Mavericks to offer Carmelo Anthony $75 million

The Dallas Mavericks met with Carmelo Anthony and little details about the meeting and the proposed deal have come to the surface. Mavericks owner Mark Cuban did say that the meeting was “all business” and “all basketball.”

ESPN Dallas’ Tim MacMahon got some details on what the Mavs offer to Anthony was.

Of course the Mavericks might need to brace themselves to miss out on yet another “big fish” free agent. Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski suggests the Knicks are in great shape after a recent meeting with Carmelo.

All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony probed New York Knicks management on the franchise’s plan to restore a contending roster and left his final free-agency meeting largely aligned with president Phil Jackson‘s vision, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Anthony had direct questions for Jackson and coach Derek Fisher during a Thursday meeting in Los Angeles, and Anthony’s increased confidence with the Knicks’ direction – which includes a maximum contract offer of five years and $129 million – has strengthened the franchise’s chances of re-signing Anthony, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Of course Anthony hasn’t re-signed with the Knicks and could still leave the team. But hey, there is still LeBron James right?
