Carmelo Anthony Rents Four NY Apartments While He House Hunts

NBA star Carmelo Anthony, who was traded in February from the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks, will soon be moving himself and his extended family and some assistants into several Manhattan rentals so he can take his time looking for the right home to purchase, his real estate agent told AOL Real Estate.

"It was kind of a whirlwind when he came to New York. He didn't want to rush into the actual purchase at that time," says agent Prince Dockery, whose Prince Group is a new addition to the Prudential Douglas Elliman team. "He is going to buy at some point."

Although Dockery wouldn't reveal the exact location of the rentals, the New York Daily News reports that Anthony has taken four--count 'em--apartments in two buildings, the Aldyn and its sister building, the Ashley, both on the Upper West Side.
