Will Melo Stay? Reports Say Carmelo Anthony Will Not Wait For 2015
The question of Carmelo Anthony’s future has been a constant storyline in the NBA this season.
If reports hold true, the New York Knicks superstar might not have the patience to for the Knicks to empty up some cap room to become a contender once again.
The Knicks’ salary-cap situation is such that if they re-sign Anthony they’ll have to wait until 2015 to add that second star. For one, I’m hearing that Anthony’s camp is interested only in the summer of 2014. They don’t want to hear about 2015. And they’re right. Anthony will be 31 with a lot of NBA miles on his legs before reinforcements arrive.
Yes, the Knicks can pay him more. But with a team full of superstars and an underachieving team, can Melo afford to wait until the team can sign a player like Kevin Love or even Rajon Rondo.
Where can Carmelo realistically end up if its not New York? Los Angeles? I’m not sure Kobe Bryant & Carmelo are a good fit. Dallas Mavericks, mmm not quite sure. Chicago Bulls with Derrick Rose would be a nice fit.
No matter where he ends up, it is surely going to be a busy Summer for Melo and the Knicks.
