Carmelo Anthony No Longer Interested In Trade To Cleveland Cavaliers

Published

on

The hits keep on coming for the Cleveland Cavaliers and a rough offseason continues to get worse.

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has appeared to be on his way out of New York for a long time and momentum for his exodus started ramping up this offseason.

Anthony has been linked primarily to the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Houston Rockets, two teams Anthony has stated that he would be willing to waive his no-trade clause in order to move to.

Well, it appears that the Cavs are no longer on that list and that only the Houston Rockets remain.

According to a report from Marc Berman of the New York Post, Anthony is determined to end up with the Rockets and the Cavs are no longer being a destination of interest due to Kyrie Irving’s request to be dealt.

“A stalemate has ensued as sources indicate Anthony only wishes to waive his no-trade clause to go to the Rockets. Not even Cleveland, which is in turmoil, is good enough for Anthony as the Cavaliers are dealing with Kyrie Irving’s trade demand.”

The Irving drama continues to have a ripple effect on the Cavs and the NBA.

Anthony, 33, is signed through next season with a player option for 2018-19 and he apparently likes the Rockets roster, which is headlined by Chris Paul and James Harden, much better than a Cavs team that has been to the NBA Finals each of the past 3 seasons, winning one NBA title in 2016.

Bender can still turn his career around, but he has issues with 3 point shooting and the physicality of the NBA game.

Cavs’ Larry Drew Discusses Brandon Knight’s Play of Late

Published

The Cleveland Cavaliers knew that when they acquired Brandon Knight in a trade deadline deal with the Houston Rockets, that they were acquiring a player that may be a ways away from returning to form.

Knight, who missed the entire 2017-2018 season and appeared in only 14 games this season due to a torn ACL, has been showing signs of a return to form in his short stint with the Cavs, and it has caught the attention of Cavaliers’ head coach Larry Drew.

“I know what he’s gone through over a period with the injury and trying to come back from it,” Drew said of Knight, according to Joe Vardon of The Athletic.

“I know what he’s capable of doing. I know what type of player he is. He’s a fierce competitor. Not only does he do it from an offensive end, but defensively, he’s a tough kid. That addition in our lineup gives us a little versatility as far as we can move people around. … And I know how bad he wants to get back to the Brandon Knight of old. Certainly if he can get back to that, you guys are going to see a terrific player.”
