Knicks brass will be traveling to Los Angeles this weekend to meet with Carmelo Anthony in an effort to convince him to remain with the club (Wojnarowski, June 13).
Among those expected to make the trip are team president Phil Jackson, owner James Dolan, and new head coach Derek Fisher.
During the trip, Jackson is expected to sell Anthony on the long-term future of the franchise.
According to Wojnarowski, this weekend’s reported meeting will be the first time Anthony and Fisher will speak in person since Fisher was installed as the team’s head coach.
Anthony, who has been working out this month in Los Angeles, is expected to opt out of his contract on July 1 and become an unrestricted free agent.
The Heat are said to have interest in landing Anthony in order to form a “Big Four” in Miami.
