Carmelo Anthony: 'I am looking forward to continue my career in Orange and Blue'
Anthony said in the statement that it was his dream a few years ago to play in his birthplace of New York City but recently decided to explore all the options available to him at this "pivotal juncture of my career" because he "owed it to myself and my family."
"In the end, I am a New York Knick at heart. I am looking forward to continue my career in Orange & Blue and to work with Phil Jackson, a champion who builds championship teams. Madison Square Garden is the mecca of basketball and I am surrounded by the greatest fans in the world."
