Magic, Knicks Atop Melo's Wish List

I'd rather have him stay in denver, but this isn't really the same thing as LeBron leaving to "take his talents to south beach."
if Lebron would have signed with a real agent, none of that would ever have happened. But he's being led around by the nose by Maverick Carter, and he just keeps making one mistake after the next. But he's too sheltered/stupid to realize it.
Has there ever been a guy who went from the most popular athlete in the country to the least popular in the span of 30 minutes? And because he still goes to the "club" and people there still jock him, LeBron thinks nothing of it. Unbelieveable. Actually it's not given the sheltered state of super-athletes.the above opinion is not respected by Deleterious

Kobe went from popular to despised than back to popular in a span of five years. And for much worse reasons. LeBron could recover especially if he wins"Violence on television only affects children whose parents act like television personalities" -David Byrne

When you sacrifice the past two years and a good deal of your future, you better make a huge splash like the Heat did. The Knicks arent in horrible shape. But a lot of things need to fall perfectly into place in the next 2 years for me to consider what they did a success.VT

I'm not going to get into whether or not the Knicks failed, but if they end up swinging something to bring Carmelo in as well, I wouldn't look at them as a team who failed.
Option one, was get LeBron....obviously didn't happen. But honestly, I would probably prefer Amare & Carmelo to just LeBron.2012 Adopt-A-Tiger - Ryan Strieby

I don't think that is asking a lot when you basically gave up on the past 2 years. Then traded away the next 4-6 years of your future by moving every future draft pick the league will legally allow to be traded.VT

Can the Denver Nuggets trade J.R. Smith even if they want to? | All Things Nuggets
Meanwhile, if the Nuggets cannot convince Carmelo Anthony to sign an extension with the team and they decide to trade him at some point, could it be to the Los Angeles Clippers? I’m hearing it could be a possibility. It would get both he and his wife, La La, out to where entertainment opportunities are plentiful, which is key factor in their decision to want to move on. The Nuggets might be able to get a good young player or two or draft picks, and Anthony would be able to play on a team with some good up-and-coming talent.VT

Kroenke's son tries to woo Anthony - NBA - Yahoo! Sports
Anthony has hesitated to sign a three-year, $65 million extension and expressed intrigue with opting out of his contract next summer to become a free agent. Despite significant speculation the New York Knicks are the team that Anthony would most likely want to join, two sources close to him insisted the Knicks have been overstated as an object of his desire. Privately, Anthony has expressed more enthusiasm over joining the Houston Rockets than the Knicks, sources said.VT

Police: J.R. Smith Involved in Altercation at Nuggets Practice Facility -- NBA FanHouse
Police: J.R. Smith Involved in Altercation at Nuggets Practice Facility
Denver Nuggets shooting guard J.R. Smith was involved in an altercation at the team's practice facility on Aug. 13, when police arrived after a player not associated with the Nuggets claimed to have been attacked by the mercurial 24-year-old.
After numerous sources told FanHouse of the incident, the Denver Police Department confirmed it on Wednesday afternoon.
"We did have a report of an altercation that took place at the Denver Nuggets' practice facility," Detective John White of the Denver Police Department told FanHouse by phone. "That case was investigated and ultimately presented to the district attorney's office. ... Ultimately, the district attorney's office, after being presented with the findings by the Denver Police Department, decided not to pursue charges."They were just wanting the guy to be physical with J.R., telling the other guys, 'Hey, body up on the guys and really make them work,'" the source said. "J.R. just lost it. He tried to choke the kid, and the kid called the cops."VT

Report: Carmelo Anthony told Denver owner face-to-face to trade him, team trying - ProBasketballTalk - Basketball - NBC Sports
Report: Carmelo Anthony told Denver owner face-to-face to trade him, team trying
Not sure that was the exact welcoming package for the new Denver Nuggets general manager, but a new report says it may not be far off. And apparently the Nets and Clippers are the frontrunners to be the new team for 'Melo.
Anthony cannot publicly request a trade unless he wants to pay some very steep fines, so everything is handled through back channels. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo, the master of back channels -- William Wesley -- told the Nuggets in no uncertain terms they needed to move the superstar in an extend-and-trade deal. That Anthony was not going to sign the three-year, $65 million extension in front of him.VT

Report: Jamal Crawford to demand extension or trade from Hawks - ProBasketballTalk - Basketball - NBC Sports
Report: Jamal Crawford to demand extension or trade from Hawks
Jamal Crawford has his best year in the NBA last season -- scoring 18 poins a game he won the Sixth Man of the Year award, which was fueled by an improved shooting percentage as he was a little more selective with his shots (fewer long twos than with the Knicks). His game matured.
Now he wants to be compensated for it. Or go somewhere he will be.
He wants a contract extension -- he is entering the last year of his deal, paying him $10 million-- or he will asked to be traded, someone close to Crawford told Fanhouse's Sam Amick.
Crawford's scoring punch off the bench was key to the Hawks jumping to 53 wins last season. The Hawks will bring the same players back -- they spent money on Joe Johnson giving him a max contract -- but are counting on new coach Larry Drew to take the Hawks farther.
Crawford wants some security long term, and the fact he would be a free agent just as there is a new Collective Bargaining Agreement might have something to do with it as well.
If Hawks GM Rick Sund decides to move him, an expiring contract who could give a team points in the short term will have a lot of interest.VT

Melo is running around with World Wide Wes and talking with CP3 the same way Lebron talked to Wade. This is the new NBA.

Unless he goes to NYC because that's where he's from and that's where his wife lives. But if he went to Houston? That's bush league.
If he goes to NYC to "play with amare and CP3 and win a championship," then he's no better than LeBron.the above opinion is not respected by Deleterious

Nuggets Want To Deal Carmelo To Nets, Kings Or Wolves
Sam Amico of NBA.com is reporting that the Nuggets are looking at three teams as destinations for All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony -- the Nets, Kings and Timberwolves.
"Early word around NBA is Nuggets will try to trade Carmelo to 1 of 3 teams: Wolves, Kings, Nets. In other words, careful what you wish for," Amico wrote on his Twitter page.
The New York Post reported on Saturday morning that the Nets are a "legit" suitor for Anthony.
An NBA executive was quoted as saying that New Jersey as the right pieces to acquire the forward.VT

Nobody wants to play for the Nets.
I wonder if that Russian billionaire knew what he was getting into when he bought that team? This isn't international soccer. You can't just buy a new team every year. Just because you have the most money doesn't mean you have the best team in the NBA (or any American sport other than baseball).the above opinion is not respected by Deleterious

RealGM: Basketball Wiretap Archives: Nets Unwilling To Offer Lopez For Melo, As Denver Hears Trade Offers
Nets Unwilling To Offer Lopez For Melo, As Denver Hears Trade Offers
According to one report, the Nets are not willing to include Brook Lopez in an attempt to trade for Carmelo Anthony. But New Jersey's offer of Devin Harris, Derek Favors and draft picks may still give the Nuggets the best pieces in return for Anthony.
No mention is made of whether Anthony would agree to sign an extension with the Nets or the other interested teams as part of a trade out of Denver. Anthony's long-term commitment figures to be a prerequisite before teams offer the Nuggets quality assets in a deal.
The Nuggets have had discussions with the Bulls that center around Luol Deng and Taj Gibson.
The Warriors may offer Stephen Curry, Andris Biedrins and draft picks but are not sure that they will make Curry available.
The Clippers are called a long shot with Chris Kaman and Eric Gordon the likely two targets whom Denver would look to acquire.VT
