Carmelo Anthony will opt out of his contract with the Knicks later this month, but he could still re-up with the team afterwards. He met with Phil Jackson, Steve Mills and Derek Fisher last week to discuss his options, and left with a positive attitude. From ESPN.com:
“It was great meeting with Phil, it went well,” Anthony told two reporters at an event on Wednesday in Manhattan to promote his partnership with 50 Cent and SMS Audio headphones.
On Fisher’s hiring, Anthony added: “I like what Phil is doing.”
Anthony met with Jackson, Fisher and Mills in Los Angeles last Friday to discuss his pending free agency. Anthony has said throughout the season that he plans to opt out of the final year of his contract and test free agency this summer.
