According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, the Clippers are "still kicking the tires on everything" including their pursuit of Carmelo Anthony.
Melo has reiterated his desire to remain in New York time and time again, and Phil Jackson's tactics to drive him out of the city has only hardened his resolve to stay put. Anthony still holds all the power with his no-trade clause, so the chances of him agreeing to a deal appear to be very slim. The Clippers won't give up any of their core four guys in Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and J.J. Redick, so Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford would likely be the guys to go if this "pipedream" becomes a reality for LAC. Feb 20 - 10:27 PM

Carmelo Anthony is still expected to remain with the Knicks past the deadline according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

The Knicks haven't brought him a potential deal in recent days, suggesting that the talks with the Clippers, Cavaliers and Celtics have cooled. Melo still holds all the power with his no-trade clause, and Phil Jackson's tactics to drive him out of New York have backfired. Barring a surprise, expect Melo to finish out the season in New York.
Feb 19 - 9:50 AM

Carmelo Anthony, who was named an All-Star replacement on Wednesday, finished a road loss in OKC with 30 points on 11-of-20 shooting, six 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 39 minutes.

Melo has now made eight straight All-Star teams, although it took an injury to Kevin Love for him to make the cut this season. As for all the trade talk engulfing the Knicks, Melo continues to downplay the rumors. "I never thought I would be anywhere [other than New York]," he said. "Nothing came to my table for me to look at. Until that time comes, then they don't need for me to even talk about the [no-trade] clause." If he were to be dealt, he'd be hard-pressed to duplicate his current 29.6 percent usage.
Feb 16 - 12:38 AM

Carmelo Anthony said he's given no indication to Knicks management that he has any intention of waiving his no-trade clause.

This has been a constant theme, and while it hasn't stopped the trade rumors from swirling around Melo, it seems extremely unlikely that he'll be moved at the deadline. The Knicks are currently just three games out of the playoff hunt, and as long as they're relevant, Anthony won't be in any danger of a potential shutdown.
Feb 15 - 1:28 PM

Carmelo Anthony made 9-of-21 shots with three 3-pointers to finish Sunday's surprise win vs. the Spurs with 25 points, seven rebounds and two assists in 40 minutes.

Melo scored 15 points in the third quarter, propelling the Knicks to a 69-68 lead before the final quarter, and they used some unusually pesky defense to seal the victory. Knee and shoulder injuries haven't been a big issue, as Melo has missed one game all season, and he continues to play well despite the whirlwind of off-court distractions that surround him in New York. So far, so good for his fantasy owners.
Feb 12 - 7:01 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored 33 points with six rebounds, four assists, two steals and six turnovers during a 131-123 loss to the Nuggets on Friday.

While Melo was red hot late with 19 points in the fourth quarter, the Knicks were just a no show on the other end. Coach Jeff Hornacek said his team should be embarrassed and that his starting lineup is terrible at defense. In other words, don't expect to see Anthony start at power forward again on Sunday. He's still playing well and the trade rumors won't be going away.
Feb 10 - 10:01 PM

Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 28 points on Wednesday, making 10-of-20 FGs with three 3-pointers, nine rebounds, two blocks and one steal in a tough loss to the Clippers.

The Clippers' visit to MSG brought the usual deluge of trade-based questions, but Doc Rivers said there's "nothing going on" in terms of a Melo deal. "We don’t have Carmelo. I swear to God we don’t. He plays for the Knicks. So that’s your story, and that’s the way we leave it." Melo is used to off-court drama and it's not affecting his play, so owners should just be happy that he's staying healthy.
Feb 9 - 1:50 AM

Knicks president Phil Jackson’s campaign to pressure Carmelo Anthony into waiving his no-trade clause is "working to harden Anthony’s resolve to remain with the franchise," according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

"[Jackson’s] underestimating ‘Melo’s willingness to stay," the source told Woj. This story just won't go away and that's probably what Phil wants. Jackson took a public shot at Anthony, saying "you don't change the spots on a leopard." All these rumors get a lot of attention, but they all could be moot if Melo doesn't waive his no-trade clause.
Feb 8 - 4:03 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored 26 points in Monday's loss to the Lakers, shooting 10-of-17 from the field.

He added five assists, three rebounds and one steal in 37 minutes. A report by the New York Daily News on Monday suggested that LeBron James is pushing his front office to trade for Melo even if Kevin Love is involved in the deal, but ESPN's Dave McMenamin said that "there is no substance to any of that" and LeBron himself called that latest rumor "trash." The Knicks will continue shopping Melo, but a move to Cleveland seems highly unlikely.

Feb 6 - 10:55 PM

Carmelo Anthony's shot was off vs. the Nets, as he made just 6-of-22 field goals to finish with 15 points, three rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes.

The Knicks' bench was their saving grace tonight, and coach Jeff Hornacek ran with the second unit, going so far as to bench Melo for the entire fourth quarter. New York shot an abysmal 35.4 percent from the field and 6-of-27 beyond the arc tonight, resulting in a near-loss to the lowly Nets. Lucky for them, Brooklyn's offense proved to be even more inept down the stretch.
Feb 1 - 11:33 PM

The Knicks "continue to pursue" a trade involving Kevin Love and Carmelo Anthony, but the Cavs are not interested in trading away Love in a deal, according to ESPN's Marc Stein and Ramona Shelburne.

This is basically the same story from last week, but the Knicks are not giving up here. This reports adds the Cavs are interested in Melo, but only if a deal can be struck without including Love. The report maintained the Knicks are still talking to the Clippers and Celtics with some possible three- and four-team deals. All of these trade talks could be moot with Anthony's no-trade clause.

Carmelo Anthony scored 26 points in Tuesday's loss to the Wizards, shooting 10-of-17 from the field.

He played a total of 32 minutes, but only logged a couple minutes in the fourth quarter of the blowout loss. Anthony grabbed five rebounds with one 3-pointer, but failed to record any assists, steals or blocks. The Knicks are showcasing him for a possible trade to the Clippers or Celtics, so we'd expect him to play on Wednesday vs. the Nets. His owners should be rooting for him to switch teams to avoid the shut-down risk.
Jan 31 - 9:51 PM

According to a report in the Boston Herald, the Celtics are still interested in potentially trading for Carmelo Anthony.

The Herald points out that the Celts are likely to be involved in any blockbuster deal that goes down between now and the deadline, as they have an enormous amount of assets that can help teams today (role players) and in the future (draft picks). Thus, it makes sense that the Clippers and Knicks would look to get Boston involved if they can't figure out a even trade between just the two teams. However, the C's would also be happy to add Melo's scoring to their own roster, assuming the Knicks asking price is right. Stay tuned, as this situation remains fluid.
Jan 31 - 10:40 AM

Carmelo Anthony posted a season-high 45 points during Sunday's quadruple overtime loss to the Hawks, adding three 3-pointers, six boards, four assists, one block and three turnovers in 46 minutes.

Anthony was en fuego to start the game, scoring 17 points in the first quarter alone, and he also hit a clutch turnaround jumper to force the game to double overtime. He probably would have had an even crazier line had he not fouled out during the third overtime period, but it's not like his owners have much to complain about when he's producing like this. Melo may get traded to the Clippers this season, but his value would hold steady as he'd be one of the primary offensive weapons in Los Angeles, and he'd also be in zero danger of a late-season shutdown playing for a playoff team.
Jan 29 - 7:53 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored 18 points on 8-of-26 shooting with 11 rebounds, one triple and a block, but the Knicks were able to beat the Hornets 110-107 on Friday.

Prior to the game, a report by ESPN indicated that the Knicks are actively searching for a third team to help facilitate a trade, so the chances of him being moved are rising by the day. Some Knicks fan were chanting "Trade Carmelo!" during the Nation Anthem, but to his credit he hit a clutch shot in the closing moments over the outstretched arm of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. A trade would diminish his shut-down risk, so his owners should be rooting for a busy deadline. On the other hand, the Knicks are still in the playoff hunt and it's hard to imagine Melo waiving his no-trade clause.
