New York Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony has dropped the biggest hint yet that he could commit his long-term future to the Madison Square Garden franchise.

Anthony's wife said during an interview to promote her new book that she thought her 29-year-old husband would sign a new deal at the New York Knicks.

The NBA superstar has the option to opt out of the last year of his current contract at the Eastern Conference franchise.

However Anthony's wife - LaLa Anthony - believes her husband will reject interest from the likes of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Chicago Bulls to stay at the New York-based side.

Speaking at her book launch, she said on her husband's future: “I definitely think he will stay [in New York].

“I know that he wants to stay and I support him wherever he wants to go.

“Listen, I used to live in Denver with him. If I can live in Denver, I can live anywhere. I just want him to be happy.”

And Anthony has backed his wife for speaking out on his future, which has been the subject of much discussion over the past couple of months.

“That’s my wife. I support her. I support what she said. I don’t think she said anything wrong. It’s a good thing for her to say that. Go get the book.”

Anthony is expected to feature in the New York Knicks' game against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Madison Square Garden on Thursday.
