Knicks Reached Out To Celtics, Clippers About Carmelo Trade

Carmelo Anthony has $54 million remaining over the next two years of his contract

Trade rumors involving Carmelo Anthony continue to swirl with the deadline less than a month away, but ultimately the New York Knicks star can control his own fate.

The Knicks really want to move on from Carmelo Anthony.

Anthony's no-trade clause might not even be the biggest obstacle.

Anthony's deal also contains a "trade kicker" in the event that he is indeed traded, which increases the cost for any team trying to acquire him.

Let's not forget that Anthony has a no trade clause in his contract and recently stated that he would consider waiving it for the right opportunity.

The 32-year-old superstar is averaging 22.7 points per game this season, but that hasn't exactly made him a sought-after commodity on the trade market. He is also on almost as lucrative a contract (Love makes about $2 million less per year) that extends a year longer than Anthony's.

Anthony has already said that he is willing to move out if the Knicks do not want him anymore.

But it could be tricky to reach the point they approach Anthony. He isn't a team player, but that's OK. Nobody called me. Nobody got in contact with any of my representation or anything like that, so it's something that I don't worry about. They have young players and could put together a package of players and draft picks that could be appealing to the Knicks.

According to a report from The Vertical, the Knicks have reached out to the Cleveland Cavaliers (which was reported earlier this week), the Boston Celtics and LA Clippers to gauge interest. But to make the deal work it would mean sending Blake Griffin back, something that the Clippers have never seemed interested in.

Anthony and Jackson met in January, and he informed management he did not plan to waive his no-trade clause, according the Daily News. He holds a no-trade clause and the ballclub would have discussed the matter with him had the Cavs been amenable to the swap. "We got who we got, and we got to go out and play".

After a promising 14-10 start, the Knicks have gone just 4-14 since Christmas, falling to 20-27 on the season.

Though now's as good a time as any for Anthony to abandon ship, he's remained constant with his desire to play and win in NY.

The Cavaliers are reportedly among his preferred landing spots along with the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers.
