Carmelo Anthony was the New York Knicks franchise star for years. The 36-year-old is a free agent in Portland after a good season and could return to the Big Apple. According to media reports, this is linked to a different personality.
According to Marc Berman from the New York Post there is a reunion with Melo at the Knicks. A few weeks ago there were rumors that the forward could return to Madison Square Garden after three years in OKC, Houston and Portland.
Berman writes that Melo could imagine another engagement in New York, should the Knicks actually thread a trade with his good friend Chris Paul. The Point God has also been traded in the New York media for some time.
After the Blazers were eliminated from eventual champion Los Angeles Lakers, Anthony said that he would like to stay in Portland. “I hope I can stay. I’ve found a home here and I think it’s the best option at this point in my career.”
The forward got a chance during the season after a year off from the Blazers and knew how to use it. In 58 games, the thoroughbred scorer put on 15.4 points and 6.3 rebounds in an average of 32.8 minutes with a 38.5 percent hit rate from the triple line.
