Amare Stoudemire said he's ready to accept any role on the Heat.
While saying he isn't sure what he role is going to be on the Heat, the 32-year-old sounds ready to blend in however he needs to. "Just four years ago I was an MVP candidate and an All-Star," Stoudemire said. "I feel like I can still get back to that All-Star level of play. If I can achieve that, then that's going to help the team in its entirety. I will accept whatever the role is." STAT likely won't see more than 25 minutes per game with the Heat, so he can safely be left on waivers in standard fantasy leagues. Aug 27 - 10:20 AM

Amare Stoudemire said he's ready for a productive season with the Heat.

While saying he hopes he can help the Heat make a championship run, Stoudemire said he's feeling good going into the 2015-16 season. "There’s an aura around here that everyone works hard, that you have to be in top shape which is great because I want to be in the best shape of my life going into this season. I want to surprise the world and have a very, very productive year." While Stoudemire will provide the Heat with a veteran presence off the bench, he won't see enough minutes to make a dent in standard fantasy leagues.

Chris Bosh said he was "very surprised" Amare Stoudemire signed with the Heat.

"I can’t believe he came," Bosh said. "We’ve had dinners before. Our wives are good friends. He’s a really good guy." Stoudemire is going to back up Bosh and Hassan Whiteside. After the Knicks made it impossible for STAT to live up to his max deal, he won't be viewed in such a negative light for limited minutes with Miami. He's only worth drafting in leagues that give bonuses for wine baths.

Amare Stoudemire said that he signed with the Heat because he believes they can compete for a championship.

"I believe the team we're establishing can be a contender in the East for sure," said Stoudemire. Amare also commented on his health saying, "I feel great. Two straight years of feeling strong; that's a positive thing for me." Stoudemire has technically had a healthy two years, but that health has come with a lot of rest days. His minutes will be held in check in Miami, and he's sure to get more than a few nights off, so he won't be worth drafting in standard leagues.
Jul 14 - 5:16 PM

The Heat signed Amare Stoudemire to a one-year deal worth $1.5 million.

That's a much smaller contract than his max deal with the Knicks, which further indicates how bad of a deal that was. Stoudemire is going to need his maintenance days off and his minutes shouldn't go much higher than 24 on the nights he plays. He can be ignored in standard leagues.
Jul 10 - 5:49 PM

The Heat are scheduled to meet with unrestricted free agent Amare Stoudemire on Friday.

Stoudemire and the Heat are reportedly "close" to coming to terms on a deal, and he'll help backup Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside in Miami. Stoudemire isn't really capable of handling major minutes, and will likely sit out certain back-to-back sets, so he won't be worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 9 - 7:16 PM

The Miami Heat could be interested in signing Amare Stoudemire, according to a league source.

Stoudemire could find his way back to Dallas after the Mavs were spurned by DeAndre Jordan, but he would make sense for the Heat as a backup behind Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside. We'll keep an eye on STAT's situation as it unfolds, but he's not much more than a deep league fantasy option at this point in his career.
Jul 9 - 10:36 AM

Unrestricted free agent Amare Stoudemire has been speaking to the Clippers, according to Ben Bolch of the L.A. Times.

The Clippers situation is a bit clouded due to cap space, but they're likely to do what they have to in order to sign a big man following DeAndre Jordan's departure. Stoudemire would isn't the player to fill Jordan's void, however, as he's best-suited for a bench role at this point in his career. Whether he lands in Los Angeles or elsewhere, STAT is best left off draft boards in standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 7 - 1:58 PM

Amare Stoudemire will meet with the Clippers on Sunday.

The Mavericks, Pacers and Lakers are also said to be interested in Stoudemire, but a deal doesn't sound imminent just yet. The Clippers also have interest in JaVale McGee, so it's safe to say that they are already missing DeAndre Jordan. Stoudemire will have a limited role wherever he lands, so he is safe to ignore in fantasy leagues.
Jul 5 - 1:11 PM

The Lakers have reportedly expressed interest in Amare Stoudemire.

Stoudemire is well past his days of being a relevant name in standard fantasy leagues. His body simply can't handle major minutes, so wherever he signs, he won't be worth drafting in standard leagues.
Jul 2 - 7:04 PM

The Clippers are reportedly reached out to Amare Stoudemire as they wait and see what DeAndre Jordan decides to do.

It's unclear is the Clippers are interested in Stoudemire as a Jordan replacement or complement, but Stoudemire is reportedly only interested in the former scenario as he doesn't want to back up Jordan and Blake Griffin, according to Ben Bolch of the L.A. Times. That may be wishful thinking from STAT as the 32-year-old averaged just 12.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks in 15 games as a starter last season.
Jul 2 - 1:43 PM

Amare Stoudemire is eyeing the Mavericks and Suns in free agency, and he also wouldn't rule out the possibility of playing for the Knicks again.

Stoudemire's glory days were with the Suns, so it would make some sense for him to finish his career in Phoenix. Stoudemire had a very limited role with the Mavericks off the bench last season, but that's probably all he can handle at this point in his career. Regardless of where he lands, Stoudemire won't be worth drafting in most leagues.
Jun 20 - 1:17 PM

Amare Stoudemire enjoyed his time with the Mavericks, but he's uncertain about re-signing in free agency.

"There were a lot of adjustments to be made. For the most part, we had it figured out and had a successful year. It was a positive," he said. Stoudemire added that he'll make his "rounds" in free agency before concluding with a "we'll see" about returning to Dallas. We wouldn't bet on reunion. This is purely speculative, but the Miami Heat make a lot of sense as a landing spot if the two sides can make it work.
May 11 - 10:58 AM

Amare Stoudemire started at center and scored 15 points on Monday against the Jazz.

Amare also had just three boards against Rudy Gobert and Co. in his 22 minutes. If everybody gets rested again on Wednesday against the Blazers, look for similar production out of Stoudemire, assuming he isn't rested as well.
Apr 14 - 4:15 AM

Amare Stoudemire will be rested vs. the Lakers on Sunday.

Devin Harris will also pick up a DNP-CD as a precaution, and Chandler Parsons (knee) is out, but everyone else is good to go. Stoudemire should return to action vs. the Jazz on Monday but it can't hurt to double-check his status.
