Carmelo Anthony has to inform the Knicks by Sunday if he is opting out of his contract and become a free agent July 1st.
Considering the level of interest so many teams are showing, it would be a huge surprise if Anthony didn't opt out of his deal and find his way into an even fatter contract. The rest of the NBA is salivating while awaiting his official decision. ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Rangers released Ryan Ludwick on Sunday.
Ludwick was notified a couple days back that he would not be making the big-league team and was allowed to search for another team. He has struggled in Spring Training and hasn't been able to get over the .700 OPS mark the last two seasons. The Rangers will look internally to create outfield options for the 2015 season.
