Former NBA star Amar'e Stoudemire, who became the most famous name to join Israel's basketball league when he signed with Hapoel Jerusalem last year, will not play for the team next season, the team said Sunday.

The 34-year-old will return to his status as a minority owner of the team, Jerusalem spokesman David Bassan told AFP. He had sold his stake ahead of last season to be eligible to play.

Jerusalem won Israel's premier league last season, with Stoudemire averaging 9.9 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game.
