From Bleacher Report: “Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker was reportedly discussed in trade talks involving New York Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony.
On Tuesday, Ian Begley of ESPN.com noted it was unclear whether the Knicks or Bucks brought Parker into the conversation, but there was “no traction toward a deal.”
Anthony has spent the entire offseason in the rumor mill as New York weighed moving in a new direction with Kristaps Porzingis as the franchise cornerstone.
The no-trade clause in Melo’s contract has complicated the situation, though. Marc Berman of the New York Post reported in July that the dynamic offensive weapon was only interested in joining James Harden and Chris Paul with the Houston Rockets.”
