Knicks Trade, Free Agency Rumors: New York Closer To Dealing Carmelo Anthony?


The Knicks are lousy, and working for Jackson is no treat. However, Anthony's mindset now is to stay in NY and play for the Knicks. even though Jackson doesn't want him.

Wendy also brought up Melo's "Happy Birthday" message to La La on Instagram, scrawled on a photo of the outfit she wore to the BET Awards.

"He does want to stay in NY".

Despite Carmelo Anthony's scoring ability, the market may be limited for a 33-year-old with a bloated contract and after his failure to lift the Knicks to a playoff berth since 2013.

"Listen, If I could predict the future we would all be multimillionaires", she said. ESPN's Ian Begley said at this point the Knicks would prefer to trade Anthony.

One reason Carmelo Anthony wants to stay in NY with the Knicks is that he's been pitching a reality show about his work as a political activist.

Speaking on the latter, La La revealed that Melo's top priority is to stay in NY to remain close to their 10-year old son Kiyan.

"We'd like him to have success", Jackson said in May, per Nick Friedell and Ian Begley of"The opportunity is narrowing".

Whether it comes as a buyout or via a trade, though, it's tough to imagine Anthony being a Knick for the next two seasons. However, later reports suggested Anthony would welcome a trade to either the Boston Celtics or Los Angeles Lakers, under the right circumstances. "Maybe, if Carmelo Anthony and Phil Jackson weren't continuing their dram." class="local_link" >five-team mega trade was in the works that would've put PG-13 and Melo in Cleveland, but the Cavaliers couldn't find anyone to take Kevin Love.

"We've not been able to win with (Carmelo Anthony) on the court at this time".

The Cavaliers, Clippers, 76ers and Wizards are among the teams that have been linked to Anthony in various reports this summer. "I love him with all my heart, and we are the best of friends". Whereas with the Cleveland Cavaliers it appears it would be more than that if LeBron James stayed.
