Former New York Knicks star Metta World Peace believes Carmelo Anthony will sign a new deal to stay at Madison Square Garden.

Anthony has been linked with a move away from the Eastern Conference franchise for some time now, as the New York Knicks have struggled for form this season.

The New York Knicks are currently languishing outside the playoff places, which will not please a player of Anthony's calibre.

NBA duo Los Angeles Lakers and the Chicago Bulls are said to be interested in signing Anthony - but the 29-year-old has stated on many occasions that he would like to stay at the New York Knicks.

And World Peace, who was released from the New York Knicks on Tuesday, has stated he thinks Anthony will commit his long-term future to the Eastern Conference franchise.

Speaking ESPN, World Peace said on the possibility of Anthony staying at the Garden.

"It's a no-brainer. Melo's not afraid of the media. Some people are afraid of that challenge, the N.Y. media. Melo's one of those guys who's not afraid."

World Peace went onto say that he thought Anthony had all the right attributes to become a champion.
