Ellis, 33, hasn't played in the NBA since 2017, when he averaged 8.5 points for Indiana. Stoudemire, 36, last saw action in 2016, when he averaged 5.8 points for Miami.
A six-time All-Star, Stoudemire averaged 18.9 points and 7.8 rebounds in 14 seasons, many of which were marred by injury. Ellis averaged 17.8 points in 12 seasons, with a high of 25.5 with the Warriors in 2009-10.
