New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game Five

Brian Windhorst and Marc Stein are reporting that the Miami Heat have had internal discussions about adding Carmelo Anthony to the big-3.

Sources told ESPN.com that Heat officials and the team’s leading players have already started to explore their options for creating sufficient financial flexibility to make an ambitious run at adding New York Knicks scoring machine Carmelo Anthony this summer in free agency.

The mere concept would require the star trio of LeBron JamesDwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to all opt out of their current contracts by the end of the month and likely take further salary reductions in new deals that start next season to give Miami the ability to offer Anthony a representative first-year salary. The Heat also are prevented from making any formal contact with Anthony until July 1 and can do so then only if he opts out of the final year of his current contract. Anthony has until June 23 to notify the Knicks of his intentions, according to sources.

According to the report, these discussions concerning Carmelo have been ongoing for sometime and all three players believe they can recoup lost income through endorsments.
