Description: Rumors are running rampant about the future of Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony.
Insight: Yahoo Sports has reported that Anthony is leaning towards leaving the Knicks while the New York Post said the Knicks feel good about their chances of keeping Melo.

Description: According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, the Heat are looking to sign Carmelo Anthony.
Insight: It's a foregone conclusion that Anthony will opt out of his contract with the Knicks and become a free agent. The move would give Miami a Big Four featuring Melo, LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. Of course, in order for this to happen, all four would have to accept a significant pay cut. At this point, it's unclear if Anthony is willing to do that.

The Bulls, Rockets and Mavericks are all expected to pursue Anthony if he opts out.
