CARMELO ANTHONY’S AGENT DENIES THAT THE PLAYER WANTS TO LEAVE THE KNICKS

Carmelo Anthony declared that he doesn’t want to be traded by the N.Y Knicks. NFL betting lines

“I don’t want to be traded,” Anthony related after the Knicks’ morning shootaround. “I don’t know where that foolishness came from, so let’s put a cap on that and make (sure) this the last time I hear about that.”

According to a communication, Anthony would welcome a trade from the Knicks. The report recounted Anthony told a confidant after the Knicks’ loss in Chicago Monday that he needed to be traded. The report also said he was unhappy partly because he suspected Coach Mike D’Antoni and interim general manager Glen Grunwald don’t trust him. Football odds

“I have no idea where that came from. I’m bored with hearing it. It came out this morning from I guess a secret source. I’m tired of secret sources,” he announced.

The Knicks (18-24) are in a tailspin, having lost 6 straight and 7 of 8 to fall 6 games below .500 and into a tie for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Anthony further said he doesn’t have any problems with D’Antoni.

“I support Mike 100 % regardless of what is going on, as far as us losing basketball games,” Anthony declared. “We all need each other right now and this is the best time to come together and stick with one another … There are a lot of things being recounted out there about Mike, about myself, and it is just a handful of foolishness at this time. So we’ve got to stick together. We’re not going to do it without one another.”

The Knicks purchased Anthony in a three-team blockbuster trade before the 2011 trade cut off point. With Anthony on board, N.Y has a 32-42 record, including the playoffs.

The Knicks had high expectations coming into this season with Anthony, Amare Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler on the check-list. After struggling through the 1st six weeks, New York went 8-1 in a 9-game stretch in mid-February with Jeremy Lin at point guard.

Anthony was sidelined for 7 of those 9 games because of a groin injury. Now, since his return February 20, the Knicks have lost eight of ten.

“It’s funny that when we lose two games in a row, it’s said I would have liked to be traded,” Anthony expounded. “I’ve been thru a lot of difficulty in my career. I have never run from it and I’m not about to now.”

“I’ve only been here a year,” he said. “I do not really want to leave now, so I’m here to stay.”

Stoudemire thinks Anthony wants to remain with N.Y.

“Melo loves the city of New York, he likes playing for the Knicks,” Stoudemire expounded when asked questions about the report. “So I don’t think that is true at all.”

“No-one likes losing,” Anthony said. “That’s where the disappointment comes in. So we’ve just got to paste together as a unit and leave all of the (distractions) outside the gym and attempt to go out there and win some basketball games. Whatever we gotta do, we’ve got to do it and it starts now.”
