New York • A person with knowledge of the plans says the New York Knicks plan to meet with Carmelo Anthony on Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles.
Team president Phil Jackson and general manager Steve Mills were expected to be part of the meeting but not Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details of the meeting were to remain private.
The meeting was first reported by ESPN.
Anthony was in Los Angeles to meet with the Lakers, who are among the teams hoping to convince the All-Star forward to leave New York. Anthony already visited Chicago, Houston and Dallas this week.
The Knicks can offer him the largest contract, though Jackson has said he hopes Anthony will take less than a maximum contract.
