP-CD on Sunday.

Amare had been playing limited minutes as a starter ahead of Hassan Whiteside, but he was just a starter in name only. Miami would assuredly like to get him some rest before the postseason, assuming he'll even be in the rotation, so his minimal fantasy value has officially evaporated.
