Jackson, the team president, reminded us he has three draft picks this year, but recent history suggests the Knicks would be lucky to get one decent player out of the bunch. The Knicks are a disaster right now.
But given the elements, this figures to be a complicated and acrimonious negotiation process.
This season has been a tumultuous one for the Knicks.
Aside from Anthony, Rose may be leaving NY this year.
Jackson added that his meeting with Anthony was "cordial".
"He enjoyed playing here even with the losses, which of course surprises us because he's been on some very successful teams", Jackson said. The Clippers and Cavaliers are two of the teams the Knicks spoke to before the deadline.
Jackson also said he needs to do a better job of "mentoring" next year and mentioned overseeing "game plans" and being more vocal at practices. They haven't been back to the postseason since, so Anthony knows his route to a ring might be elsewhere.
The Knicks seem to be pushing Anthony to waive his no-trade clause by presenting a better option to chase a title.

The shot completely surprised Price and the puck beat him over the shoulder to give the Rangers an early 1-0 lead in Game One. This year the Canadiens beat NY in all three meetings, so I think the home team should be a much more sizeable favorite.

T and his pro partner Kym Herjavec were emotional throughout their week of rehearsals as their pre-dance video package revealed. Goodman complained he didn't see much rumba, but Tonioli called her her a rumba dominatrix and a diva in overdrive.
"Some teams called that weren't [acceptable] to Melo and his group", Jackson said. Some teams called that were but weren't willing to give up core groups or members of their team - which is understandable at that time of year.
"We faced resistance and we faced resistance at the top", Jackson said. This is what we want to play and do. Jackson hopes these offers increase after the playoffs.
Phil Jackson doesn't shy away from saying what's on his mind but this may not necessarily always be a good thing.
Thought to be playoff contenders when the season began, the Knicks managed to be bad enough to make the lottery, but not bad enough to excite anyone about their potential position for the upcoming National Basketball Association draft.
Phil Jackson pulled no punches in his first media appearance since September. Phil Jackson hasn't shown he can build one. It would promote further chaos and dysfunction, piling on the madness that prompted Kristaps Porzingis to boycott his exit interviews. The relationship between Anthony and Jackson has been strained and it's better for all parties involved to part ways and move on. But Anthony was eager to hear directly from Jackson.
"I (told Carmelo) we haven't won here".
- Jackson said Derrick Rose, whose first season with the Knicks ended with him needing surgery to fix torn knee cartilage, told him he wants to return as a free agent "to have a chance to redeem himself as a player". You want to get to that territory where you have a chance to win.
After Jackson's remarks, Anthony posted a message - presumably for Jackson - on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
"I didn't come here particularly to win a championship but to do things that were directed by my instructions from Dolan", Jackson said Friday. But we've seen this dance before.
