It seems like it's getting more and more likely that Carmelo Anthony's time with the New York Knicks will be coming to a close by the NBA Trade Deadline, but I guess we'll see.

Reports have already came out that Anthony is willing to waive his no-trade clause for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Clippers. The Knicks have been in trade talks with both teams, but have had no success so far.

Apparently there is another team that Melo could waive his no-trade clause for, though. According to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe, the Celtics are that team.

The C's have been one of the teams mentioned early during the Melo trade rumors this season, but many were skeptical if Anthony would waive his no-trade clause for Boston. There also seems to be a divide within the franchise on if they really want him or not.

"Celtics coach Brad Stevens would embrace coaching Anthony, but president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has rejected any deal," Washburn writes.

Anthony will be due over $26 million with the Celtics, so cap flexibility could also be an issue for Boston on trying to acquire him. Who knows if Anthony will mesh well with the players on the roster?

Also, I don't know how Melo would feel going to a team that is in the same division as his current Knicks. However, I do think he could fit well with Boston just due to how great of a coach Brad Stevens is.

However, I don't know how I feel about him and Isaiah Thomas together. I feel like there could be a controversy on who would be the main scorer then.

In my opinion, I think a trade to Cleveland or Los Angeles seems more likely and suitable for Carmelo.
