Carmelo Anthony Believes Knicks Will Trade Him This Offseason

Carmelo Anthony Believes Knicks Will Trade Him This Offseason

Phil Jackson just gave the strongest indication yet that the New York Knicks will trade Carmelo Anthony before the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season.

There's no reason to feel good about the Knicks' future as a franchise as long as Phil Jackson, the coach, keeps undermining Phil Jackson, the team president.

NY went 31-51, falling well short of expectations with its third consecutive 50-loss season.

Any questions about whether or not Jackson will try to trade the 10-time All-Star were answered, and as long as Anthony obliges, we've seen him play his last game in a home uniform at Madison Square Garden.

Phil said meeting with Melo was not contentious, but he told him with direction of team he'd be better off chasing championship elsewhere.

Anthony, who turns 33 years old this offseason, has talked openly in the past about wanting to win in NY.

Owner Glen Taylor hopes the stability of having the same coach for two straight seasons for the first time since 2013 will help the team move past yet another disappointing season.

Anthony said Wednesday after the final game of a disappointing Knicks season that he was "open" to be traded this summer. But Anthony was eager to hear directly from Jackson. The Knicks' starting point guard, whom they used at point guard this season-he finished second on the team in total assists to Brandon Jennings despite playing 600 more minutes-isn't strong at the "point guard" stuff.

Jackson said he met with Anthony on Thursday. "You don't want to end up your career not winning", Jackson said. Porzingis also favorited Melo's "REALLY" post following Jackson's comments. But that's the threat to Anthony, and frankly it doesn't sound so bad - collect $54 million while still living in your preferred city.

"We just talked about how we could make things the best possible things for both of us", Jackson said, "(find) a place where he could go to be competitive and to be back in the hunt, and something that would benefit us moving forward as a young, developing team". Jackson would like to trade him.

"I'm of a belief that if they say that's one of the factors, of course I'm going to say that my expectations are pretty high for next year because we have the same coach and he's coming back", Taylor told The Associated Press on Friday.

Perhaps no two issues demonstrate that contradictory nature than Phil's opinions on Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose.
