Carmelo Anthony is leaning towards opting out and signing with a contender (Wojarnowski, June 14) , but that doesn’t scare the Knicks.
Despite all the talk of Anthony leaving New York and teaming up with LeBron James, Dwight Howard or Joakim Noah, the Knicks like their chances of keeping the All-Star forward according to Marc Berman of the New York Post. (Berman, June 14).
Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher met with Anthony on Friday.
“The meeting went well — [Anthony] will still most likely opt out — but all in all, a good meeting,’’ a source told the Post.
