"We are just going through a time right now". So, New York is definitely where I'm at and where I'm staying. "So wherever he ends up, of course we want him to be happy".

La La and Carmelo Anthony have had marital troubles recently, according to reports, which La La acknowledged on Williams' show. But, despite knowing that they aren't divorcing just yet, La La is still uncertain about the future.

Phil Jackson has made it clear that it's probably best for the Knicks to move on from Anthony, but buying him out would be a costly move.

"That's my son's father and he is an awesome dad", she explained.

ESPN reported Wednesday, citing sources familiar with the Knicks star's thinking, that Anthony was amenable to being traded at the end of the season but that he has recently gone back and forth about whether he would leave NY.

Anthony said she still loves her 33-year-old spouse despite the split.

If it reaches that point, Jackson has the ability to make Anthony's life miserable - i.e. sticking the 33-year-old on the bench of a awful team at the end of his prime. We know he wants Melo in Cleveland to help against the Warriors, so don't make it easy and just give him for free.

George, a 27-year-old four-time All-Star, is a highly sought-after target in the National Basketball Association this off season and combining him with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving could produce a viable challenger to the dominant Golden State Warriors next season.

"We've expressed the fact that we haven't been successful and it might be time for (Carmelo) to find an opportunity to go somewhere else", Jackson said in an interview with MSG Network.

George has said that he only plans to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers as a free agent next offseason, yet the Cleveland Cavaliers have been trying to acquire him to be a "one-year rental" as they try to compete for a championship next year. "We have to set an example for Kiyan and that's what's most important to me".

The New York Knicks summer keeps getting more complicated.
