After the New York Knicks put a reported in-the-works deal sending Carmelo Anthony to Houston Rockets , the New York Post‘s Marc Berman reports the team is hoping Anthony — who has a no-trade clause — would be open to a trade somewhere other than Houston or Cleveland, his previously reported trade choices. Via the New York Post:
According to the source, Knicks acting president Steve Mills wants to meet with Anthony to see where his head is at before proceeding any further.
The primary hope, according to the source, is Anthony decides to open up his wish list beyond the Rockets and Cavaliers, as he has a no-trade clause. The Celtics would’ve been in play, but they traded for Gordon Hayward.
