Jackson met with Anthony [on Tuesday] to discuss those comments and his feelings about remaining with the organization for the final two years on his contract. One source described the meeting as far more contentious than previous sit-downs between Jackson and Anthony.

No specific trades were discussed, sources said, as both sides left the meeting to take time to process the situation and wait on Anthony’s answer as to whether he wants to remain with the Knicks or accept a trade elsewhere.

UPDATE: 3:55pm ET

According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, in their meeting, Anthony reaffirmed his desire to remain with the Knicks.

Isola’s account was later confirmed by Adrian Wojnarowski, who points out that Anthony’s no-trade clause makes it improbable that the star is headed elsewhere anytime soon. According to Wojnarowski, the meeting was more “businesslike” than “contentious,” for what it’s worth.
