What’s Next for Melo?
It’s been awhile now since Phil Jackson and the Knicks brass have tried to send Melo on his way out of New York. Obviously, Carmelo has outlasted Phil Jackson in the organization but the questions remain surrounding Carmelo.
It’s still uncertain if the Knicks will move on from him, sending him to the Houston Rockets, which is looking like the only team he’ll wave his no trade clause for.
From Carmelo’s vantage point, if the Knicks can find a trade partner to a winning team I’m taking it without a doubt. Carmelo would look good in Houston with James Harden and Chris Paul, one of his closest friends but the Rockets don’t have many players to trade with all the moves they’ve made this offseason. The Rockets and Knicks are trying to find a third or even fourth team to enter the mix but they’ve been unsuccessful.
Carmelo, one of the best scorers in the league, is full of uncertainty on what his future holds. Will he remain a Knick with Kristaps Porzingis on a team and organization that continues to struggle?
Phil Jackson left his mark on the Knicks signing awful free agents for multiple years.
The Knicks are a disaster and Carmelo is going down in the fire.
