New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony has told supporters to not worry about his future, reports NBC Sports.
The 29-year-old small forward is yet to extend his alleged $21,490,00 per season contract beyond the off season, which has raised doubts over his long-term future at Madison Square Garden.
However Anthony has revealed he is concentrating on guiding the Knicks out of their recent poor form rather than worrying about signing a new contract.
Speaking to reporters, Anthony said on his future:
"Nobody should be worried about me. I’m going to be fine.
“I’m not even thinking about contracts or BS like that. I’ll think about that in the offseason.
"Right now, my duty is to lead this team to win some basketball games, hopefully to win a championship. That’s my duty. Nobody should be worried about Carmelo Anthony.”
Anthony has been in poor form this season - with the All-Star ace's shooting accuracy three per cent worse than his career average over the course of 2013.
The New York Knicks, who have lost their last three games, will be hoping to win their fourth NBA game of the season when Anthony's side take on the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center on Saturday night.
