As suspected, trade talks involving the New York Knicks and Houston Rockets have not exactly been alive and well lately.
In fact, according to NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, talks centered on Knicks star Carmelo Anthony have been “fairly dormant” in recent days.
“They’ve tried to find third and fourth teams that the Rockets need to help facilitate a trade, and they haven’t been able to do that,” Wojnarowski said. “Both sides are prepared for the (reality) that Carmelo may have to go to camp with the Knicks.”
Meanwhile, Wojnarowski mentioned that other smaller pieces could be on the move now that Kyrie Irving has been traded from Cleveland to Boston.
“Teams that didn’t get Kyrie Irving may look to do some things around the edges between now and training camp,” Wojnarowski said.
Anthony, 33, has a no-trade in his contract and reportedly is only willing to waive it for a move to Houston or Cleveland.
As the New York Post reported Thursday, Anthony may have renewed interest in the Cavaliers following the Irving deal.
