Carmelo Anthony is reportedly on his way out of the Big Apple... or maybe not. On Friday, rumors of a blockbuster three-team trade which would ship Anthony to the Cleveland Cavaliers surfaced. Of course, in order for any deal involving 'Melo to go through, he would need to waive his no-trade clause.
In the past, the nine-time All-Star has expressed a strong desire to remain in New York, however, when asked if he would need to think about his future with the organization, who could potentially miss the playoffs for a third straight season, Carmelo told Marc Berman of the New York Post, “Not yet. Not yet. Not yet. I’m pretty sure I’ll have that conversation with myself, my family, my team [agents]. That’s not a conversation right now.’’
Not the strongest endorsement from Anthony. But, one day later, he has changed his tune. In an interview with NBA XM Sirius Radio, 'Melo was much more straight-forward on his future with the Knicks.
With the NBA trade deadline still five days away, a lot can happen between now and then, including Anthony's stance on remaining with the Knicks. So, stay tuned.
