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
Cecil Shorts might be ready to play against Jacksonville in Week 6.
Both Shorts and Nate Washington missed Thursday's game, making way for Jaelen Strong and Keith Mumphery. While strong caught two TDs, Mumphery was a non-factor. Strong earned himself more playing time in the coming weeks, possibly coming at Shorts' expense, though it could come at Washington's as coach Bill O'Brien said that Shorts had a better chance of playing against Jacksonville than Washington does.
