Knicks president Phil Jackson believes the addition of Derrick Rose will be "reinvigorating" for Carmelo Anthony. Anthony expressed concern over the direction of the franchise after the season, wondering whether the Knicks planned to compete in the near future or undergo a long-term rebuild. Jackson intimated Thursday that the Rose trade gives Anthony confidence about the club's future. "We've talked about that a little bit. 'Are we moving fast enough to accomplish goals that you have for yourself and your career?' Melo and I have talked about that: whether we're on the right time frame with him, is he disappointed or whatever? I think this is a positive move," Jackson said. "He sees that as a positive move. I think that's reinvigorating for him. I think it's good."
