NBA Trade Rumor: Carmelo Anthony doesn't expect New York Knicks to make trades

The NBA trade deadline is four days away, which means that it’s truly getting to the 11h hour for some teams who are looking to make trades. One team that many are looking at as possibly making a deal are the New York Knicks, but it’s starting to look like they’ll be standing pat at the deadline.

On Saturday, a report surfaced that appeared to suggest this was the plan for the Knicks and star forward Carmelo Anthony has backed that claim up. According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, Melo doesn’t have high expectations for the Knicks moves at the deadline.

“I don’t know man,’’ Anthony said. “I don’t know who’s tradeable, who’s on the block. Not many people that I think can come right now in February and change our whole season around. This is a difficult time.

There really aren’t a ton of guys the Knicks can trade away, although there has been interest in Beno Udrih, Iman Shumpert and Tim Hardaway Jr. Despite that interest, the Knicks seem complacent not making a move at the deadline.
