It appears that the New York Knicks and All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony will finally part ways this off-season, per Ian Begley of ESPN.
On Friday, team president Phil Jackson held a press conference where he told reporters that he thought the team and Anthony would be better off without each other.
“We’ve not been able to win with [Anthony] on the court at this time,” Jackson said. “I think the direction with our team is that he’s a player that would be better off somewhere else and using his talent somewhere where he can win or chase that championship.”
This breakup comes on the heels of the Knicks’ fourth consecutive losing season despite adding the talents of Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, Courtney Lee and Brandon Jennings in the 2016 off-season.
If this is truly the end for Anthony, who turns 33 in May, in New York, he will have finished with a record of 206-267 with three playoff appearances in six years with the team.
