After failing to agree on a trade, the Knicks and Houston Rockets are reportedly willing to allow the 10-time All-Star to begin training camp with his current team.
"Carmelo Anthony right now, those talks have been fairly dormant between Houston and New York," ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski said on SportsCenter. "They’ve tried to find third, fourth teams - the Rockets have - to help facilitate a deal with Carmelo Anthony. They haven’t been able to do that. And both sides are prepared for the fact that Melo may have to go to camp with the Knicks."
The two sides reportedly re-engaged in trade discussions earlier this month as Houston looked to include a third team.
The Rockets have tried to include power forward Ryan Anderson and his monster salary, but have been met with resistance from New York.
Anthony reportedly told the Knicks in July that he has no desire to return to the Big Apple for the 2017-18 campaign.
The 33-year-old averaged 22.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 0.8 steals on 43.3 percent shooting last season.
