Amar'e Stoudemire has committed to sign with the Dallas Mavericks, league sources tell RealGM.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) 2015 2月 17日
According to sources, Dallas owner Mark Cuban is gaga over Stoudemire’s potential to beef up the Dallas frontcourt that is lacking depth after backup center Brandan Wright was traded in the Rajon Rondo deal.
The Mavericks sense they are the clear front-runners for Stoudemire, despite Western Conference interest from the Clippers, Suns (his former team where he is a fan favorite) and Warriors.
According to a source familiar with Cuban’s thinking, Stoudemire might be a perfect match as a backup to Dirk Nowitzki. The Mavericks are fifth in the wide-open Wild West at 36-19.

Don't expect #Cavs to be contenders for Stoudemire. He's close to GM David Griffin, but not much PT available & he's deficient defensively— Jason Lloyd (@JasonLloydABJ) 2015 2月 16日
