NBA: Carmelo Anthony Speaks Out On The Drama Surrounding The Knicks

Strangely absent from those players however was Carmelo Anthony, who you would expect to hear from considering he is the star of the franchise but it’s possible he had to be careful with what he said since he still has to deal with owner James Dolan. Following the Knicks disappointing loss to the Nuggets last night, Melo broke his silence on the overall drama that has taken over the team at the moment.

New York Knicks president Phil Jackson is reportedly working hard on putting together a deal to trade Carmelo Anthony.  In a recent meeting between the two of them, Anthony reiterated that he wants to stay with the Knicks and win in New York, but the very short meeting appears to have been just a formality as reports continue to come in about Jackson trying to trade him.


NBA Report: Phil Jackson Determined to Trade Carmelo Anthony; Called These 2 Teams

New York Knicks president Phil Jackson is reportedly determined to trade Carmelo Anthony.  Earlier this month, Anthony responded to an article written by one of Jackson’s former assistants which said it’s time to trade Carmelo.  Anthony responded by saying they should talk if that’s true.  Melo and Phil eventually had that meeting and Jackson asked Anthony if he wanted to stay with the Knicks.  Anthony reaffirmed his commitment to the team, but it was believed that Jackson is committed to trading him.  Yesterday another report came out saying the Knicks tried to trade Anthony to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Kevin Love, but the Cavs rejected the offer.  Apparently, it is true that Jackson is trying to trade Anthony because another report today said he called two other teams.
