The Post reported last month the Pelicans would be interested in facilitating a three-team Anthony deal. According to an NBA source, New Orleans also would have interest in getting Anthony for its roster. Nevertheless, an NBA source told The Post that Anthony has told the Knicks he would not agree to waive his no-trade clause for New Orleans.

According the source, the Knicks are still hopeful Anthony eventually will expand his wish list beyond the Rockets — with the Trail Blazers, Cavaliers, Thunder and Pelicans holding interest. The source said the Knicks brass has told Anthony he needs to do so because they are unwilling to make a “bad trade” — and he seemed to understand the team’s position.

Evan Fournier on trade rumors: I don’t care. I was already traded once from Denver to Orlando and it happened overnight, when there were no rumors. There are teams that are interested in me, it’s not that I’m going to leave, it’s a chess game, and as a player you do not control anything, so I ignore everything.
“It sounds kind of weird,” says Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, describing what it’s like to coach Ginobili in his twilight, “but it’s sort of a melancholy joy, and thinking that maybe every arena he steps into may be the last time I’ll see him in that arena.”
“I always make sure I touch him before every game,” says Popovich, “and remember what he’s meant to us over the years and how significant a factor he’s been in our success. I think I’m probably enjoying it more than ever, because I feel I’m about to lose him.”
Without the band, Nogueira hoped to revisit the bass class this season. He lamented that it didn’t make sense given how often the team has been on the road. “I live music 24 hours,” Nogueira said. “I try to live like a musician, but I don’t make money from it. Every day I’m studying different songs. Like, I like to pay attention to instruments. Like, this is what I’m looking for. I love it so much, music. I wish, one day, if I retire from basketball, to start, like, a career in music. This is my goal that I have.”
“It’s a Drake city,” Nogueira said. “Everywhere you go, it’s Drake, Drake, Drake. And I like some Drake songs and Drake is a very nice guy and he’s very talented. But you know, he’s Canadian, he’s so famous, so everywhere you go, they’re playing Drake. Actually, I don’t know any bar that’s like, oh, that bar plays rock.”
“One of the bands that I love so much and Canadians, people hate: Nickelback,” he said. “I don’t understand why people — because Canadian people, when you’re famous, they support you so much. They love to support famous Canadians. And I don’t understand because I grew up thinking Chad Kroeger is amazing, I love him. And when I came to Canada, people are like, ‘You like Nickelback?’ And everybody starts laughing in my face.”
