ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports trade talks between the Knicks and Rockets regarding Carmelo Anthony are currently dormant.

In a not so surprising bit of NBA gossip, on Thursday we learned something “new” about the trade talks between the New York Knicks and Houston Rockets regarding Carmelo Anthony. They’re not going well.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that talks between the two sides have gone “dormant, ” and both teams are preparing for Anthony to enter camp with the Knicks. That won’t be awkward at all.

The worst-kept secret in the NBA is that Carmelo Anthony wants out of New York, and he only wants to do it for one team. That’s the Houston Rockets. Apparently, the elephant in the room (that being Ryan Anderson‘s contract) still remains.

Per Woj, Houston is currently trying to get a third or fourth team involved in any deal. They need a lot of help to pull this one off, but if we learned one thing this summer it’s not to rule anything out.

Right now it seems like the two sides are just banging their heads against the wall. Although it’s hard to imagine that continuing that for much longer.

Anthony wants to play with James Harden and his good friend Chris Paul. He’s determined on a reunion with old foe Mike D’Antoni. The drama continues.
