The superstar is “largely aligned” with team president Phil Jackson’s grand plan after Thursday’s meeting, according to Yahoo Sports.
Four years after their messy breakup, the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James are at least talking about a reunion.
The Knicks went coast to coast on Thursday to let Carmelo Anthony know they want him to stay in New York.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Carmelo Anthony says last week’s sit down with Phil Jackson “went well.” But if he’s already made up his mind about free agency, he’s not saying.
It’s too soon to say whether Melo will bolt for greener pastures. But the Knicks superstar will be testing free agency unless he has “a dramatic change of heart,” according to the Daily News.
As WFAN’s Craig Carton reported, Anthony, who plans to opt out of his contract this summer, had a lengthy dinner with Knicks president Phil Jackson at American Cut in Tribeca on Tuesday night.
That’s the $33-million question. Knicks president Phil Jackson said Wednesday that he hopes Carmelo Anthony stays “true to his word” and is willing to sacrifice some cold, hard cash.
Ground-and-Pound? Thunder-and-Lightning? Johnson-and-Ivory? It doesn’t matter what you call it. It’s a backfield — a real, live, legitimate, threatening backfield.
Carmelo Anthony said he wants to stay in New York, and said he wants to win. It will be up to Phil Jackson to convince him that he can do both.
