Carmelo Anthony has Cavaliers, Thunder on expanded wish list to Knicks — Sources


But a deal was difficult because the 33-year-old forward has two years and about $54 million left on his contract, along with the ability to decline any trade.

It's unclear if Trump's tweet referred to just Curry not being invited or if the President meant the entire Warriors team was not welcome.

Kanter can score and rebound but is an atrocious defender.

Comparing West with Collins on its face is a bit unfair, considering West's experience as an executive and championship pedigree dating back to his days with the Lakers.

Carmelo Anthony still want to play for the Houston Rockets, but now he's willing to play for a few other teams too. Carmelo Anthony will play alongside some of NBA's top stars in Russell Westbrook, and Paul George.

For example, OKC was scouting Anthony as far back as January. Mentally, Carmelo and his family have moved on to Houston. Presti thought that relationship could help.
