Carmelo Anthony Trade Now Inevitable Based On Phil Jackson's Comments

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

Phil Jackson made it clear he's ready to move on from Carmelo Anthony on Friday, but the way he's handled the situation isn't sitting well with the future star of the Knicks' franchise. NY went 31-51, falling well short of preseason expectations bolstered by the team's offseason additions of Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah.

"We've not been able to win with him on the court at this time", Jackson said, shortly before insisting that he has not been critical. Earlier this year, Anthony told Jackson that he wanted to remain with the Knicks. Jackson said Anthony gave the Knicks a list of teams he'd agree to waive his no-trade clause for prior to the deadline in February, and described the market at that time as such: "We had some teams that were interested in making the chase". They made the playoffs each of his first three years with the team, including a 54-win season in 2012-13.

Anthony told Jackson past year that he wanted to stay with the Knicks.

Russian Federation on 'wrong side' of Syria argument, Theresa May says
Shortly after, under pressure from the West, Syria agreed to a Russian proposal to give up control of its chemical weapons. Assad denied having chemical weapons and said Syria would only allow an "impartial" investigation into the incident.

In New York, there's only dysfunction as Jackson is allowed free reign by owner James Dolan.

The best compliment he could muster for Anthony was, "He held it together pretty well with all the drama".

League sources told ESPN that Porzingis was particularly frustrated with the lack of direction in the Knicks for the season, which led to the team's preseason hopes of being a contender ending up as a flop as they faltered with a 30-51 record. Once this materializes, Jackson just needs to find a business partner willing to accept Anthony.

If a judge rules in Waymo's favor, Uber would have to stop using anything that Waymo included in a list of trade secrets. Uber has claimed that its self-driving technology is unique and distinct from what Alphabet has created.

"We faced resistance and we faced resistance at the top", Jackson said. Outside of drafting Kristaps Porzingis and Willy Hernangomez in 2015, managing to re-sign Anthony in 2014 remains one of the few positive decisions of Jackson's tenure. "You don't want to end your career not winning, this is not something you want to have labeled on your career", Jackson said.

Porzingis later liked Anthony's post on Instagram. I think he had some concern this year about physical. Anthony and Rose probably will be gone next season and Joakim Noah will be coming off knee surgery at least.

It appears that Jackson meant good with his statement but Anthony might have understood it differently. "But at this point, it's all on me", Anthony said.

Real Madrid Reportedly Intrested In Chelsea's N'Golo Kante
He has scored 13 goals in the league this far this campaign and is just four behind club's top scorer Diego Costa. But Kante, 26, had choices, for example, probability of signing with Chelsea's London rivals Arsenal.

As for Jackson, he painted a picture that's rosier than reality, saying the Knicks are building a foundation and that fans see progress.
