So apparently these are a thing now.
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."

Re Melo: Source says "no decision yet." Teams pursuing him have not received definitive word. @FisolaNYDN reporting Melo is returning to NY.
So it seems like the Lebron to Cle is picking up steam, which means I even more strongly think that Wiggins for Love is going to happen. What other parts are needed to fill out the deal? Minnesota should force the Cavs to take on Martin's salary, which means Varejao plus one of Bennett, Thompson, Waiters, plus any draft picks. Which one would the Wolves want?
That Isola report is saying "he's coming back to the Knicks unless he isn't" - it's super useless.

Cavaliers are pursuing a Kevin Love trade with Minnesota, contingent on the signing of LeBron James, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.
I'm still pretty sure that doesn't provide the Cavs (or anyone they trade Haywood to) any salary relief this year. Only if he's traded next offseason. He's still only worth $2.2M in a trade this offseason.
Agreed. For many other teams, he probably isn't worth the money he's being offered, but for the Jazz he's the best player they have a chance at signing, so there's not a better use of their cap space. Last year they paid big money for the ghost of Richard Jefferson and the rotting corpse of Andris Beidrins just to clear the cap floor.
I also think last years drop in his percentages will improve. He was being forced to create way more offense than he's capable of. He was better when the Jazz had Millsap and Big Al to shoulder some of the scoring load, so if Exum turns out to be the real deal or if any of the Kanter/Favors/Burke/Burks group takes a step forward, Hayward could return to previous form. It's obviously nowhere near a lock that any of that is going to happen of course, but all those guys are young enough that I don't think it's an extreme longshot, either.
And Quin Snyder can't possibly be as incompetant as Tyrone Corbin, so there's that, too.

Even with the expected Gordon Hayward resigning, the jazz would be two million UNDER the salary cap floor
Final, official Nets luxury tax payment from last season according to sources: $90.57 million.
Factoring that in, the 2013-14 total Nets payout should come in right around $193.5 million in combined payroll and luxury tax commitments.
Waiters (might want to flip for 3D guy)
Whatever the result of all this, there will be an element of collective schadenfreude for whomever James spurns. Either he screws over Riley and Miami fans or he masterfully trolls Gilbert. It's a no lose situation!
