In a recent interview with NY Observer, Knicks star Carmelo Anthony stated he wanted out of New York and wants to become a free agent.
“I want to be free agent. I think everybody in the NBA dreams to be a free agent at least one time in their career. It’s like you have an evaluation period, you know.”
Anthony has 2 years left in his contract with the Knicks worth $23.3M. However, according to reports, he will make more money re-signing with the Knicks than with another team.
Knicks president said last month that he has “every intentions” of keeping Anthony.
Besides that interview, Anthony has not stated anything publically about opting out.
