Considering this is an anonymous teammate, we'll take the information with a grain of salt, but it appears Melo has plans to leave New York after this season. A former teammate told the New York Daily News
“I think he’s leaving. I’ve played with Melo for a long time and he knows he can’t win here. At this stage, all he wants to do is win. That’s why he’ll leave.”
Under the collective bargaining agreement, the Knicks will be able to offer Melo $30 million more than any other team. It's tough to believe Melo will leave that kind of money on the table, especially after forcing his way to New York in the first place.
That said, we keep hearing reports from people close to Melo that he is looking forward to playing else where next season. Only time will tell, but for now, he'd be better suited trying to turn it around in New York rather than planning for a new future.
