Marc Stein of ESPN reported that Carmelo Anthony has pushed for the Knicks to begin buyout discussions.
It would appear as if Carmelo is finally ready to leave the Knicks. The Knicks have stayed firm in that they would prefer to trade their All Star; his value has cratered after Phil Jackson made his desire to move him very public. At the moment it is a stalemate as Carmelo has to approve any trade decision and the Knicks don’t appear to be willing to pay him to go away.
