Carmelo Anthony said on Wednesday morning that he expects to be playing for the New York Knicks after the Feb. 23 trade deadline.

"I never thought I would be anywhere else," he said.

The Knicks have talked to at least three teams about potential deals involving Anthony this season.

Anthony has a no-trade clause and would have to agree to waive that clause before a trade could be completed. He reiterated on Wednesday that he hasn't thought about waiving his no-trade clause because management has yet to approach him with any potential destinations. He also said he hasn't told the Knicks that he won't waive the no-trade clause, seemingly keeping his options open eight days before the trade deadline.
