Carmelo Anthony talks Knicks return

On Friday, Anthony said he doesn't think the Knicks are considering trading him.

"When is the trade deadline? I don't think there's no way possible I'll be traded," he said. "I don't think they're even considering it.

"If they feel they want to get rid of me, we'd already have had that conversation. I don't think that. I know for a fact I'm not being traded, and I know for a fact I'm not going in there saying I want to be traded.''

He also reiterated that he'd like to retire as a Knick.

Anthony said Friday that his willingness to re-sign will depend on how the Knicks plan to build a winner around him.

"At the end of the season, [that] is the time that everything has to be laid out on the table, from both parties," he said. "If it's something that we can grow with, we can build on, we can compete at the highest level, then we're rolling."

Anthony added that he'd like to speak with the Knicks' front office after the season about its future plans.

"I haven't had any in-depth conversations with management about who I want to play with, what kind of team we should have. I've never had those conversations," he said. "That time is going to come. And when that time comes, everything will be laid out on the table. If they can counter that, then we have a long future ahead of us."
