July 14 (The Sports Xchange) - The New York Knicks now appear to be pausing trade talks involving 10-time NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony.
The Knicks want to pursue a conversation with Anthony about possibly reincorporating him into the organization, league sources told ESPN.
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.
Earlier this week the Raptors acquired veteran swingman C.J. Miles in a sign-and-trade deal from the Pacers for Joseph.
The Los Angeles Lakers officially signed shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the team announced.
Pope received a one-year deal worth $18 million, according to multiple reports. His agreement with the Lakers was reported earlier this week.
Caldwell-Pope averaged 13.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and a career-high 2.5 assists in 76 games last season with the Pistons.
