New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony said he doesn't understand management's vision for the future after the club's inactivity at Thursday's trade deadline.

"No, not now. No, to be honest with you," Anthony said late Thursday night. "I think they were kind of planning on the trade deadline, whether they were trying to make moves. I think that was one plan. Now they've got to get back to the drawing board and come up with another plan about the future of this team."

The Knicks discussed a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves centered on Derrick Rose and Ricky Rubio, but the Timberwolves ultimately balked at making the deal shortly before the deadline, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. The Knicks also discussed a deal involving shooting guard Courtney Lee with the LA Clippers, but nothing came to fruition.

Anthony said he had "no reaction" to the team's lack of moves but acknowledged that it is frustrating to be unsure of the approach that management, namely team president Phil Jackson, will take with the team at this point.
