Carmelo Anthony No Longer Interested In Trade To Cleveland Cavaliers

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.
