Is NBA’s Stoudemire Moving to Israel Soon?

Amar’e Stoudemire

Amar’e Stoudemire’s improved health and performance on the court were one of the few encouraging signs for New York Knicks fans this season, but the New York Post is reporting that there’s a chance Stoudemire won’t stick around after his current contract expires in 2015.

According to the Post, Stoudemire might play for the Israeli team — Hapoel Jerusalem — he co-owns as part of a four-man ownership group.

“We’ll see,” Stoudemire told the Post. “You can’t rule anything out. The future is unknown and so if I have an opportunity to [play in Israel] and am still in great health, it would be great. I have one more year left on my deal and we’ll go from there.”

While the option makes for an interesting potential change of scenery for Stoudemire, it seems unlikely that such a move would actually happen.
