The Knicks could add another team to the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes.

Before the rumors that the Oklahoma City Thunder had jumped into the mix, there were only two teams considered to be in close consideration for Carmelo Anthony - the Rockets and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Bill Simmons, CEO at the Ringer and known for his inside scoop on numerous National Basketball Association rumours, tweeted earlier today that Adams" team was attempting to trade for the 10-time All Star after it was reported he said he was willing to waive his "no-trade' clause with NY to join them. He would be afforded that same opportunity in Oklahoma City with reigning MVP Russell Westbrook and three-time All-NBA honoree Paul George.

Simmons claims that the relationship between Thunder assistant general manager Troy Weaver and Anthony could help get a deal done.

Kyrie Irving remains the wild card.

Terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims 'reprehensible'
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti , seeing the public anger against the attack, said nobody can kill Kashmiriyat. On Monday, seven Amarnath Yatra pilgrims from Gujarat were killed in a terror attack in Anantnag district.

The New York Knicks have been given a list of preferred destinations by All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony.

It's doubtful that the Thunder would have the trade material sought by the Kicks, for starters, with Adams" "Stache Brother mate, Enes Kanter, their most obvious piece they would be willing to give up. Other than the ability to match up salaries and potentially get Anthony's blessing, the Thunder are far from an ideal trade partner for NY.

Oklahoma City doesn't necessarily have that much to offer the Knicks, which would make a deal unlikely unless a third and fourth team was introduced. James can become an unrestricted free agent next summer. "His camp is optimistic that a deal with the Rockets is going to happen".

The Thunder already made a huge splash this offseason, acquiring Paul George from the Indiana Pacers in exchange for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

But don't look for the Thunder to sacrifice Adams for what would be a major gamble in Anthony. Last season, the Thunder went 47-35 before being eliminated by the Rockets in the first round of the playoffs.
