Carmelo Anthony hints at Knicks free agency exit

Published Add your comment

New York Knicks could be about to lose their star small forward Carmelo Anthony after he hinted at an exit during NBA free agency this summer. 

Melo is one of the most coveted players in the league right now with rumors of his departure coming left, right and center. 

However, this time the speculation has come from the man himself after he admitting that the Knicks problems will definitely play a part in his decision to stay or leave. 

“A lot of things (are) going to be thought about when that time comes,” Anthony said on Thursday. “Off the court, on the court, just a lot of things (are) going to have to be put all on the table.”

Even though the talented 29-year-old is contracted beyond the summer it's believed he will exercise an early out-clause in his contract to become a free-agent. 

Wherever he decides go, it's a guarantee that Anthony would have to take a pay cut at a team other than the Knicks. 

Such a move would not be unprecedented after Dwight Howard reneged on a bumper salary with the Lakers to move to Houston for this season.
