Carmelo Anthony only played 10 games last season, but he still wants to remain in the NBA. And if that opportunity comes with the New York Knicks, Anthony will consider it.
Anthony didn’t rule out the possibility of returning to New York when asked about it, according to SNY.
Could Carmelo Anthony re-join the Knicks if Kevin Durant signs with New York this summer?
The former Knicks’ star isn’t ruling it out.
“I have to see what’s going on,” he said with a smile when asked by SNY.tv on Sunday at the Nike EYBL stop here.
I asked Melo if he would want to re-join the Knicks if KD signs there.
‘I gotta see what’s going on,’ he said with a smile. https://t.co/ou2KPfaH84

Jalen Rose said he hopes Anthony plays again.
“He can still contribute, it’s just finding the right opportunity is tough because unless there’s a major injury, a contending team probably wouldn’t add him,” Rose told TMZSports in January. “Then a lottery team’s probably looking to ‘Stop Tryin’ for Zion’ so they’re tanking in a lot of ways.
“Maybe an injury happens and he gets back in the league. But I hope so, I hope so. I don’t want him to end after 10 games in Houston. He deserves better for somebody going to the Hall of Fame.”
If the Knicks end up signing two max-free agents like Durant and Kyrie Irving, Anthony might be a good veteran player to have come off the bench on a low-end contract, but we know Carmelo doesn’t like to be in the background.
His career might as well be over.
