Carmelo Anthony reportedly informed Knicks team president Phil Jackson that he has no desire to waive his no-trade clause.
According to a report from New York Daily News‘ Frank Isola, Carmelo Anthony wants to remain on the Knicks—at least for the time being. Anthony met with team president Phil Jackson on Tuesday, and has no desire t0 waive his n0-trade clause according to the source.
Following Sunday’s loss to Toronto, rumors were swirling that Anthony might be on his way out after Anthony was forced to respond to a fairly critical article by Jackson’s long-time friend Charley Rosen. The relationship between Anthony and Jackson has never been stellar, and this year things have appeared to take a nosedive.
“If that’s the case, if that’s where it’s coming from, that side, I guess it’s a conversation we should have,” Anthony said Sunday to reporters. “If they feel my time in New York is over, I guess that’s a conversation we should have.”
Anthony has two years remaining in his contract. The Knicks are 18-24, and have lost 10 of their last 12 games. the trade deadline is February 23.
