Carmelo Anthony Leaning Towards A Trade

Jackson will continue to explore trade destinations for Anthony this offseason despite the player's full no-trade clause, as he believes the team simply hasn't been able to win with him at the front of their offensive attack.

While speaking to reporters on Friday (April 14), the Knicks President concluded that Melo "would be better off somewhere else". The Knicks haven't made the playoffs since the 2012-13 season, though, which is especially troubling given that NY expected to return to the postseason this year after adding Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah last summer.

He'll also be in L.A., but he also took the time out to say he really he enjoyed playing here even with the losses, which of course surprises us because he's been on some very successful teams.

"I think guys will come here because they want to play with these guys that can win", Taylor said. Considering Jackson later said the 53-year-old Hornacek is a "young coach", he's clearly decided he needs to oversee things in order to make sure his beloved triangle offense - something virtually his entire team, led by Anthony, has rebelled against - is properly installed. The team missed out on the playoffs for the fourth straight season.

Jackson said Rose, who will be a free agent, expressed a desire to return to NY and intimated that the Knicks would consider re-signing him.

While Anthony can confound Jackson by refusing to leave, Porzingis could be the one to topple Jackson by refusing to stay.

Phil Jackson demonstrated during Friday's press conference that he is-how can I put this mildly-a big, stupid baby. It was a tough start to his Knicks career, and the center still has three years left on the $72 million deal Jackson gave him last summer. But that's the threat to Anthony, and frankly it doesn't sound so bad - collect $54 million while still living in your preferred city. The Knicks are hoping that potential landing spots for Anthony - the Cavs, the Clippers, the Celtics, the Wizards - all bomb in the postseason and become desperate, setting up a bidding war.

The love affair in NY is all but over between Phil Jackson and Carmelo Anthony. I think he had some concern this year about physical. Jackson would like to trade him. I mean, if you're happy about losing in the Finals, probably you got your head screwed on the wrong way because you go through the conference and you win the conference, you're feeling pretty good about yourself.
