There’s a distinct possibility that Carmelo Anthony will still decide to take a little less than the max contract the Knicks are willing to pay.
There has to be some huge concession to be made by the team for this to happen, but we'll believe it all when we see it. Guys like Melo don't make the free agent rounds around the NBA to find someplace they can take less money from.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Michael Brantley (back) has returned to the Indians' lineup Sunday.
Brantley was out of the lineup as precaution and now seems to be 100 percent healthy. Brantley was one of the most improved players last season, which has greatly increased his fantasy value as some people are drafting him in the second or third round in fantasy drafts. He'll have to have another strong season in order to return value on that high of a draft pick. Analysis: Mark Kaplan
