Knicks, Melo Agree to Not Discuss Contract

knicks_heat_carmelo_anthony_2013Anthony, Knicks agree to not discuss contract during season — Prepare to be disappointed if you’re rooting for another bout of ‘Melo-drama surrounding Knicks star Carmelo Anthony and his future. Anthony, who put the Denver Nuggets through some ups and downs during the 2010-11 season as his pending free agency hung in the balance, has an agreement in place with New York’s GM to not talk about his contract, writes Marc Berman of the New York Post:

Knicks general manager Steve Mills, despite the sudden dismissal of Glen Grunwald four days before training camp, said there still are the highest of expectations from ownership.

“In terms of an edict, we try to win every year,’’ Mills said before the Knicks’ 90-83 season-opening win over the Bucks Wednesday at the Garden. “Our goal is to try to win the championship and be as competitive as we can possibly be.’’

Earlier in the day, ESPN reported Dolan told his coaches he “expects’’ to win it all despite removing the man who built the roster.
