Carmelo Anthony isn't saying he will be traded, but he isn't saying he won't be, either.
The New York Knicks star said he has heard about all the trade rumors surrounding him, but indicated he will let the public know if something does happen.
“I hear the new report every day,” Anthony said, via USA Today. “Every day is a new team. ‘Melo said this, Melo said that.’ Melo hasn’t said anything yet. That’s what I will say. Melo hasn’t said anything yet.”
Essentially, Anthony indicated he is open to any option, whether it means he stays in New York or moves on to another team.
However, he said he has stayed quiet on whether he has given the Knicks a list of teams to which he'd be willing to be traded.
“I haven’t told anybody anything. I haven’t had that conversation with anybody,” Anthony said.
Since Anthony has spent the better part of six years in New York, he said he would have to make sure a move was in the best interest of his family.
“That’s more about what I care about — my family, my son being comfortable in New York and at an age now where he really gets an opportunity to understand being in New York and having a home there and having friends there and my wife working there and having her opportunities there,” Anthony said.
“I think about that more so of my decision for my career. At the end of the day, it will come down to my decision, but I think about what my family is thinking and what they’ll have to go through if anything.”
