Knicks president Jackson: Carmelo Anthony would be better off somewhere else
So we're really pleased with how he's developed.
He's facing another player who gets triple-doubles in bunches. Joakim Noah, similar to Rose, is dealing with a major health setback (rotator cuff tear) and it is unknown if his stint with the team is going to be extended.
Even Jackson's cryptic tweets about Anthony during the season were coming from a coaching spirit, as Jackson explained.
For the Knicks, the situation only continues to get messier between Jackson and Anthony.
After the Knicks season finale on Wednesday, Anthony said that he was "open to being traded".
So if the New York Knicks president of basketball operations is intent on trading his All-Star forward, Anthony might be willing to go. "But I sure wish we would've done better because we could've said 'see we are on the right track'". "But he wants to redeem himself as a player".
Anthony's Instagram post, of course, was in response to Jackson telling the media that 'Melo would be, "Better off elsewhere".
Among the people who "liked" Anthony's post were Porzingis, LeBron James, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade.
KRISTAPS Porzingis has had enough of the dysfunction and drama hounding the New York Knicks that he reportedly skipped the team's traditional player exit meetings. Jackson acknowledged that the Knicks are "rebuilding" and probably won't be contending soon. The kicker is that Jackson also gave Anthony a no-trade clause, which makes it more hard to unload his massive contract.

"This is not something that you want to have labelled on your career".
"So in our talks this time we talked about how we're going to go about doing what we have to do", Jackson said. During the lead-up to the February trade deadline, the Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Toronto Raptors, Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics were linked to Anthony.
"Some teams called that weren't [acceptable] to Melo and his group", Jackson said.
Dolan has quietly let Jackson operate, insisting that he would allow him to finish out the five-year contract with no interference. "That's a big hole to fill". But that's still to be determined.
"That's a long way down the road", he said. Yet Jackson has his sights set on Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony.
Westbrook said the fact that Oklahoma City is matching up Harden does add a little something to the matchup.
He also said he doesn't regret re-signing Anthony.
At the end of the day, Jackson has 12 rings and Carmelo has none. He's an elite scorer.
Meanwhile it is the Knicks' loyal fans who suffer, who beg for this team to show some semblance of competency and direction, but find themselves forced to listen to Jackson's ramblings Friday - the NBA's equivalent of Nero fiddling while Rome burned. I can't regret it. And he's chosen to go back to Chicago to do that.
