NEW YORK (AP) -- Carmelo Anthony can't avoid free agency talk, even from his friends.

He and Jason Kidd were posing for photographers at a Sept. 11 charity event Wednesday when Kidd, his former teammate and now the Brooklyn Nets' coach, asked Anthony if all the attention was for his announcement that he was going to Los Angeles.

If anyone else wants to bring up Anthony's status beyond this season, they'd better do it soon. Once the New York Knicks start practice, he stops the discussion.

He says "I'm just not going to do it."

Anthony and Kidd were among the athletes and entertainers who took part in a fundraiser in commemoration of the 658 Cantor Fitzgerald employees lost in the World Trade Center attacks.
