Carmelo Anthony will opt out of his contract in June so he can become part of the 2014 class of free agents in July. There has been a lot of speculation about where he wants to play next season and Friday he may have ended all the talk. Anthony said he prefers to re-sign with the New York Knicks and he's willing to accept less than a max deal if it helps bring other talented players to the team, reports ESPNNewYork.com.
