Knicks Notes: ‘Melo, Stoudemire, Bargnani

July 10 2014 at 10:41pm CDT By Charlie Adams

After Carmelo Anthony had meetings with New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, a source tells Jared Zwerling of Bleacher Report that Anthony was most impressed with the Bulls’ pitch (Twitter link). Despite the reported strong impression, ‘Melo is still deciding between the aforementioned three teams, says Zwerling, who adds the superstar forward remains intrigued at the notion of teaming up with Kobe Bryant as well the prospect of playing under the bright lights in New York again. More out of the Big Apple..

  • The Mavericks and Rockets are out of the running for Anthony, a source tells Sam Amick of USA Today. ‘Melo hasn’t given the pair of Texas teams any formal notice saying as much, but the source suggests the Knicks, Lakers, and Bulls are the only teams the superstar is considering.
  • The rumored conversations between the Knicks and Sixers about a deal that would send Amar’e Stoudemire to New York haven’t been able to gain any traction, writes Ken Berger of CBSSports.com.
  • Shedding Andrea Bargnani‘s bloated contract would likely cost the Knicks two first-round picks, multiple league executives tell Berger. Given that the Knicks don’t own their 2016 pick, Phil Jackson would likely have to part with Tim Hardaway Jr. to obtain another one.

    1. i think its probably going to be a few more days if both LeBron and Melo are going to Brazil for this game on the 13th…

      1. For Bosh to sign with the Rockets, he would have to do it before they match the offer for Parsons, so if Lebron doesn’t make a decision in the next 72 hours, he’d really be screwing Bosh over.

        1. not if Bosh wasnt planning on leaving Miami, which is what he has continued to reiterate since the beginning of the season over and over and over again

          1. he apparently loves it in Miami. These arent my words. He has said over and over again that he is 100% staying no matter what, so I dont really know what to tell you

          2. I think we all have heard he’s going to Houston for the max deal if lebron goes else where and it would make a lot more sense for him.

  1. This ‘Melo rumor makes way more sense. All these “he’s going back to New York” rumors made no sense in the context of “he’s waiting to see what Lebron does”. Why would he need to? If he was waiting to see if Lebron signed in New York (never gonna happen), he would have signed with New York ALREADY. It’s fairly obvious he isn’t returning to New York without Lebron which, again, isn’t happening.
