Carmelo Anthony to recruit looming free agents during All-Star weekend
Joakim Noah recruited Carmelo Anthony during All-Star weekend last year.
Melo turned down the Bulls to re-sign with the Knicks, but he learned how to persuade free agents.
Even as New York struggles this season, Melo believes he can lure players to the Knicks – and he’ll use All-Star weekend in New York to build his case.
Melo wouldn’t name his targets, but several All-Stars can become free agents this summer:
- Marc Gasol
- LaMarcus Aldridge
- Paul Millsap
- Tim Duncan
- Jimmy Butler (restricted)
- LeBron James (player option)
- Dwyane Wade (player option)
The Knicks will probably try to hurriedly add talent, and any of these players would be tremendous gets. New York’s chances might be slim with any of them, but it’s worth a shot.
