While speaking to reporters on Friday (April 14), the Knicks President concluded that Melo "would be better off somewhere else".
This was the first time Jackson addressed reporters since September 23, and he had plenty to cover after the Knicks went 31-51 - the team's third straight season of at least 50 losses.
Speaking at a press conference after a season in which the Knicks failed to make the playoffs for a third straight campaign, Jackson indicated nine-time All-Star Anthony wasn't a good fit for the team's rebuilding plans.

Jackson said he warned Anthony after last season the Knicks wouldn't be able to provide him a winning team, but Anthony opted to stay. I think he had some concern this year about physical.
