New York Knicks owner James Dolan believes Phil Jackson will tempt Carmelo Anthony into committing his future to the Eastern Conference franchise.

Anthony has been linked with a move away from Madison Square Garden during the last couple of months as the 29-year-old can opt out of his current deal at the end of the season.

The New York Knicks superstar is reportedly attracting interest from the Los Angeles Lakers and the Chicago Bulls, however Dolan believes Anthony will shun any offers from the duo to stay at Madison Square Garden.

Speaking to the New York Post: "Carmelo wants to be on a winning team. I think Carmelo and the rest of team felt they were going into the season with an excellent chance of going deep into the playoffs.

"Everybody was taken by surprise. I know Carmelo wants to be on a winner and it was getting hard here to see how this team was going to do that. I think bringing Phil on will clear a lot of that up.”

Anthony has become slightly disillusioned with life at the Garden as the small forward has aspirations to win the NBA championship.

The New York Knicks are currently one spot off of the Eastern Conference playoff places.

Dolan will be hoping the New York Knicks can get off to the best possible start under Jackson's watch then his side take on the Indiana Pacers later tonight.
