Amar'e Stoudemire and Monta Ellis are trying to make an NBA comeback for the 2019 season and are making headway with some teams this offseason.
According to reports by ESPN's Jordan Schultz, Stoudemire and Ellis will now be working out privately for nine NBA teams in Las Vegas from 6-7 p.m. on July 8.
Stoudemire played 14 seasons in the NBA and mostly known for his stints the Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks. He holds career averages of 18.9 points and 7.8 rebounds per game in 31.0 minutes. At 36 years-old, he has been out of the NBA since the 2015-16 season.
Ellis played 12 seasons for the Golden State Warriors, Milwaukee Bucks, Dallas Mavericks, and Indiana Pacers. He averaged 17.8 points and 4.6 assists in 34.8 minutes per game. Ellis is 33 years-old and has been out of the league for two seasons.
An NBA comeback isn't unrealistic for either of these players. Stoudemire has been turning heads with his dominating performances in the Big 3, where he's the co-captain of the Tri-State team.
They'll be hoping to impress the scouts that come watch their workout, and perhaps they will put on enough of a show to earn a contract to get back in the league.
