The Melo-drama may finally be over.
According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, Carmelo Anthony plans on re-signing with the New York Knicks barring a “last-second change of heart.” Anthony will announce his decision to return to the Knicks Thursday, Isola says.
The news has to be taken with a grain of salt for now, since the Knicks still have not been officially informed of Melo’s decision and according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, Melo’s agent says his client hasn’t reached a decision yet. But assuming this report is true, Melo is likely turning down a max offer from the Los Angeles Lakers over four years and the chance at a championship with the Chicago Bulls for something close to a five-year, $129 million deal.
Obviously such a huge decision comes with a long list of pros and cons for Carmelo Anthony, and we’re going to cover them all.
