Carmelo Anthony was linked to the New York Knicks this offseason, yet he had no interest to return to the team.

Instead, Anthony decided to re-sign for another season with the Portland Trail Blazers.

“At this point, it wasn’t really a lot [of consideration]. The Knicks were making moves and were trying to figure out the direction they wanted to go in.

They weren’t done making moves. I’m sure they have a plan. I don’t think me coming in and trying to mess their plan up was good for either party,” Anthony said, per SNY TV.

Anthony spent six years with the Knicks (2011-2017).
