Atlantic Notes: Carmelo, Sixers, Raptors

Knicks president Phil Jackson has made it clear that his preference is to move Carmelo Anthony to another team this offseason, but if it were up to Lance Thomas, Anthony would be staying in New York. As Marc Berman of The New York Post writes, Thomas called Carmelo one of his “best friends” and a great teammate.

“I love him here,” Thomas said. “I love him as a teammate, love him as a competitor, love him as a person. Everything else is out of my control, but his approach has always been great. He’s an amazing professional. I’m not going to comment on what’s happening with him and the [Knicks] and trade rumors. I just know I love him as a teammate. I want it to work out.”

    This is exactly why the Sixers should move him for future draft picks. The process continues…. and will continue to continue.

        I wouldn’t really say delusional, but it’s unlikely. Actually, if the Sixers are unsure of his health, it’s a real possibility Embiid could be moved.

    Lol who cares what Lance Thomas has to say he’s a marginal NBA player who would barely have any role on a decent team.

    Anthony is a great competitor? Maybe, but not when he pouts and jogs back of defense after he doesn’t get the ball on offense. Knicks are stuck with him.

    Whoever wrote this stuff about Philly needing to account for a big raise for Embiid is delusional. Missed his first two season due to injury and got shut down last season with the same injuries. They can match any offer sheet so I don’t think they’re stressed. They need to be stressed about Simmons health and who to take at #3 in the draft that will mesh well with their team.
