NEW YORK (AP) -

A person with knowledge of the details says Carmelo Anthony is staying with the New York Knicks.
    
Anthony has decided to stay in New York after meeting with a number of teams during free agency, the person told The Associated Press on Saturday on condition of anonymity because no announcement was made.
    
The Knicks offered Anthony a maximum contract worth nearly $130 million over five years. He also met with Chicago, Houston, Dallas and the Lakers, though the Knicks were able to offer about $35 million more than any of them under NBA rules.
    
Yahoo Sports and the Daily News of New York first reported Anthony's plans.
