"Knicks and agent Happy Walters worked out "finer" points of deal, 4 pm meeting and presentation w/ owner and then Amar'e must give final nod"
- Adrian Wojnarowski via Twitter.


Its about to go down bitches!! Now Amare alone is not gonna make a difference unless we get another big name max contract. While im excited for Amare to play for us, im more excited for his ability to bring other names. We have another meeting with Lebron on Wednesday so hopefully we'll have STAT on board by then. With that said.......fk Lebron, i want Wade instead.

After several hours of talks on Monday, Amaríe Stoudemire(notes) and the New York Knicks are on the brink of completing a five-year contract worth nearly $100 million, a source close to process told Y! Sports.

The Knicks and agent Happy Walters have worked out the contractual language, a source said, and Stoudemire has a 4 p.m. meeting with Knicks owner Jim Dolan. The Knicks are expected to make a more formal presentation to the All-Star forward at the meeting.

Stoudemire became the Knicks primary power forward target on Friday, but the team is still trying to recruit LeBron James(notes) to join him on the Knicks.

Stoudemire has had a whirlwind weekend in New York City, attending a Broadway play, a Yankees game and a Fourth of July party at Dolanís estate in the Hamptons.

He's had the knee and eye injuries, that's it. This guy isn't Greg Oden.

Greg Oden = Microfracture surgery
Amare = Microfracture surgery + screwed up retina + older

so yeah you're right, he is no greg oden.

His eyes will be fine, he wears goggles for christs sake. And if you can't get the Oden analogy, then he's not Jermaine O'neal.

And Darko shouldn't have gotten 20 mil and Gooden shouldn't have gotten 32 mil. At those rates, Amare at 100 doesn't sound too bad

I think you are missing the bigger picture. Amare is a great player still, wheather he deserves a max or not is definitely debatable but both James and Wade both expressed interest playing with him. I think the sooner knicks sign Amare the better their barganing will be. Also if Wade signs with the Bulls, we have a much better getting James since he can't go to chicago anymore. Same goes for Wade, if Lebron signs with Bulls then we might possibly get wade. Also this is one less free agent off the market. No way Lebron or Wade will stay with their current teams if none of those teams will sign a big free agent.

actually, i like amar'e and hope he does well where ever he goes.

giving credit to the suns medical staff isn't a baseless claim, as it's known as the fountain of youth throughout the league. if you think it's not, then i'd question your fanhood.

and does cursing and assuming behind a bandanna somehow make your accusations more credible? i made a statement that is obviously a concern for EVERY SMART GM around the league and this is the first reply you come up with? try having a conversation next time before jumping to conclusions.

Not saying he's not going to get injured, but he's in NY. NY undoubtedly has the best doctors in the country.

So does Cleveland, Baltimore, Minneapolis and Boston... All about the same level if not better than NYC.

ok, well David Lee isnt' comming back..so you have Amari...i don't think Lebron is gonna go to NY, forget D-Wade.....i don't know who you can trade to get Tony Parker (becuase a first round pick for the next 5 years won't cut it)..and Anthony isn't going to get traded there and i bet signs an extension in the next month or 2 anyways...

so you'll have

Amari......... and a team filled with guys who can't shoot or play D

championship!!!!!!

If the Knicks can get Chris Bosh as well, they'd have a chance of being a pretty good team. I just have a feeling Knicks are only going to get 1 star player though, and the rest of the team will be mostly average guys.

Bosh and Amare at the front court.

Team would give up about 120+ a game.

Grats on overpaying and giving 5 years to a bigman who:

-Can't play D
-Can't rebound
-Can't dribble
-Benefited from the fast-paced Phoenix system/Steve Nash
-Is one eye poke/knee tweak away from being done

Most pro athletes period are health freaks, but they also have team chefs/nutritionists that cook them anything anytime
