I was watching First Take, Stephen A Smith said due to the state of the Knicks (front office, management, coaching), LeBron has removed the Knicks off his list of free agent teams.
He also mention Melo will leave after the 2013-14 season and will maybe head to LA.

My question is, why risk the potential of this happening? Either trade Melo now or get a confirmation from him.

Teams that could use Carmelo Anthony

Atlanta Hawks
Charlotte Bobcats
Chicago Bulls
Cleveland Caviliers
Dallas Mavericks
Los Angeles Clippers
Los Angeles Lakers
Memphis Grizzlies
Minnesota Timberwolves
Milwaukee Bucks
New Orleans Pelicans
Phoenix Suns
Sacramento Kings
Washington Wizards
Utah Jazz

This is still Team Melo, but the best for Melo and the best for New York should be respected.
If the Knicks want to waste Melo's time and not build a roster or have a coach who will play guy's minutes who deserve it (Prigioni), then Melo would be better off on a team who could use his talents and Knicks would be better off getting as much value as they can for Melo because the Knicks need it. Our future is dark, no draft picks, not even much second round picks. Grunfield is a crap GM and gutted this roster out completely.
