Derek Fisher: Carmelo Would Thrive In The Triangle Offense

Carmelo Anthony can't afford another losing season

During a radio interview on “The Michael Kay Show,” new Knicks head coach Derek Fisher emphasized his desire to have Anthony re-sign.

His pitch to Carmelo is simple, Fisher believes Anthony would thrive in the triangle offense. 

“Yes, in my opinion Carmelo will thrive in a triangle system,’’ Fisher said. “He is actually the prototypical triangle player because of his versatility. We could use him at all five positions on the floor. That’s the beauty of the system, being able to move players around on different spots on the floor. I believe we can be great right away because we have that guy we can anchor that system around.”

Fisher took it a step further than in his press conference, saying Anthony can be “a leader on a championship team.’’

Anthony has until June 23 to notify the Knicks whether he is opting out.
