Carmelo Anthony, presumably in an effort to get as far away from the New York Knicks as possible, recently linked up with Kyrie Irving and Jimmy Butler on the other side of the country for a casual game of hoops at UCLA.

Footage from the star-studded pickup game shows Melo (in maroon) teaming up with Kyrie (in grey), dominating their competition. A second video shows Jimmy Butler teaming up with Trevor Ariza against the two.

Carmelo has reportedly informed the Knicks that he has no interest in being reincorporated into the roster and is still pleading for a trade to the Rockets, although he has previously said he'd waive his no-trade clause if it meant teaming up with Kyrie and LeBron in Cleveland.

Check out the footage from their pickup game at UCLA below.
