Despite his future being in limbo, Carmelo Anthony said he is at “peace” with his current state in which it’s unclear if he’ll remain with the New York Knicks or end up on a title contender via a blockbuster trade. Considering so much is in flux, it’s also interesting, though perhaps not surprising, that he hasn’t met with the Knicks organization on the matter.
“An emotional roller coaster,” Anthony told reporters when asked to describe the last 12 months. “Emotional roller coaster. But I had to find peace. I had to come to peace with myself, come to peace with kind of the situation I’m in. Kind of try to find a happiness again. I kind of lost that a little bit, but I’m finding it now and it feels good.”
Anthony briefly spoke to reporters at The Basketball Tournament’s Day of Giving in Baltimore, where he was given a meritorious service award by Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh.
Anthony has been connected to several teams this offseason as a trade target, including the Houston Rockets. But the All-Star forward told reporters with a smile, “I can’t comment on that.” Anthony holds a rare no-trade clause and would have to waive it prior to completion of any trade.
Anthony has emphasized his desire to play for an NBA title contender, but his top priority in gauging his NBA future heavily hinges around remaining close to his 10-year-old son, Kiyan.
Anthony acknowledged that the last year with the Knicks have been an “emotional roller coaster” and referred to Phil Jackson’s recent firing as a “business” move.
