The New York Knicks and Houston Rockets have expanded the scope of a possible Carmelo Anthony trade to include four-team scenarios, league sources told ESPN.
No deal was imminent Wednesday, but the Knicks and Rockets are confident that they have a willing third-team trade partner, the sources said.
Hardaway: Definitely want Melo back on Knicks
Tim Hardaway Jr., who was reintroduced to New York on Monday, says that he hopes Carmelo Anthony returns to the Knicks.
The fourth team was needed to move a particular player contract that neither the Knicks nor Rockets could or would accept in the deal, league sources said.
Anthony, 33, has two years and $54 million left on his contract.
The complexity of including multiple teams and assets in a deal creates time-consuming challenges, and there’s no guarantee that a deal can be reached.
Nevertheless, New York has been pushing hard to unload Anthony in recent weeks, although it hasn’t necessarily changed an asking price that makes the deal a challenge for Houston, league sources said.
