According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the New York Knicks are very close to landing free agent forward Amare Stoudemire. This would be huge for the Knicks, who have whiffed on other big-named free agents.
“Knicks and Amar’e Stoudemire are making progress on 5 year, max contract, sources say. Framework of deal in place, talks continuing today,” Wojnarowski tweets.
This would help New York tremendously in adding a second big-named guy. As of now, it’s tough for most free agents to believe that the Knicks will get it going and become a contender any time soon. Getting Stoudemire would solve a lot of that.
