Carmelo Anthony has been pitched on why the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers are the best team for him. But it seems all the effort of putting up posters and billboards of 'Melo in various uniforms was useless. According to the New York Daily News, Anthony plans on re-signing with the New York Knicks.

The announcement should come on Thursday, barring some kind of unforeseen change of heart.

With the Knicks not making the playoffs for the first time in four years, they named basketball guru Phil Jackson new team president mid-way through the season. Jackson made his first big move when he hired first-time head coach Derek Fisher.

The Knicks are also reportedly seeking Los Angeles Lakers center Pau Gasol.
