High-Ranking Knicks Official Tried To Convince Carmelo Anthony To Stay In 2017 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Dec 10, 2019 7:56 pm

At least one high-ranking official with the New York Knicks visited Carmelo Anthony before his trade to the Oklahoma City Thunder to try to convince him to stay with the franchise.


Anthony believed it was time to part ways after what had happened during the 16-17 season with Phil Jackson. Jackson had already exited the franchise by that point.


The Knicks acquired Enes Kaner, Doug McDermott and a second round pick that turned into Mitchell Robinson for Anthony.
