Recently Carmelo Anthony stated he wants “to retire in New York” and hopes to recruit players to join him in home state.
YouWager experts learned that in an interview before the Chicago Bulls’ 82-81 victory versus the Knicks, Anthony said he wants to remain with the New York franchise.
The Brooklyn native also said he wants to become a free agent when he can opt out of his contract next summer.
When asked about his comments after the Bulls game — in which he had 22 points, six rebounds, six assists and six steals — Anthony did not comment any further.
The 29 year-old star player has two years remaining on his contract but can opt out of the last NBA season, worth $23.3 million. Anthony can sign a five-year contract worth $129,135,806 if he choosesto stay with the Knicks York. If the 6x NBA All-Star wants to sign elsewhere, he can sign up to a $95,897,372 deal over four years.
