Kristaps Porzingis skips Knicks exit meetings amid frustration

  • Carmelo Anthony Might Be Ready To Waive His No-Trade Clause And Join A Winning Team

The Knicks finished 31-51 in their fourth straight season out of the playoffs, a streak that began one year before Jackson took over the franchise.

But losses are just the tip of the iceberg.

"I think he's excited from a leadership role to try to help guys that don't have that kind of experience, haven't been through it or are going through it for the first time, to try to help those guys", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said.

After Jackson's remarks, Anthony posted a message - presumably for Jackson - on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

He also granted Anthony a no-trade clause in that contract, but said he doesn't regret it. Outside of drafting Kristaps Porzingis and Willy Hernangomez in 2015, managing to re-sign Anthony in 2014 remains one of the few positive decisions of Jackson's tenure.

Porzingis siding with Anthony is bad news for the Knicks and Jackson. If he doesn't like the trade, he doesn't have to go. A tweet by Sports Illustrated showed that Porzingis liked Anthony's post. "I'm a very honest person and I know the business and I know the game and I know how it works".

NYC proposal would require Donald Trump to release tax returns
In March, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow reported that Trump paid $38 million in federal taxes, according to his 2005 1040 form. President Trump has repeatedly said an Internal Revenue Service audit prevents him from releasing his records.

The optics on this are awful for Jackson and the Knicks, who seemingly reduced Anthony's trade value by making it public that not only do they want to get rid of him, but that they feel they're unable to build a victor around him. Jackson said Anthony did not express a willingness to leave the Knicks but made it clear that he thought Anthony should consider accepting a trade to a team on the cusp of winning the title.

"I just said, 'We haven't won here, ' " Jackson said.

The 32-year-old 10-time All-Star Anthony admitted that he'd like to return to the Knicks, but would keep his ears open to any trade proposal that comes his way this offseason.

"I think there's disconnect sometimes with this team and I think there was some rebelliousness with this team that created some of the discord during the year".

"We had the opportunity to play with Derrick and see if he does have enough left in the tank. before we have to get into that [free] agent market again", Jackson shared with ESPN's Jackie MacMullan. I can't regret it. While Jackson was dusting off his Zen tactics and trying to sour fans on Anthony, what he did was turn that 50 percent who felt trading Carmelo was a good thing, they now saw Jackson as the devil. "Obviously, it hasn't worked out as a partnership". I can't go back and regret that.
