The New York Knicks enter the NBA offseason hoping to bring a star to Madison Square Garden. They could also be targeting a potential reunion with future Hall of Famer Carmelo Anthony.
The Knicks have already been connected to Russell Westbrook and Chris Paul, with president of basketball operations Leon Rose swinging for the fences in his first offseason. While acquiring a star point guard seems to be Rose’s top priority, he also might have a reunion in mind for the Knicks.
The Knicks targeted Anthony last offseason, before their pursuit of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant fell short. With Rose now in charge and looking to make a splash, rumors are already buzzing about Anthony’s potential return.
According to SportsNet New York’s Ian Begley, some within the Knicks organization already view Anthony as a free agency target. If the team acquires Paul or Westbrook, the odds of signing Anthony will spike significantly.
