Carmelo Anthony would like the Knicks to have more roster continuity from season to season, writes Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News. “I think that’s the most important part, just having some type of consistency, just a group of guys being together for a period of time and not just rotating in and out each year,” Anthony said. Bondy pointed out that Anthony has had over 70 different teammates and four different coaches since coming to New York.
Here’s more from the city that never sleeps:
- Anthony believes the triangle won’t work in New York unless there is more continuity on the Knicks‘ roster, Al Iannazzone of Newsday writes. “I don’t think guys can learn the [triangle] system right away being here for only a couple of months and then we rotate guys in and out,” Anthony said. “Guys need to be together for a long period of time in order for us to learn the system, master the system.”
- Anthony wants to be involved in courting free agents this summer and sees free agency as a huge opportunity for the Knicks, Iannazzone passes along in the same piece. “If you have an opportunity to make additions in free agency you should take advantage of that,” Anthony said. “I think every team wants to better themselves during free agency.”
