Amar'e Stoudemire PF/C MIA 3 weeks ago

Stoudemire signed with the Heat on Friday, per team officials.

While he may not be the All-Star-caliber player he once was back when he played with Phoenix, Stoudemire can still serve as a suitable veteran forward off the bench. In 23 games with Dallas last season where he almost exclusively came off the bench, Stoudemire averaged 10.8 points on 58 percent shooting and 3.7 rebounds in just over 16 minutes per game. Seeing as though Miami already has a formidable starting frontcourt in place of Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside, Stoudemire will likely have a similar role and similar production next season.

Stoudemire ended the season averaging 11.5 points and 5.6 rebounds in 59 games between Dallas and New York. He appeared in all five of the Mavericks' postseason games but was unable to help the team advance to the second round.

Stoudemire appeared to settle into a comfortable role off the Dallas bench, averaging 10.8 points per game despite receiving eight fewer minutes than he did with the Knicks. He remains a valuable weapon on the offensive end and could be a nice bench option wherever he ends up this offseason. He may not be the All-Star he once was but his efficient scoring could make him a nice reserve option for fantasy owners in the 2015-16 season.

Stoudemire scored seven points (3-3 FG, 1-1 FT) Tuesday in a loss to the Rockets. He added three rebounds and one assist.

The Houston bigs exploited the Dallas front line in the fourth quarter, allowing the Rockets to grab a commanding 2-0 lead in the series. Stoudemire remains one of coach Rick Carlisle's best scoring options off the bench but he may be unable to pair him with teammate Dirk Nowitzki for the remainder of this matchup.

Stoudemire struggled in Game 1, finishing with 10 points (2-12 FG, 6-6 FT) in 16 minutes of action. He will look to bounce back Tuesday in Game 2 of the series.

Stoudemire was aggressive against the Rockets front line but he was unable to finish around the rim. He will have to play better if Dallas is going to extend the series.

Stoudemire (rest) will not play in Friday's game against the Lakers, FOX Sports Southwest reports.

The Mavs will rest a couple of bench players Sunday, with Devin Harris also getting the night off. Both Harris and Stoudemire could get extra minutes in Monday's game against Utah, as the Mavs will likely look to rest some starters.
