Hoops Rumors Community Shootaround 10/6/15

Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony shot down speculation that he would eventually become disenchanted with the franchise and ask for a trade, saying “hell no” in response to a reporter’s question to that effect. He also reiterated his faith in team president Phil Jackson, and added that he was bothered all summer by the notion that he wanted to be traded and the idea that he was against the team’s decision to draft Kristaps Porzingis fourth overall.

Anthony’s contract still has four years and more than $101.606MM left on it, and includes a no-trade clause, which means that Melo would need to be a willing participant in any swap. The veteran’s contract also features a 15% trade kicker, which further complicates any potential trade scenario. With the Knicks suffering through a 17-65 campaign in 2014/15, and the team not expected to be a playoff contender this season, the possibility certainly exists that the franchise could look to pull the plug and begin a full rebuild in the near future.

This brings me to the topic/question of the day: Should the Knicks look to deal Carmelo Anthony? If so, would it be in Anthony’s best interest to agree to a trade?

If you think the Knicks should trade Anthony, what team(s) do you think he should waive his no-trade clause for? What sort of return could/should the Knicks receive in return for the aging star? If you are for Anthony remaining in New York, let us know why. Take to the comments section below to share your thoughts and opinions on the matter. We look forward to what you have to say.

    He would accept a trade to the Bulls. One of the destinations he wants to go to in FA

    @arrongill Can you read? Are you stupid? He said, he’s not accepting a trade to any team. Plus, the Bulls aren’t winning a damn thing.

      Of course players would say they don’t want to leave their current teams by trade unless their stupid as markieff Morris. If you come out and publicly say you want a trade you get a bad rep

    If the Knicks wanted to trade Melo they should have made a push to send him to the Lakers on draft night.

    I think ‘Melo and the Knicks are attached at the hip. Even when he and the team aren’t doing so well, he gets plenty of attention. That has value.

    There are a lot of ifs but if Melo is Melo and if the moves Phil made pan out as they could, the team is one star player away from competing in the East for a spot in the finals. Slip the right piece in next season and tell me who they can’t beat in the East?

  6. Juan Manuel

    It would be a win-win situation but i’m sure Carmelo wants to play out his contract with the Knicks.
