Rumor: Anthony wanted Knicks to sign Josh Howard?

Sources reveal to SLAMonline that Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony recruited Josh Howard during the offseason to play in The Big Apple. Anthony called Howard multiple times, according to sources, to convince the former Wizards forward to join the Knicks’ frontcourt as Anthony’s backup.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: He wants Kenyon Martin. And he wanted Josh Howard.

Carmelo Anthony, the New York Knicks’ franchise player and star forward, hasn’t exactly been subtle with his opinion on personnel moves.

There were reports Anthony wants the Knicks to sign Martin, his former frontcourt partner and friend with the Denver Nuggets.

Martin, of course, can’t join an NBA team until March because he signed with a Chinese club during the lockout, so the former first overall pick must wait until the red tape clears.

Now reports are surfacing that Anthony wanted the Knicks to land Josh Howard, the versatile, do-everything swing who eventually ended up with the Utah Jazz.

Anthony’s input is great and he means well, but there’s a limit. NBA superstars will always have and give their opinion, however, the danger is when it seems like the inmates are running the asylum.

Howard must find old form with Arenas, Wall, and Wizards

The Wizards will re-sign forward Josh Howard, according to a source. Washington acquired Howard along with Drew Gooden, James Singleton and Quinton Ross in a February trade with Dallas.

Howard will sign a one-year worth close to $4 million deal with the Wizards, Howard's consultant Derek Lafayette told Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: The mighty have fallen. Hard.
 
Not long ago, Josh Howard was the second best player on a Dallas Mavericks squad that was favoured to win a championship. Team Cuban relied on Howard to score early and often before former MVP Dirk Nowitzki closed things out.
 
Both team and player had their share of stumbles. The Mavericks never won that championship. Howard's play suffered.
 
He battled injuries. His focus waned. And he got caught up in a series of bizarre off-court incidents.
 
With his reputation tarnished, Howard - no longer a top second star - signed a one year, $4 million contract to stay with the rebuilding Washington Wizards.
 
He is starting over. If he gets his game together, if he replicates his past, and if he again resembles a poor man's Scottie Pippen, the Wizards will have done well.
 
That is a lot of ifs. He'll have help with combo guard Gilbert Arenas and first overall pick John Wall. And Howard has the talent to rise again.
 
Oly Sandor.
