Wednesday night is the last game that the New York Knicks will play before the trade deadline. Could it be Carmelo Anthony’s last?

- Oklahoma City Thunder (31-25)
- Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
- Wednesday, Feb. 15, 9:30 p.m. ET on the MSG Network
Carmelo Anthony hasn’t strayed an inch from his position that he hasn’t even considered leaving the New York Knicks. Despite all the nonsense that’s been flung his way from Phil Jackson, Anthony has remained steadfast in his loyalty.
The nine-time All-Star stuck to his guns on Wednesday. Per Ian Begley of ESPN New York, Anthony not only hasn’t even thought about his infamous no-trade clause but he hasn’t even spoken to Jackson about a potential move.
Carmelo said again today that he hasn't thought about his no-trade clause because management hasn't talked to him about any possible deals.

The Knicks are playing their last game before the trade deadline on Wednesday night. Anthony clearly doesn’t think that’s relevant. The recent injury to Kevin Love makes a swap with the Cavs unlikely, but rumors of a deal with the Clippers will linger right up until the deadline.
In 55 games, Anthony is currently averaging 34.0 minutes, 23.2 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 0.9 steals on a slash line of .441/.367/.823.
