But, on the day the Knick’s coach Mike D’Antoni abruptly resigned, the NBA star player told the press that the reports are simply not true.
He told the Associated Press that New York is the home for him.
“No, no, no, no. Let’s nip this in the bud right now. No,” Anthony said after the Knicks’ Wednesday morning shoot-around.
“I don’t know where that came from. I’m tired of hearing it. It came out this morning from I guess an anonymous source. I’m tired of anonymous sources. I don’t want to be traded. I don’t know where that foolishness came from, so let’s put a cap on that and make this the last time I hear about that.”
Other rumors have begun to float around, accusing Anthony and coach Mike D’Antoni have beef.
The trade deadline is today, Thursday, so really there is not telling about whom is going where. Everything is heresy until the day actually comes.
But in the meantime, Melo says he’s happy where he’s at and wants to be in New York where he feels most comfortable.
