News: Anthony is remaining with the Knicks, saying he wants "to stay and build here with this city and my team." He made his decision official Sunday with a posting on his website. He writes: "In the end, I am a New York Knick at heart." Impact: Anthony explains that he owed it to himself to explore other opportunities as a free agent, but in the end his "heart never wavered." The Knicks can pay the All-Star forward they acquired in February 2011 nearly $130 million over five years.

News: A person with knowledge of the details says Anthony is staying with the New York Knicks. Impact: Anthony has decided to stay in New York after meeting with a number of teams during free agency, the person told The Associated Press on Saturday on condition of anonymity because no announcement was made. The Knicks offered Anthony a maximum contract worth nearly $130 million over five years. He also met with Chicago, Houston, Dallas and the Lakers, though the Knicks were able to offer about $35 million more than any of them under NBA rules. (STATS, 8:01pm)

News: Anthony will return to the Knicks on a five-year, $120 million-plus contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports. Impact: After a lengthy decision-making process, Anthony will return to the team that can offer him the longest and most lucrative contract. Anthony considered the Bulls, Lakers and Rockets - he was also linked to the Mavericks and the Heat - before ultimately deciding to stay in New York. With some horrific contracts still on the books for the Knicks, they have been limited in free agency, and Anthony will be forced to carry much of the offensive burden once again next season. But next summer, when the contracts of Amare Stoudemire and Andrea Bargnani are off the books, the Knicks figure to be major players in free agency seeking to upgrade Anthony's supporting cast. In 77 games last season, Anthony averaged 27.4 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.(RotoWire, )
