While the New York Daily News reported that Carmelo Anthony believes in Phil Jackson's plan and intends to return to the New York Knicks, Jackson told reporters on Thursday that he's still waiting to be informed by the star free agent.

Jackson added that there are multiple offers on the table for Anthony:
