Speaking on First Take, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said the Knicks and Sixers have had conversations about a deal that would send Amare Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert to the Philadelphia. Although what the Sixers would send back isn’t clear, it likely wouldn’t be much more than a draft pick or non-guaranteed contract player, as the Knicks would do the deal to clear cap space.

The move would clear roughly $25 million in cap space for the Knicks, and would potentially allow them to chase another prime free agent. Although losing Shumpert would be a loss for the Knicks, it would likely be worth it to rid themselves of Stoudemire’s contract.
