The Carmelo Anthony saga deepens, with new rumors that DeMarcus Cousins could be recruiting his friend to join the New Orleans Pelicans.
It may be a very difficult task.
It remains very much up in the air where Anthony will be playing next season. It seems apparent that the New York Knicks are ready to move on, and Anthony is as well after an extended falling out with the team’s front office management. The Knicks were deep in trade talks with the Houston Rockets and appeared to be at the goal line last month, but the trade fell apart at the last minute and Anthony remains, at least for now, a member of the New York Knicks.
There may now be a new team in the mix. This week, DeMarcus Cousins clicked “like” on an Instagram picture posted by a Pelicans fan account showing Cousins and Anthony at a practice for the U.S. Men’s Basketball team.
