Carmelo Anthony's agent Leon Rose announced that his client has officially opted out of the final year of his contract with the New York Knicks on Monday and will test free agency this summer. Per ESPN
"Carmelo loves being a Knick, he loves the city, and he loves the fans," Rose said. "At this stage of his career, he just wants to explore his options."
Anthony can sign a maximum contract worth $129 million over five years with the Knicks. He can sign a maximum deal worth $96 million over four years with another team.
He has discussed the possibility of accepting less than a max contract to help the team that he signs with attract additional free agents. Anthony would consider signing with the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets or Dallas Mavericks, sources say.
Where do you think Melo will end up in next year?
