A Carmelo trade might not be coming as soon as we thought.
On Wednesday it was reported that a four-team trade that would send Carmelo Anthony to the Rockets was at the “two-yard line.”
Now, however, it looks like Melo might not be leaving New York any time soon.
According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski, the trade-talks between the Knicks and Rockets have “paused.”

It’s important to note that the Knicks and former Kings VP Scott Perry just agreed on a deal for Perry to become the team’s general manager. Perry may want some time to get adjusted to his new role before dealing the team’s biggest star.
