Knicks Reached Out to Celtics, Cavs, Clippers about Carmelo Anthony
The New York Knicks are reaching out to teams to see if they’d like to take Carmelo Anthony off their hands.
Knicks president Phil Jackson is working the phones trying to find a taker ahead of the February 23 trade deadline. That list includes the Boston Celtics, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
Anthony has a no-trade clause and two years remaining on his contract, which pays him $24.6 million this season and has a 15 percent trade kicker.
He’s due to make $26.2 million next season, and has a player option for 2018-19 for $27.9 million.
The 14-year veteran is averaging 22.7 points and 6.1 rebounds for the dysfunctional Knicks this season. Would you take him for the right price?
