NBA Rumors: Carmelo Anthony Leaning Toward Leaving For Bulls, Rockets

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

On Friday night, Carmelo Anthony met with Knicks officials and remained uncertain about how quickly Phil Jackson can turn the franchise back into a championship contender. As a result, Anthony is leaning toward leaving New York according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski:

New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony is leaning toward leaving in pursuit of immediate championship contention, and awaits the Chicago Bulls and Houston Rockets to clear the necessary salary-cap space to sign him in free agency, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

With the Bulls and Rockets favorites to land Anthony, both teams will try to clear cap space or engage in sign-and-trade scenarios with the Knicks:

Chicago and Houston front-office executives are working diligently on contingencies to clear the space to sign Anthony outright – or engage sign-and-trade scenarios with New York, sources said.

After failing to make the playoffs this season, the Knicks hired Phil Jackson as president and Derek Fisher as head coach in hopes of keeping the All-Star in New York. Unfortunately, it appears that those efforts will not be enough as Anthony is looking to win now after 11 seasons in the league.

Although free agency doesn’t begin until July 1, rumors have run rampant with Anthony being linked to numerous teams including the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat. While there are conflicting reports on the Lakers’ interest in the All-Star, most assume that they will at least reach out to him as they try to build themselves back into championship contenders.

    Funny, the guy that fought so hard to get to NY wants to leave now lol. And the Knicks had a pretty good team before he got there w/ Amare as the centerpiece and a nice supporting cast around him.

    Carmelo Anthony
    On Miami Heat Rumors …
    ‘Nothing’s Legit Until Deal Is Signed’
    6/13/2014 5:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

  • Salsa

    Carmelo and LeBron have not shown any interest in the Lakers publicly.

    • DG

      The Lakers have not shown any interest in LaBron or Carmeol publicly. It the media who is stirring the pot.

      • Computer Networking

        Of course they are interested in lebron and carmelo. It’s common sense. If they can get one of them or both, they will do what’s needed to make it happen.

    • iEATcelticBabies

      we want neither, give us ricky rubio and k love.. we will be good to go.. !

      • comrade24

        i LOVE your screen name on here! ROFL but Rubio? great international player, probably will never amount to anything in the NBA. not a good enough defender or shooter.

        • iEATcelticBabies

          lol, thanks comrade, RR is still young, with natural skills, if he can work hard and polish up , work on his jumper… you never know…manu ginobili came into the league an old man…but i hear you, could be a failed expirement.

          • comrade24

            Rubio’s been playing pro ball since he was 15 though. he may be young in the NBA, but basketball wise he’s older than his NBA career shows. I just don’t think it’s in his skillset to be a knock down shooter. Maybe i’m wrong. I’d like to be.

  • Pablo

    So Carmelo Anthony is going to leave $30 million dollars on the table?

    • Tune

      I don’t get the idea of your money mattering. Getting a ring or being on a contending team nets you much more money if you get stuff like shoe deals and such.

      • Computer Networking

        That’s true, but no one is going to leave 10 million on the table. The rockets can’t clear c space to get carmelo because they are 10 million over the cap now. Getting rid of Lin and asik puts them 18 million under. You have to at least pay carmelo 20 if you hope to get him. If he leaves, he goes to the bulls or the lakers.

        • Lakers Realist

          You obviously weren’t paying attention when Dwight left money on the table last summer.

          • Computer Networking

            I guess you think that when carmelo look in the mirror, he sees Dwight howard. These type of things is a case by case basis. Also, Dwight gave up one year’s pay. He didn’t really give up anything. Do you really think carmelo of all people is going to give that money up?

          • Lakers Realist

            “That’s true, but no one is going to leave 10 million on the table.”

            Those were your own words. I simply pointed out that Dwight Howard did exactly what you said no one would do.

          • Computer Networking

            You are right. I did say that, but I think that everyone has it wrong. Dwight chose not to play with kobe. It didn’t have anything to do with money. Remember, he gave the lakers an option of keeping him or keeping kobe. He requested for kobe to be amnestied. That’s why I don’t believe that howard is a good example of a player taking a paycut.

          • Lakers Realist

            Spin doesn’t change the fact that it has now happened. The precedent has been set. Every player will have different motivations. You can’t Melo is all about the money when you don’t know that for sure. Dwight made his decision, and good riddance, but reasons aside he proved that players are willing to leave money on the table to go to where they want to go.

          • Computer Networking

            That’s not what he proved. He wanted to stay in a lakers jersey. He just didn’t want to play with kobe and in da system. He told the lakers to make a choice. Him or kobe. All he proved is that his hate for kobe was greater than his love for money. One thing you are right about is that I can’t say carmelo is all about the money. That’s a true statement, but would you leave 10 million behind when you can get another team who is in contention for a championship to pay you 25 million? No you wouldnt. Golden state would trade their assets to get him, Houston would sell their souls. I think he should be patient. Stay with the knicks for this next season and wait to see what players they sign to help. They will have a crazy amount of money after this upcoming season to fill their roster.

          • Paul Roach

            Wrong. Dwight did not want to stay in a Lakers jersey. He didnt want to play with Kobe true enough, but the Lakers did not offer him the best future, and he did not want to be on a team that will pay Kobe 25Mil per because of his past, drastically reducing the Lakers’ chances of being competitive in the next 3-5 years. As to your idea of him seeing who the Knicks sign this year and waiting for free agents in 2015, I think Melo has waited long enough and doesnt want to wait and see if they surround him with enough talent to win. Melo’s best chance at immediate championship contention is with Houston. If he truly will take less money to win now, Houston is BY FAR his best landing spot. The Heat are aging badly and the Bulls cant build around a suspect D Rose not knowing if he will ever return to pre-injury form. Melo, welcome to HOUSTON!!!!!

          • Computer Networking

            If Dwight didn’t want to stay with the lakers he wouldn’t have gave them an option to keep him. Him or kobe. I agree with the rest. My only thing is there no feeling like the feeling of winning a ring in your home state in the nba. I saith Thomas is the only one that can contest to that

          • Lakers Realist

            “That’s true, but no one is going to leave 10 million on the table.”

            Were those not your very own words? Simply pointed out that Dwight already did exactly that.

    • Computer Networking

      I think he is going to stay in new york. I think it’s a scare tactic.

  • Bowling

    Houston,Bulls lol.

  • 3339

    Best fit for him imo is the Bulls. They are a great defensive team but they can stall on offense and D.Rose can’t really be counted on health wise. Adding firepower in Melo with that tough defense equals a very solid team that can contend. If Rose is healthy, look out.
    Lakers are going to have to strike gold with this draft pick, b/c the best players this year seem to be looking elsewhere.

    • comrade24

      agreed. plus, i would REALLY like to see Miami have some legitimate competition in the Eastern playoffs. it was like a leisurely stroll through the park this season and i think it’s really hurt them when they ran into real competition. They never got tested during the playoffs so they haven’t had to take their game to the next level yet. Spurs are killing them. Heat have lost their edge.

      • Computer Networking

        That’s why lebron is about to leave. Wade is on his last and bosh is inconsistent, at the same time, they just need a legitimate big man so they can move bosh back to pf. They would be back on top

        • comrade24

          i don’t think it will happen but it would be a dream come true if we could land Lebron this offseason. It would put us in immediate contention IMO. Healthy Kobe, Lebron, and a young prospect plus the deep bench and a defensive minded coach. would be nice but not betting on it

    • KB24

      Plenty of reports said that melo’s heart is in NYK BUT he wants to win now(PJ wants him to opt in and delay his FA,if melo will do this they will have more than 60 mil of cap space enough for melo rondo and possibly marc gasol to resign assuming melo takes a paycut(18-222 mil)…change topic though if cavs wants the 6ers to chase wiggins then they will trade their 3,10 and some players for cavs 1st, bucks will draft parker or exum coz embiid doesnt want the bucks,then the cavs will still get embiid(considering the cavs spread false rumors that his back aint healthy),cavs getting 2 1st rders instead of 1 wow,if the lakers will trade for embiid considering he is healthy then they will give up 7th,monroe,meeks,marshall and 2nd rders then wait for love nxt year, if not for embiid then it is for KLOVE AND kevin martin(amn him)…..another winwin situation for the lakers is if the lakers lure the kings to trade DC we can trade monroe,meeks,2019 and 2021 1st rd picks(we can trade this after the 2014 draft)while keeping our pick and draft smart,gordon or randle(if injury drags him down but doubt it coz jazz likes exum if not him it will be smart or randle for them celtics will go big with vonleh coz if they draft smart, the rondo traderumors will continue to rumble),then wait for kevin love scenario btw. This is the teams possible draftees. Cavs(either of the embd,wigg,park),bucks(parker or exum),philly(wiggins,exum or parker),magic(exum,vonleh or smart),jazz(randle or exum or smart),celts(vonleh or gordon),lakers(smart,gordon,randle(if injury drags him down)

      • Paul Roach

        Leave it to Kobe fan to make absolutely no sense at all of their future and the babbling ratard BS you just typed as to their draft prospects. The Lakers have spent way too much in the last 5 years trying to avoid a rebuild. EVERY team has to rebuild at some point, and the Lakers have finally come to that point and deserve to be bad for several years until they prove they can rebuild their squad the right way. They need to build through the draft, sign smart FA contracts and not overpay for overrated stars who are past their prime and will accept waaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy too much money to serve their ego(KOBE) and in so doing preventing the Lakers from having enough $ to sign free agents and quality players with experience who will help them climb out of the cellar they now own in the Western Conference basement. The Lakers deserve their crappy team and the horrible record that comes with it for at least the next few seasons, hopefully longer. The Lakers deserve to be on the bottom of the pile given their constant arrogance and overpaying ways for the last decade. Every team has to rebuild at some point. The Lakers have been long overdue for their embarassment HAHAHAHAHAHA

    • Paul Roach

      If the Bulls lose Boozer, Gibson and another plus future picks, a large part of their defensive prowess goes out the door. The Bulls wont be the defensive juggernaut they have been the last few years once the move the players and money it will take that would allow them the space to sign Carmelo Anthony. The bulls would have to give up too much to get Melo, leaving them nowhere near the defensive squad they have had the past 3-4 years. Melo to the Bulls depletes them of vital pieces of their stellar defensive squad of years past. Houston already has the pieces ready to move(Asik and Lin) that would free up the money needed to sign Melo. Houston is Carmelo’s best option and gives him the best and brightest opportunity to win a championship in the next 4 years. GO ROCKETS!!!!!!!!

      • jtrain23

        No offense, but I think this is the first (and hopefully last) time I will ever read the words “Boozer” and “defensive prowess” in the same sentence. Dude is a liability at best. I think I see your point though, and losing Taj would be a defensive hit. They would still have Noah, Butler (unless he is the one to go), Snell, possibly Hinrich on a minimum deal, a (hopefully) healthy Rose, and Coach Thib’s system. He can manufacture good defense with the way he coaches. The parts are somewhat interchangeable. Losing Taj does concern me though. He has unmatched intensity and competitiveness and is much improved on offense.

  • RUDY T.

    Bulls have this much in guaranteed salary already $63,402,653 that’s all the NBA allows teams to spend so unless he is signing for the veteran minimum in Chicago it’s not happening.

    The Houston Rockets are already way over the salary cap in guaranteed money and that’s without paying out Chandler Parsons his real worth.They owe players a total of $71,980,426 about $9 million dollars over the cap.

    Those two teams have no chance of getting Carmelo Anthony unless a team that has cap space facilitates it.

    Adrian has been off and on lately every journalist eventually hits a cold spell.But we have the cap space NOW.

    • Axl

      Bulls are going to amnesty boozer.

      • RUDY T.

        Oh i never heard that.Is Carlos eligible for amnesty?

        • karasoon4

          Yes he is.

          • RUDY T.

            Why thank you.Jerry is a known cheapskate owner.Maybe he prefers for a team with cap space to absorb the large contract of Carlos Boozer.Well hand us over Jimmy Butler and 2 first round picks and then we will ‘agree to that no but seriously they will look for a trade first and then a amnesty is possible of course.I was kidding we don’t want BS salary from other team stinky salary cap is not a reason to saddle the franchise with bad contracts.Lakers will be in the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes.

          • kookiebuger

            That would be a steal if they get Jimmy Butler, Carlos Boozer, and if they get a 1st round pick or two out of them.

          • Alex

            In the era of the cap, there is no such thing as a cheap owner. Jerry has no problem maxing out his cap, he does it every year and beyond that. Plus he didn’t shy away from chasing Wade, Lebron, and Boozer a few years ago. If the money is there he will do all he and Forman will do all they can to pull Carmelo or Love to Chicago.

        • comrade24

          yes he is. he might be a good, cheap pick up for the Lakers.

        • Computer Networking

          The bulls are just waiting. Boozer will get amnestied. I think the lakers might try and pick him up because he will be cheap for a year

      • Computer Networking

        That still leaves them under 20 million that you would need to sign carmelo and the bulls would still lack a decent shooting guard

    • A- J

      HOU can trade Asik along with Lin for a draft pick to make room for a FA while CHI can easily amnesty Boozer to create a cap space!

      • Ireland

        Yes that sounds feasible.

      • Computer Networking

        They have already tried that. No one is going to do that. Even if they did, they still wouldn’t be able to afford carmelo. Miami could trade bosh and get carmelo or the lakers could sign him outright, but that’s about it.

    • Computer Networking

      You are right. This is why carmelo is going to stay in new york.

  • simihillz

    Lakers should sign Lance Stephenson for 3 years 25-30$ million
    Sign Carmelo for max
    Trade #7 pick and Steve Nash to bucks for Larry Sanders and 2015 first round draft pick

    • VillainKing

      Lakers will not trade the 7th pick!!

      • Tyrone Von Gilyard

        Lakers are trying to trade the 7th pick with nash contract. Shows how much u pay attention. They been trying to shop that pick for a few players. The most realistic one was thaddeus young.

        • VillainKing

          I know that but the trade will never happen so its better that the Lakers will not trade the pick!!!

        • kookiebuger

          Why trade away a young potential all star and an expiring Nash contract?

          • flamecity24

            for larry sanders and another first round pick next year

          • kookiebuger

            Again, why trade away a young potential all star and an expiring Nash contract for Sanders who is kind of injury prone plus his off court distractions and a pick that can honestly range anywhere since they play in the weak east?

      • Computer Networking

        Yes they will. The lakers aren’t really interested in the 7th pick. If they trade the pick, they will have 37 mill for free agency counting they get rid of nash

        • VillainKing

          But for me its better for the Lakers to not trade 7th pick the this draft is very full of potential..

          • Computer Networking

            I understand, but look at the other side of the spectrum. Would you rather have young talent with experience and potential, or young talent with potential. I think it would be better to trade the pick and get rid of Steve Nash contract and sign some 1 year contract guys and maybe a couple of young up and comers like Stephenson to long contracts and bring the other guys on later. This strategy is the norm for the lakers. Kareem, shaq, gasol, odom. Allow these players to gain some experience and go after the ones who prove themselves later.

          • VillainKing

            I’m sorry men I don’t agree, the Lakers must not trade the 7th pick they should keep it..The players in the draft can contribute for the Lakers immediately in my own opinion..

          • Computer Networking

            With the players that will be available, I think that smart is the only sure thing. Everyone Else Is a gamble. I don’t disagree with you, I just believe that the better option is players who have been in the league for a couple of years.

          • VillainKing

            Ok CN thank you for sharing your thoughts I will not oppose your opinion and every one can share their ideas..I just believe that the better option is keeping the 7th pick and sign good players in free agency..

      • iEATcelticBabies

        this conversation is giving my testicles a nash.

        • VillainKing

          Just don’t read this conversation that is the solution..Lakers must not trade the 7th pick!!

    • Computer Networking

      I like that idea accept for Larry saunders. Trade the pick and nash for lowry

    • http://rantsofascorpio.wordpress.com/ Evan

      We don’t have a first round pick next year. So, that trade isn’t going to happen. I’m a fan of keeping that #7 unless a great offer is presented. To me, Smart can make an immediate impact and Gordon could develop into an exciting player.

      The Lakers could field a playoff worthy team by the start of 2015-16 season with a couple good signings and a solid 2014 draft. I don’t like the idea of trying to change everything around NOW by risking our future.

  • TheTruthKills

    He’s going to Chicago. It’s easier to go through the east than the west.

  • Ireland

    Lakers roster next season.

    PG Steve Nash+Kendall Marshall
    SG Kobe+Nick Young
    SF Doug McDermott+Xavier Henry
    PF Ryan Kelly
    C Robert Sacre

    • vdogg

      God i hope you’re wrong.

      • numb1lakefan

        hes way off he left out bazemore

    • TheTruthKills

      This is the most realistic lineup posted. If we strike out in free agency (which is very likely) that will probably be next season’s Lakers.

      • http://rantsofascorpio.wordpress.com/ Evan

        Except for the part about drafting McDermott.

    • Tyrone Von Gilyard

      Pg marshall-farmar
      Sg Kobe- bazemore
      Sf smart or deng
      Pf gasol if we can convince him to come back kelly
      C greg monroe rober sacre
      Worse case scenario for me and still that lineup a soolid contender

      • Chris Park

        Financial it works but you lost me at putting Marucs Smart at SF. The man is 6’3 how is he supposed to guard durant and lebron

      • VillainKing

        Smart is the perfect starting PG of the Lakers and Marshall is not a good starting PG he cannot play D..

      • http://rantsofascorpio.wordpress.com/ Evan

        Marcus Smart is a PG. Are you getting him mixed up with Gordon?

        Also, what’s the hype on Monroe? Isn’t he seeking a max contract? Is he worth it?

  • Muscle man

    Kobe and Melo is all they need. Just have three extra bodies there, so it’ll look interesting for the fans.

  • dayton

    Lebron no but melo yes

  • numb1lakefan

    carmelo will consider the bulls and rockets but didnt say he was leaning towards them nice twist…lakers will get first dibs on him just like they did with dwight they have been creating cap space for melo since last year

  • Kb24

    ROSE,BUTLER,MELO,TAJ,NOAH (sure dynasty)…….NO TO MELO TO CHICAGO……..STAY WITH THE KNICKS…..melo priority is bulls and rockets…knicks are third and heat are 4th

    • Paul Roach

      Taj would be gone, Boozer is amnestied and bench players plus picks would have to be moved to trade for Melo, leaving holes all over the bulls squad, and that is hoping that D Rose finally gets healthy. Bulls still cant win a championship by adding Melo with all they would have to lose in order to afford his contract, even if Melo takes less money. No way the Bulls can make this happen and be a successful team on the floor. Houston is the best and most likely logical destination for Melo. Championships on the way for the ROCKETS. GO H-TOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.google.com krossoverking

    Tom Brady and Belichick has been a pretty nice combination for years.

  • VillainKing

    I’ll rather sign Luol Deng and Lance Stephenson over Carmelo Anthony in the Lakers!!

    • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

      i agree with you… We can go with Lance-Kobe-Deng-Hill-Gortat/Monroe… with Nahs, Bazemore-Henry-Kelly-Sacre on the bench.

      That is still a tough tough lineup defensive and offensively…

      • http://rantsofascorpio.wordpress.com/ Evan

        Stephenson at the point? Can he even run the point effectively? Also, what about our draft pick? Why not:
        PG: Nash, Smart, Marshall
        SG: Bryant, Bazemore
        SF: Deng, Young
        PF: Kelly, Hill
        C: Okfaor (1yr), Sacre and look into Bynum.

        Then next season we can pursue Kevin Love and Omer Asik in free agency.

        • VillainKing

          I like Smart, Bryant, Deng, Hill and Gortat as a Lakers starting 5 while Stephenson will coming from the bench..

        • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

          Lance has been playing the point in Indiana, if you were watching the playoffs… he and Kobe can ably run that position alternately…

          But I do agree with your lineup… we can’t go wrong with that.

      • VillainKing

        “Bro my line up is like this”
        Starting Five:
        PG: Marcus Smart
        SG: Kobe Bryant
        SF: Luol Deng
        PF: Jordan Hill
        C : Marcin Gortat

        Key bench player from the bench:
        Lance Stephenson
        Andrew Bynum

        This player also can be a versatile lineup can use in the middle or last minutes of the game:
        PG: Marcus Smart
        SG: Lance Stephenson
        SF: Kobe Bryant
        PF: Luol Deng
        C : Marcin Gortat

        • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

          Yeah, agree with you on the first lineup… but Lance Stephenson, cannot be a bench player, he is a legit starter, and Smart is still a rookie… he Smart should come off the bench at least his first year, taking the bulk of a 6th man minute… so our six players should be
          Lance-Kobe-Deng-Hill-Gortat-Smart… that should give ample time for Smart to develop his game and at the same time gain valuable experience for the following season.

          • VillainKing

            Agree of you too.. but I think Lance Stephenson can be a good 6th man for the Lakers like Manu Ginobili and Jamal Crawford does in their teams..

          • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

            I have no problem with that… but their is truth why we call freshmen as rookies… they have yet to learn and mature… there is so much nuisance to the game of basketball. It would benefit Smart to come off the bench, like what Kobe went through in his rookie season.

          • VillainKing

            Ok I understand you but we know that Smart is one of the most NBA ready prospect in the draft..so for me he will be alright in playing as a starter in the Lakers line-up..

          • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

            NCAA is only aroudn 30 games… NBA is 82 games… that’s a lot… however, if Smart indeed is ready… why not,
            Smart-Lance-Kobe-Deng-Gortat… I would take that anyday… given a couple of years to really get this team to jell, we might be seeing a trip to the finals in 2 years for LAKERS!

          • VillainKing

            Yeah, you are correct with that line-up Lakers might be seeing a trip to finals in 2 years or more..

        • Paul Roach

          Unfortunately, at least for you and other amazingly blind Laker fans, seeing as how Kobe in all is arrogance and declining talent saw fit to accept a contract that pays him roughly 40% of the Lakers’ available cap room for the next 2 years, the Lakers can only afford to sign 1 max player and other lower level contract(and lower quality players) to fill out their roster. NO max-level player will want to sign with the unraveling Lakers, mostly because Kobe cant accept reality and the fact that he can no longer lead a team. His talent and athleticism have begun a steep decline, and eating up 40% of your team’s payroll when you are not a Top 25 player anymore is just stupid, arrogant and reeks of an inability to accept your age and that you are no longer an MVP-caliber player who could guide a team to a title. Kobe should retire so the Lakers can start a full rebuild and have all their money available to try to lure people to LA. NO, I REPEAT, NO SUPERSTAR LEVEL PLAYERS WILL COME TO LA TO JOIN KOBE. THEY WILL ONLY COME TO THE LAKERS ONCE KOBE IS RETIRED AND OUT OF THE

            FUCK YOU WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING!!!

      where does kobe go in that line up tho?

      • VillainKing

        Kobe Bryant will be the starting SG and Lance Stephenson is there 6thman he is an offense and defense coming from the bench for the Lakers and they must get rid of Swaggy P..

    This is so typical of Melo. He’s just looking for some coat tails to a title. And if Houston can clear the cap space by suckering the Lakers into the Asik/ Lin Deal the tax savings alone on Melo’s salary makes the deal logical.

    lakers knicks trade

    lal: melo, chandler, stomdemire, 2015 draft pick
    nyk: #7 pick, gasol, nash

    • Paul Roach

      No way the Knicks go for that. Throw in 2 more #1 picks and $10 mil and maybe the Knicks consider this. Horrible trade proposal, so lopsided even the Lakers would admit how stupid your idea is. Like a video NBA LIVE trade when you turn the realism off. Give me Durant and Lebron for my 2nd rounder. Jackass….

  • SoulChorea

    The very idea of Melo joining the Heat gets me riled up about the nixed CP trade all over again!

    I don’t think I’ll ever get over that LOL

  • Super Girl

    Melo will be satisfied beingthe 3rd option on offense??? duh! does not make sense… this is another failure in Houston!!!

  • Corteck

    I think Carmelo would make a great fit for the Lakers

  • iEATcelticBabies

    Melo and Lebron would both look smashing in Laker Purp n Gold. !!! puff puff give !

    When albert einstein passed away, his brain matter was sold for untold millions throughout academia…. when kobe passes long time from now,slices of his testicles will be sold for untold billions…
