Kenyon Martin says Melo shouldn’t relinquish no-trade clause

With a difference of a mysterious amicable media response, Carmelo Anthony has remained wordless given Phil Jackson publicly summarized what we’ve famous for a while: a group boss has no use for his star player, and a Knicks will try to trade him ASAP.

Of course, this won’t be a run-of-the-mill trade traffic since Anthony binds some-more energy than a immeasurable infancy of his colleagues. And one of his good friends believes Anthony should reason on to that no-trade clause, no matter how most vigour Jackson applies.

“It’s hapless that it has come to this. But if I’m Melo, I’m not waiving my no-trade clause,” Kenyon Martin, who played with Anthony for a total 9 seasons in Denver and New York, pronounced Monday on ESPN’s ‘The Jump’ with horde Rachel Nichols. “I’m not waiving it. I’m going to make James Dolan make a decision, me or Phil? Make a decision. And if we do go somewhere, it’s going to be on my terms. Phil Jackson is going to have no contend in it.”

Dolan, it should be noted, is not going to glow Jackson, not after only opting into dual some-more years of a contract profitable a 71-year-old roughly $12 million per. But a some-more picturesque options that Martin is suggesting – and these are terrible for a Knicks – are similar to buyout with Anthony or trade him for pennies on a dollar since he’s digging in his heels with a no-trade clause.

It’s because a energy lies with Anthony.

“I’d adore to see him go to Portland or Washington,” Martin said.
