New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony said he didn’t want to have any input on what the team did during this week’s NBA trade deadline.
There were discussions about possible bigger deals, but New York was unable to complete such moves which has Carmelo a bit perplexed. Did the Knicks do well at the deadline? Did they fall flat on their face? The former Orangeman doesn’t really seem to know and at this point, doesn’t really seem to care.
Carmelo Anthony isn’t sure whether the Knicks standing pat at the trade deadline while their competitors improved was the right or wrong thing to do. But he knows not to dwell on it.
“We didn’t make any moves,’’ Anthony said after the latest disastrous loss, a 129-121 double-overtime defeat to the Magic on Friday night. “Should we have or not? That’s not for me to say. We didn’t, we move on. We have the same team and have to move on.’’
Carmelo was obviously hoping the Knicks could swing some type of blockbuster deal (likely for Rajon Rondo of the Boston Cetlics), but there simply was never any chance of such a move happening.
For now, the Knicks are who they are. And that’s who they’re going to be for the remainder of the season.
