Phil Jackson still waiting to hear from Carmelo AnthonyPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the New York Post with a Thursday evening update on Knicks free agent Carmelo Anthony:
Knicks president Phil Jackson spoke with bravado in saying he expects a positive outcome will be reached with Carmelo Anthony, though he still has not heard officially from the superstar free agent.
Jackson said he expected an answer Thursday — but also expected one the previous two days and didn’t get a commitment. Jackson added he also has been in conversations with free-agent power forward Pau Gasol, selling him on New York.
“I felt really good about my conversation with Carmelo,’’ Jackson said during the Knicks summer league practice. “We really struck a chord the two of us and feel overly passionately about what we’re trying to get accomplished. It’s his ability to stay, be patient, lead and watch us develop a winner. There’s no instantaneous winner that we think is going to happen to the Knicks right now, but we’re going to be a lot better.’’
