Carmelo: Knicks Shouldn’t Be In Trade Talks
Carmelo Anthony does not believe that his New York Knicks should make any trades before the NBA trade deadline on February 21.
In an interview with ESPN’s Ian Begley, Carmelo Anthony quoted, “We don’t need to make no moves,” Anthony said. “No, we’re good. … What are we going to go get? I don’t know what we going to go get for (Shumpert).”
When asked about trade rumors revolving Knicks guard Iman Shumpert, Anthony said, ”Shump, he ain’t going nowhere. He ain’t got to worry about that. The Knicks shouldn’t even be in trade talks.”
The Knicks have won 32 of their first 49 games, and are only 2.5 games behind the first place spot in the Eastern Conference.
