Knicks working on deal to move 'Melo — NBA notes

Earlier this week, the Daily News reported the trade between Houston and the Knicks was "at the two yard line".

He also made a crack that he would never shoot a midrange shot again since the Rockets rely heavily on the 3-pointer.

The Rockets signed Harden to the extension despite his disappearing act in the Rockets season-ending playoff series against the San Antonio Spurs.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of, Anthony remains confident that the Knicks will honor the franchise's goal of rebuilding without him and work on a trade with the Rockets.

Asked Saturday how it felt to have the league's top contract Harden replied, "It's cool". Along with Beverley, Sam Dekker and Montrezl Harrell are among the group shipped to Los Angeles.

NEW YORK - A person with knowledge of the details says the New York Knicks have promoted Steve Mills to president and hired Scott Perry as general manager.

"I don't think anybody's ever seen anything like this before", Harden said of his partnership with Paul. Anderson makes $61 million over the next three seasons.

Jackson has been shipped back to Montana to size up lovely views from his lake house.

Reports suggest that Anthony, who has a no-trade clause, will approve a trade to the Rockets or the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Both will have to evolve. Perry has been in the front office of four franchises, including the Pistons for many years, winning a title there in 2004. Anthony is 33 and still has two years and $54 million remaining on his contract, and teams have been hesitant to engage New York on talks knowing Anthony could block a deal. "Two guys that can create and facilitate and do things with the ball that nobody's done from the (point guard) and shooting guard position". Udoh was the No. 6 overall NBA pick in 2010.

Coaches and executives are not allowed to talk about players who are under contract with other teams.

The Rockets had every right to lock up their point guard, who averaged a double-double this past season to the tune of 29.1 points and 11.2 assists per game.

With the effort it took to convince Anthony to leave, it's hard to imagine the process behind persuading him of the opposite.
