Knicks' Carmelo Anthony to Cavaliers or Clippers?

Almost six years ago, the New York Knicks acquired forward Carmelo Anthony from the Denver Nuggets in one of the biggest blockbuster trades of recent memory, believing they had found a young superstar to lift the moribund franchise back to the top. He will be left to address the latest round of the unusual relationship between the Knicks star and the man who signed him to the contract that was supposed to secure his future with the franchise, Phil Jackson. Finding a suitor that is approved by Anthony (the Clippers?) and willing to take on his contract and deficiencies as a player would be a hard task. Anthony called it "water off my back".

As indicated by both rumors and reports stemming from the meeting, Anthony clearly expressed his interest to remain in NY going forward.

As for the way the Anthony is now approaching the situation, Hornecek says he couldn't be doing a better job. If you'll allow me to affix my tinfoil hat for a brief moment, I'll offer another possibility: The more people are focused on Anthony and his struggles to remain a superstar, the less focused they are on Jackson's inability to build a winning a team around his franchise player. "It's not something that I've thought about so far". "No, at this point, I don't need to hear that", Anthony said. "My say is what I can do, what I want to do and dealing with guys who are on my team". I haven't thought once about (waiving his no-trade clause) to be honest with you. But if Anthony decides that he wants to be traded, finding a deal that works, and a team he would fit in with, wouldn't be easy.

Well, at least they talked in person.




While no shortage of big names have found themselves tied to rival teams in recent weeks, the reality is that a lot of them will end up staying put.

Following his meeting with Jackson, Anthony addressed the media and acknowledged that he's focused on what truly matters: basketball.

Anthony may be numb to the constant trouble that swirls around Madison Square Garden.

Following New York's 108-107 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Monday, Anthony was again pushed on the subject of his stay with the team. While Rose has looked athletically explosive for the Knicks and added a needed dimension to their offense, his play also hasn't been conducive to wins. With this season starting to slip away from them, the talk of whether or not Melo should waive his no-trade clause has been brought back to his attention. "You get exhausted of it". "I didn't think it would get to this point".
