View Full Version : Denver Post: Nuggets "prepared to trade Melo rather than let him walk" as FA in 2011

The Nuggets are pressing Carmelo Anthony for a long-term commitment, because if he declines a three-year, $65 million contract extension now on the table, the team must consider trading its leading scorer.


With an eye on how megastars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have held the league's competitive balance in their fickle hands and turned this summer's free-agency period into a three-ring circus, the Nuggets seem determined not to let Anthony do the same in Denver.

While their offer of a hefty contract extension proves the Nuggets hope Anthony will remain the face of the franchise for years to come, the team is prepared to trade Melo rather than let him walk as a free agent next summer, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.

I'm not buying that the Nuggets FO is seriously entertaining the idea of trading Melo. I chalk it up to a negotiating tactic. But it's reported in the Denver Post (click here for the whole article) (http://www.denverpost.com/nuggets/ci_15405631?source=rss&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=twitter), and attributed to "a source familiar with the negotiations", so who knows?

I still say the smart money, though, is on Melo extending through 2015 within the next month or so in order to secure a contract under the current CBA and avoid getting screwed by becoming a FA in the same summer when the NBA goes into lockout.


The Nuggets are pressing Carmelo Anthony for a long-term commitment, because if he declines a three-year, $65 million contract extension now on the table, the team must consider trading its leading scorer.

Trade Melo? Would the Nuggets really part ways with a 26-year-old forward in the prime of his NBA career? Denver might not have any choice.

With an eye on how megastars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have held the league's competitive balance in their fickle hands and turned this summer's free-agency period into a three-ring circus, the Nuggets seem determined not to let Anthony do the same in Denver.

I think this is where Houston or Chicago (if they miss out on Bron/Bosh/whoever) could really clean up.

Both teams have assets to trade, Chicago has cap space, Houston has an owner with a massive checkbook who wants to win.

I don't see Chicago striking out.

But I think Houston could be alone this summer in talks for Carmelo Anthony or Danny Granger.

He's not leaving. They're not saying he's on the trading block; just that if he does decide to leave them in FA, they want to get something in return.

At a salary of $17 million, Anthony is committed to play for Denver during the upcoming season. But here's the rub. Anthony can opt out of his contract next summer, and free agency might appear all the more tempting after seeing the league-wide groveling James has instigated.

Melo would lose 10-15 Million doing that deal with a new CBA in place next summer. Why would he want to go play with Wilson Chandler & Danillo Gallinari? Denver is clearing off cap space as well similar to what Miami is doing with Wade. Kenyon Martin expires at the end of next season, and Billups & Nene expire the season afterwards. Denver could put some good younger players around Melo very soon.

If you are the Denver front office, why come out and let this slip to the media?

Are they upset Melo didn't jump right away at their offer? Now you are alienating your best player - and for what?

Come on - he's not going anywhere.

We are not letting Melo' go, but if anyone wants to send us something for JR we'd be happy to take it.

It's a smart move by Denver. It's better to get a bunch of young talent for him than just watch him walk for nothing. By the time next summer comes around, the next best player on the team will be a spent up Billups. If Melo leaves for nothing, Denver is really hurting.

All you western conference fans - Denver isn't stupid enough to trade Melo within the conference. If they trade him, they'd send him East.

Ha, me & JB both blind to the first thread. My apologies for double posting this (cough, cough) "news". In my defense, threads are coming so fast and furious stuff gets bumped off the front page real quick these days. We're trying to keep it in check, folks, but hey, nobody shoots 1.000 from the arc. Anyhoo....

As I said in my first post, I think it's a negotiating tactic. Melo's putting the pressure on the Nuggs by holding back and not signing right away. The Nuggs are putting some pressure back on by saying, "Oh, yeah? Do you really wanna go FA in the summer of the lockout?"

At the end of the day, though, I think they're just both making the obligatory overtures, feigning the upper hand when neither party really has it. Melo's best case scenario (assuming a lockout) is extending under the current CBA, and of course, the Nuggets' best case scenario is keeping Melo.

I have a strong feeling that negotiations are actually very friendly, and this is more the media trying to make a beef than anyone actually beefing.


But on the off chance (far, far off off chance, imho) that there is actually meat to this rumor, and you believe it, then who do you ("you" meaning anybody, not only "BigBanger" who I quoted) think the Nuggets would actually give up Melo for, and what team do you think would give up a player of that caliber for Melo?

He's a Nugget for life, I think. And hope. But really, this is just Kiz starting some ****.

I agree. I think he just wants a commitment to winning right now. This team is close, but they need to make some changes, possibly another low post presence that can score. If the Nuggets make moves this offseason that show they're looking to win a title now, Melo will surely stay.

Interestingly, the last day Anthony could sign an extension before he has to make a decision on opting out is June 30, 2011. That's 10 days after the Nuggets have to make a call on Billups. "I'm hoping like crazy that he stays,'' Billups said of wanting Anthony to sign the extension. "That's the franchise.'' Billups said he hasn't talked to Anthony about the extension offer and doesn't know what's on his mind. But he said he plans to court Anthony to stay. "Absolutely,'' Billups said. "I have to try to do that.'' FanHouse.com

Wise decision by Denver. But they're not going to be able to move him, unless this evolves into a 3 team trade of some sort.

On the other hand, I've said it before and I'll say it again: Melo is going to opt out. He is going to wake up and see a landscape where the top teams in the league will be stacked. It's possible he would have to earn a title against a team made of LeBron, Wade and Bosh for the next few years. No matter what Denver does to build around him, I don't think it will be enough to beat that.

Melo will walk. It's just a matter of time. The question is what can Denver do to better prepare themselves now. Getting his name out there as trade bait is a good move, especially now.

I wish I could make a monetary bet with you here that Melo would re-sign within the next 3 months for an extension which takes him through to 2015. Because pretty much, he'd be crazy not to with the impending lockout and CBA that will undermine his potential salary. If he doesn't take the offer that the Nuggs put on the table, I'll be shocked. And his agent's career will take a nose dive.

I hear you and I know that any rational mind would seek the big payday over anything else...usually.

But I also believe that new CBA or not, the NBA teams will continue to shell out sizable salaries to the top tier players in the league. Any scaling back of salaries is bound to effect the overpaid and underperforming mid-tier talent more than it will the superstars. No longer will you see a Peja Stojakovic get a contract of $14M - $15M a year or a Sasha Vujacic earning $5M -$6M annually. Those days will be gone after the new CBA.

But superstars will still command contracts in the tens of millions. If you're Melo, I don't think it's a major sacrifice to forego a $21M/yr for 3 years contract in a place where you don't feel that you can win a title in favor of a $15M/yr - $18M/yr longer term contract in a place where you believe you can win.

Obviously none of the above is more than speculation, but I think Melo walks.

^All of which presumes that the Melo believes the Nuggets can't be a contender, while any of the other teams which might have cap space to sign him in 2011 (assuming there's no lockout to prevent that happening in the first place, which is extremely unlikely at this point), can be contenders.

The double max train leaves the station this summer. Melo's agent better well know he damn well won't have a better deal looking him in the face next summer than what's on the table right now.

I think Melo is only waiting to see if Denver will use its valuable assets to get a big trade done to help this team. He is the Denver Nuggets, and has been the face of this franchise since he was drafted. The NBA hasn't had this much respect for the Nuggets since they upset the Super Sonics in 1995. Melo just wants to know the team is continuing to go in the right direction now and not later. I agree; I doubt he leaves.

It would be a stupid decision for Melo to turn down the offer the Nuggets are giving him, he will lose a lot of money. But maybe he really hates Denver, or wants a fresh start. That being said I wouldn't mind him in Philly with Jrue and ET.

But he is in a good situation and has a lot of money on the table I can't see him leaving.

Can't speak as to whether he wants a fresh start or not, but he has never had anything but kind words for Denver. By all accounts, he likes it there, and he likes the home and the family life he's set up there.

Separately, Billups said he will be campaigning Melo (http://nba.fanhouse.com/2010/06/29/billups-wont-call-it-a-contract-year-but-wants-to-retire-with-n/) to get him to stay:

He is a horrible writer and usually is wrong about most things, but you never know for sure. And for the Raider Laker fan, I'm sorry, but how on earth are they never going to be contenders? Two years removed from the Western Finals and we were the # 2 seed for the longest time last year until Karl unfortunately wasn't able to coach and Kmart went out. I'm not saying they're favored by any means, but they're one big man away from being in the conversation again whether it is FA or at the trade deadline.

Brandon Roy for Melo would be a steal for the Trail Blazers. I can name 20 players as good or better than Roy in the Western Conference alone. I can not name 1 player better than Melo in the West. Roy is a very good player, but great never.

The Sacramento Kings offer:

Samuel Dalembert (Expiring)
Omri Casspi
2011 First Round Pick
2011 Second Round Pick
And either Jason Thompson, Francisco Garcia, or Beno Udrih

Hmm, that probably wouldn't be enough..
How about

Carl Landry
Omri Casspi
2011 First Round Pick
Francisco Garcia

Idk if salaries match tho.

It doesnt match but if kings threw in Dalembart and nugs threw in birdman the contracts would match

Landry + Casspi + Garcia + Dalembart for Melo + birdman

Since The Kings are under the cap would they have to match salaries?

what the author means is that they'd give him away in a sign & trade not randomly in the offseason
