Amar'e Stoudemire believes his end with Knicks is near


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2015) It's very possible forward Amar'e Stoudemire has played his last game as a member of the Knicks.

Following Wednesday night's 89-83 loss to the Magic, Stoudemire reflected on his time in New York to reporters, hinting that it seems likely he won't be with the team after the All-Star break ends.

"Nothing's changed yet," Stoudemire said, via Newsday. "But it's definitely kind of a bittersweet moment, going over all the joyful things that I have accomplished in New York.''

Stoudemire said that he will use the break to decide whether to ask for a buyout so that he can sign with a team in playoff contention.

The Knicks are a league-worst 10-43 with no signs of immediate improvement.

Stoudemire is averaging 12.0 points and 6.8 rebounds per game this season. At age 32, he appears to understand that opportunities are running out when it comes to chasing an NBA championship.

"Playing these 13 years and through the few injuries, Father Time is ticking,'' Stoudemire said. "So you want to take advantage of good health when you can and try to win a championship when you can."


Report: Suns are 'serious contenders' for Knicks F Amar'e Stoudemire


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2015) Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire will reportedly use the All-Star break to decide whether to ask the front office for a contract buyout. If he reaches an agreement to leave the Knicks, the Suns are likely "serious contenders" for his services, according to Jordan Schult of Huffington Post Sports and NBC Sports Radio.

Stoudemire was the No. 9 overall pick by the Suns in the 2002 NBA Draft. He spent his first eight seasons in Phoenix before leaving for New York. He averaged 21.4 points, 8.9 boards, 1.3 assists and 1.4 block per game over that span.

Stoudemire, 32, is in the final year of a five-year, $100 million contract, with $23.4 million due this season. His buyout may depend on how much money he decides to give up on his current contract. If he reaches a buyout, he'll likely catch on with a contender for a potential playoff run. The Mavericks and Warriors are also reportedly in the mix. Stoudemire averaged 12.2 points and 6.9 rebounds in 35 games.


Amar'e Stoudemire on Knicks: 'I truly gave it all'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2015) Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire could be facing his last game with the Knicks Wednesday as he contemplates accepting a contract buyout during the All-Star break, and he told the New York Daily News after Tuesday's practice that he has no regrets about his time with the team.

"I gave it all, man. I gave my heart, my body and my soul. I truly gave it all," Stoudemire said. "I’m still giving. I’m still dedicated to the game of basketball. I’m still dedicated to New York State and the New York Knicks.

"We never had a championship, (but) the excitement and the hope is there. Before it was a void of hope and happiness around the New York Knicks. After I signed, the hope became greater, the happiness was there, the excitement came, the Garden was rocking. We did make a few playoff pushes throughout those years. . . . Even though this season hasn’t panned out well, I notice that the fans are still very proud to be New York Knick fans."

According to the Daily News, Stoudemire's agent will be in New York this week and is expected to meet with team president Phil Jackson in the coming days to discuss the situation.

"We got to see when that time comes. As of right now my loyalty is with New York and that’s what it’s going to be," Stoudemire said. "I’m sure eventually we’ll get to the conversation where we try and iron things out. We’re not there yet."

If he accepts a buyout, Stoudemire would be looking to catch on with a contender for a potential playoff run. He's averaged 12.2 points and 6.9 rebounds in 35 games.

(2/8/2015) Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire scored 13 points on 5 of 12 shooting from the field and grabbed six rebounds in New York's 106-92 loss to the Warriors Saturday.

Coach Derek Fisher is hoping to see more of him as the season goes on.

"He was really good for us [Friday] night and tonight," Fisher said. "He's excited about being back … and we're looking forward to having him with our group on a nightly basis."

Stoudemire, who missed five of the Knicks' last eight games with an ankle injury, will continue to play until he can't.

"If I feel good enough to play, I’m going to," he said. "I'm not one of those guys that sits out just because. I want to play, I feel good. That’s a positive."

He also doesn't think this was his last game in New York with the Knicks.

"I'm still a New York Knick and I plan on being here for a while. Until things change," Stoudemire said.

The Knicks are 14 1/2-point underdogs at home Saturday.

According to a previous report, Stoudemire has indicated he will use the All-Star break to determine whether to ask the Knicks front office for a contract buyout.

Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire could seek a buyout after All-Star break


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire will use the All-Star break to decide whether to ask the front office for a contract buyout, reports Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports on Friday.

"It's not an easy decision to make," Stoudemire said. "Over time, we will see how things pan out. You give yourself a break during the All-Star break. You think about it with your family. …That will give me a good solid week on how to weigh out the rest of the season."

Stoudemire, 32, is in the final year of a five-year, $100 million contract, with $23.4 million due this season, which makes him "virtually impossible" to trade before the Feb. 19 deadline, according to Spears. The plan for Stoudemire, who has missed 16 of the last 21 games due to an assortment of injuries, is to land with a playoff contender, if the Knicks buy out his contract. The Clippers, Mavericks and Trail Blazers could all be possible destinations for Stoudemire, who is averaging 12.2 points and 7.0 rebounds per game this season.

"All possibilities at this point are still open," Stoudemire said. "The door is still open for that. But at the same time, I am with the Knicks now. I got to stay optimistic about things and what we are doing here. I can't really focus on the future because it's not here.

"We still have a couple weeks left before it's all said and done. It's a decision I have to make with my family to figure out the best scenario for the near future."


Knicks hope to have Amar'e Stoudemire, Cole Aldrich back Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) Knicks coach Derek Fisher said he is hoping to have forward Amar'e Stoudemire (ankle) and center Cole Aldrich (shin) back in action Friday night against Brooklyn, per the team's official website.

Stoudemire has missed 16 of the last 21 games for the Knicks while nursing his injured ankle. The team is taking a cautious approach with Stoudemire moving forward, so he could sit out the back end of a back-to-back set on Saturday, if he does play Friday. Stoudemire is averaging 12.2 points and 7.0 rebounds per game this season.

Aldrich has missed the last two games for New York while dealing with the shin injury. He is averaging 5.4 points and 5.3 rebounds per game this season.

New York is a 6-point underdog at Brooklyn, per VegasInsider.com.


Amar'e Stoudemire doesn't expect to be traded


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire isn't anticipating a trade before the Feb. 19 deadline.

The Knicks have been the worst team in the NBA this season at 10-39, with the organization needing to possibly reconstruct the roster. Stoudemire signed a five-year, $100 million contract in 2010 and will be a free agent after this season.

The Knicks could try and get some value out of him since there's a good chance he'd leave in free agency. However, Stoudemire doesn't think that will happen at this time.

“I don’t think there will be something done this season [in terms of a trade] but the future is within their hands and my health,” Stoudemire said, via SNY. “I just want to make sure I stay healthy for the rest of my career and we go from there.”
