Last week we reported that a source close to Carmelo Anthony had informed me that Melo would be opting out of his deal with the New York Knicks. Yesterday Melo made that rumor a reality.
Despite Phil Jackson’s plea to keep Carmelo in a Knicks uniform, Melo has opted out of his deal and he will test Free Agency. With Melo’s talents set to hit the market, the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets,Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat are along the frontrunners to make a bid for Carmelo. Melo hasn’t mentioned who or what his dream team looks like but he has been extremely vocal about wanting to experience free agency.
Knicks fans shouldn’t burn or bury their Melo jersey just yet however because there is still a small chance that Carmelo returns to Madison Square Garden.
Details are still forming so stay tuned to HHS1987 for all your NBA news.
