Melo Drama Needs Resolution

Anthony Saga Needs to End

Knicks Expect Anthony at Media Day, Melo’s Camp Looking for Trade

With¬†Kyrie Irving’s drama-filled saga coming to an end, all of the attention shifts to Carmelo Anthony.

As the New York Knicks prepare to officially commence the 2017 season, the team’s front office fully expects to see Anthony present next week at media day after failing to trade their All-Star forward.

“When we set out, we said if there was something there that made sense both for him and for the Knicks organization, then we would strongly consider it,” general manager Scott Perry said. “Obviously, we sit here today and that did not happen as of yet.”

News broke earlier in the week that Anthony’s camp was desperately pushing for the Knicks to find a way to move the disgruntled star to the Houston Rockets. The Rockets have retooled their roster over the offseason and will feature Chris Paul and James Harden in the starting backcourt. Reports suggest that Melo hopes to leave New York and head south to form a Big-3 in Texas with the two superstar guards.

As far as how the New York organization expects media day to go, it doesn’t seem like there is much concern.

“Carmelo’s always been a professional. That’s one thing I’ve always respected about him,” Perry said. “So if he’s back here with the New York Knicks, we expect him to be the professional that he’s always exemplified throughout his career and move forward with him.”

No matter how professional Melo has been, the tension will remain as the season prolongs and ultimately, the Knicks will have to make a decision on the future of their franchise.
