Anthony: Bargnani’s Transition Should be Easy
Carmelo Anthony had privately pined for a secondary scorer in the offseason. After the first practice of training camp, Anthony likes what he sees in the Knicks’ key offseason acquisition, Andrea Bargnani.
Anthony said he’d be willing to slide over from power forward to small forward to make room for the 6-foot-11 Italian in the starting lineup. He had one of the best lines of his Knicks career when asked whether the former No. 1 overall pick by the Raptors can handle the Big Apple pressure.
“There ain’t no pressure on him,’’ Anthony said. “You come in and do what you got to do and play ball. All the pressure’s on me. It should be easy for him. It should be an easy transition for him, adjusting. Just do it the right way, it should be easy for him.’’
