Should the Knicks Trade Melo? [POLL]
The Knicks are a disaster.
They’re old. They’re injured. Their coach is hanging on by a thread. Their reigning sixth man has the maturity of the Mean Girls cast. Their 7-footer just tore a ligament trying and failing to dunk.
And by all accounts, their superstar has one foot out the door.
Carmelo Anthony can opt out of his contract with the Knicks at the end of this season; most expect him to take the out and test the free agent market.
With that in mind, and with the Knicks looking more and more lost with each passing second, some have begun to ask whether the Knicks should trade the prolific scorer.
A case can certainly be made for yes. The team is going nowhere, they’re heading into one of the deeper drafts in NBA history with no picks, and the return for Carmelo Anthony would be significant – especially considering the likelihood of a Melo opt-out which would return the Knicks nothing.
With all that said, though, the Knicks are only four games out of a playoff spot and showed real, legitimate hope with a string brilliant play to start 2014.
So what say you? Should the Knicks trade Melo?
