Stephen A. Smith: Carmelo Anthony's Top 3 Destinations

Is Carmelo Anthony going to be traded?

The NBA trade deadline is three days away and, following the stunning DeMarcus Cousins trade late Sunday night, it appears we're in line for some crazy moves.

The biggest name on the trade market, as it's been all season, remains Carmelo Anthony.

Anthony, a 10-time All-Star, has a no-trade clause in his contract, so he controls his future in New York.

Is he going to be traded?

Stephen A. Smith addressed this on ESPN this morning, naming three teams as ideal destinations for Anthony.

"The Knicks are probably going to hold onto him, but he’d waive his no-trade clause if he had an opportunity to go to Cleveland, the Los Angeles Clippers or the Boston Celtics,” Smith said during a SportsCenter segment. “Those are the three teams he would consider most. Not saying they’re the only ones, but they’re definitely the top three on his list.”

Those are the three teams mentioned most with Anthony, so this doesn't come as much of a surprise.

It's time to move on, Melo.
