Knicks say Carmelo Anthony buyout not an option, are looking at trades

Ian Begley of ESPN quoted team president Steve Mills, who said that the Knicks have been in touch with teams, added that a buyout will not happen and that a return to NY in 2017-18 is possible. "So maybe with Carmelo or maybe without Carmelo".

Carmelo Anthony is still counting on the New York Knicks to resume trade talks soon.

Perhaps the Knicks would rather keep Anthony than eat some of his contract, but Mills would never admit if the team was open to a buyout.

The 21-year-old had been avoiding the team since his well-documented exit meeting blow-off, which resulted in then-president Phil Jackson openly talking about trading the rising 7-foot-3 star.

U.S. ambassador Haley indicated that the draft resolution is an ultimatum and not up for negotiation or substantial amendment. The US is in the process of completing a THAAD battery deployment in South Korea, supposedly aimed against North Korea.

In recent weeks, Anthony has prioritized his desire for a trade to the Rockets to join Chris Paul and James Harden over one to the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James, league sources told ESPN.

Mills added: "Carmelo's a great, great basketball player, and if Carmelo is with us, we will continue to develop our young players".

"In terms of Detroit, people talk about culture all the time, about winning cultures", Perry said. "We just weren't able to do it the way we wanted to, but we're moving forward". Mills and Perry said they have a strong relationship, with Mills saying the first-time GM would be given room to make decisions and recommendations pertaining to the coaching and scouting staff.

Though he often attempted to stay above the fray, Anthony, 33, seemed frustrated with Knicks leadership and engaged in occasional social media posts that pointed at his dissatisfaction.
