by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Despite taking several meetings with other teams this offseason, Carmelo Anthony is expected to announce that he'll return to the Knicks. The New York Daily News reported Wednesday that Anthony told a close friend he "believes in Phil" and plans to announce his intent Thursday.

Anthony was said to be deciding between the Lakers and Knicks over the past few days, but it ultimately appears he'll opt to make more money by staying put while seeing what the new regime under Phil Jackson can do for him in the coming years. 


Lakers move into three-team race for Carmelo Anthony


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Lakers forward Carmelo Anthony came away from his meeting with the Lakers very impressed and is now seriously considering them as a free-agency destination, according to reports Saturday.

Report: Carmelo Anthony expected back with Knicks


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Free agent forward Carmelo Anthony is taking the weekend to mull over his options, but the New York Daily News reports Saturday he is expected to re-sign with the Knicks.

Anthony has been offered a five-year, $129 million contract from the Knicks, more than any competing team can match. Anthony has also received offers from the Mavericks, Rockets, Lakers and Bulls, but those teams can only offer four year deals. According to a New York Post report, Anthony is also considering taking less than the max from the Knicks.

Anthony spent the previous three and a half seasons with the Knicks, but put together arguably his best last year. He averaged 27.4 points, 8.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists while appearing in 77 games, his highest total since 2010-11. 


Chandler Parsons hits restricted free agency


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2014) The Rockets have declined their team option for Chandler Parsons, officially making him an unrestricted free agent once negotiations begin Tuesday, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Houston has expressed interest in re-signing Parsons, but that decision will likely boil down to whether or not Carmelo Anthony or another big-fish free agent finds his way to the Rockets. Meanwhile, the Celtics and Timberwolves are rumored to be interested in signing Parsons should Houston invest elsewhere.


Carmelo Anthony sets timeframe for free agency decision


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) By the end of the second week in July, Carmelo Anthony will have decided his fate -- at least that's what Yahoo Sports reported Friday afternoon.

Anthony will meet with the Bulls, Knicks, Lakers, Rockets and Mavericks once free agency begins. He has maintained that he would like to remain in New York, but obviously if other, more talented teams pitch him a better scenario for winning, he could be packing his bags by the end of next month.

A career-year high 38.7 minutes per game might also contribute to Anthony's departure. That's a lot of minutes to give to a 30-year-old superstar tasked with carrying a team's offense. 


Carmelo Anthony to decline player option, hit open market


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) The Knicks won't have Carmelo Anthony under contract heading into free agency, as the All-Star forward chose to terminate his current contract and become an unrestricted free agent, according to multiple reports

Anthony has forgone the $23.3 million he was owed for the coming season to test the open market this offseason. The Knicks tried their best to persuade him into staying by hiring Phil Jackson as their president of operations, but it wasn't enough to convince Anthony to opt in. The Bulls are thought to be the frontrunner to acquire his services, but other free agent dominos will likely fall before any final decisions are made. 


Report: Carmelo Anthony leaning toward leaving Knicks


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) The New York Daily News reported earlier in the week that Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is expected to opt out of his current contract and test the market. Now, Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports Saturday that Anthony is leaning toward leaving New York.

The Bulls and Rockets have emerged as the clear frontrunners to acquire Anthony, according to Wojnarowski's report. Chicago would need amnesty Carlos Boozer's contract and trade Taj Gibson, along with another piece. Houston would need to create some cap space as well in order to acquire Anthony.

"His heart is in New York, but he wants a chance to win now," a source told Wojnarowski.

Earlier this week, a report from ESPN surfaced that Miami "already started to explore their options" to target Anthony. Heat forward Chris Bosh told ESPN that adding Anthony would be "very, very, unlikely."

The Knicks are expected to meet with Anthony this weekend to discuss his future plans, Yahoo! Sports reports.

by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) Looks like yet another guard will trade in the game jersey for the tailored suit, as Yahoo Sports reported Monday that the Knicks and Derek Fisher were finalizing a five-year contract

Fisher played for 17 seasons in the NBA, becoming the league's leader in all-time playoff wins.
