La La Anthony thinks Carmelo will stay in New York

Carmelo Anthony's wife thinks he will remain a Knick.

Carmelo Anthony's wife, La La, told Bravo TV that she expects her husband to re-sign with the New York Knicks this summer when he hits free agency, via ESPN New York:

"I definitely think he will stay [in New York]. I know that he wants to stay and I support him wherever he wants to go," La La Anthony said in an interview with Bravo TV's "Watch What Happens Live." "Listen, I used to live in Denver with him. If I can live in Denver, I can live anywhere. I just want him to be happy."

Given that La La is an actress and television personality, it has long been assumed that she would like Anthony to be in a city like New York or Los Angeles. The fact that she's said she thinks Carmelo will stay with the Knicks does not mean anything is a done deal -- a lot can change between now and July -- but it is relevant.

Obviously, if he was leaning toward leaving, it is unlikely that Lala would say so.

When the subject has come up, Anthony has denied rumors that he wants out and has said that the main factor he'll be looking at as a free agent is the chance to win a title. Due to the collective bargaining agreement, the Knicks can offer him more money than any other franchise, but they might have to prove to him that they have a viable plan going forward.
