NEW ORLEANS -- Carmelo Anthony said Friday he knows "for a fact" the Knicks wont trade him, and said he would be open to staying in New York for less than a maximum contract. wholesale nfl jerseys . Anthony has said he plans to become a free agent this summer. The NBAs trade deadline is Thursday, but Anthony ruled out any chance the Knicks would move him to avoid the possibility they could lose him for nothing in July. "I know for a fact Im not being traded," Anthony said at the NBAs All-Star weekend. "Theres two things: I know for a fact Im not being traded and Im not going in there and saying I want to be traded." New York can pay him around $30 million more than any team, but Anthony said he wouldnt insist on making the Knicks do it. "As far as the money, it dont really matter to me. If I go somewhere else I get paid, if I stay in New York I get paid," Anthony said. "So as far as the money goes, thats not my concern. My concern is being able to compete on a high level, at a championship level coming at this last stretch of my career." The Knicks arent doing it now. They are 20-32, one of the leagues biggest disappointments after winning the Atlantic Division last season, and are wasting a strong season by Anthony that has him ranked second in the league with 27.3 points per game while also averaging 8.6 rebounds. The Knicks need plenty more, and it will be tough to get because they are already so far over the salary cap. Not having to pay Anthony all of the more than $120 million he would be eligible for could help. "I talk to people all the time. I always say if it takes me taking a pay cut, Ill be the first one on Mr. Dolans step saying, Take my money, lets build something stronger," Anthony said, referring to Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan. Anthony was traded to New York just after the All-Star game three years ago and has reached the playoffs in each season. But they are currently out of the playoff picture even in the weak Eastern Conference, and Anthony will have to decide if he feels they can put a championship team around him as he approaches his 30th birthday. "He makes really good decisions and I feel this decision for him will be no different," said the Clippers Chris Paul, one of Anthonys closest friends in the league. "I know he loves it there. His family loves it there. Most of all, he loves to play basketball there. I dont know what his decision will be, but whatever he does, Ill support him 110 per cent." wholesale jerseys .

According to Yahoo! Sports, the team has reached a five-year deal to play their home games on the roof of the Plaza Hotel and Casino.FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Dorian Finney-Smith and Scottie Wilbekin werent about to let a little thing like injuries get in the way for Florida. The banged-up Gators, playing without leading scorer Casey Prather, overcame a host of ailments and earned an 84-82 overtime win at Arkansas on Saturday. They did so behind a career-high 22 points from Finney-Smith, starting in the place of Prather, as well as a timely jumper near the end of regulation from Wilbekin -- who scored nine points in overtime as Florida (13-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) completed its comeback. Prather, averaging 17 points, missed the game because of a bone bruise in his right knee, but he was hardly the only Gator affected by injuries. Wilbekin missed two days of practice this week with a sprained ankle, and centre Patric Young also missed time with a sore knee. Wilbekin finished with 18 points for Florida, and Michael Frazier had 15 and Young 10. Finney-Smith, starting for just the second time this season, added 15 rebounds -- including nine offensive -- while also connecting on three 3-pointers. "Youre going into this game not really knowing what youre going to get," Florida coach Billy Donovan said. "... I think the one guy we, at least I tried to instil just a belief and confidence was in (Finney-Smith). Just to go, be aggressive, play through mistakes." The Razorbacks (11-4, 0-2) had a chance to all but seal the win with 17.1 seconds remaining in regulation, but Alandise Harris missed the front end of a 1-and-1 to give Florida the ball back down 66-64. Wilbekin answered with the game-tying bank shot with 2 seconds left for the Gators, who then took control quickly in overtime while snapping Arkansas 23-game home winning streak. "It means a lot to us," Finney-Smith said. "It tells you about our team. We play for each other. Any given night, it can be someones night and tonight it was just me." Ky Madden led the Razorbacks with a career-high 23 poinnts, hitting 5 of 10 3-pointers. cheap jerseys from china. Coty Clarke added a season-high 16 points and 14 rebounds, but neither was enough for Arkansas -- which has lost two straight for the first time this season. "We just didnt finish the deal," Arkansas coach Mike Anderson said. "We had opportunities at the free-throw line. We had some open shots we didnt make. We had some open shots we didnt make. "... This one hurts. Why? Because we felt we played well enough (to win)." Finney-Smith had nine points at halftime, and he continued to have the hot hand in the second half and overtime -- where he scored five straight points to put the Gators up 77-69. Following a pair of baskets from Harris, who finished with 11 points, the Razorbacks closed the Florida lead to 82-79 with 21.9 seconds remaining in overtime. However, Harris missed an inside attempt and Wilbekin -- who had nine points in overtime -- sealed the win with free throws with 5.4 seconds remaining. Michael Qualls, who finished with 10 points, hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to pull Arkansas within 84-82. "(Harris) didnt make the play, but we also didnt make the plays and execute and win the game," Clarke said. "So, its not on him but us." The Gators took a 23-22 lead midway through the first half after a floater by Kasey Hill, but Arkansas -- which hadnt lost at home since a 91-82 defeat to Syracuse on Nov. 30, 2012 -- responded with a 10-2 run to take its largest lead of the half at 32-25. Clarke, who had 13 points in the first half, matched his career high with three 3-pointers, and he put the Razorbacks up 64-57 with a free throw. However, Florida closed out regulation on a 9-2 run to tie the game -- eventually winning it in overtime in Bud Walton Arena, where the Gators lost last season. "We didnt want anything less (than a win)," Wilbekin said. "Us four seniors, with this being our last game here, we wanted to go out with a win." ' ' '
