Ask anyone outside the New York Knicks organization, and it’s almost a done deal that Carmelo Anthony opts-out and joins a (different) team in a better situation — in layman’s terms, he’ll sign with the Houston Rockets.
However, almost everyone inside the Knicks organization “feels” (or is hoping) that Melo will re-sign with the club. At least, that’s the indication that’s being given.
And for Amar’e Stoudemire, that’s no different. The former All-Star, or as he likes to call himself ‘STAT’, recently gave his two cents on Melo’s future — he thinks he stays.
Still, Stoudemire, like everyone else in New York, has an opinion on where Anthony may go in free agency this summer.
He thinks Carmelo’s going to remain a Knick, but he’s not 100 percent sure. “My gut feeling is that Carmelo will be staying,” Stoudemire said earlier this week on ESPN Radio’s “The Herd with Colin Cowherd.” “That’s my gut feeling right now today but I’m not totally sure.”
This isn’t exactly the type of quality answer that you’d like to hear from one of your “core” players, if you’re a Knicks fan. Then again, who knows if Stoudemire is going to be on the Knicks next season, anyways.
