Phil Jackson: Carmelo Should Accept Trade to Contender

on

New York Knicks team president Phil Jackson reiterated his belief that Carmelo Anthony should waive his no-trade clause and accept a deal to a team in position to contend for an NBA title.

“We’d like him to have success,”Jackson said during a break in the action at the NBA draft combine. “The opportunity is narrowing. We’d just like him to have success somewhere. We’re not going to be there. Hopefully, we’ll be maybe a playoff team next year. It would be tough to consider us a possible champion.”
