It's not clear where the trade talks will go next, though it does seem clear that Carmelo Anthony won't be wearing a New York Knicks uniform this year. However, developments to the NBA landscape could theoretically change his forecast. "Everybody from the Caribbean, we all have that rhythm born in us". A team in need of a reset has opted instead for more of the same. Some even said that if the Warriors win a ring, it won't be as special because of Durant's "cowardly" move. It's easy to look at Carmelo in a negative light currently with the stench of the New York Knicks consuming him, but there's a real chance on a team with superstars he can step in and make a huge impact immediately.
This isn't about a lack of qualifications for Perry, a longtime NBA executive who comes with a well-respected track record and who, in just a few months in Sacramento, helped usher in what has widely been hailed as the best offseason the team has had in years.
"I let the front office deal with that".
After enduring yet another tumultuous season and with a a now former team President in Phil Jackson who openly stated he wanted him off the team - The New York Knicks have seemingly reversed course on trading Carmelo Anthony in hopes of keeping him with the team. That led to Griffin pulling out of consideration for the job.
In the interview with TMZ, Thompson still admits that the Warriors are a team to beat and brings up what a great thing that they have going currently for them in the bay area. He can block a trade, maybe even demand one (and take the subsequent fine).
That should help the Knicks remain competitive in the race to the bottom of the Eastern Conference - something Dolan referenced by citing Mills' "ambitious plan that centers on building a young team focused on player development, communication and teamwork". "It's good to have fun like that".
So, in a way, perhaps this is the beginning of a new era for the Knicks, no matter how much Dolan and the rest of Madison Square Garden aren't interested in changing anything else. Portland's mention of involvement on July 6 set rumors in motion.
