Knicks, Rockets re-engaged on Carmelo Anthony trade talks, still major hurdles

The New York Knicks and Houston Rockets have re-engaged on trade talks involving 10-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony, with the Rockets again canvassing third-team trade partners to construct a deal, according to league sources.

Anthony remains steadfast that he only plans to waive his no-trade clause for the Rockets and refuses to expand his list to include more possible destinations.

Nevertheless, no pathway has emerged for a deal directly between the two teams.
