THE Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly turned down a trade proposal from the New York Knicks, who were hoping to acquire Kevin Love for Carmelo Anthony.
Two years and over $52 million remain in Anthony’s contract, and he has a no-trade clause, but the Knicks are apparently looking to find a deal that will entice him to waive that clause.
Teaming up with James could be tantalizing, but the Cavaliers are not interested in the proposal, according to ESPN.
LeBron James has called out Cavaliers management for a roster boost, and just a day ago launched a profanity-laced tirade on the team’s lack of depth.
But the MVP had been pointing out the need for a reliable playmaker, and the Cavaliers turned down the proposed swap of forwards.
The trade deadline is on Feb. 23.
