If the Knicks wanted to rebuild, Carmelo Anthony would consider waiving his no-trade clause.
"I have the power, but still I would talk to [the front office]," Anthony said. "We would be in communication if they feel like they want to go in a different direction, they want to start rebuilding for the future. If they tell me they want to scrap this whole thing, yeah, I have to consider it." All this said, he said his family loves it in New York and his son goes to school in NYC, so he may not waive it even if the Knicks rebuild. Jan 20 - 4:40 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored 34 points against the Wizards on Thursday, adding 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He scored 25 points in the second quarter to set a Knicks franchise record for most points in a quarter. Anthony played more power forward in this game and he's looked a lot more comfortable in that role. Plus, the Knicks are more likely to stagger him from Kristaps Porzingis going forward. While Melo is playing better, his troublesome knee and shoulder will be black marks on his fantasy value. Keep him rolling, of course.

Carmelo Anthony needed 14 shot attempts to score 13 points on Wednesday, making five field goals with four boards and three assists in 33 minutes.

Melo's shot selection was poor tonight and he failed to take advantage of some switches with smaller defenders, which is unusual. He added three 3-pointers with one block and just one turnover, so it wasn't a total loss for fantasy purposes, and the Knicks ran away with a 117-106 victory despite Anthony's struggles. Go figure.

Phil Jackson reportedly met with Carmelo Anthony on Tuesday to ask him if he wants to remain in New York.

A source of Ramona Shelburne described the meeting as "far more contentious" than previous sit downs, and it looks like things in New York are reaching a boiling point with the Knicks falling out of the playoff hunt, and a Jackson confidant Charley Rosen recently publishing an extremely negative piece on Melo stating he's "outlived his usefulness in New York." Time and again Melo has stated that his desire is to remain with the Knicks and that he's not interested in waiving his no-trade clause, and neither of those sentiments changed during Tuesday's meeting.

Carmelo Anthony scored 30 points against the Hawks on Monday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

After the game, coach Jeff Hornacek said the Knicks weren't used to playing Melo strictly at the four. As you might expect, Melo has seen a 5.6 usage rate bump without Kristaps Porzingis next to him. On the lighter side, Melo called Ron Baker "Burgundy" in a halftime interview (video in link below), which has been a nickname for Baker since training camp.

Carmelo Anthony said on Sunday that if the Knicks' front office doesn't want him, "that’s a conversation we should have."

His comments came in reaction to a polemical story from one of team president Phil Jackson's confidantes, Charley Rosen, who opined that Anthony "has outlived his usefulness in New York." Melo seems to have inferred that Rosen's column represents the view of the Knicks' front office, but he also said that he won't waive his rare no-trade clause. With the Knicks fading from the playoff picture, Melo's evident dissatisfaction with the team's leadership will make him a fixture in the rumor-mill.
Jan 15 - 9:49 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting during Sunday's 116-101 loss to the Raptors, to go with three 3-pointers, one rebound, one assist, one block and one turnover in 26 minutes.

Melo's low minute total can be attributed to the blowout nature of the game, but his owners can expect a bounce-back performance Monday vs. the Hawks. For what it's worth, Anthony is reportedly becoming increasingly frustrated as the losses pile up in New York, and he may consider waiving his no-trade clause if the Knicks can strike a deal with the Clippers or Cavs. A move away from New York would likely hurt Melo's value, but nothing is imminent at the moment.
Jan 15 - 6:07 PM

According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, Carmelo Anthony went on a tirade in the locker room after Wednesday's loss to Philly.

While Anthony has never considered requesting a trade according to this report, one of Anthony's associates said "that was as down as I've ever seen him after a game." Given Anthony's salary, trading him would be complicated and he also has a no-trade clause, meaning he would have to agree to a move. However, Anthony is becoming "increasingly frustrated" with losing and it's no secret that he doesn't have the greatest relationship with Phil Jackson. Anthony did respond to Wednesday's loss with a 23-point effort in a win over the Bulls on Thursday, but the Knicks will need even more from him on Sunday vs. Toronto. For now, a trade isn't imminent.
Jan 15 - 9:38 AM

Saturday's New York Post references a report that Carmelo Anthony might consider waiving his no-trade clause if he were to be traded to the Clippers or the Cavs.

Per the Post: "Charley Rosen, one of Jackson’s longtime friends, wrote in a Thursday column on, in an unsourced piece: 'It’s understood that [Anthony would] only accept being dealt to the Cavaliers or the Clippers' and possibly could be sold on the Lakers." However, the Post also recognizes the fact that due to his trade-kicker and preference for New York, it is very unlikely Melo gets dealt this season.
Jan 14 - 9:27 AM

Carmelo Anthony hit 10-of-19 shots for 23 points with nine rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers on Thursday against the Bulls.

Melo continues to have a solid month, averaging 33.4 minutes, 23 points, 6.1 rebounds, 4.7 assists, and 1.0 steals per game in January. If Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) misses any more time, Anthony will get a bump in usage. His next game is against the Raptors, a team he scored 31 points against earlier this season.
Jan 12 - 11:27 PM

Carmelo Anthony's shoulder injury didn't appear to bother him on Wednesday, as he scored 28 points on 11-of-25 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs, with two boards and three blocks.

Anthony said recently that he's playing through pain and requires constant attention to keep his shoulder injury at bay, which is ominous news for fantasy owners. He's shooting a career-worst 42.1 percent from the field and could be a shutdown candidate if the Knicks slip out of the playoff hunt -- at the moment they are 11th in the East. He passed Robert Parish on the NBA's all-time scoring list tonight, moving to No. 26, and if you want to trade Melo this is a great time to float some offers.
Jan 11 - 10:08 PM

Carmelo Anthony was ejected from Monday's game vs. the Pelicans after picking up two technical fouls.

The Knicks were getting blown out and Melo wouldn't stop arguing with the officials during a timeout. Frustrations are at an all-time high in New York this season and the team still has no idea what's going on with Derrick Rose. Anthony finished with 18 points, six rebounds, one assist and two triples.
Jan 9 - 9:08 PM

Carmelo Anthony said that he will keep playing through the pain in his right shoulder.

"I don’t think it’ll get to that point," Anthony said when asked if he will shut it down for a while. "Think now it’s just a tolerance level, seeing what I can do and what I can’t. I don’t think it’s a situation where just shut it down - maybe a game here, game there." The Knicks have three back-to-back sets in the next couple weeks, so don't be surprised if he picks up a maintenance day or two. His fantasy owners shouldn't be too concerned long term as long as the Knicks can remain competitive.
Jan 8 - 9:30 AM

Carmelo Anthony scored 17 points during a 123-109 loss to the Pacers on Saturday, adding two rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

He did not play at all in the fourth quarter due to the Knicks trailing 96-70 at the end of the third. Anthony has talked about his shoulder being "bad" and how he may have to rest it at some point, but there is no word of any plan in place. His fantasy owners will want to be careful when they play on road back-to-back sets. They have a road game to start a back-to-back in Philly on Wednesday and also another one in Toronto on Sunday Jan. 15, so keep your eyes open on those days.
Jan 7 - 9:43 PM

Carmelo Anthony said he's been dealing with a right shoulder injury.

"It’s bad," Anthony said on Friday. "You know what it is, it’s an adjustment that you have to make on the fly. Like some days it feels good, some days it’s tight. Throughout the course of the game, certain shots, certain moves, you feel like the strength isn’t there." He said he's had "around-the-clock treatment" for his shoulder, and that rest is the only thing that'll help him. For now, he should be ready to play, but keep an eye out for some rest on a back-to-back set.
