NY went 31-51, falling well short of preseason expectations bolstered by the offseason additions of Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah.
"We've not been able to win with (Anthony) on the court at this time,"Jackson told reporters during his 50 minute pow-wow with the NY media". Anthony and Jackson just can't continue to coexist in the same franchise. Anthony holds a no-trade clause, meaning he can approve or shoot down any potential trades.
Those comments should ratchet up Anthony trade rumors over the course of the offseason. The Knicks finished 31-51 in their fourth straight season out of the playoffs.
The 32-year-old superstar said earlier this week that while he'd "love" to remain on the Knicks roster, he wants a commitment to winning immediately.
"I have a lot of thinking and reflecting to do", Anthony told ESPN.
The New York Post reported that Anthony met Thursday with Jackson, coach Jeff Hornacek, and general manager Steve Mills.

Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA's lobbying arm, said, "It is a great day for freedom". The Iowa Judicial Branch, which oversees state courts, shares similar concerns.
"(But) Obviously, it hasn't worked out as a partnership".
If Anthony and his hefty ($26.2M) salary is moved, the Knicks must either find a taker with major cap room or take back high-salary players. This is not a situation we're going to dump you.
The Knicks seem to be pushing Anthony to waive his no-trade clause by presenting a better option to chase a title.
Jackson said Rose, who will be a free agent, expressed a desire to return to NY and intimated that the Knicks would consider re-signing him.
"I never took a jump shot, never made a substitution, but the buck stops here", Jackson said.
