Isola: Carmelo Anthony will announce his return to the Knicks

Christian Petersen

Nothing's done. Nothing's official until Thursday.

This is neither full nor decisive, and nothing can be made official until Thursday, but here you go:

Carmelo Anthony is prepared to spend the prime years of his career in New York, the Daily News has learned.

A person close to Anthony told The News on Wednesday that barring a last minute change of heart Anthony will re-sign with the Knicks after "agonizing over this" for the past week.

"He will have something for everybody on Thursday," said the friend who was with Anthony before Anthony's scheduled workout with Kevin Durant and Kevin Love in Los Angeles on Wednesday. "He is really torn because this is the biggest decision of his career. But he wants to get it done in New York. He told me he believes in Phil."

Isola says "the deal on the table" is the full max of $129 million. Woj says some other strange, fairly negative things as well:

That, I imagine, is a response to everyone assuming Melo would wait for LeBron James to make his decision. This-- a friend of Melo's telling Isola something will happen "barring a last minute change of heart"-- is not done, nor would I assume the full max just yet.. More as it comes.
