The New York Knicks are active ahead of the trade deadline and Carmelo Anthony anticipates being consulted in the process.
“I’m pretty sure they would bring it to me,’’ Anthony said at the morning shootaround Tuesday. “They would keep me up to date on what’s going on. As far as making decisions, that’s their job. I’m pretty sure they will keep me informed. What’s about to happen and what’s going to happen.”
The Knicks plan on not acquiring a player that has a contract that would take up cap space in 2015. The Knicks want to sell Anthony on the prospect of adding a second superstar such as Kevin Love in 2015.
“It’s Tuesday, and I haven’t heard anything as far as trades,’’ Anthony said. “As far as today, nothing’s happening. I haven’t heard anything. We’re planning on moving forward.’’

The New York Knicks are attempting to resume trade talks with the Toronto Raptors on Kyle Lowry, according to sources.
The Knicks are offering packages including Iman Shumpert, Raymond Felton and Beno Udrih, sources say.
New York is reluctant to include Tim Hardaway Jr. or a future first round pick. The Raptors almost certainly will require one of those two assets to trade Lowry directly to the Knicks.
"It comes down to, can they talk themselves into getting rid of a first-rounder or Hardaway Jr. for Lowry," one league source said.
League sources say a three-team deal has also been discussed in which Jeff Teague would end up with the Raptors, while Shumpert gets routed to the Atlanta Hawks and Lowry to the Knicks. Another trade scenario has the Knicks acquiring Teague. Those conversations have only been preliminary.

The New York Knicks are interested in upgrading the point guard position ahead of the deadline.
The Knicks were close to a trade for Kyle Lowry in December before talks fell apart.
The Knicks are now said to be interested in Jeff Teague of the Atlanta Hawks.
Teague signed a four-year, $32 million offer sheet with the Milwaukee Bucks in the offseason, which was matched by the Hawks. Teague would have to approve the trade and he would also take away the Knicks' wish for max cap space in 2015.

Carmelo Anthony doesn't believe the New York Knicks will trade him before the deadline.
Anthony will be a free agent this offseason, but appears to be keeping his options open.

If they feel like they wanted to get rid of me, then I think we would have already had that conversation. Like I said, I know for a fact I’m not getting traded.”
