Carmelo Anthony has reported "aligned" with New York (and Phil Jackson)'s plan, and it seems like he'll take the 5 year, $129 million deal that's been reportedly offered verbally by the Knicks.

Joakim Noah, who was part of the welcoming committee when Melo visited the Bulls, was also quoted telling people that Anthony would stay in New York.

With a 7-year old son, and his own liking of NY, it does make sense that Anthony stays.

The Knicks are reported also pursuing Pau Gasol.
