After many reports, it seems that Carmelo Anthony may have finally come to a decision. According to Frank Isola, Melo will announce his intentions to re-sign with the New York Knicks tomorrow:
Via the New York Daily News:
Carmelo Anthony is prepared to spend the prime years of his career in New York, the Daily News has learned.
A person close to Anthony told The News on Wednesday that barring a last minute change of heart Anthony will re-sign with the Knicks after “agonizing over this” for the past week.
“He will have something for everybody on Thursday,” said the friend who was with Anthony before Anthony’s scheduled workout with Kevin Durant and Kevin Love in Los Angeles on Wednesday. “He is really torn because this is the biggest decision of his career. But he wants to get it done in New York. He told me he believes in Phil.”
Update: ESPN’s Ramona Shelbourne has been told by Anthony’s agent that the star “hasn’t made a decision yet.“
It seemed that this was almost inevitable, though reports Anthony was looking to play with LeBron James threw a wrench in the plan. However, Melo seems to really believe in Phil Jackson, and all indications are that he intends to stay in New York long-term.
