Cleveland Cavaliers Reject Major Trade Offer From The Knicks

Anthony is now in his third-to-last year of his contract and earning $24.6 million this season.

Additionally, the Knicks would have allegedly discussed with Anthony his no-trade clause has the Cavaliers been interested. Still, his name could continue to come up in trade rumors until the trade deadline next month. So now the question is not whether or not these two super stars want to play together, it is if their teams can somehow agree on a deal that will see this happening. Still, the clause puts players in control of their destiny. While the Knicks didn't lose ground on the No. 8 seed Chicago Bulls (23-24), falling to a team that was just 15-29 coming into the night has not gone over well with fans on social media. When you need more offense, this wouldn't be the most bad thing in the world.

Anthony, 32, is owed $54M over the next two seasons.

Rivers is averaging 11.9 points on 44.9 percent shooting (both career-highs) to go with 2.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game in 2016-17 and has proven to be a very capable National Basketball Association rotation guard. The Knicks want to rebuild and have that rebuild center around their star phenom Kristaps Porzingis.

But moving Anthony is a balancing act.

The Inauguration Of President Trump 19:59
Trump tweeted that he began drafting the speech three weeks ago. "You're not forgotten any more", he said . Ten of thousands of people are expected to protest Trump's inauguration on Friday in Washington, D.C .

The Clippers are a team that would interest Anthony, league sources said. That narrows the list by itself, but the Knicks also have to find a return package that suits them. He may struggle to do that if the asking price continues to be as high as it was in an offer to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Kevin Love. Plus, the Clippers don't have much in the way of draft picks to trade.

According to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Knicks have continued to shop Carmelo Anthony, calling up the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers to gauge interest.

In fact, the Knicks are prohibited from acquiring Blake Griffin due to a complicated rule in the collective bargaining agreement.

Let's not forget that Anthony has a no trade clause in his contract and recently stated that he would consider waiving it for the right opportunity. The Knicks can not deal the nine-time All-Star unless he signs off on a suitable landing spot.
