With the NBA trade deadline only a day away, one rumor that has picked up steam over the course of the week is Carmelo Anthony potentially wanting out of New York. Several reports from the NY Post this week have claimed that Anthony and Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni are clashing, and on Tuesday the Post reported that Melo wants to be traded if D’Antoni isn’t fired.
On Wednesday, Anthony did his best to dispel the rumors using his Twitter account.
Another report — which may or may not have been the work of Anthony’s agents — claimed the Knicks have been tuning D’Antoni out and that he has lost the locker room. Naturally, Melo doesn’t want Knicks fans thinking he wants out already even if he does. He was depicted as the franchise’s savior at this time last year, so it would make him look really bad if fans knew he was demanding a trade. At this point, nothing that should happen involving Melo and the Knicks would surprise anyone.Google+
