GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - Carmelo Anthony says he wants to stay in New York, and he says he wants to win.
It is up to Phil Jackson to convince him that he can do both.
With the Knicks' season over and Anthony missing the playoffs for the first time in his career, he can begin thinking about his future. He says he will become a free agent in July and wants to be someplace where he can compete for championships.
The Knicks never came close this season, going 37-45. Anthony says he's unwilling to go through another losing season, which could force him to look elsewhere since New York will have trouble changing its roster next season.
He met with Jackson on Thursday, then said he's ''not at a point in my career where I want to rebuild.''
