It's time for the New York Knicks to move Amar'e Stoudemire elsewhere.

The New York Knicks are on a roll as of late, and they’ve done it by beating some of the league’s best competition. So far, the eight-win Knicks have dominated the Miami Heat by 20 points, stormed back to beat the San Antonio Spurs on the road and have performed extremely well, despite two losses to the Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks, without one of their biggest names in the lineup, Amar’e Stoudemire. Considering the amount of success they are having without him, the Knicks’ front office should be doing all it can to move Amar’e Stoudemire off the roster.

The team has shown that it can dominate without him, and if you’re going to have a contract like his taking up cap room, you might as well be getting solid production out of it. It would be a daring move, but if the Knicks can pull the trigger on it, a solid deal would be to move Amar’e Stoudemire to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for Josh Smith and Johan Petro. As much as Knicks fans want to see Amar’e and Carmelo Anthony figure it out, they’re better off without him, and here’s why a trade to the Hawks makes sense.
