Carmelo Anthony Trade Talks On Hold

JULY 14, 9:13am: As the Knicks regroup on the Anthony front, the team’s primary hope is that Carmelo will consider expanding his wish list beyond Houston and Cleveland, a source tells Marc Berman of The New York Post.

Anthony, who has a no-trade clause, could veto any deal, but has expressed a willingness to waive that NTC for the Rockets or Cavaliers — the Knicks have been unable to work out a deal with either of those teams, so adding more clubs to the list could increase their chances of getting something done.

Berman also notes within his story that the Nuggets were among the clubs who explored getting involved in three- or four-team trade talks when those discussions were active.

JULY 13, 9:04pm: The Knicks have paused Carmelo Anthony trade talks with both the Rockets and Cavaliers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.com. New York would like to reopen dialogue with Anthony about “reincorporating him into the organization.”

It was previously reported that Anthony’s representatives wanted to see a deal get done this week. The Rockets and Knicks were looking to pull off a multi-team trade and were searching for a fourth team to help facilitate a deal. The two sides discussed a three-team deal last weekend, but those talks reportedly “stalled.”

Scott Perry’s pending arrival as GM has made team executive Steve Mills reconsider his stance on trading Anthony, the pair of scribes add. Perry, who currently is the Kings VP of basketball operations, and the Knicks have agreed on a deal to make the executive the team’s new GM. However, Sacramento and New York still need to work out compensation in order to finalize Perry’s hiring.

The Knicks would like Anthony to meet with the team’s new front office as well as coach Jeff Hornacek soon, but the pair of ESPN scribes add that it’s unlikely Anthony will respond with eagerness to stay with the franchise.

The Rockets acquired Chris Paul two weeks ago and since the trade, Houston has been cited as a potential landing spot for Anthony. In order to bring the 10-time All-Star aboard, Houston would presumably need to move Ryan Anderson, who will earn more than $19.5MM during the 2017/18 campaign. New York has no interest in adding Anderson to the team.

      If melo is willing to give substantial money up then I could see it.

      If Melo was going to be bought out, Jackson would still have a job. Dolan was not willing to pay Melo his 50 just to see him help some other franchise. It’s actually smart on the Knicks front office to try and repair the damage done. They don’t want to lose Melo for nothing and it’s proving difficult to get the assets in return that the Knicks would want. Smart play would be to start the season with Melo and let him increase his value so that they can trade him around the deadline. Something I’ve been saying that they should do since they fired Jackson.

    Just trade him already for goodness sake. It’s long overdue he should of been dealt years ago. This is turning into a Cousins scenario all over again

      Did you read the article or nah? They literally state that they haven’t had a good offer from the only 2 teams he would approve a trade to, trust me they’re trying

    It would be cheaper to trade for Ryan Anderson and then buy him out, while maybe getting a future draft pick in the deal as well.

      Not necessarily. Anderson is guaranteed 61 million the next three years compared to Melo’s 54 million the next two years. The fact they are having trouble finding a team to take Anderson’s contract shows how little value he has and he knows he’s not going to get that kind of money if he gets bought out. So no way he takes less than the 61 million he is owed.

        I rather keep Melo, KP wants him around and he was never the problem it was Phil.

        • Agreed with Dionis. Melo is what he is, a scorer. The Knicks management team just failed to put the right pieces together. Rose wasn’t the right player and Noah should’ve never been signed. Instead of throwing money away, they should’ve held back and waited for the right players to become available. The Hardaway signing is just another example of poor management, now leaving them with no cap room for next year. I’m sure Dolan’s impatience contributed as well in some of these poor decisions and his loyalty to bad management digs an even deeper hole.

    Hopefully Perry can keep Melo around and straighten everything out. Bring in Rondo.

      Nope. No Rondo. No one is debating is skill level. It’s his piss poor attitude that no one wants in their locker room. The only coach to be able to keep Rondo in check was Rivers and probably only because Garnett was there. The only logical choice right now would be for the Knicks to explore trades surrounding O’Quinn and Lee. Possibly with the Suns but the Suns will probably want a pick attached to any trade and thankfully the Knicks aren’t giving them up. If they can’t trade for a solid veteran of them look into bringing back Jennings. He is a solid defender and a pass first pg. Yea his shot was off last season but if you’re looking for a cheap mentor for Ntilikina, then Jennings is your man.

      Melo goes to the Rockets RIP Warriors. Harden can rely on Melo to score on offense while CP3 sets everyone up. Melo is not stupid and knows his role would change but he would no longer need to carry a team and just spot up and shoot and boy Melo can sure shoot the ball.

      • Dionisio, how old are you and are you on prescription or recreational drugs?

        The Warriors are one of the top 2 way teams in the league, the Rockets with or without Melo do not play anything resembling average defense. They are a team of volume shooters who had a career best year last at shooting the 3 ball.

        The only thing that can beat the Warriors is Father Time or a drastic injury to a core 4 player.

        Honestly you should be banned from ever speaking in a basketball forum after that last comment!

          The Warriors are a great team but Melo,Paul, and Harden would all sacrifice to win. The Warriors won’t repeat I’ll tell you that much.

              Just because people don’t post asinine and blatantly stupid comments doesn’t mean they don’t follow a website or know the sport.

              Maybe rename yourself something other than genius and people could take you seriously.

            Sacrifice what? Minutes with the ball in their hands? They would need to dig in and play defense, team defense, for 48 minutes, for 82 games, and then all the way to the Western conference finals. The real issue there is that Dantoni doesn’t have a defensive mind. Never had never will. That’s why him and Harden get along so well.

        • @BBBD- Rockets don’t play anything resembling defense? Granted, Harden plays defense like a matador and their coach has never drafted a defensive strategy, but with Paul, Ariza and Capela in the lineup as current starters, it’s not as bad as it looks. Paul will certainly help out on perimeter.

        Sorry Melo to the Rockets does not make them the Warriors kryptonite. The Warriors are hands down without question the best two way team in the league. And they’re younger so unless major injuries plague the Warriors the Rockets still lose in 6 to the Warriors with Paul and Melo. The happiest person on the planet right now might just be Mike Dantoni haha.

    There’s just so much working against a Melo trade for them to get decent value and for someone to be able to take on the salary. He’d likely have to waive most of his trade kicker, if not all of it, and there are only a few teams that could probably make a move for him, where it also makes sense, but then the question is if he’d waive the NTC. There is no iteration of a deal where I can see Houston or Cleveland being able to trade for him…

    With that being said, with Phil Jackson finally gone, they theoretically could try to put something around Melo and Porzingis to try and make the playoffs in the East, while Ntilikina develops, but while that was doable, yet difficult, b/c they’d have to get around Noah’s contract, they then gave Tim Hardaway Jr. $71 million for 4 years, meaning they’re paying Noah and Hardaway $36 million….Clearly, they were trying to disuade Atlanta from matching, but they kind of put a lot on themselves, considering the position they’re in with Noah. I like THJr, and I don’t think it’s a super exorbitant overpay, but I do question the necessity of making a move like that when you have guys like Mack going for $6 million, and Evans for $3 million, and Clark still out there, as well as Tony Allen, and then Simmons becoming unrestricted, and the same with KCP previously. The Knicks need multiple pieces, so it makes no sense to hurt your flexibility and spend so much on 1 guy right now

    Can Dionis be banned from this?? He continually posts the most idiotic replies to anything New York knick related.

    Sure let’s keep Melo and bring in rondo and win 35-40 games and try to get that 8th seed!

    The Knicks need to trade Melo and rebuild makes no sense keeping him or adding any vets over the age of 25-26. Dionis wants to see the Knicks keep running on that treadmill to nowhere.
