Default Melo re-signing with Knicks

Carmelo Anthony has made it official.

Anthony announced Sunday morning below the headline "MY CITY, MY HEART" on his website, that he will be returning to the Knicks.

The seven-time All-Star also visited the Bulls, Lakers, Rockets and Mavericks since free agency opened on July 1, but Anthony wrote that his "heart never wavered" as he threw his full support behind team president Phil Jackson.

"I will always remember this chapter in my life. In the end, I am a New York Knick at heart," Anthony wrote. "I am looking forward to continue my career in Orange & Blue and to work with Phil Jackson, a champion who builds championship teams. Madison Square Garden is the mecca of basketball and I am surrounded by the greatest fans in the world."

-- NY Daily News

The Knicks can pay the All-Star forward nearly $130 million over five years, though Anthony has said he would be open to taking less than the maximum salary if it would help build a winning team. Anthony decided four summers ago he wanted a trade from Denver to New York, and the Nuggets were finally able to accommodate him in February 2011. Anthony, who was born in Brooklyn, wrote in his posting that at that time he had dreamed of coming back of New York.
