[Guide] Anthony publicly stated that he wants to become a free agent, which worried the Knicks executives. They have promised to pursue Love with all their strength in 2015, and
In order for Anthony to stay, the executives did not hesitate to sacrifice the interests of the team.
On November 13, , Knicks star Carmelo Anthony publicly stated in the summer that he wanted to become a free agent. It is not known whether he really wanted to leave New York, or revealed his dissatisfaction with the Knicks lineup.
But no matter what, the Knicks don’t want to lose the only core of the team, so they promised to chase Kevin Love in the summer of 2015.
Although the Knicks have the advantages of a large market and a maximum salary contract, they still try to ensure the depth of the team just in case.
When the Knicks acquired Anthony from the Denver Nuggets, they were fantasizing about the arrival of a championship, but now that several years have passed, the Knicks still have nothing to do.
And Anthony’s contract is about to expire again, and the current performance of the championship team built around him is also worrying. At least next year, they still cannot realize their original ideals, so they must extend their championship plan, and they need to continue to search for fresh players in the market.
And Kevin Love is the best choice.
Kevin Love’s contract ended in the summer of 2015. He can continue to choose to sign with the Timberwolves, but it seems that the Timberwolves have no hope of winning the championship in the next few years. Love will look for a bigger market for the championship
, and the Knicks are a good choice.
According to relevant sources, the Knicks will lose the three big contracts of Chandler, Stoudemire and Bargnani at that time, and go all out to chase Love.
There are still many teams in the league that have the same advantages as the Knicks, and the Los Angeles Lakers are one of them. The Lakers have long said that they will go all out to chase Anthony next summer.
Facing the eyes of the Lakers, the Knicks believed that waiting was not enough. In order to please Anthony, they did not hesitate to violate the team’s principles.
For example, they signed Smith’s younger brother in the summer. You must know that the team’s coaching staff thought that Smith’s talent could not even play in the NBDL, but because Anthony thought it was good, they would rather waste the team’s regular season spots.
Another team recruited Anthony’s personal trainer to the team.
The Timberwolves also know the attraction of being a star, so they are also preparing for the team. They believe that the team must make it to the playoffs, so that Love can see hope.
It is understood that the Timberwolves will trade Derek Williams and Sheved in exchange for more combative veterans.
