"Remember, if the Nuggets trade Melo and rebuild, there's really no point in them keeping Billups either. Could be two All-Stars on market," Hollinger wrote on his Twitter page.

i think nugs are going to make out the best. ive said this before and been critisized, but melo making this known is better than bron and bosh stringin their teams along for over a yr and then just bouncin for nothing.

its not the most mature move by melo, but he is helping out the nugs way more than just keepin his mouth shut and waiting til the offseason. the nugs get some value out of him this way. i actually applaud what hes doing. he knows he is leaving next yr anyways, so why not let everyone know now.

Honestly I don't think Melo and Billups are leaving Denver. I think we are all witnessing Media Hype (Just like the whole Kobe Bryant leaving LA a few years back / wasn't he linked to Chicago during that era?)

Melo is not going to N.Y despite his "possible" interest and "ties". Melo has the best shot to win in Denver. He has the right pieces around him

C-Nene
PF-Harrington
SF-Melo
SG-Affalo
PG-Billups
6th- JR Smith / Martin / Anderson

Cmon man that team is scary. I would put them right behind the Lakers in the West! You don't go from being a possible #2 in the West to becoming the "New Minnesota Timberwolves".

It will be sad if they break up because that team is so close. I'd say bring in some pieces to accomadate Melo and Billups and make everyone else expendable.

Melo - Just stay in Denver (Make your money and compete)
N.Y = BLACK HOLE (need I say more)
N.J = Horrible situation in which the good pieces you're looking at won't be there once you're on board
Houston = You have a better situation in Denver
Orlando = This would be sick but highly doubtful

Either way / I just don't see Melo or Billups going anywhere. NBA is just bored now because all the FA hype has died down.

If Portland can get Billups that would be some ****.

They are definately an interesting trade partner. They have the young talent that could get a deal done. Roy-Batum-Aldridge is a great start. Billups and a healthy Oden could put the Blazers over the top. Fun but a little far-fetched though.


Rockets trade Brooks, Martin and Battier for Melo and Billups.

That's a very interesting trade. Brooks and Martin are both young enough to make it interesting. It really comes down to who ends up with the leverage. Will Melo agree to sign an extention with the Rockets? That's a real issue for teams.

How does Melo have a better situation in Denver? He would get so much endorsement money from China it would be sick. There is no state income tax in Texas so that saves hime MILLIONS ever year. Plus Houston has one of the best run franchises in the NBA, as far as Management goes. Most would agree, depending on what the Rockets would have to give up, he would be alot closer to a championship than he is now.

If Melo's gone, I'll take that deal. Would feel horrible about trading Chauncey, but if it's rebuilding time, the best course of action is to truly blow it up and get as much young talent and as many picks and as much cap space as possible in the process.

I think Raptors are going to be #5 in the draft unless we get into the top 3.

I this this draft is deep and there are 2 great PG's in the draft with Ivring and Knight but I think Billups can help the rookies on the team develop and help out Jarrett Jack.

Only thing I might have a problem doing this is if Ivring were to slip to us. He's projected to be as good as CP3 and he would fit well on the team with guys like Bargnani, Derozan and Davis improving. It would be a legit team if all reach their potential along with Irving.

I think Portland would be a good trade partner and could offer a good trade package:

Portland sends:
Andre Miller (Former Player, Expiring Contract, could be traded for additional assets)
Luke Babbitt (#16 overall)
Eliott Williams (#22 overall)
Rudy Fernandez (Which could be traded for CHI or BOS 2011 #1)

Denver trades:
Chauncey Billups
Sheldon Williams (or any filler since Williams was just signed)

Portland would have a consolidated rotation/roster and Denver gets essentially 3 first round picks and Miller for Billups.

It's painful, but it really is the best thing to do. I wish my Kings had tried to rebuild immediately after their window closed, but they tried to stay competitive. The Pacers also did that, and have been suffering for it ever since. The Suns are probably going to be the next team to go down that road.

Other than Irving or Knight, I don't like any other PG's out there.

Raptors need a passing PG and Irving fits that description but he is probably going top 3. Knight is a scoring PG and that would take away the development of other players on the team.

The pick I offered is top 3 protected anyways. Billups will also help hte development of all our your players a lot faster.

Lakers:

Billups
Kobe
Melo
Odom
Pau

Every single player on the court could make plays for themselves and others. every. single. one.

Lakers would have three of the clutchest players in the NBA in Kobe and Melo. Fish off the bench gives them four of the clutchest in the league.

Chauncey Billups
Stephen Jackson
Gerald Wallace
Tyrus Thomas
Nazr Mohammed

I'd be very happy. Doubt it happens though.

if they do infact do this expect this:



(David Stern voice) And the number one pick goes to....the denver nuggets


lol this is so crazy because these two teams (cavs and nuggets) 7 years ago were so excited with the picks they got thinking that they were set for the next decade. especially denver because theu never in a million years expected melo to slip to them i mean who really expected detroit to pick milicic. i mean both players came to their team and double their teams wins. and now they are at the same spot they were in 03 at the bottom tryin to rebuild you have to feel bad :sad2:

I heard that Melo wants to be traded to 1 of 3 teams, the Nets, Kings or Wolves. This is something that I think works http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=29axy4s

Lets get serious all I hear us Knicks fans hating on Raymond Felton. All i hear is knicks need this pg or this guy you have Raymond Felton who is a pretty good point guard. Also I believe the Nets have the package to get Melo and Billups.

Like I just said Knicks don't need a PG they have a good young lotsof potnetial in Raymond Felton, I doubt Chauncey goes to LA, Derek Fisher. Jameer Nelson could be a reason for not going to Orlando and I would consider Houston and Portland no other team on you list.

I heard one Knick fan say that Raymond Felton was pretty much the best player on the Bobcats last year. It was pretty embarrassing.

lmao i remember that thread EVERYONE jumped on that guy haha. i think d'antoni does magic with point guards. like who saw duhon putting up 20+ assist games? i think felton is going to have a career year this season though.

you just have to remember that the term 'fan' is short for fanatic.

most of us Nets fans are pretty realistic though. We understand and accept our position of being a team assembled of lots of young talent and draft picks. It keeps us in the running to pounce anytime a quality player becomes available - but not desperate to do so because our future is bright regardless(only one way to go after a twelve win season right?).


this isn't like the Lebron situation - I doubt anyone is bitter towards Carmelo however it shakes out(besides Nuggets fans that is - maybe Knicks fans too).

unless he says the bulls fans have a chance we all no what will happen we will see a million and one sigs with melo number 15 for the bulls and here how its the only team with a REAL shot of getting him and then he will become overrated and selfish
