Carmelo Anthony staged a dinner meeting with his entourage Friday night to discuss his free-agent future, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Anthony, his Creative Artists Agency agent Leon Rose, and CAA advisor William Wesley were in the group of six at a well-known haunt on 28th Street called Pergola in a strategy session discussing their options. The source said the group sat in a private back room.

Anthony has kept an extremely low profile since the regular season ended in mid-April unlike past offseasons.

On April 29, Anthony met secretly for two hours at a Tribeca steakhouse with Knicks president Phil Jackson, who told him at the time Steve Kerr was going to be the new Knicks coach.

Things have changed significantly since Anthony and Jackson met. Kerr passed on Knicks after initially being lowballed on a three-year, $13.2 million offer. Kerr’s reluctance to sign allowed the Warriors to rejoin the fray after Kerr initially declined to interview with them.

Jackson is now back to square one and Anthony could have been getting updates on the Knicks coaching search which has been at a standstill. Jackson prefers Brian Shaw over Derek Fisher but it doesn’t appear the Nuggets would allow Shaw, who just completed his first season as their coach, to interview with the Knicks.

Jackson is waiting on Fisher’s season to end with the Oklahoma City Thunder. That could occur later this week.

That Jackson was unable to recruit his buddy Kerr had to be an alarming development for Anthony, considering Jackson’s primary presence is to be a recruiter for the 2015 free-agent class.
