West took NBA’s third-largest paycut this summer

It was already well-chronicled that David West has accepted a $10.5 million paycut after willingly opting out of a lucrative contract in Indiana to sign with the Spurs for the veteran's minimum of roughly $1.5 million. Hoops Rumors put that sacrifice into perspective on Monday with a list of the NBA's largest paycuts this summer, where West ranks third behind Amar'e Stoudemire ($19.7 million) and Jeremy Lin ($12.8 million).

What can Amar'e Stoudemire bring to Miami?

The Heat were able to pick up former All-Star Amar'e Stoudemire during the free agency period. We take a look at how he'll find success in Miami. When I think of Amar'e Stoudemire, really only two things come to mind: beautiful Steve Nash-led pick and rolls and thunderous dunks. While this obviously doesn't represent the Amar'e Stoudemire of the present, it will eventually reflect his legacy. I was personally elated when Miami signed Stoudemire, not only because they've taken steps to fill gaps in the roster, but also because of the experience Amar'e brings to the table. The Heat aren't...

Amar'e Stoudemire discusses why he chose to join the Miami Heat

The former All-Star spoke to the local media on his decision to join the Heat and how he expects to be utilized. Amar'e Stoudemire is not only excited to be the newest member of the Miami Heat but thrilled at the opportunity to be able to stay in South Florida, where he's lived for several years, and be close to his family and friends. In a conference call to reporters on Tuesday, Stoudemire outlined the many reasons why he took a discount to help strengthen Miami's depth. "I think, for one, I believe that the team that we're establishing can be a contender in the East for sure," he said....

Taking stock of the Heat's salary cap scenario for this season and beyond

The Miami Heat's salary cap machinations have changed substantially with their latest moves over the offseason, primarily as a result of how Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade and Luol Deng returned to the team.

Dwyane Wade officially re-signs with the Miami Heat

Wade returns to lead a resurgent Heat squad eager to make some noise in the East next season. Moments after the Miami Heat announced the signing of free agent Amare Stoudemire, the expected re-signing of Dwyane Wade was also made official on Friday. "For over a decade, Dwyane has embodied what it means to wear the Miami HEAT uniform," said Heat President Pat Riley. "He has been the pillar and constant of this organization, and is a true champion in every sense of the word. We are thrilled that Dwyane has re-signed and will lead us as we look to win another NBA Championship." As per club...

Amar'e Stoudemire signs with the Heat on a 1-year deal

The Maverick for 23 games will not return to Dallas. Free agent center Amar'e Stoudemire has signed with the Miami Heat on a one-year deal worth about $1.5 million, the team announced late Friday afternoon. Stoudemire played 23 games with the Mavericks last season after he was bought out of his contract with the Knicks. While he proved his low post scoring was still a weapon, Stoudemire did little in the way of defense and the Nowitzki/Stoudemire front court combinations were dreadful to watch. While I wish Stoudemire the best, he just wasn't a great fit next to this iteration of Dirk and...

Green put pen to paper late Thursday to become the newest member of the Heat. Free agent guard Gerald Green quickly agreed to terms with the Miami Heat on the first day players could sign with their teams and he was officially signed soon afterwards. Green's signing caps a busy day for the Heat, who not only signed starting point guard Goran Dragic -- a former Phoenix Suns teammate of Green -- but also reportedly entered negotiations with free agent Amar'e Stoudemire and reached out to Marcus Thornton.

3 minimum salary reclamation projects for the Mavericks roster

The team has a solid track record of taking players and turning around their reputation in the NBA. After signing Wes Matthews and DeAndre Jordan, the Mavericks will have an intriguing core. But the team won't have much money to spend to fill out the backend of its roster. Dallas needs to fill as many as five roster slots with minimum salaried players, the kind of deals frequently agreed to by NBA veterans on their last legs hoping for one more good playoff run. Rather than invest in a bunch of older one-way veterans like Amar'e Stoudemire to fill out its roster, the Mavericks front...

Lakers Free Agency: Lakers interested in Amar'e Stoudemire, according to report

The Lakers are interested in bringing Amar'e Stoudemire to Los Angeles following a rough opening to free agency. The Los Angeles Lakers are interested in signing veteran big man Amar'e Stoudemire, according to a report by ESPN's Chris Broussard. Stoudemire finished last season playing for the Dallas Mavericks after being released by the New York Knicks. While Stoudemire certainly isn't the free agent big man that Lakers fans were hoping for, he has proved that he still has something left in the tank. He may not be the high-fly act that he used to be, and he can't be counted on for 30+...
