Knicks rumors: Carmelo Anthony heavily considering adding Blazers to list
Carmelo Anthony’s list of teams he’d be willing to accept a trade to seems to be growing.
Now the Portland Trail Blazers are reportedly in the mix as a team Anthony would be willing to accept a trade to, according to Marc Berman of The New York Post.
The source told The Post that Anthony is heavily considering putting the Trail Blazers on his list as well.
This is on the heels of tonight’s news that Anthony has opened up his list of teams he’d be willing to be dealt to to include the Houston Rockets, Cleveland Cavaliers and Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Thunder were the new team to get involved in the Melo sweepstakes as all of the other three, including the Blazers, have already been rumored with Anthony.
Portland has been recruiting Anthony hard this summer with both backcourt studs Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum openly voicing their desire for the perennial All-Star to sign with them.
So far, the Blazers have yet to appear to be a realistic destination for Anthony until tonight when it has first been reported from Anthony’s side that Portland could indeed be a spot he’d be willing to head to.
On top of all of the reports tonight was the report that earlier this week Anthony’s camp was hoping to have a trade completed by Monday. That may say a lot about the increasing interest today about where else Melo may go. Training camp is pretty much upon us now so if Anthony wants to get somewhere before the preseason hits, it better be soon.
