(Kyle Lowry) A: When the time comes, then I will worry about it. It definitely will be an option. It's definitely home. I have been given the keys to it, [and it's where] I have been most successful.

The Timberwolves have attached Rubio to multiple offers with Shabazz Muhammad to several teams around the NBA, league sources said. Minnesota has been seeking something of a “bridge” guard in return, a player capable of starting in the short term, but who’ll ultimately settle into a backup role and give way to rookie Kris Dunn to become the long-term starter, league sources said.
The Sacramento Kings have had a strong interest in acquiring Rubio, but there’s no traction on a deal between those two teams, league sources said. So far, the Timberwolves are trying to exhaust the market elsewhere for a better return of assets than the Kings can offer.

UPDATE: 3:55pm ET
According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, in their meeting, Anthony reaffirmed his desire to remain with the Knicks.
Isola's account was later confirmed by Adrian Wojnarowski, who points out that Anthony's no-trade clause makes it improbable that the star is headed elsewhere anytime soon. According to Wojnarowski, the meeting was more "businesslike" than "contentious," for what it's worth.
