New York Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony has warned the American media that he will not be discussing a move away from Madison Square Garden during All-Star weekend.

Anthony will play for the Eastern Conference franchise tonight before making his way to New Orleans to compete in the prestigious event.

However Anthony, who will be playing with and against the best players in the NBA in Sunday's All-Star match, has stated he will not be discussing the possibility of moving away from the Knicks with the media.

Anthony, speaking after the Knicks' pre-match practice session, told the New York Post: “We don’t have time to talk like that.

“You guys [media] are going to be there. We don’t have time to just sit down and relax.”

The New York Knicks star has been linked with a move away from his current side for some time now as he is able to opt out of the final year of his contract.

Anthony has been disappointed with his side's form this season and is desperate to win the NBA championship.

The 29-year-old's wife - LaLa - hinted that her husband wanted to stay at the Knicks rather than leave for potential suitors such as the Los Angeles Lakers and the Chicago Bulls.

New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson is also confident of keeping Anthony at the franchise.

The Knicks go into tonight's game against the Sacramento Kings on the back of a defeat against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
