Portland's mention of involvement on July 6 set rumors in motion.

"Anybody can beat anybody, but the Warriors are still the favorites", Thompson added. But Mills will be on better footing in his second chance to run the Knicks with the well-respected Perry as his right-hand man.

"It appears that Anthony remains committed to finalizing a trade to the Houston Rockets despite the Knicks' sudden hesitation to complete the deal in the wake of the proposed hiring of new general manager Scott Perry".

The two-time champion with the Lakers predicted last month that the Dubs could win four of the next five NBA titles.

"They'll be a serious threat to the Warriors", Thompson said when TMZ tracked him down. The person spoke to The Associated Press Thursday on condition of anonymity because the talks between the teams remain private. "If we can get him, obviously he would help our team tremendously".

It was a disappointing turn of events for folks in Houston, as we were so close to putting together a Big Three of our own. His ability to score at will from anywhere on the court and play at either forward position would put a wrinkle in Mike D'Antoni's offense that not even the '04 Pistons could iron out. There are a lot of teams in the Western Conference that are making moves to try and knock off the Warriors.

El ex número uno del mundo ahora vuelve a poner la cima del ranking entre uno de sus objetivos para la segunda mitad del año. El año pasado, el croata cedió después de una dura lucha en cinco parciales: 6-7 (4), 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (9) y 6-3.

Now, they are after Anthony, whom the Knicks seemed destined to move until Friday, when it was reported by ESPN that New York may now want to reincorporate the 10-time All-Star into the organization.

That changed late in the week, with reports that the talks stalled.

This is a discussion that is going to expand past just the Rockets.

So, in a way, perhaps this is the beginning of a new era for the Knicks, no matter how much Dolan and the rest of Madison Square Garden aren't interested in changing anything else. Would he actually want to return to a franchise and fanbase that doesn't really want him? That led to Griffin pulling out of consideration for the job.

I wouldn't be surprised if Carmelo eventually attempts to force a trade to join his buddies Chris Paul and James Harden in H-town, or dare I say it, LeBron James in Cleveland.
