Free Agency, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder
New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony told ESPN on Monday that his recruitment of marquee free agent Kevin Durant has already begun and will not be affected “whether he meets with the Knicks or not.” ‎”I’m with KD now; he’s right downstairs. We’ve been together. We’ve been talking. I do consider myself part of the Knicks, so that meeting has already taken place,” Anthony told ESPN in an interview that will air later Monday on SportsCenter.
The positive feelings between Joakim Noah and the Knicks are mutual. According to an NBA source, the Knicks have “a very high interest” in signing Noah to play center in a frontcourt that would feature Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis. Another NBA source said Noah is eager for at least a sitdown with the Knicks.
