Melo doesn't get enough credit for being unselfish (1:40)

It seems unlikely at this point that Kyrie Irving will land in New York. Here's why: Carmelo Anthony's top choice in any trade, as of late Tuesday night, is to end up with the Houston Rockets, per league sources. Basically, nothing has changed since ESPN's Adrian Wojanarowski reported over a week ago that Anthony still expected the Knicks to carry out their previous plans to trade him to Houston. So Anthony has prioritized Houston over Cleveland and the Knicks, at the moment, are unwilling to include Kristaps Porzingis in a trade for Irving. So unless things change, Irving-to-New York is a long shot.

New Knicks GM not conceding a Melo trade (1:52)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

The Knicks, obviously, have strong interest in Kyrie Irving (just like 29 other teams) but I'm told people in the Knicks front office would not be willing at this point to include Kristaps Porzingis in a trade. Some with the organization would be willing to include future first-round picks and Carmelo Anthony in a deal for Irving, per league sources.
