Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Denver Nuggets all star forward Carmelo Anthony would like the Nuggets to trade him to one of two big market eastern conference teams.
Carmelo Anthony still hopes to persuade the Denver Nuggets to trade him, preferably to either the Chicago Bulls or New York Knicks, an NBA source with knowledge of Anthony's wishes told Yahoo! Sports.
New York officials would like to make a run at signing Anthony next summer if he were to opt to become a free agent. The Knicks will have salary-cap room with Eddy Curry's(notes) contract expiring after the season.
Anthony is one of the top 10 players in the NBA and would re-shape the face of the Knicks or any NBA team, should he actually be traded.
