Amar'e Stoudemire Expects To Play Several More Seasons

Mar 26, 2015 1:58 PM

Amar'e Stoudemire believes he has several seasons left in him at the age of 32.

Stoudemire's Phoenix Suns' teammates, Steve Nash and Shawn Marion, are in their final NBA seasons.

“I’m the last man standing,” Stoudemire said with a smile. “I plan on standing for a while, by the way.

“No, no, there’s no way. There’s a lot of youth in these legs. I have a lot of competitive juices still flowing in me. There’s no way I’m ready to be the next man."

The Dallas Mavericks would like to re-sign Stoudemire in the offseason.

Stoudemire has averaged 9.8 points and 3.4 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game with the Mavericks.

“I love Amar’e -- love, love, love the guy,” Mark Cuban said. “There’s not enough superlatives. He’s just a great guy on the court and off. I just love his physicality. He just wants to win and is a great guy.”

The Mavs will probably offer Stoudemire a significant piece of their midlevel exception. Stoudemire, who says he can “compete at a high level for years to come,” will likely request a multiyear deal.

Report: LeBron 'Frustrated' By Kevin Love Not 'Getting With The Program'

Mar 25, 2015 7:43 PM

LeBron James has tried to make the situation with Kevin Love work, but he's grown frustrated by it, according to sources close to the situation. James reportedly is "frustrated by Love's inability and in some ways unwillingness to get with the program."

James pushed for the Cleveland Cavaliers to trade for Love last offseason.

Love can become a free agent this offseason or in 2016 when the cap rises.

The Cavaliers traded away Andrew Wiggins as part of the package for Love.

Omri Casspi Encouraged By George Karl, Wants To Re-Sign With Kings

Mar 25, 2015 12:38 PM

Omri Casspi would like to re-sign with the Sacramento Kings in free agency this offseason.

Casspi has been encouraged by the initial weeks of George Karl's tenure.

“I want to come back here so badly,” Casspi said. “I love the community and I feel like the team is finally moving in the right direction. George Karl’s system is great, and I’m not just saying that because I play for him, but because I really do believe this is the right way to play basketball. Spacing the floor. Moving, making extra passes, sharing the ball. Getting our hands on balls, deflections, then getting out and running. Unfortunately, coach Karl has not had a lot of time to teach us everything, but these last two games, you can see what we can become.”

Casspi is represented by Dan Fegan, who is also agent for DeMarcus Cousins.

Casspi's girlfriend is a native of Los Angeles who has practice law in Israel. If Casspi re-signs, she plans on taking the California bar exam.

“Shani loves it here,” Casspi said of his girlfriend. “We both do. This community has been through so much, and now we are on the right path. I want to be a part of that, especially with that new arena coming, coach Karl and Vlade here. When the time comes, my agent will talk to (general manager) Pete (D’Alessandro) and hopefully we get it done.”
