Update: July 13th, 2017

According to sources, the New York Knicks are contemplating holding on Carmelo Anthony. The report comes on the brink of the Knicks reportedly also hiring a General Manager. Scott Perry from the Sacremento Kings is rumored to be appointed the GM of the Knicks in the coming days.

Steve Mills will also be promoted to President for an internal move within the organization. With the new executive hirings, the Knicks may reconsider trading away their All-Star Foward.

In the past few days, it has been rumored that the Houston Rockets have engaged in serious talks to pry Anthony away from the Knicks. The Rockets are hoping to add Anthony in hopes of pairing him with James Harden and Chris Paul to compete against the Western Conference foes, Golden State Warriors.

It is likely that the executive hirings have stalled the trade talks for now and the new faces may want to reintroduce keeping Carmelo in New York.
