There isnt any. Unless you can trade him for Kobe Lebron Wade or Dwight. Carmelo is just as big a Superstar as those guys. He is a top 5 player. And only a trade for a top 5 player is equal. But it never happens. Trading 2 top 10 players is a bit much. So my guess would be 2 top 20-25 players is a good value for Carmelo. Or a top 10 guy and a lower tier guy.

In your case Rose is a top 20 (somewhere in the 11-20 range depending on who you talk to) player and a deal would start with him. Might have to throw Noah in as well.

...Im glad to see someone give melo some credit ,including lebron ,my opinion is melo right now is the best ,well rounded player in the league because of his youth i'll say he's got a step on kobe, thats bein real. but no way would i trade mamba for him. kobe brings other things that no one has. best you could get is maybe top 5 or 6 to 10 guy and maybe a 15 and 20 and pick ...thats pushin it tho... you couldn't get what he's really worth...

You're not going to get equal value for him. The best you could get would probably be a package of good young players and expiring contracts. Thats why I think there's no way in hell they trade him, just trying to put a lil pressure on him to get this thing done.

He's a top 5 scorer in this league. With the tools he has under his belt, Melo could be the best scoring weapon in the league. A team would have to give up a lot for his service.

Melo is of course a top10 guy, i'd put him in my top 5.. anyway rumors want him to NY.. i'd love it but i don't think what knicks have might be enough.. curry's expiring and chandler must be part of the deal.. they might ask for a S&T with Lee or a trade exception that they might use to get another player from a team that wants to unload some contracts... also i don't know what's the situation with Kenyon Martin who should have a player option and i don't know what's happening with that.. if Denver lose Martin and want to replace him with a more offensive PF, NY has the best fit in Lee for the Nuggets..
knicks have always been interested in Lawson who has been named in a lot of trade rumors.. so there are a few pieces that both teams can use to make a trade... i think they could find a nice trade for both sides..

Durant needs more then 1 year to break into this group. Dirk is on the decline, Williams and Paul cant carry a team. If i had to pick someone to shoot my last shot in a game I take Melo over D-Will and Paul. Simple. If Durant can do it for a few more years he will supplant a few of those guys but 1 year isnt enough.

In your case Rose is a top 20 (somewhere in the 11-20 range depending on who you talk to) player and a deal would start with him. Might have to throw Noah in as well.

I have no interest in acquiring Carmelo Anthony. This thread is a spin off from a discussion from the Bulls thread. For Denver to acquire a draft pick in the deal and for it to mean anything, youd have to be assured of being a lottery team. It would be like NJ trading its core pieces AND a first.

But I agree, theres really not a scenario where a team has core pieces and would be willing to only have Carmelo Anthony...even though for some teams this makes sense because once you have him, you can build around him. A lot of teams are looking to be better in 2011 though.

What makes it equal value is that after this FA period is over, there will be multiple teams that want/need Anthony. Competitive bidding is what makes it equal value.

Your insane if you think melo is worth Taj Gibson and JJ Melo is a top 5-10 player in the league. I wouldn't trade Rose and Noah for Carmelo but that is what if I were Denver I would be looking for. Why the hell would Denver trade one of the best players in the league for bench players and a few draft picks.You really are underestimating one of the top players in the league.

Melo15
07-04-2010, 03:32 PM
Well the thing is he likely is going to stay in Denver.

But for the sake of the discussion it really depends on whether or not he would sign an extension with a team. If he's willing to sign an extension then it would require a lot of young talent and picks to get him (Like the Brandon Roy and Aldridge idea posted earlier). If he's not then it would take a young talented player and some high upside players then too (Brandon Roy and Nicolas Batum for example). Thats my opinion however and I will admit I am biased towards Melo because obviously he's my favorite player.

That's pretty funny... Melo has only been out of the 1st round ONE time. D. Williams and C. Paul have gone just as far in the playoffs. In fact, D. Williams has more often than not got them out of the 1st round.

Ok, now you my friend are truly overvaluing Carmello dude.

Phildelphia offer, Evan Turner could be a future star, while Iggy is a 20 ppg scorer

Portland, Roy is already a star in this league, while Aldridge is a 18/10 guy

ATL, are you ****ing serious? Johnson AND Smith? Gtfo

Minnesota, most reasonable offer, but doubt Melo signs with them, so its a fail.

Melo is a FA, why the **** would any team give up so much when he can be had in free agency? Denver really holds no cards here

But every offer here, you have teams giving their best two players for one, and it makes no sense

I think the only one Im pushing it on is Portland. Other than that, I think the value is comparable. Anthony is an elite player. He is the kind of player who can score anywhere on the court. He can score through contact. He is the kind of scorer that demands respect from the defense. Iguodala isnt a "get on my back and Ill carry you" guy. Iguodala is a nice player but, Anthony is an elite player.

Also, youre right. Turner could be great. But he's not an elite player and Carmelo Anthony is. This is a case of a bird in the hand being worth more than one in the bush.

i think his trade value is dependent on the situation. Melo is a top player in the game no question about it, but if he doesnt except the extension offer the burden is on the nuggests to get "something" in return for him, while the teams interested have more power to negotiate because of the pending free agency.

I don't think Melo gets dealt because the nuggets are going to want a ransom for him. He's going to be next years free agent prize

No, the burden is on the teams to bid against other teams.

2/1. LeBron

Carmelo is a prolific scorer, but I dont think he is a TRUE franchise player. Yes, he has the abilities but the leadership and ability to raise the level of the team is in question.

Billups rose the level of the nuggets last year.
George Karl rose the level of the team this year.

Without Billups & Karl, the Nuggets were just another mediocre team with an easy first round playoff exit.
