Report: Melo to Make His Decision 2nd Week of July
In the end, I think he ends up in Chicago, but your guess is as good as mine. According to this report by Yahoo Sports, he won’t take too long to make up his mind.
New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony hopes to make a decision on where he will play next season in the second week of July after taking several free-agent visits, a source told Yahoo Sports.
Anthony opted out of his contract with the Knicks recently to become an unrestricted free agent and can begin talking to teams July 1. A source said there is currently no frontrunner for Anthony’s services, and he is expected to meet with the Knicks, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks. There was no mention of the Miami Heat. Anthony hopes to visit the aforementioned teams in their respective cities during the opening days of free agency. At the moment, no other teams are expected to get a meeting.
A sign and trade is possible, but I do believe Phil Jackson is subtly pushing him out of the door.
