Carmelo Anthony feels there is no reason to think about his potential free agency now.

The New York Knicks don't seem so sure.

The Knicks followed their first Atlantic Division championship team in 19 years with a strangely timed change in the front office, just days before opening training camp. Steve Mills returned to Madison Square Garden as president and general manager with a mandate from owner James Dolan to overhaul the organization and make the Knicks "the best that there can be in the NBA."

That might help keep Anthony in New York after this season, when he can become a free agent, and Mills made it clear that's a priority. But Anthony said Monday at Knicks media day that his future is "not something I've been thinking about."
