Trail Blazers forward Carmelo Anthony appears to have a handful of suitors waiting to inquire about his services this offseason. Melo, who was featured as a starter in Portland last season, could be on the New York Knicks’ radar. According to New York Post NBA columnist Marc Berman, unnamed sources have indicated that both Melo and Chris Paul could be headed to the Knicks.
Berman, after acknowledging that Melo has expressed his desire to stay with the Blazers, hinted at the potential for the two aging stars to join forces with the Knicks.
However, if point guard Chris Paul makes his way to the Knicks via a trade, sources have said Anthony is likely to want to follow. Anthony and Paul are close friends who dreamed of playing together in the NBA and saw their alliance in Houston end prematurely.
Leon Rose, who now serves as an executive with the Knicks, represented Melo and Paul at CAA (Creative Artists Agency).
