New York is still attempting to recover from playing hos to the highest scoring NBA All-Star game in league history.

Sunday night saw the West Conference emerge victorious at Madison Square Garden and the home of the New York Knicks.

The Knicks saw their biggest star Carmelo Anthony take to the court on Sunday night to represent the East and take part in potentially his final performance of the season.

But with the league now on hiatus for the All-Star break, the Knicks have been the team to give us a big issue.

It was announced on Monday that the Knicks would waive the center and the two agreed a buyout on Monday daytime.


It hasn't taken long however for Stoudemire to find a new team as he has now committed to joining the Dallas Mavericks.

Stoudemire's deal with Dallas won't become official until Wednesday when he clears waivers and is a free agent.

Stoudemire will now add to the front court depth of the Mavericks - something the team sorely needs.

It had been rumoured that more than one play-off placed team had been interested in securing the services of Stoudemire.

With the LA Clippers and Phoenix Suns both rumoured to be interested in Stoudemire, the Knicks star has joined a team that has already secured the services of Boston Celtics star Rajon Rondo this season.

A big step up

Stoudemire is now days away from making a huge step up the league after departing the lowest ranked team.

The Knicks have only won 10 games all season and have won the least of any team in the league.

Stoudemire now moves up to the Mavericks who are 36-19 on the season and currently occupy the fifth seeded position in the Western Conference.

Competing in the highly competitive Southwest division amongst three other play-off chasing teams, Stoudemire will offer some much needed depth to the Mavericks in the second half of the season.
