Carmelo Anthony, who nearly jumped ship to join the Chicago Bulls in July, won’t have to wait long to see Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Tom Thibodeau again.

According to a source, the Knicks are tentatively scheduled to open the 2014-15 season at home against the Bulls. The News reported last month that the Knicks will play host to the Washington Wizards on Christmas Day.

NBA TV will announce the entire 2014-15 regular-season schedule during the network’s one-hour Schedule Release Special on Wednesday at 6 p.m.

It is believed that the defending NBA champion San Antonio Spurs will begin the season by facing LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers at home. James will also face the Miami Heat on Christmas Day.
