Carmelo Anthony is optimistic about the prospects of a full training camp with Mike Woodson as the Knicks' coach.

“That’s big,” Anthony said. “I think coming into camp if you can have a group of guys that’s known for playing with each other, that’s been around guys, been around each other for a long period of time, you start building from there, you start getting used to each other.”

Anthony will help the Knicks recruit free agents this summer.

“When the front office asks me to call somebody, I’ll give them a shout” he said. “If I feel that somebody can help us, I’ll give him a shout.”
