Carmelo Not Seeking Trade; Believes in Phil


Carmelo Anthony says he has no plans to seek a trade and remains committed to Knicks president Phil Jackson in the wake of Derek Fisher’s dismissal as head coach.

“This is something I didn’t see coming, [that] nobody saw coming,” Anthony said. “So you have to continue to put your trust into Phil. At this point, what could you do? Can’t shy away from that. Can’t go against it. So for me, it’s continue. I have to trust in it. I decided to stay here. I decided to make that decision to trust in the Knicks and trust in Phil. I have to continue doing that.”
