With the recent report that the New York Knicks will let Carmelo Anthony build his team in 2015, NBA fans now wonder: Who are the top candidates?
Hoopsworld's Steve Kuyler explained how the Knicks plan to empower 'Melo in the future:
On the Anthony front, there is a chance he looks at greener pastures in 2014, but sources close to the process say the Knicks have already let Anthony know that their books will be basically clear in 2015 and he can pick his teammates much as Wade did in Miami.
There's a group of attractive unrestricted free agents who will be looking for a home in 2015, and a couple of them might be the kind of guys Carmelo would love to team up with. A few restricted free agents also have a chance to get paired with Anthony.
We looked ahead to the climate of the NBA two years from now and found a group of the most attractive stars who could realistically be on the Knicks' wish list.
