The Knicks reportedly gave Carmelo Anthony unlimited influence to build a team around him after the 2013-2014 season, Hoopsworld reported Monday.

In an attempt to keep their best player from potentially re-signing with several reported suitors in 2014, when Anthony can opt out of his contract, New York is willing to allow him to choose the players the team will surround him with.

The Knicks informed Anthony that they will have tons of salary cap room in 2015 and that the 29-year-old can pick his teammates, according to the report. With support from the New York fan base, and the Knicks opulent budget, Anthony will have many options in 2015. There will be several attractive offers from teams for Anthony's services but with seemingly unlimited influence in New York, the opposition will be hard-pressed to draw him away from the bright lights of Madison Square Garden.  

New York Knicks Rumors: Delonte West on Team's Radar? 

Anthony has a long list of athletes to choose from. NBA players such as Tony Parker, Rajon Rondo Andrew Bynum, Marc Gasol, DeAndre Jordan, LaMarcus Aldridge and Zach Randolph will all be unrestricted free agents, and many more stars could be on the market as restricted free agents. 

ESPN learned in mid-July from sources in the Lakers' front office that the franchise is pondering whether it could acquire the Knicks' Anthony and the Heat's James when the superstars potentially become free agents at the end of the next NBA season. Los Angeles' executives are reportedly split over the feasibility of landing either player, but nonetheless, the team is preparing to take their best shot at both players in the hopes of signing at least one.
