AlexKennedyNBA: Sources close to the situation don't expect Carmelo Anthony to sign an extension with the Denver Nuggets this summer.

AlexKennedyNBA: Anthony is leaning towards testing free agency next offseason, said sources on the same day that the Nuggets let go of Warkentien, Chapman.

After the reception Lebron got, no one is going to be stupid enough to try out "the decision" again.
Melo also doesn't strike me as such a media whore like Lebron.

Oh, maybe.
The major difference, however, is that unlike Cleveland, Denver isn't SO dependent on one player. It will hurt obviously if Melo leaves, but there was so much more to the Lebron incident. Given that Lebron was also considered a hometown hero and "one of them". Melo is just another player. A great player obviously, but I'd liken him more to Bosh in that sense.

Possibly.
I'd view Washington as a dark horse cause he grew up in Baltimore.
NY is the obvious favorite. Obviously big city/biggest stage and already has a star. I like Lopez and Harris more, but Amare is considered a more valuable player cause of his career accomplishments.

I think he gets traded. Better off getting two or three first rounders with a SF packaged then getting nothing in return.

No. Nene has an early termination option next year. If melo was to leave, I think Nene would opt out and still get paid good money somewhere else.

If you honestly think Noah and Deng and some late first round picks is the best the nuggets can do for Melo (top 5-6 player in the NBA) and Nene.........

This is why I like the way the Knicks are set up after this summer, they have money for players like Melo but it will no longer be a desperation move to save a franchise and they will be ok if he goes elsewhere, and if by some chance he decides to come Lebron better not count his rings yet.

everyone just discounts new jersey when we are moving to brooklyn and have a way better core than the knicks plus when melo comes next year amare will be like 29 or 30 and he has two bad knees

amare has maybe two good years left in him tops

plus even if we improve we are going to win like 30 something games and have another top five pick whereas the knicks will still have no draft picks

Great core nets fan..... I want to see that core win 20 games first. I wanna see the numbers that core puts up in games they actually win. Admit it the Knicks have a better team right now and there no reason to believe it won't be the same in a year. I know you are all excited your team is moving to brooklyn because u think it makes your team important but its not manhattan. You will still be the mets and islanders of the area.

Nets fan have been real agressive lately... I find this hilarious, the smallest dog always has the biggest bark. Knicks do have a pick next year and since playoffs are a strong possibility a swap (if necessary) with houston won't do much. Keep stockpiling picks, draft is very hit or miss, haven't you noticed the same teams are always in the lottery and only 1-2 are fortunate enough to geta franchise player and get out??? All your overrated young talent can keep getting you 25 wins.

Amare is 27 currently and I will admit the Nets have a nice core but so do the Knicks. I Understand being rivals but there so much NJ fans do not want to admit about the team across the hudson which is that they are much improved

Unfortunately, here goes another sad story for N.Y. Fans - just like the hype of Lebron going to N.Y you are about to embark on the same thing for C.Anthony.

Honestly I feel sorry for Knick fans to have to go through that disappointment again.

Good Luck though Knick Fans - maybe Melo likes paying those High Taxes in N.Y and would love the opportunity to go to a worse situation then what he has in Denver and have to battle the likes of Miami - Orlando - Boston - and Chicago instead of just worrying about LA.

But hey maybe you know something I don't?

Never said I think he is coming. The future is not as bleak as it was last year so cap space is more about flexibility than desperation. Melo probably won't come but there's always a chance he does though. It is arguable where the better situation is though with Billups having a few years left of being an upper echelon PG.

i wonder if they trade him b4 hand to get value and avoid the situation the cavaliers were in this year? IMO, the teams that can offer Denver a nice deal and have assets and cap are Chicago, New Jersey, New York, i don't think they would send him within the same conference.

Unlike Lebron, New York is home to Melo and his wife as well needs to be in New York if she wants to progress her MTV career.

Can't see why people bash the Knicks for failing to get Lebron. He had to choose from 6-7 teams. It made more sense to go to NY, but as the theories above say, perhaps it was a reason not to.

People can see that the Knicks are out and out favorites to get him and course they're gonna hate.

The Knicks were never favorites to get LeBron, Cleveland were favorites to keep him until they lost to Boston. Between the Cavs losing in the playoffs and LeBron signing with the Heat, I don't once remember the Knicks being out and out favorites to sign Bron. It was either the Bulls or Heat.

There is pretty much no competition for Melo, unless teams start clearing cap space in preparation of next summer. There won't be much point though... Pretty much everything is pointing towards Melo signing with the Knicks.

I don't think we were ever favorites for LeBron recently. Maybe 2 years ago, when the whole thing started, because we were looking like we were going to have the most cap space. Then Miami and Chicago came in the picture as more likely to land him, not to mention Cleveland, who seemed like having the biggest chance before the playoffs. There was a lot of LeBron to NY speculation going on a few days before the Decision, but it turned out to be nothing more than a smoke screen.

I agee. Melo is good, but he needs to become more well rounded and affect the game by more than just scoring. He's good don't get me wrong, but I've always considered him a more athletic and more popular Glen "Big Dog" Robinson.

This is completely different than the LeBron James situation because unlike LeBron, Carmelo actually said he would love to play in NY with Amare and Tony Parker. Plus he had his wedding in NY when he said that so there's more of a chance of him coming to NY than LeBron

kozelkid
08-03-2010, 09:20 PM
hey kozel would you give up noah, deng and picks for anthony and lets say nene?

That would be best case scenario for Bulls. Nene (when healthy), is a bargain at his current contract so getting him as well would be pretty damn impressive. And it's certainly debatable between him and Noah.

Exactly... The Knicks were never favorites to land LeBron.

The Cavs were always ahead of them and unless you were living under a rock for the past two months, pretty much everyone had the Bulls as the favorites to land LeBron before reports came out that he had chosen the Heat. The Knicks were never regarded as his number 1 option.

The name of the game is to score the ball. You act like it's a bad thing or not impressive. Bottom line, he's one of the most prolific scorers in the league. He's top 5 in that department (hell you can make the case that he's top 3). That alone makes him a top 10 player, then add the fact that he's also a pretty damn good rebounder for his position, and he still is one of the most valuable players in this league.

Not this off season, but in the years leading up to it, all everyone was saying was how Lebron was going to NY in 2010. Then when it became clear that he wanted to play for a contender, he started weighing his options. IMO knick fans are setting them selves up for another disappointment if they think Melo to the knicks is in the bag.

when wade and lebron commited it was mia, cavs bulls NY

how did the Bulls become favorites over NY after Wade and Bosh signed. Bulls were already ahead of NY according to most writers. Truth is Lebron and the NY media would have been a nightmare and he knew that. I think Melo would be a better fit in NY.

A lot of things didn;t work NYs way... the draft pick was a flop, all the contract year players underperformed and a bunch of teams cleared space. No one expected the Bulls to have that space, and noone could have foreseen miami being able to sign 3 players when the knicks were the favorites. I think if miami was unable to lure all 3 FAs there is a very good chance he would have went to NY. I also believe the NY media and all the drama Lebron and his crew bring (mom, crew) helped scare Lebron off NY.

Bulls had more of a chance than NY the whole offseason. And no one figured Miami, because that was before they had room for 3 guys and people assumed Wade would be best with a big man like Bosh or STAT.

Besides, that's not even the main point. I'm saying the Knicks were never the favorites the whole offseason and got very little recognition as an option. Which is true. Bulls and Cavs got much more attention. Maybe the Heat didn't initially, but that's irrelevant because the Knicks didn't either.

I say he goes to either Nets...Knicks.... OR Wizards.... and given that it would only make sense to go to the team that wins the most games out of those three.... I think the Knicks win more than both of those teams next year although the Nets will be much better... plus now to win a championship you need a great threesome and CP3 said he wants to go to the Knicks also... JUST SAYIN Knicks probly have the best shot as of now but who knows what will happen between now and next June

AlexKennedyNBA: Sources close to the situation don't expect Carmelo Anthony to sign an extension with the Denver Nuggets this summer.

AlexKennedyNBA: Anthony is leaning towards testing free agency next offseason, said sources on the same day that the Nuggets let go of Warkentien, Chapman.

http://twitter.com/AlexKennedyNBA

If Melo comes to NY great....if not..great....I can't go through with the same ride Lebron put us through. Now, Lebron will never be accepted in the Garden as an opponent as he has been prior to this year.

Melo has lived in NY....he knows not to go through all the hoopla.

juggla53

Oh, maybe.
The major difference, however, is that unlike Cleveland, Denver isn't SO dependent on one player. It will hurt obviously if Melo leaves, but there was so much more to the Lebron incident. Given that Lebron was also considered a hometown hero and "one of them". Melo is just another player. A great player obviously, but I'd liken him more to Bosh in that sense.

gotta dissagree with you there, IMO melo is a guy you can build a championship caliber team around, id put him closer to lebron then bosh. Melo may not be quite as important to denver as lebron was to cleveland but hes pretty damn close, denver was awful before he arrived and if he left their team would plummet to the bottom of the west. Billups is on the decline and k-mart hasnt been the same player from his early days in NJ and i cant see a playoff team being built around JR smith. if he doesnt sign an extension then denver will have to try to make a move in order to convince him to stay which could be difficult due to their lack of young talent because i dont see this team as its currently structured being able to beat LA.

This summer paved the way for stars leaving, and little teams getting trade exceptions that will end up doing nothing in most cases.

If Melo knows where he wants to go and that team has the assets to make a deal, then why not?

This is completely different than the LeBron James situation because unlike LeBron, Carmelo actually said he would love to play in NY with Amare and Tony Parker. Plus he had his wedding in NY when he said that so there's more of a chance of him coming to NY than LeBron

All of you Knicks fans...Please expose where "MELO ACTUALLY SAID HE WOULD LOVE TO PLAY IN NY WITH AMARE AND TONY PARKER"???

There were points during the season that players said they didnt watch film or practice different things to get better because kiki didnt feel it was worth it he was a joke. And the knicks not really having draft picks doesnt help because they cant exactly improve unless melo comes and why wouldnt he choose the better team across the river.

Brook put up 19 and 9 because he had to, the team won 12 games when he did so, clearly not a good idea to have him as the first option. Morrow is a decent signing, not something that puts you over the top ask GS, and Outlaw is just a ridiculous absurd and ******** signing Nets fans are REALLY overrating him. Lee got his numbers stat stuffing on an awful team, was one of the worst defenders at his position in the NBA (the larger more physical Amare, even though not a good defender, is a huge upgrade in the paint on D and offense), Amare is also a leader and a winner and regardless of what people that hate NY say, when healthy is a top 12 player in the NBA. He has also played at least 79 games 3 of the last 4 seasons so there is no reason to say he wont continue to do that.

no team can possibly put together a more "talented" team than the heat...but yes that is a contender. That would be the best 1-2 behind the Lakers and the Heat with a MUCH better supporting cast ( players 4-12) than the Heat. In fact that would be a close series, with Miami the favorites.

except you are missing the point. IF melo is a knick (hypothetical) the order top 2 players (2 stars and a solid supporting cast, which knicks have btw, are usually what a team needs to compete) on a team goes like this:

Lebron-Wade
Kobe-Gasol
Melo-Amare

Howard/Rose does not work for this scenario since they are on different teams...

I said Dwight and Rose because I think the Bulls and Magic would probably be favored anyway. New York is in for a big dissapointment, im not sure what your expectations are in regards to Amare, but theres a reason why alot of fans think the max Amare got is redicilous.

so you take Derrick Rose over Melo AND Amare?? Ill take Amare for 20 million over Lee or Boozer for 16, it really doesn;t make that big of a difference when guys like Petro are getting almost 4 mill a year and guys like Outlaw are getting 7.

That's were your wrong. The Knicks had guys like Marbury, Curry, Jeffries, Jerome James malike Rose. So how is the possibility or getting a top 10 talent be disappointing ? The fact that were in the conversation to get a guy like Melo is far from Disappointing. If we don't get Melo Can't miss what you never had. If we do get melo well :D

Melo over Rose is a though one, depends on the team and if that team is a contender or not. On Amare, just in last years playoffs he had more than one game where he just grabbed 3 rebounds, hes not a good defender I actually watched in frustration because theres times when this guy obviously just goes through the motions.

Pau and Bynum were just too much for him. This is the same guy that averaged 26 and 10 the last 3 months of the season. Not saying he is the Knicks savior but he is a very big rebuilding piece and when that other superstar decides to join him Knicks will be a contender. Nash and Amare made the Conference Finals held their own, why cant Melo and Amare do the same?

The name of the game is to score the ball. You act like it's a bad thing or not impressive. Bottom line, he's one of the most prolific scorers in the league. He's top 5 in that department (hell you can make the case that he's top 3). That alone makes him a top 10 player, then add the fact that he's also a pretty damn good rebounder for his position, and he still is one of the most valuable players in this league.


The dude shoots more than any of the other top scorers. More shots more points usually. If he shot higher tha 45% from inside the arc then that would be a diffrerent story. All those extra misses are possible points his teammates might score. The name of the game is to win not just score. You don't have to score as much if you have a great defense and don't turn the ball over much.

Name me some pure scorers that have won championships

If you mean Brook Lopez then you're a bit off on this one. Lopez, at this pace, is gonna be an allstar center in the near future. Gallo doesn't play the same position and is a completely different player. But for comparison purposes, Lopez has Gallo right now, by miles.

Brooklyn is where he is born. Here in NYC everyone follows the knicks. brooklyn Nets may win some fans over, but they will still be reguarded as the NJ Nets. Melo grew up a Knick fan.

I think he will be in a Knicks uniform. I dont think other teams will trade for him because he will bold for NYC.

I wish DAL could get him but even after all our FA's leave after the season we'll still be right around the cap for '11-'12. We'll still have Terry's $11 mil, Marion's $8 mil, Kidd's $8.5 mil, etc. on the payroll for '11-'12, ugh. If we could miraculously pull off a sign-and-trade somehow, but the only way will probably be to dangle Terry's and Kidd's expirings and DEN is not going to want them. Who the hell would want those two geezers? We're screwed.

Lopez is a pretty over rated center. I'm sorry, the man can't be that good if his team wins 12 games. He's not overly athletic, he doesn't rebound well for a center, and his blocking ability is slightly above average, nothing more. In 37 min per game he put up 8.6 rebounds per game. Amar'e had more than that and people are bashing his rebounding. Lol. Love the bias there. Oh, and scoring 18.8 points per game isn't that hard when your team has nobody else to take the shots! He shot 50 percent from the field, that's below average for his position.

The only reason he put up good numbers this year was because he had a higher usage rate then he rightfully should have had. He's a quality starting center, nothing more. Stop making him out to be this perenial all star. He'll be lucky to make 2 of them in his career. He's an average center defensively, and an above average to good center offensively. Problem is, with the lack of elite athleticism he's probably very close to being as good as he'll ever be. I don't mind people saying he's a quality center, but don't go crazy saying he's going to be this awesome force for years.

you guys are ******** and i am done arguing with people that think that the nets dont have a better future than the knicks its not even close so have fun with amare and his bad knees and his overrated self, he played in a system that inflated offense system and with an amazing point guard, and sorry raymond felton isnt even good enough to start over at least 3/4 of the leagues point guards maybe even worse because my opinion is that he is a bench player

It's funny this guy has an inferiority complex. Out of all the teams in the league THE NETS are the only team in which the Knicks can talk trash to....so for you to argue that your 12 win team has a better upside than a team that won more games than you did last year and had a better offseason than you did is just you being a HATER.

Bulls- can do a sign and trade
Jazz- has 17.8 mil coming off the books with Andrei Kirilenko, CJ Miles (3.7mil)
Blazers- have Joel Przybilla(7.4mil),Andre Miller (ETO,7.8mil), Rudy Fernandez(ETO, 2.1mil), Nicolas Batum (ETO, 2.1mil)
Hornets- Peja Stojakovic (14.2mil), Darius Songaila (4.8mil), Julian Wright (RFA 2.8mil will most likely declined it) and David West (EPO, 8.2mil will make less money next year)

All teams can dish out a max contract. It will be battle if he becomes a free agent. Don't think its a guarnteed that New Yorks gets him just because he's from New York. With the new CBA, I don't think he a be able to get 20 +mil a year.

This is not a credible source. Even if he did say this, Denver will have a new FO and will make some moves to improve the team. Melo is a star. Kroenke is a huge b-ball fan and axed his FO once he heard this 'rumor'.

Denver will have a plan and bring in the pieces to make a championship team, or trade him to a team that gives us quality players back, or a ton of high draft picks (this is NOT going to be the Knicks- it just won't happen).

If West does not opt out... which he probably wont, Hornets have around 9 million to spend if I'm not mistaking. If they trade West or West just leaves, I'm not sure you can call the Hornets a much better option than the Knicks either. Jazz have Deron, Al, Okur and Milsap signed for around 47 million so they don't have cap either. If portland keeps Oden they have 50+ tied up for Oden, Roy, Camby, Mathews and Aldridge...

You can't just count up the expirings and think thats what your team can offer, many teams are already over the cap to begin with.

I forgot to mention that Marcus Thornton will be up for a payday too, unless you guys want to let him go, he will probably cost 4-5 million. So to have space for a max, West would have to be traded and Marcus be let go. So in this case you are also significantly slimming the talent level and not making the Hornets that good of a place to win.

Hornets roster as is is better. please explain to me how they have 22 million though and STILL have a better roster than the Knicks when they do....
If the cap is 57 million
Pail - 16.4
Okafor - 12.6
West- 7.5
Posey - 7
Brackins, Pondexter, Gray - 4
Collison I think can be resigned after Melo because he is restricted.
Thornton - assume he gets 4 you guys wont let him walk
1st round pick + cap hold -3

thats about 53-54 million....
I highly doubt you will be able to trade Posey for an expiring this year, so West (trading him for an expiring wont be that easy) and thornton would have to be let go and you guys would still be a little short of the max. Add the fact that Paul doesn't HAVE to stick around the year after Melo is a free agent and can possibly join forces with him elsewhere, the Hornets are far from an ideal place for Melo.

Yeah you is rite about the cap and I'm wrong. But don't think the hornets can't do a sign and trade type deal and don't think the hornets don't have a shot in this. Most of the players but Amare have sign for 14.5 or just about. Plus they have some teams that mite be willing to take Posey or Okafor for a young and up in comers.

Melo is getting max, only reason Lebron, Wade and Bosh didn't is because they wanted to play together and take paycuts. I'm, not discounting any team from having a shot at Melo, just saying the Knick roster is solid for him because they don't really have to give up any of their core to get him, while most teams would.

What do you think is going to happen? I firmly believe that if Carmelo Anthony does not sign his 3 year extension with the Denver Nuggets he will definitely be a New York Knickerbocker in 2011!

"Anthony is leaning towards testing free agency next offseason, said sources

on the same day that the Nuggets let go of Warkentien, Chapman."

AlexKennedyNBA: Sources close to the situation don't expect Carmelo Anthony to sign an extension with the Denver Nuggets this summer.

The Blazers should get a deal done for Paul by the deadline then go after Melo in a sign and trade next summer, not to crazy sounding but it could be possible.

How about a Paul, Roy, Melo wing with Oden in the Paint. Im sure Aldridge,Bayless,Batum,Miller, Pryzbilla and a few others would be gone along with picks but crazier things have happened, take Miami for instance.

Melo is getting max, only reason Lebron, Wade and Bosh didn't is because they wanted to play together and take paycuts. I'm, not discounting any team from having a shot at Melo, just saying the Knick roster is solid for him because they don't really have to give up any of their core to get him, while most teams would.

Also Boozer took 14.5. We really don't know how much the max would be at this point. With the new CBA it could be 14.5 or cheaper. Of course he is going to get a max deal but how much we really don't know. And you can see that its not just about money. Its about winning which is why alot of teams can get Melo if he doesn't sign.

He's going to NYC for sure to team up CP3 & Amare. They'll be good but nothing like what has been created down in south beach.

Don't be fooled by bogus "inside sources." Melo has been secluded on Honeymoon status this whole time so wherever this so-called inside info is coming from aint him!

If he has an agent with at least half of brain, and I understand that he does, he will sign the extension before the NBA passes the new CBA which will limit how much $$ max players can get going forward. But whats the rush, he's got all year to do it? You guys act like if he doesn't sign today that the sky is falling.



.....in the meantime Im sure he's quite content to watch his honey get a tan from the island sun as thirsty teams fantasize about a pipedream that will never be fulfilled!

oh well, hopefully the league goes into a lockout. the way it is ran is a joke. multiple rumors of refs rigging the game, players trying to get away with murder in fa/demanding trades and if you're not a huge market team, the likelihood of you winning is very small. something needs to change.
