Knicks reportedly ask Carmelo Anthony to expand his wish list

Knicks reportedly ask Carmelo Anthony to expand his wish list

The New York Knicks and Houston Rockets have resumed trade discussions that would send 10-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony to the Rockets, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

While the Knicks are open to starting training camp with Anthony still on the roster, moving the 33-year-old forward would help NY accelerate its rebuilding process around younger talent such as Kristaps Porzingis.

Juenemann has never attempted a kick for the Golden Gophers, but could be a big part of the team's plans this fall. Juenemann hasn't seen any game action in his four years with the program.

While the two teams had advanced progress under president Phil Jackson, that progress has taken a back seat after Steve Mills took over the presidency, being far more particular about the pieces involved.

The Pels have attempted to get involved in trade talks for Melo, but he reportedly told the Knicks that he won't waive his no-trade clause to go to the Big Easy. The New York Post reported Thursday that the Knicks floated the idea of a trade to the Pelicans, but that Anthony told the team "he would not agree to waive his no-trade clause for New Orleans". Anthony had reportedly indicated that he would be open to a trade to Cleveland, where he has another superstar pal in LeBron James, but he changed his mind amid a summer of turmoil for the Cavs. So, while trading for Anthony would make the Rockets really exciting to watch and the second-best team in the Wester Conference (at least on paper), doing so probably would decimate their depth to the point where winning a championship isn't a realistic goal. Houston is ready is wait until the regular season for the Knicks to drop their asking price.
