Carmelo Anthony has already begun recruiting future free agents to New York, but the biggest one of them all has reportedly already ruled the Knicks out.
Kevin Durant, who has been linked to the Warriors, Lakers, Wizards and even the Grizzlies is said to have no interest in taking his talents to the Big Apple this summer. Originally, New York was mentioned as one of the teams that Durant could have joined because of Phil Jackson’s successful history with stars, the prospect of playing alongside Melo and the market itself. Via NY Daily News:
