Leon Rose, agent for Carmelo Anthony, met with Steve Mills and Allan Houston before the New York Knicks' 110-108 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Monday.

Anthony had a strong game, scoring 44 points in the loss.

The Knicks have a $90 million payroll, but are struggling to even reach the playoffs in a weakened Eastern Conference.

Anthony will be a free agent this offseason, but the Knicks remain confident he will re-sign.
