Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is leaning towards opting out and signing with another team as a free agent according to Adrian Wojnarnowski of Yahoo! Sports.
“His heart is in New York,” one source familiar with Anthony’s thinking told Yahoo Sports, “but he wants a chance to win now.”
The two teams being favorites to land Anthony are the Bulls and the Rockets. The Rockets can offer Anthony a near max deal while the Bulls would have to amnesty Carlos Boozer and find a taker for Taj Gibson and another player to fit under the cap.
