Stoudemire’s agent, Happy Walters, acknowledged earlier Wednesday that he already has held preliminary conversations with the Knicks about a possible buyout for the former All-Star big man. “I will say that the Knicks have been really great to Amar’e . . . and super supportive. And Jim Dolan, the owner, has been really loyal over the years to Amar’e and really great to him,” Walters said on Daily News basketball columnist Frank Isola’s NBA Radio show on SiriusXM. “And so I think Amar’e feels that he has a lot of loyalty to the Knicks and Jim, good days or bad days. He certainly didn’t think his last year would be like it is now where the team is struggling, but I think anything is possible. New York Daily News

The NBA trading season officially ends Feb. 19, after which the buyout season—sort of a second wave of free agency—will unofficially commence. And that will likely signal the end of Amar'e Stoudemire's sadly ill-fated tour with the Knicks. Stoudemire's representatives are pushing for a buyout, and the Knicks seem inclined to grant it, according to sources. Having plunged into a rebuilding campaign, the Knicks have little use for an aging, sore-kneed former All-Star, and Stoudemire's contract expires after the season. Bleacher Report
