Knicks expect Carmelo Anthony at training camp next week

This has the potential to create for an uncomfortable season with the distraction of the 33-year-old's future in NY drawing much of the attention. So we're going to continue to do that on a daily basis, whether it's entertaining calls or obviously internal development is going to be important for us.

According to the National Basketball Association insider, Melo's camp will make one last attempt to convince the Knicks into trading him to the Houston Rockets by Monday.

Carmelo Anthony has been the subject of lingering trade rumors throughout the National Basketball Association offseason, but he's probably not going anywhere.

"The Knicks under new team president Steve Mills and new general manager Scott Perry are well within their right to wait for the best deal possible before finally sending Carmelo on his way", he added. "If he's back here with the New York Knicks, we expect him to be the professional he's always exemplified throughout his career and move forward with him". And the Knicks don't want him, either.

Anthony's no-trade clause remains the No.1 impediment to making a trade happen. However, due to the fact that the Rockets essentially emptied their cupboard of assets when they traded for Chris Paul over the summer, striking a deal for Anthony is almost impossible without getting a third team involved.

He led them last season with 22.4 points per game even while dealing with the constant distraction of trade talks. Additionally, head coach Jeff Hornacek said that Anthony will start and that his role will not change so long as he is on the roster. Hornacek has denied reports of friction between the two. Portland can basically throw in a package of young players with draft picks as trade sweetener.

Porzingis respects Anthony, and part of his disenchantment with the franchise was likely because of Anthony's treatment.

Perry did not follow that up by mentioning the veteran leadership (many would say bad example) Anthony could provide.
