The addition of Andrea Bargnani and Metta World Peace has New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony excited about the upcoming season, but not enough that he can commit to the team long-term.

Anthony, 29, can opt out of his contract following the 2013-14 season. He has been rumored to be a target of the Los Angeles Lakers, where the franchise will look to rebuild and reemerge after the loss of Dwight Howard.

When asked whether the Knicks? offseason transactions have affected his decision to stay with the Knicks beyond next season, Anthony said he could not comment.

On Wednesday night, the Nets were defeated by the Miami Heat by a final score of 105-85.

The Skinny: Miami?s ?Big Three? started red hot from the field, hitting on seven of their first 10 shots to establish a 10-point advantage. The Nets made a small dent into the lead, but the Heat shot 5-for-5 from three-point range in the quarter to maintain a 10-point lead after one.

Miami kept knocking down threes, but the Nets? second unit, led by Andray Blatche, provided an energy boost to get within six. Brook Lopez began heating up from the outside to help cut the lead to two, and he then found Gerald Wallace down low for a layup on the next possession to tie the game. The teams traded buckets in the closing seconds to head into the break all tied up. The Nets outscored the Heat 29-19 in the second quarter.

Even right after defeating the Orlando Magic Monday night, the Nets were already looking forward to their matchup with the top-seed in the Eastern Conference, the Miami Heat.

The Heat have won the previous two matchups against the Nets, but Deron Williams said things have changed since that time.
