Report: Knicks Plan to Ask Carmelo Anthony to Add More Teams to Trade Wishlist

As the New York Knicks struggle to find deals worth their while with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Houston Rockets in exchange for Carmelo Anthony, it appears the franchise and its superstar have come to a stalemate.

Anthony reportedly is unwilling to waive his No Trade clause for any teams other than Cleveland and Houston, where he would team up with one of his best friends – LeBron James or Chris Paul – and contend for a championship.

The Rockets and Cavs don’t exactly have the young players or assets the Knicks would want in return for Anthony and so far, there haven’t been any deals involving multiple teams to help build a trade that make sense for everybody.

According to ESPN’s¬†Adrian Wojnarowski, the Portland Trail Blazers are trying to get in on the action and acquire Anthony.

According to a report from the New York Post,¬†the Knicks seem to be on board with the idea of trading him to Portland rather than Cleveland or Houston, as the Trail Blazers have more pieces that would fit New York’s rebuild better than the veteran-laden Cavs and Rockets.

The question remains as to whether or not Anthony would be willing to accept a trade to Portland, but it adds another wrinkle into the ever-changing Melo rumor mill.
