The Knicks offered Anthony a maximum level contract, worth nearly $130 million over five years, at their meeting in Los Angeles. Anthony had previously met with Chicago, Houston, Dallas and the Lakers. Jackson added that he had made perhaps five contract proposals to Anthony. He has said he hopes the NBAs leading scorer in 2012-13 would be open to taking less than the max to allow for more future spending flexibility.
