Carmelo Confirms Expected Plan To Opt Out
 
Quote:

In a weeks old interview, Carmelo Anthony told the New York Observer that he plans on becoming a free agent on July 1.

I want to be a free agent, Anthony said. I think everybody in the NBA dreams to be a free agent at least one time in their career. Its like you have an evaluation period, you know. Its like if Im in the gym and I have all the coaches, all the owners, all the GMs come into the gym and just evaluate everything I do. So yes, I want that experience.

Anthony would earn $33 million more by re-signing with the New York Knicks.

Ahahhahah, NY is destined to be screwed for life...just another epic fail that had them give up a shit load of assets for a guy who is just a volume shooter that cant even come close to winning an NBA championship. :mu:

He'll re-sign there. That or he'll be a Laker

I dont know why everyone is making such a huge deal out of this. According to reports, this was already pre determined due to the new CBA since he can get more money either with the Knicks or another team if he opts out. Why handcuff yourself if you're Carmelo and take less money when you can opt out and get more with the same team?

I dont think theres a chance he's leaving NY. He would get obliterated in the media and his image would suffer big time.

New York will suck and we will get their pick, perfect! :mu:

No way, unless Brooklyn did a S&T. Can you imagine if he ditched NY for Brooklyn. That would be delicious!!

Well to get him the raps would need the necessary capspace and/or attractiveness. Meh, it doesn't matter, give that money to RG :mattyd:

I agree with everything you say! Melo wanted to be there since he was drafted, Period.

He'll follow the money. He won't care about his image. Gonna guess he'll be a Laker.

If this was the knicks forum everyone would be screaming we should trade Melo now and trade the whole team and rip it all apart and tank because the knicks can't win without him.

We'd be saying the same if we had that team and he said this.

TORaptor4Ever 10-18-2013 01:19 PM

Lin & Parsons to NYK for Melo!

Let Lin-sanity reign again! :jack:

well lets say he leaves how does it relate to the draft picks we hold? are they protected etc, or are they from another team

rapsmannn 10-18-2013 07:21 PM

just looked on hoopsworld its in 2016 unprotected, so who wants to see melo join the lakers, chandler demanding trade out and isiah taking over

that would be me hoping the raptors host a allstar game and take knicks 1st overall pick in 2016, shaping up to be a great year for raptors

by the way everyone is over looking the bulls clearing space to sign melo, with all their trade pieces they could be looking to deal this year for expirings
