Carmelo Got Mixed Signals From Knicks?

Basketball Insiders

According to a person familiar with the situation, Anthony felt as if he got mixed signals from the New York Knicks during his meeting with the team on Thursday. While Anthony and his camp were told that he could have a maximum contract if he wanted it, a source said, team president Phil Jackson continued to preach the virtues of taking less than the maximum—a message that left Anthony questioning whether the max offer was sincere.

If Anthony felt slighted, it might explain the Lakers’ emergence as a possible destination. They are the only other suitor armed with enough cap space to be able to make Anthony a maximum contract offer. (The Lakers can offer four years and $96 million, while the Knicks, due to CBA rules, can give Anthony five years and $129 million.) Chicago, Houston and Dallas all have less cap space.
