TORONTO — Carmelo Anthony says he has no plans to leave New York and is angry about a report linking him to trade talks.
The Daily News of New York reported Friday that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics had discussed a deal involving Kevin Love and there were “very preliminary discussions” with the Knicks about expanding it to include Anthony, who would end up with LeBron James in Cleveland.
But Anthony has a no-trade clause and told SiriusXM NBA Radio on Saturday that he’s “not going nowhere.”
During his interviews after practice for the All-Star Game, Anthony added that he’s had no conversations with the Knicks or anyone else about leaving the team.
James added that the reports were “false,” saying the Cavaliers weren’t worried about trade talks.
