Carmelo Anthony will be a free agent this offseason and was asked on Thursday how the New York Knicks' disappointing 13-14 season will factor into his decision.

"A lot of things are going to be thought about when that time comes," said Anthony. "Off the court, on the court, just a lot of things going to have to be put all on the table."

Anthony's preference appears to be to stay in New York, a city he and his family enjoy living in. The Knicks also can pay Anthony significantly more money than any other team. 

Anthony could potentially sign for less money while joining a team that has a better chance to compete for a title. The Knicks are hoping to re-sign Anthony with the idea that they will be able to improve the roster with cap space in 2015. Anthony will be 32 and in his 15 season to begin the 15-16 season.

Anthony, however, did say that whether or not the Knicks make the playoffs won't specifically impact the decision.
