Jackson says that a trade might be best for Carmelo, Knicks

For much of the 2016-17 season, the writing was on the wall that Carmelo Anthony's tenure with the New York Knicks was nearing an end. This comes shortly after NY finished up their third straight campaign with 50-plus losses, while compiling an 80-166 record all under Jackson's watch.

"I think the direction with our team is that he would be better off somewhere else". Although, Jackson's comments won't do the Knicks any favors when it comes to negotiations.

Steve Popper discusses the Knicks season and what it would take for Carmelo Anthony to return to the team next season.

In March, Porzingis said there was "a lot of stuff that's not clear" for Knicks players, adding that it's "hard to play like that". Per an ESPN report earlier today, Melo is "leaning strongly" towards waiving his no-trade clause.

Earlier in the day, Jackson, continuing his odd approach of alienating his team's stars, said Porzingis is too green to carry the Knicks.

"To be honest with you, I don't know". "You would want that person to come straightforward with you". He's shown that he's competitive, he's shown that he's got a sense of desire to win, etc. He made a good point, though, about teams looking to change things up after playoff losses. The Knicks tried to trade the forward this past season, with the most serious talks reportedly involving the Cavaliers, Clippers and Celtics. Anthony and Jackson have not seen eye to eye since Jackson's arrival in 2013 and the Knicks as a whole have not been the same.

Porzingis later liked Anthony's post on Instagram. That's what he does. Jackson said Friday that wasn't a criticism but "pure fact". "I've really focused on getting better as a player and once that time comes, I'm sure I'll be ready".

Phil Jackson's time as the President of Basketball Operations with the New York Knicks has been a major disappointment.

A distraught Kristaps Porzingis refused to meet with Phil Jackson and Steve Mills on Friday, according to a source.
