Carmelo Anthony is "strongly considering declining" the Nuggets' three-year, $65 million contract offer, according to Newsday. If he does decline, the Knicks may try to pry him from Denver with a trade offer. The Nuggets could be forced to trade him to ensure he won't walk for nothing as a free agent, though at this point it's all speculation. Stoking the fires is the fact that Melo and his wife were both born in Brooklyn, and they recently listed their Denver-area mansion for sale.

NBA players aren't allowed to participate in the real estate market unless they're being traded or signing elsewhere. It's in the league's bylaws.

Link please. This would just be crazy, and I can't believe it's true. Once a player buys a home, he's not allowed to move unless he's changing teams? I doubt it.

He was being sarcastic as in trying to say that maybe the guys just wants a new home.

Even I have to admit this is starting to get interesting. If he wants to start being a egomaniac like these guys in free agency are then just trade him. As much as I love him i'd rather see our team get some young talent back instead of not getting anything.

That talk actually made sense with LeBron's huge ego & his plan to become a sports billionaire marketed globally.


This whole nonsense just doesn't apply to Melo. Carmelo Anthony is not marketable to a broader audience. He lost that marketability with his incidents off the court which people still remember and hold against him. Melo is all about basketball, not trying to be a corporate sponsor to sell shoes to kids in Germany.

A Nuggets source recently called talk of trading Anthony "absolute speculation" but did not deny it as a possible result if Anthony does not want to re-sign. A member of the NBA's famed 2003 draft class, Anthony has not been able to raise his stature to that of James and Wade, and a move to a major market could help.

I'm a Nuggets fan and I clearly don't want to lose him but if we do trade him it won't be to New York. We likely would look to deal him for young talent and all you guys can offer us is Gallo, remember though all this is speculation. I do agree that if he left us in free agency though it would likely be for New York or Washington.

Carmelo Anthony was born in New York. He is not from New York. You're not getting a hometown discount because NY isn't his hometown, his hometown is Baltimore where he has invested his own millions into programs here. Denver isn't trading Melo to NY who has 0 assets to trade back.

I basically said the same. I dont understand why people continually underestimate Washington DC when it is a major US market.

I doubt it would even be NY who gets Melo. New Jersey seems much more likely since 1 year from then they're going to be moving to Brooklyn, that place where Carmelo Anthony was born.:cool: New Jersey also has pieces to trade back unlike NY.

What people fail to understand.....if a player is set on going to a certain team theres nothing their current team can do about it. No matter who they try to trade him to he can just say he wont play for them. Its been done countless times. All a player has to do is tell the team wanting to trade for them is...I dont want to play for you. Players have forced thier way to other teams for years, this isnt a exception. If he only wants to play for NY he will force DEN to trade him there.

The FO pays him...He doesnt pay the FO....And theres no "clauses" in his contract that says he has command on where he wants to go...He'll be sent to a team that gives us a superstar back.

Mcdyess didnt want to be traded to Denver, but he still got sent here, and his contract bought out.

you can laugh at us all you want, but the fact remains your man has 65 mil on the table, which he isnt jumping at and hes putting his house on the market. I dont think you should be laughing at anyone. Your franchise player wants out. And no teams want a guy in a trade who doesnt want to be there. We've all been watching sports long enough to see what a unhappy superstar can do to a team.

And if you think your gonna get a superstar back you are delusional, look up every team that traded its franchise player in the history of the NBA. In every instance the franchise team never got equal value. So laugh away. Laugh him all the way out the door. Because hes got 1 foot in mine.

LOL @ Knicks fans....Desperate, because of their garbage *** team.


Melo has already stated he wants to stay, but he wants to make sure the team is able to win. He hasn't accepted the offer yet, because he's playing chess with the FO...He's making them put in work and get the right guys around him..

So I will keep laughing at your delusional dreams....Nuggets are not rebuilding, if we trade Melo, it';s for equal talent.

Well, no team would gut their best players for him and/or valuable assets for him to not have an extension already in place.

What that means, is its a lot like the Garnett trade in 2007. Garnett gave the okay to be traded to Boston (cuz he only was under contract until 2008), and Boston wanted him to agree to a 3 year extension before they'd give up over half of their team for him.

That's exactly what would happen if this situation ever gets this far, because no team would give up what they'd have to for Melo, and only have this next year guaranteed. No way.

Exactly why his move to "not sign" at the moment is more of an empty gesture. He wants to pressure the Nuggets to make a move for someone even though he has no intention of not signing.

Melo's camp actually mentioned towards the end of last season that he was going to approach the Nuggets about the extension. Hard to believe he's lost interest in the Nuggets since then. Once Kmarts max deal is off the books, and Billups' contract should be very reasonable......it frees up a lot of space for the Nuggets. They have always look to upgrade, but cap concerns have limited them.

07-03-2010, 11:14 PM
I'm thinking that this "a person with knowledge of the situation" is just some random a-hole who saw the Westword article about Melo selling his house and jumped to a conclusion. For now, all indications continue to strongly point towards Melo holding out on signing the extension to gain the upper hand in negotiations and force the FO's hand in terms of getting them to bring in some more significant help than they did last summer (some better players than, say, Malik Allen).

But none of the writers who usually have the best inside scoops on what's happening in Nuggetsland (Ben Hochman, Chris Tomasson, etc.) have anything about this. I chalk it up to pure, unfounded conjecture until I see it verified by a third party source who I trust.

they would have a huge hole at PG tho...SG too :P but who cares

Melo + favors or lopez+ another FA are incredible building blocks!

Frank Isola: A Nuggets source claims that Carmelo likely to re-sign with Denver. If I'm Knicks, I go after Tony Parker or Monta Ellis for now Twitter



While Wade, Bosh and James weigh their options, it’s clear that one piece of the puzzle that has been floated as a possibility this summer can absolutely be ruled out. That would be one of the teams in the LeBron-Wade hunt acquiring Carmelo Anthony from the Nuggets in a trade, either as a complementary piece to one of those superstars or as a substitute. “In absolute terms, there aren’t any possibilities of a summer trade [involving Anthony],” a person with direct knowledge of the situation told CBSSports.com Saturday. “That is laughable, laughable, laughable.”

I've talked to Carmelo Anthony that he needs to come out here," Stoudemire said. "I've talked to Tony Parker. Both guys are ready to join me if I decide to come here. So we will see if we can work it out."

I wonder if Stoudemire is telling the truth. Has he already talked to Melo to gauge his interest in NY? I don't see what the Knicks would offer that could beat out other teams' offers. For example (I am a Rockets fan and will use them for comparison purposes)
Which would the Nuggets rather accept:
Jeffries (Expiring)
Anderson(Expiring)
Battier(Defensive Stopper)
Hill(Young PF with loads of potential)
2011 and 2012 1st round picks of the Knicks
&
Possibly 2012 1st round pick of the Rockets.
To me, that is an attractive offer for the Nuggets

That is a good package. But first of all why dose everyone think the Rockets have the Knicks 2011 pick. They have the right to swap. Completly different. Also the pick is protected.

I think if the Knicks were to get involved this summer, it would most likely be 3 team deal, involving a S&T of Dlee, Curry's expiring and Wilson Chandler. Also the cap space would help as they contracts wouldnt have to match and they could take on a not so good contract.

And again, the only way I could see something like this happening is if Melo went to Denvers FO and requested a trade.

I understand that, but I'm assuming that the Rockets will have a better record thus swapping picks with the Knicks. As it stands right now, 09 Rockets > 09 Knicks. Knicks add Stoudemire and the Rockets add Yao. Still 10 Rockets > 10 Knicks

True, but the Id be shocked if the Knicks were done. They still could do plenty to improve. Also west is still better then the east by a solid margin, so its not all about record. With a healthy Yao, the Rockets probably are right in the mix as a team that should make the playoffs. But there a still plenty of good teams in the west and there is no guarantee that the Rockets make the playoffs. Obviously its the same for the Knicks, but in the East they should have a good chance to make the playoffs with the more moves they make.

I'm sorry NY fans, but your team is way too awful. Any player on NY + Lee wouldn't get it done. I suppose a 3 way trade may be possible, but I doubt it. I still say he will resign, but if he doesn't, the only way Melo plays for NY is gonna be in 2011 in FA.

If of course for some reason Carmelo does decline the extension, and asked to be moved to the east coast I wonder if a Speights + Iguodala + Lou Williams + 2012 1st would be better than what NY has to offer?

The Jokemaker
07-04-2010, 02:48 AM
One factor to remember. If Carmelo doesn't want to go to the team who can offer the better package (for example Houston) then that will severely diminish the offers the Nuggets get. No team is going to offer top players and picks for a midseason rental. If Carmelo isn't going to 100% resign with that team (in this case Houston), then Houston won't offer up the best possible package because they face the risk of losing Melo. If this happens, the Knicks offer suddenly doesn't look so bad and they actually have a shot at landing Melo. For comparison, a couple years ago the Atlanta Braves traded Mark Teixiera for Casey Kotchman which is hardly an equal trade in terms of talent. However like Melo, Tex was a free agent at the end of the year and had diminished trade value because it wasn't a guarantee he would resign with that team.

I dont understand why you would except an extension. test FA, see what there is to offer. why not. he is a max type guy, see what he can get.

For one thing, he likes Denver and he likes playing for the Nuggets.

For another, he stands to lose a ****load of money if he doesn't accept Denver's extension offer.

As it stands now, he's set to make $18,518,574 in the 2011-12 season if he doesn't opt out of his contract. And if he accepts the extension offer, which is reported as being $65,000,000, then he'll be averaging $21,666,667 per season in 2012-13, 2013-14, and 2014-15.

Enter the new CBA, which will almost certainly limit maximum salaries much more than they are now, probably in the area of $12-13 million. So being generous, let's call it 13, and say that in the same four seasons, rather than making a total of $83,518,574 million, he'd be making a total of $52,000,000, for a loss of $31,518,574 over that 4-year period. Even for someone as rich as Melo, that's a hell of a lot of money to walk away from.

And moreover, with an impending lockout a near certainty, if he opted out he's not even guaranteed to make that full $52,000,000, because he could well end up hung out to dry without a contract at all for an entire season.

Accepting the extension avoids the risk of that happening. It's the safest, surest choice he can make. It provides the most security and stability for his work, family, and financial situation. It provides continuity, and more chances to bring a championship home to the city he's played for his entire career.

I'm sure he's hopeful that by holding out on accepting the extension for the time being, he can strongarm the front office into making some bigger moves this offseason than they have tended to make in offseasons past. But at the end of the day, I'll be flat out shocked if he doesn't ultimately take it.

West and K-Mart are such radically different players that it's hardly worth comparing them. If any team were to try to pick either of them up, it would be for totally different reasons (namely, for offense if they targeted West, and for defense if they targeted Kenyon).

Since the Nuggets have a SF and C who combine for over 40 ppg, it meets their needs better to have a lockdown defender who doesn't need the ball between them. So in that sense I'd still probably take K-Mart over West for Denver. But it would be understandable for different teams to go the other way depending on how they're constructed. But I do agree with jimbob that West is overrated, and I also think K-Mart's underrated, and the difference between the numbers on their stat sheets is far greater than the difference in the quality of players they are.

This report comes from the one of the beat writers that cover the Nuggets for the Denver Post.


Nuggets all-star Carmelo Anthony is very serious about accepting the team's contract extension, but Anthony is still waiting to hear about the team's attempts to improve the frontcourt, a league source said today.

Also, the source said that Anthony won't play for Team USA this summer in the World Championships in Turkey. Anthony is getting married in New York on July 10 and then will spend the summer with his family.

Anthony, who has spent a lot of time this summer in the Los Angeles area, has also been concentrating on working out.

The contract extension is worth $65 million over three seasons. If he wasn't to accept it, he would be a free agent in the summer of 2011.

Last month at the NBA Finals, Anthony said of a potential contract extension, "We'll go to the table and see what's the best situation for me."

Of the Nuggets, he said, "We have pieces," adding that he would be happy with the addition of "one or two more pieces that'll work out." The Nuggets' nucleus is all under contract for next season.

Asked if the current Nuggets roster can win a championship, Anthony said: "Obviously it didn't happen this year. They definitely need to add something, definitely."

Anthony was elected as an All-Star Game starter last season and was named second-team all-NBA. However, the Nuggets lost in the first round of the playoffs. Two seasons ago, he led the Nuggets to the Western Conference finals.

Colangelo must be ripping his hair out about the Team USA situation. He said that if the players don't suit up for this year's world championships, they are going to be competing for the 2012 Olympics just to get a spot. But currently, there is no Wade, Melo, Bron, Bosh, Joe Johnson, or Stoudemire participating. Apparently his threat was hollow.

But, back on topic. I think Melo will stay with the Nuggets. He is a great player and with the addition of one more front court player the Nuggets will be a top 2 team in the West. A David West type of player, or if they were able to work out a S&T for a player of Bosh's caliber, they would be challenging LA for favorites out west. Imagine a Bosh/Melo/Billups top 3.

That talk actually made sense with LeBron's huge ego & his plan to become a sports billionaire marketed globally.


This whole nonsense just doesn't apply to Melo. Carmelo Anthony is not marketable to a broader audience. He lost that marketability with his incidents off the court which people still remember and hold against him. Melo is all about basketball, not trying to be a corporate sponsor to sell shoes to kids in Germany.

According to ESPN, Carmelo openly said he would like to play for the Knicks.

Also, Carmelo is not all about basketball. He wants to be an icon as well. Obviously he will never get global like LeBron, but he does have other interests as do many other basketball players. Carmelo recently started his own record label, Krossover Ent. I'm sure he would rather be in NY than Denver. I know he's from Baltimore, but face it, he's a city boy.

NBA players care about the city they're playing in a lot. Look at Chris Bosh, he said he would never want to play in Cleveland even if LeBron does resign there because "there's nothing to do there".
