July 14 (The Sports Xchange) - The New York Knicks now appear to be pausing trade talks involving 10-time NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony.

After talking with the Houston Rockets and Cleveland Cavaliers over the past month about a possible deal for Anthony, the Knicks told both teams they are stepping back from trade talks for a short time, according to the report.
