Latest Carmelo Anthony Items
Carmelo Anthony wanted to be a Knick a few years ago, and nothing has changed now.
The Knicks offered Anthony a maximum contract worth nearly $130 million over five years. He also met with Chicago, Houston, Dallas and the Lakers, though the Knicks were able to offer about $35 million more than any of them under NBA rules.
Any team with LeBron James becomes the favorite to win the Eastern Conference, let alone the NBA title. Still, the stunning move shakes up the power rankings, even for the Wizards.
At some point LeBron James will announce where he's taking his talents next season. When he does, options for free agent Trevor Ariza will either grow or shrink.
Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh might be waiting on LeBron James — "isn't everybody?" — before making their decisions. There's been no indication when James plans to do so.
From LeBron James rumors to teams clearing cap space to the Andrew Wiggins-Jabari Parker debate to all 60 picks, Thursday's NBA Draft will set the stage for a wild off-season.
Wherever James and Anthony land, watching the process play out will be a blast. The fate of Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh makes a nice subplot. So does Minnesota's contemplations of trading Kevin Love before he walks away for nothing (the scenario that brought Anthony to New York from Denver).
Now we officially know who is the most coveted free agent this year as Carmelo Anthony opts out of his final season with the Knicks.
Anthony has repeatedly said he planned to explore free agency this summer. Team president Phil Jackson told the All-Star forward after the season he may want to delay the decision and play out the final year of his deal, which would have paid him $23.3 million, but Anthony is going ahead with his previous plans.
