New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony says he doesn’t know what the team is going to do next, following their lack of movement at the trade deadline on Thursday. Anthony was connected to trade rumors involving the Cleveland Cavaliers, among others, that resulted in nothing.
Speaking with reporters after their loss against the Cavaliers on Thursday, Anthony voiced his concerns:
“No, to be honest with you, no,” Anthony told reporters. “I think they [were] planning on the trade deadline and they were trying to make moves. That was one plan. Now they got to get back to the drawing board for another plan for the future of the team.”
The uncertainty of what the Knicks are going to do moving forward seems to be Anthony’s biggest issue:
“Nobody likes to be in limbo,” Anthony said. “We all want to know what’s going on especially when it’s involving you. I think there’s other players who feel the same way. They want to be involved. Not involved but up to date.”
Anthony also won’t go out of his way to discuss the overall game plan with Knicks’ president, Phil Jackson:
“We’re in the same workplace, I see him,” Anthony said. “We see each other. You want me to spend more time with him in the office? If there’s something to talk about, whether it’s about the team, organization, I’m there. I come to work every day.”
Anthony scored 20 points in the Knicks’ loss to the Cavaliers on Thursday, 119-114. It marks the team’s eighth defeat in their past 10 games.
