Carmelo stays with the Knicks!

Carmelo Anthony has made it official and announced today he’s staying in New York!

In a post on his website Anthony said,

 “My City, My Heart.”

He went on to explain why he met with other teams saying he owed it to himself to explore his options as a free agent but said through it all his heart never wavered.

“This organization has supported me and in return, I want to stay and build here with this city and my team,” he said.

Melo stands to make about $130 million over the next five years; however, he’s willing to take a salary cut to build a winning team.
