Carmelo Anthony said the last 12 months have been an “emotional roller coaster.” Whether it’s dealing with drama with Phil Jackson and the Knicks, or dealing with marital issues at home. It has been a rough year for Anthony.
Now, Jackson is gone, and Anthony is still in New York, for now.
Former Knicks F Justin Holiday, who played in New York last season, and signed with the Bulls this offseason, is unsure what might happen next season with the 33-year-old Anthony:
“I actually have been thinking about that, and I do not know. Seriously, I don’t know,” Holiday told Paul Gant on the Go4it podcast. “One, that was something that he did not speak about, at all. Two, thinking about it myself, what would Melo do? I’m just not sure. You gotta look at everything, and how the media is toward him, and how they treat him. Obviously, that’s not good, but New York is like home to that dude. He has so many things going on there. It’s hard to see and figure out which way it would go.
It seems the Knicks are not moving very fast to trade Anthony. According to the New York Post, Melo is only looking to go to Houston. Anthony has a full no-trade clause, so he has all the power. At this point, Anthony is not even sure if he will be at Knicks’ training camp come September.
Maybe Anthony and the Knicks can make nice, or maybe Houston and New York can agree on a trade.
One never knows what could happen with this situation!
