The Chicago Bulls made the hard sell for Carmelo Anthony and brought their stars along for the presentation on Tuesday.
Here are my most favored scenarios for how the Knicks should move forward in regard to Anthony and the roster over the next two seasons.
Jose Calderon believes he can make life better in New York for Carmelo Anthony and Andrea Bargnani. Nobody knows if he will get to play with both.
If there’s one way to change the present and future of the Knicks, it’s by facilitating a superteam in Houston with Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James.
LeBron James singularly orchestrated the Big Three union. And now that he has opted out of his Miami Heat contract, he’s once again the Alpha Male of pro sports. Teams are scrambling to find the proper finances and expiring contracts, flipping over cushions for salary cap coin.
Anthony has been linked to Mark Cuban’s squad — the Bulls, Lakers, Rockets and Heat have also been rumored to covet the dynamic scorer — and Chandler plans to help recruit the 2013 NBA scoring champion to Big D.
Meanwhile, it appears teams are salivating at the prospect of teaming up Anthony and his four-time MVP friend, free-agent-to-be LeBron James.
“I think he’ll take a little less money. I don’t think that’s that big of an issue. Obviously money is important to all of us. But I think Carmelo wants to win.”
LeBron delivered his message loud and clear, without actually saying a word. He’s willing to leave Miami. Just don’t expect him to land in New York.
Carmelo Anthony could very well walk away, yet for some reason Knicks fans will lose their minds, as if any chances they will ever have to win will go with him. How laughable.
A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that LeBron James has decided to opt out of the final two years of his contract with the Miami Heat and become a free agent on July 1.
Melo won’t just be taking his career into consideration this summer. The superstar forward, who has opted out of his contract with the Knicks, says his family’s needs will come into play, too.
Carmelo Anthony is putting himself on the free agent market. The star forward has informed the Knicks of his long-expected plans, his agent confirmed Monday.
Carmelo Anthony will opt out of the final year of his contract Monday, according to multiple published reports.
We hear from the rumor mill that Carmelo Anthony is the answer to the Heat’s woes. Makes sense. A team needs passing and defense and then gets a guy who can’t pass or play defense.
