Vardon added that the Cavaliers can go above the salary cap to sign Korver due to the fact that they traded for him last season.
The 36-year-old sharpshooter shot an NBA-best 45.1 percent from beyond the arc last season, while averaging 10.1 points per game.
With regard to Anthony, the Knicks reportedly would rather trade him to get assets in return rather than buying him out, per Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.
ESPN's Stephen A. Smith said on Mike & Mike (h/t Ryne Nelson of Slam Online) that the Cavaliers are the only team Melo would accept a buyout to join.

Anthony and LeBron James are close friends, and by joining James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, Melo would give the Cavaliers a "Big Four" that could potentially better compete with the Golden State Warriors.
While the 33-year-old Anthony's production has dipped a bit over the past two seasons, he still averaged 22.4 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game in 2016-17, and he has made the All-Star Game in 10 of the past 11 seasons.
Even if Anthony would be willing to waive his no-trade clause for the Cavs, it is unlikely Cleveland would have the assets needed to get a deal done.
Also, with the Cavaliers in search of a general manager to replace David Griffin and the Knicks looking for a team president to take over for Phil Jackson, there is a great deal of uncertainty in both front offices.
