The future of Carmelo Anthony remains uncertain at this point. Many are still expecting him to waive the no-trade clause in his contract and leave the New York Knicks. Earlier in the offseason and until now, the Houston Rockets are favored to land him. He reportedly has the desire to join his fellow All-Stars James Harden and Chris Paul.

If it is true that Anthony wants to be in Houston, he has the support of Jim Boeheim who was his head coach in Syracuse. Boeheim and Anthony helped the Orange win the national championship in 2003. In a report by Zagsblog a couple of days ago, Boeheim said the Knicks and Anthony should part ways for them to "start over." He thinks that the Rockets "would be great" for the 33-year-old veteran.

According to Boeheim, with the Rockets, Anthony could play just like he did in the 2016 Rio Olympics where he succeeded as a spot-up shooter. It will be different from the Knicks who are using the triangle offense. Boeheim added that being in Houston is going to be easier for the 10-time All-Star.

Melo staying for KP

It is unknown why Anthony is still in New York even if it appears that he wants to go already. ESPN's Ian Begley reported recently a potential reason why there is no trade materializing. Begley stated that there are people in the NBA convinced that Kristaps Porzingis will benefit from playing with Anthony (or another No. 1 scorer) for one more season.

Perhaps the Knicks intend to have Anthony as Porzingis continues his development.

Once the 22-year-old shows that he can carry the team and take over in games, then that might be the time to get rid of the aging franchise star. Similar to several organizations in the league, the Knicks are focusing on youth as they begin the rebuilding process.

New face

In other Knicks news, a new point guard is coming to town as Jarrett Jack agreed to a one-year contract (non-guaranteed).

The 33-year-old last suited up for the New Orleans Pelicans. As of the moment, Jack's role in New York is undetermined. It is likely that he and Ramon Sessions will mentor younger playmakers Ron Baker, Frank Ntilikina, and Chasson Randle.

There are five players at No. 1 for the Knicks, which means one or two of them will get axed ahead of the 2017-18 season.

As of the moment, the ones who have a good chance of staying in New York are Baker, Ntilikina, and Sessions. On the depth chart provided by ESPN, they are the top three options for the Knicks at point guard. Baker, who was a backup in the previous season, is the projected starter.
