New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson believes NBA star Carmelo Anthony will end his career at Madison Square Garden.
The 29-year-old New York Knicks small forward has two years left on his contract but can choose to waive the final year of his deal in order to become a free agent.
Anthony has been linked with moves to the Los Angeles Lakers and the Chicago Bulls over the last few months, however Woodson is confident his star player will commit his long-term future to the Eastern Conference franchise.
Woodson, speaking to ESPN, said on rumours linking Anthony with a move away from Madison Square Garden:
"In my heart, I don't think [Anthony will sign with another team].
"I think Melo will retire a New York Knick. That's just my personal belief."
Anthony cannot better his current salary at the Knicks if he was to leave the Atlantic Division side due to the amount of years he has been at Woodson's side.
The USA international has hinted he may be willing to make himself a free agent, however it is thought that Anthony is yet to make a decision over where his long-term future lies.
