Mike D'Antoni and Carmelo Anthony had a tumultuous working relationship when they were with the New York Knicks and appeared close to a reunion this offseason with the Houston Rockets.

The Rockets and Knicks were unable to execute a trade and Anthony was dealt to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

D'Antoni says he wouldn't have had an issue coaching Anthony again.

"Oh yeah. We all get a little bit, hopefully, better at what we do. And it's a whole different situation and we know that James (Harden) and Chris (Paul) are good friends (of Carmelo's) so it's a whole different thing," D'Antoni said Monday. "Actually after New York, we went to USA Basketball and we won a gold medal again so it's not like it's anything new."
