Carmelo Anthony continues to count on the New York Knicks to fulfill their previously agreed upon mandate to trade him to the Houston Rockets.

Steve Mills and Scott Perry are pursuing a meeting with Anthony.

Anthony expects the Knicks to rebuild without him.

Over the past few weeks, Anthony has begun to prioritize a trade to the Rockets to join Chris Paul and James Harden over the Cavaliers and LeBron James. Houston is determined to trade for Anthony and believes he only has interest in playing for them next season.

Mills and Perry are evaluating whether it's worth allowing time for Anthony's standing around the NBA to be rebuilt.

Perry has history with Anthony and strong relationships with some in his inner circle.
