Another team may be ready to jump into the fray for Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony.
The 10-time All-Star has been the subject of NBA trade rumors for what feels like the last decade. Just this offseason, Anthony has been linked to the Rockets, Trail Blazers and Cavs in light of Kyrie Irving’s trade request. Now, the Thunder could crash the Carmelo party.
I understand it’s a business, but if I don’t hear anything from (Pelicans general manager) Dell (Demps) or my agent, I don’t pay attention to it, Davis said. Once I first heard (the rumors), then I heard it again, then I heard it again, I just wanted to make sure.
I found out it wasn’t (true), and that was the beginning of the summer, so I haven’t paid attention to it since.
Davis will get his first chance to team up with newly acquired DeMarcus Cousins for a full season starting in November. He also shed some light on his practice habits this summer noting he was working with teammates Cousins and Jrue Holiday.
Anthony Davis explaining why he doesn’t work out with players from other #NBA teams: Why would you? They’ll know what you’re going to do.
Davis would love to make a super team with Cousins, but he’s not going to go out and work out with opponents like LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, who often train together in the offseason.
Most guys don’t have the courage to do what he did. That’s not ‘youth’ and ‘ignorance.’ That’s a little bit more courage than people give him credit for.
