The Milwaukee Bucks have landed their big man, and the Knicks are left searching for one.
There are still plenty of useful players available that can help the Knicks build for the future in different ways, whether it be in free agency or via trade.
Carmelo Anthony’s former teammate will sign a $16 million deal with an opt-out option after next season, CBS Sports’ Ken Berger reports.
Despite approximately $27 million in cap space, bringing a marquee free agent to New York could be a hard sell after the Knicks’ franchise-worst 17-65 finish.

Considering the Knicks’ current state, they would be best suited going after the younger group of free agents on the market.
Carmelo Anthony says he’s excited to get to work with rookie Kristaps Porzingis, despite reports that he’s upset with the Knicks’ performance on draft night.
I say with a slightly overt sense of pride that one fact about the man is now and forever indisputable. Anthony was never about winning.
Phil Jackson tried to placate his pricey player, then announced to the rest of the world that Melo is not the Knicks’ franchise. Is change coming? Time will tell.
