Is Carmelo Anthony Done in New York?
Phil Jackson was brought in years ago to help build a team around offensive star Carmelo Anthony. Last summer Carmelo Anthony wanted to waive his no trade clause if the Knicks didn’t make major moves in the offseason. After that Jackson made moves to trade for Rose and sign Joakim Noah.
However, this past week their relationship took a huge tumble when close friend of Phil Jackson’s friend Charley Rosen wrote that Anthony had “outworn his usefulness in New York”.
Antony requested to meet with Jackson about these comments and told Jackson he wants to remain a Knick. However, after making tons of money over the years it is time for him to focus on winning. If the Knicks continue to lose like they have this season it wouldn’t be surprising to see Anthony request a trade.
