The New York Knicks agreed with Carmelo Anthony about not discussing the forward's contract situation during the season.

“Carmelo and I, the first day of training camp, we both agreed we wouldn’t have any more conversations about his ability to opt out or us negotiating an extension,’’ Steve Mills said. “I’ll stick to what I had agreed to and not talk about his contract status.’’

Mills was hired partly to ensure Anthony will stay beyond this season.

Mills has a strong relationship with CAA, which represents Anthony.
