Carmelo Anthony’s NBA future remains uncertain with no takers yet for the all-star forward. The Cleveland Cavaliers turned down a swap involving Kevin Love but this may not be the end of a potential NBA trade happening soon.
According to the New York Post, a lot could depend when the Cavs visit the New York Knicks this Saturday. The Cavs have been slumping as of late and there is a chance that the Cavs could revisit a potential LeBron James –Carmelo Anthony tandem. This is for as long as Kevin Love is not included in the mix.
For now, the Cavs are trying to address their backcourt problem. The Cavs recently held a midseason tryout session workout that included Mario Chalmers, Jordan Farmar, Kirk Hinrich and Lance Stephenson. Head coach Tyronn Lue said that the workout went well but didn’t divulge if there would be any signings to follow, NBA.com reported.
Anthony has yet to touch on a possible relocation, saying that his family weighs in heavily on the decision. Trade talks have not been a distraction for Anthony despite contributing only 15 points against the Brooklyn Nets. Prior to that, he had been averaging big numbers – 30 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists.
