The Knicks appear to be putting on a full-court press to get Carmelo Anthony out of town. Yesterday, a report surfaced that New York made a call to the Cavs to see if there was any interest in swapping Melo for Kevin Love, a trade proposal that Cleveland shot down.
Today, The Vertical is reporting that along with Cleveland, the Knicks also reached out to the Clippers and Celtics to “probe their interest in a trade.”
