The Knicks wanted to trade Carmelo Anthony to the Cavs, according to ESPN.com.
The report claims New York was trying to ship Anthony in a one-on-one player swap involving Kevin Love. The Cavs apparently weren’t interested in the deal at all, and so talks came a stop. Both players are All-Star forwards, but Love is four years younger at 28.
There’s also this bit from Marc Stein of ESPN: Cleveland is not prepared to surrender Love to get Anthony after the role Love played in helping the Cavaliers win the first championship in franchise history in June.
