If the Knicks need a Cavaliers’ first-round pick for Carmelo Anthony, it’s problematic
CLEVELAND — Any potential trade for Carmelo Anthony by the Cavaliers would have to include a No. 1 pick heading to the Knicks, which makes such a deal unlikely, a league source told cleveland.com.
Numerous outlets reported Friday that New York reached out to the Cavs about Anthony, but no real progress was made (no parameters of any deal were discussed). The story, essentially, is that Anthony has “added” to the list of teams for which he would waive his no-trade clause to include the Cavs and Oklahoma City Thunder.
Previously, only the Houston Rockets were on that list. But a source with knowledge of Anthony’s thinking told cleveland.com that he always would’ve approved a trade to the Cavs, and would’ve considered Cleveland (along with Houston) if he were bought out of his $26.2 million contract. – CLICK HERE to read full story.

The Carmelo Anthony saga has officially entered a new chapter.
Throughout the summer, there have been all sorts of rumors and reports about where Anthony might end up, but because of his no-trade clause, and the fact he would only waive it for a deal to the Houston Rockets, the New York Knicks had not been able to get anything done.
Now, however, Anthony has reportedly expanded that list of teams for which he’d waive his no-trade clause, and it includes the Cleveland Cavaliers. Via ESPN:
