Carmelo Anthony unhappy with Knicks’ draft night

There are a lot of fans who weren’t happy with the New York Knicks’ moves at last night’s NBA Draft, but one important individual is particularly disgruntled.

According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, team star Carmelo Anthony was not a fan of the team drafting the fairly unknown Kristaps Porzingis with the fourth pick and then trading teammate Tim Hardaway Jr. to the Hawks for Jerian Grant.

Carmelo, according to source, called Tim Hardaway Jr. late Thursday to express his displeasure with Phil Jackson's draft night moves. Oh boy

Carmelo feels Phil needs to make moves that can help immediately. "He said, 'we have to wait three years for this guy?'" Knick source claims

Well, this is going to make things awkward around the office, isn’t it?

The fact of the matter is that as someone without an NBA championship ring, Anthony has ZERO place criticizing how the Knicks’ front office builds a team. He signed a max contract last summer knowing that the team wouldn’t be ready to compete immediately and would have to go through a rebuild, so his complaining could very well just be buyer’s remorse.

Considering how team president Phil Jackson has 11 rings as a coach and has put teams together before, Anthony should just enjoy his how much he’s earning through his contract, be quiet, and just play the game. In fact, Isola said it best once again.

Bottom line: Carmelo should have trusted his instincts in July & joined a contender. Phil should have trusted his instincts & let Melo walk

Hopefully, Anthony’s feelings will change once Jackson makes some moves in free agency next week, not to mention actually play on the court with the draft picks the team selected.

Either way, this isn’t the publicity that Anthony needs right now.
