Carmelo Anthony is seemingly tired of playing in New York, and the Knicks haven't been successful for a few years now. Anthony has been in the NBA for 14 years, but he has never won a championship ring, nor has he ever gone to the NBA finals. Out of all top players of 2003 NBA draft class, the Knicks forward had the least postseason success, and he wants to change it.

Recently, Anthony hinted at leaving New York, saying that he's missing out that he's not in the playoffs. LeBron James, who is a good friend of Carmelo, definitely doesn't miss being in the postseason, and he could bring Anthony to Cleveland.

Carmelo Anthony to Cleveland would be a win-win situation

Having Carmelo Anthony in Cleveland would benefit everyone. Anthony would finally find a playoff team, the Cavaliers would get another superstar, and the New York Knicks would get rid of the 32-year old superstar. Anthony's best years are far behind him, and it is very unlikely that he will be a great and deadly scorer once again. However, playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers alongside LeBron James would undoubtedly benefit the forward, and he could keep playing at a high level for at least three more years.

Cleveland Cavaliers could have a starting lineup that includes Kevin Love, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Kyrie Irving, which would definitely be one of the best lineups in the entire NBA, if not the best.

Anthony is not happy in New York, and the Knicks don't want him

It is not a secret that Carmelo Anthony doesn't like playing in New York anymore. The Knicks front office has done a lot of wrong moves lately, and they refuse to change some of their biggest flaws, which includes their offense. Anthony has publicly criticized the Knicks many times but to no avail.

If he did not have a no-trade clause in his contract, Anthony would have most likely been traded this season, but he refused any trade proposal the Knicks had.

Carmelo Anthony could be traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers this summer, and the Knicks probably wouldn't ask for too much in return. Now is probably the best time for both the Knicks and Anthony to move on and to find their success elsewhere.
