Carmelo Anthony is playing well and could be playing his way out of New York

Anthony makes $24.6 million this season and has $54 million remaining over the next two years of his contract.

He added that he "would have to consider" waiving his no-trade clause if the Knicks decide to blow things up, concluding: "All the talk that's going on right now, that's out of my control".

Anthony said as of Wednesday that he had no contact with the Knicks front office in more than a week.

The Atlanta Hawks, on the other hand, are reportedly looking to trade a number of their players.

"If that's the case, if that's where it's coming from, that side, I guess it's a conversation we should have, " Anthony said after the article came out. The 32-year-old all-star forward has made National Basketball Association headlines this month following an article on FanRag Sports by Phil Jackson's confidant, Charley Rosen. But that doesn't mean the New York Knicks are intent on keeping him.

Anthony has most of the power when it comes to staying in NY. "Sometimes, it's tough for me defensively against a big [center], but I think as I get stronger I'll be able to play the [center] more and have even more advantage playing from outside against a [center]". If the Knicks are made a decision to part ways with Anthony, the attention could move on to other teams. Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski and Chris Mannix, the Knicks wanted to gauge the interest of both the Celtics and the Los Angeles Clippers. It won't be easy to trade a contract of that ilk, but both the Celtics and Clippers could send pieces back to NY in order to make the contracts work.

Anthony and Jackson met in January, and he informed management he did not plan to waive his no-trade clause, according the Daily News.

After a promising 14-10 start, the Knicks have gone just 4-14 since Christmas, falling to 20-27 on the season. The latest incarnation of the Phil Jackson rebuilding project - a win-now dictate that included trading for Derrick Rose, signing Joakim Noah, Courtney Lee and Brandon Jennings - is ready to be discarded. Question now is, would Doc Rivers actually be willing to part ways with Blake Griffin, who you'd expect to be part of any blockbuster deal, in order to bring in a player like Melo.

Anthony holds a no-trade clause, which allows him to shoot down any potential trade. Yeah I know it is all a bit confusing trying to figure out what is going on in NY, but it looks like now the writing is on the wall for Anthony.

The Cavaliers are reportedly among his preferred landing spots along with the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers.
