Anthony to forfeit trade kicker if dealt to Rockets

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony wants a trade, with Houston said to be his preferred destination. However, Melo has a no-trade clause, which means he has the final authority on any potential deal. Weaver, Syracuse's assistant coach at the time, was the one who urged head coach Jim Boeheim to scout Anthony in high school and is widely credited as the guy who delivered Anthony to the Orange.

"Have a scoop - OKC and Carmelo are officially circling each other".

Weaver was an assistant at Syracuse from 2000-2004. But the Knicks have made it clear that they aren't going to accept a deal in which they simply give Anthony away.

The franchise recently added All Star forward Paul George via trade as they continue their post-Kevin Durant rebuild, while also looking to convince league MVP Russell Westbrook into staying with the team once his contract expires at the conclusion of the 2017/18 season.

But if Affleck's comments at SDCC is any indication, it looks like Batfleck will continue to fight crime on the big screen. It's f-king awesome and I still can't believe it after two films...

The New York Knicks would need to get creative in a trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder, but another option may have presented itself for Carmelo Anthony.

In the wake of acquiring superstar Paul George from the Indiana Pacers, the Thunder are already viewed as a legitimate threat to challenge the Houston Rocket and/or San Antonio Spurs for the second and third seeds in the taxing Western Conference. Now that things have changed with National Basketball Association free agency, trade rumors [VIDEO] are swirling around Anthony as the #Oklahoma City Thunder are reported to acquire him.

Adams averaged 11.3 points and 7.7 rebounds per game last season for the Thunder, up from 8.0 points and 6.7 rebounds the year before.

But don't look for the Thunder to sacrifice Adams for what would be a major gamble in Anthony.
