However, trading Anthony is complex and not likely to happen unless the Knicks are willing to take pennies on the dollar in return. ‘Melo has a no-trade clause (allowing him to essentially pick his destination) and a 15 percent trade kicker. The number of teams Anthony might waive the no-trade for who want him is limited to maybe at best a couple, with the Los Angeles Clippers being the most likely — and they are offering so little the two teams are trying to find a third partner.
Which is why I say in this latest PBT Extra I expect Anthony to be a Knick when the season ends. Things could be different around the draft or heading into next season, but for now, don’t bet on a trade.
