Multiple league sources say the Spurs’ front office has researched and
debated pursuing Stoudemire to play alongside Tim Duncan .
Here’s what you learned going to the Garden Tuesday night: The
Timberwolves aren’t as good as their 9-37 record indicates, and the
Knicks aren’t going to join the Amare Stoudemire sweepstakes.
"It’s up to us to keep this going for another 35 to 40 games, whatever

once in a while, there should be an egg laid, but it can’t be very
Kiki Vandeweghe couldn’t speak specifically about Amar’e Stoudemire but
was presented with the scenario of trading for an established player

Stoudemire, one of the key names expected on this summer’s free agent
market, said he sees the Nets’ "potential" and would not automatically
"There are some teams you may say, ‘no way,’ " said the 6-foot-10
Stoudemire, who scored 27 points in the Suns’ 118-94 win that dropped
the Nets to 3-38 at the season’s halfway point. "I don’t think the Nets
