Former Knicks center Amar'e Stoudemire is reportedly planning a comeback.
The 36-year-old Stoudemire, who retired from the NBA in 2016, and Monta Ellis are planning to hold a private workout for at least five teams on Monday in Las Vegas, according to ESPN's Jordan Schultz.
Both players, whose careers were derailed by injuries, are now healthy and hope to sign with a contender, according to Schultz.
Stoudemire's tenure with the Knicks was mired by injuries. After signing a five-year, $99.7 million contract to join New York in the summer of 2010, he played just 255 games in 4 1/2 seasons, being waived midway through the 2014-15 season.
He played 52 games with the Miami Heat in the 2015-16 season and retired from the NBA after signing a ceremonial contract with the Knicks.
"For parts of six years, Amar'e Stoudemire was the face of the New York Knicks franchise because of his excellence on the court and his dedication to our community and our fans across the world," Knicks president Steve Mills said in 2016. "When Amar'e asked us to retire as a Knick, we were honored to oblige."
Stoudemire averaged 25.3 points and 8.2 rebounds in his first season with the Knicks, but played no more than 65 games in a season from that point. After the 2010-11 season, his last one as an All-Star, he averaged 11.9 points and 5.5 rebounds.
