As well as undesirable. Amare is not a top tier player anymore. Maybe he needs Lin back to be dominant but in these playoffs he has been non-existent. There is no way you give up a defensive beast who gives you the entire package for a player who is rapidly declining. That's why I hate ( HATE) long-term max salary deals. They are only meant for 4 or 5 people in this league. NY is basically stuck with Amare, unless the amnesty him.
