carmelo anthony looks upKnicks small forward Carmelo Anthony says he would take a pay cut during the 2014 NBA Free Agency period if it can allow New York to acquire more free agents.

“Without a doubt,” Anthony said while in New Orleans for All Star Weekend. “Any opportunity I have to build that up in New York, I’d do it. I told people all the time, always say, if it takes me taking a pay cut, I’ll be the first one on (Knicks owner) Mr. [James] Dolan’s steps saying: 'Take my money and let’s build something strong over here.’"

Essentially, Melo would basically be pulling a LeBron James by taking less money in order to allow another star or two to team up with and become a championship contender. If it can work, it can definitely pay off in the near future for Melo and company.

We'll see what happens in the summer, but as of right now, Melo is only worried about relaxing and putting on a show on Sunday night in the All-Star Game.
