Jackson was supposed to recruit free agents, and instead he chased them away. One longtime league official said the other day that while he agreed with Jackson’s desire to trade Anthony to start a true makeover, he couldn’t understand why the Knicks president went out of his way to trash the forward at every turn. “Doesn’t he understand that Carmelo still has a really big voice amongst the players in this league?” the official asked. “No, Carmelo isn’t the same player he once was, but LeBron and Chris Paul and a lot of very important stars really like and respect him. So what do you think those guys are going to say when Phil tries to recruit them to New York?”

Storyline: Jackson-Anthony Dynamic
Carmelo Anthony’s estranged wife, La La Anthony, said on “The Wendy Williams Show” on Tuesday that the New York Knicks star’s top priority going forward is to remain close to their 10-year-old son, Kiyan. Knicks president Phil Jackson has made it clear that his preference is to trade Anthony this offseason. Jackson said recently that Anthony indicated to the club he’d prefer to stay in New York. Anthony has a no-trade clause and would have to agree to waive it prior to the completion of any trade.
