Carmelo Anthony has until June 23 to notify the New York Knicks if he plans to opt in or out of the final season of his contract.
Phil Jackson is continuing to urge Anthony to pick up the option on the $23.3 million player option for next season. If Anthony chooses to become a free agent, the All-Star forward will consider the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks, according to sources.
The Knicks have pitched the idea to Anthony about adding a marquee free agent to pair with him in 2015.
The Knicks have reportedly mentioned LeBron James as a potential target.
