Carmelo Anthony open to Knicks return?

If point guard Chris Paul makes his way to the Knicks via a trade, sources have said Anthony is likely to want to follow. Anthony and Paul are close friends and have dreamed of playing together on an NBA team. Both players were represented by Knicks president Leon Rose when he was basketball chief of Creative Artists Agency. A source said Rose is amenable to an Anthony return even without Paul.

ANALYSIS: Chris Paul would prefer to land with a contender as OKC is likely to trade him this offseason, but the Knicks are a real possibility. The Thunder are entering full rebuild mode with a young roster and a new coach, so trading Chris Paul and his hefty contract make a lot of sense for OKC. There have been several reports that CP3 would be interested in playing for New York because of the big market they have to offer. If CP3 does end up on the Knicks roster, Carmelo is reportedly likely to follow because of their close relationship and his ties with the Knicks.

Anthony, however, did recently say he would be returning to the Blazers next season, but his mind may change if his long time friend Chris Paul ends up in New York.
