NBA News: Carmelo Anthony Will Opt-Out On Monday, Become Free Agent

Since the start of the 2013-14 NBA season, it was expected that Carmelo Anthony would opt-out of the final season of his contract with the New York Knicks. According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, Anthony will file a notice on Monday to become an unrestricted free agent:

With the addition of Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher, the Knicks are hopeful that Anthony will eventually re-sign with the franchise. However, a recent report had the All-Star leaving New York if he ultimately decided to opt-out of his contract.

Since the beginning of the season, Anthony has been linked to numerous teams including the Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, and Houston Rockets. While the Lakers would have enough cap room to sign him this summer, the Bulls and Rockets are expected to make significant changes in hopes of signing the 30-year-old.

For the Lakers, there have been conflicting reports over the last couple months on their interest in the All-Star forward. Although some feel that his game would not compliment Kobe Bryant’s, Anthony remains one of the biggest free agents to hit the market come July.

In his 11th season, Anthony averaged 27.4 points and 8.1 rebounds as the Knicks failed to make the playoffs with a 37-45 record.
