Knicks president Phil Jackson believes the addition of Derrick Rose will be “reinvigorating” for Carmelo Anthony.
Anthony expressed concern over the direction of the franchise after the season, wondering whether the Knicks planned to compete in the near future or undergo a long-term rebuild.
Jackson intimated Thursday that the Rose trade gives Anthony confidence about the club’s future.
