New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has no interest in going to Cleveland after the Kyrie Irving drama started.
There’s a big reason the New York Knicks are finding it so difficult to trade Carmelo Anthony. The ten-time All-Star reportedly only wants to go to one team. Now that they have Chris Paul, it’s the Houston Rockets.
According to Marc Berman of The New York Post, Anthony has even crossed the Cleveland Cavaliers off of his list. After the drama surrounding Kyrie Irving, Anthony has legitimately moved on to just one squad.
A potentially tenuous reunion with former head coach Mike D’Antoni isn’t enough to keep Anthony away from the Rockets.
Speaking of D’Antoni, his brother Dan had something to say about new Knicks point guard Ramon Sessions.
Per Marc Berman, Dan D’Antoni lobbied for the Phoenix Suns to draft Sessions when his brother was head coach back in 2007 and again when his brother was head coach of the Knicks.
“We were trying to get him with the Knicks back then,’’ D’Antoni told The Post. “We were trying to establish that [speed-ball] offense in New York. And when [he] came out in the draft, we [Phoenix] had the 29th pick. I told Phoenix they ought to take him, he’d be in the league a long time and he’d run our offense better than a lot of people. They didn’t do it.
The current head coach of the Marshall Thundering Herd continued with a scouting report for the 31-year-old point guard.
“Ramon gives the ball up, he gets it to the right spot first but he’s capable of taking it to the basket,’’ D’Antoni said. “But he spreads the ball around and keeps the flow. The coach is going to enjoy him on the team. He’s very good at spreading the floor.’’
According to D’Antoni, the Knicks got a “great get” with Sessions.
“He’s a very knowledgeable basketball player who understands,’’ Dan D’Antoni said. “He’ll be a great fit, a great pick-and-roll guy and keeping the floor spread and delivering pass in corners through penetration. And he knows how to throw the hockey assist, to keep the offense moving. He’s good at that. They got a great get.’’
