It appears that Amar'e Stoudemire isn't ready to hang up his jersey and shorts just yet, as the former Knicks forward reportedly would like to return to the NBA.
According to The Post's Marc Stein, Stoudemire, 37, had returned to the United States from a brief stint in China and is working out in South Florida in hopes of making an NBA roster.
Stoudemire most recently spent time in the Chinese Basketball Association for the Fujian Sturgeons. In 11 games, he averaged 19.4 points and 8.3 rebounds per game.
The 14-year NBA veteran spent his first eight seasons in the league with the Phoenix Suns, where he was named the 2002 Rookie of the Year and made the western conference All-Star team five times.
Then in the 2010 offseason, the forward signed a five-year, $99.7 million dollar deal with the Knicks.
After some early success at Madison Square Garden, which included another All-Star appearance and leading the Knicks to the playoffs for the first time since 2004, Stoudemire saw his production slowly fall off--his stats in points and rebounds per game went lower and lower through each of his first four seasons in New York.
In his five seasons with the Knicks, Stoudemire averaged 16.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and just over a block per game.
Stoudemire was waived by the Knicks in the second half of the 2014-2015 season and signed with the Dallas Mavericks for the remainder of the year.
He spent his final year in the NBA with the Miami Heat before signing a one-day contract with the Knicks to officially retire from the league.
Stoudemire would go on to play one in Israel for Hapoel Jerusalem--where he won the Israeli Basketball League Cup and Championship--and in the BIG3.
