Carmelo Anthony has expressed strong interest in returning to the Portland Trail Blazers, but is reportedly ready to return to the New York Knicks if the team deals with his close friend and Oklahoma City point guard Chris Paul.
Marc Berman of the New York Post provided the report:
“If point guard Chris Paul makes his way to the Knicks via a trade, sources said Anthony would probably want to follow him. Anthony and Paul are close friends and have dreamed of playing together on an NBA team.
“Both players were represented by Knicks president Leon Rose when he was basketball head of the Creative Artists Agency. A source said Rose is likely to have Anthony returning even without Paul.”
