• New York Knicks like Carmelo Anthony chances, eye Pau Gasol

    Summary of 19 articles · Updated Jul 3, 2014
    However, Gasol may have to wait until free-agent forwards Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James make their decisions, as many of the teams with an interest in Gasol also have an interest in Anthony and James. If the team can add to its roster with Carmelo Anthony, sources said, Gasol would be far more inclined to re-sign with the Lakers. They also placed a call to the agent for Miami forward LeBron James and their own free agent center Pau Gasol within the first hour of the negotiating period. A day after being one of the first teams to contact Pau Gasol when the NBA's free-agency frenzy officially opened up, the Los Angeles Lakers continued to show the two-time champion their strong interest in retaining him with an in-person meeting, a league source told ESPNLosAngeles.com. Sources told ESPN.com that Knicks officials, while not willing to trumpet it publicly with free agency fast approaching, are quietly confident about their odds of retaining Anthony thanks in part to the idea that new team president Phil Jackson and the high-scoring forward have "connected" to some degree. Of course it will continue to be ironic especially for someone with as evolved a sense of irony as Phil does that an executive who just scored the max deal of all time for executives should be telling a star player to take something less than one, for the good of the team.
