Knicks Insider: “I Can See Them Clearing A Spot” For 10-Time All-Star

With over half the season done, ten-time All-Star, and former New York Knicks great Carmelo Anthony is still an unsigned free agent. Will he get another shot in the NBA? According to Knicks Insider Ian Begley, if no other team comes calling, and if 'Melo wants to finish his career in a Knicks uniform, it will happen. 

"My understanding is, that if he wants to be back here (New York), and the scenario works out for both sides, then he'll be back here."

He says, essentially, that if no other playoff-bound team comes calling after the trade deadline offering him a meaningful role, "and he wants to get on an active-roster this year, I can see the Knicks clearing a spot for him, maybe waiving one of the players at the end of their roster, and bringing him on and allowing him a chance to finish as an active player."

Begley says that's a very real possibility because of Melo's relationship with Knicks' team president Leon Rose "and so many others with the Knicks organization." 

It would certainly be nice to see this all-time great go out on his own terms.

Anthony has played 19 years in the NBA, and sports a career 22.5 points per game average, with 6.2 rebounds, and 35.5% shooting from beyond the arc.
