NEW YORK (AP) — The wife of All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony says she thinks he will be back with the New York Knicks next season.
Anthony has said he intends to become a free agent this summer. The Knicks can give him an extra year and some $30 million more than any other team, but their 17-27 record has created speculation he would consider leaving the team.
Speaking on "Watch What Happens Live" on Bravo on Sunday night, La La Anthony said she "definitely" thinks Anthony will stay in New York. She said he wants to stay and she supports him "where ever he wants to go."
Anthony is averaging a team-high 27.2 points for New York, which acquired the Brooklyn native from Denver in a three-team trade in February 2011.
