Carmelo Anthony trade rumors have been actively swirling in the midst of free agency, as the New York Knicks want a resolution before next season begins. Most recently, it was reported that Anthony would waive his no-trade clause if he was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers or Houston Rockets.

While a trade to the Rockets has reportedly stalled because the Knicks are unwilling to take Ryan Anderson, the Cavaliers are very much in the hunt for Anthony. It’s unclear what the Cavaliers would offer the Knicks in exchange for the 10-time All-Star, but Kevin Love would most likely be part of the deal.

Is Carmelo Anthony going to meet with LeBron?

However, while the Knicks and Cavaliers have yet to engage in serious trade discussions, Anthony may be stirring the pot with his latest trip to Cabo. Carmelo is reportedly going to Cabo to potentially meet with LeBron James. What could this mean? Perhaps a trade is forthcoming. Perhaps Anthony wants reassurance that James will remain in Cleveland long-term before agreeing to waive his no-trade clause. In the words of the great Kevin Garnett, anything is possible.

We can sit around and speculate all day long, but we won’t know anything until the two superstars complete their trip. Maybe they just want to hang out as friends. After all, Anthony is part of the “Banana Boat” crew with James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Paul.

Still, it's hard to imagine the two superstars hanging out together and not talking shop.

The possibility of Anthony and James teaming up is becoming more and more likely. All signs are pointing to the two playing alongside one another. There may be a reason why the Cavaliers have been so passive during free agency, doing nothing except signing Jose Calderon.

Can the Cavaliers get rid of some of their role players to create cap room?

They are still probably looking for trade partners that would be willing to take Iman Shumpert to create cap space, but its been difficult attempting to dump his salary. The Rockets were the last team to express interest in the veteran swingman, but trade talks didn’t gain traction.

Anthony trade rumors have been alive since the deadline, and many are wondering when the Knicks will pull the trigger. The Knicks have been determined to trade Carmelo, but what’s made it tough on them is Anthony’s no-trade clause and huge contract. Fortunately for both sides, a trade could happen very soon, possibly before August.
