New York Knicks' president Phil Jackson and Carmelo Anthony's relationship has been frosty to say the least. Gallinari and Chandler became solid regulars for a talented Nuggets team, and the trade badly depleted the Knicks' roster, especially considering Anthony could have just joined the team as a free agent the following summer.
Jackson referenced an article written by Kevin Ding at Bleacher Report to take his latest shot at Anthony. All these rumors get a lot of attention, but they all could be moot if Melo doesn't waive his no-trade clause. Melo could've jumped ship to the Chicago Bulls, a team on the verge of a championship, but the bright lights and scrutiny of NY were too much to give up. In December, Jackson told CBS Sports that Anthony "holds the ball too long" and that it slows down the team's offense; last month, longtime Jackson confidant Charley Rosen authored an editorial for FanRag Sports in which he wrote that Anthony "has outlived his usefulness in NY".
While Jackson's ultimate goal is to win a championship, he has ended up hurting the team, and his star player, more than he could have imagined.
Trade rumors could intensify Wednesday with the Los Angeles Clippers visiting NY.
There was an expectation around the National Basketball Association that Knicks management would start to search elsewhere for trade possibilities and bring Anthony different scenarios for his approval, but that process doesn't appear to have begun, league sources said.
On Thursday afternoon, Jackson returned to Twitter to write: "So after starting a storm with a misunderstood tweet, I offer this (peace sign emoji) our society is torn with discord".
"At the end of the day, regardless of what's being said, what's going on, you still got to come in here and play basketball", Anthony said.
O'Connor, while naming the best possible landing spot for Anthony as the Clippers, came up with a way to balance Los Angeles' roster and get the Knicks back a substantial package for Anthony.
Taking a more positive and far less defensive stance than O'Quinn, Anthony similarly chooses to leave the past where it is in relation to this season. "It's testing me", Anthony said.
The Knicks have also discussed potential Anthony deals with the Clippers and Boston Celtics, sources told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne and Stein. Plus, the Knicks must pay Anthony a $9.5 million bonus if he is traded.
