The Denver Nuggets are having serious discussions about a four-way trade that would land Carmelo Anthony with the New Jersey Nets, according to sources with knowledge of the negotiations.

The proposed deal, sources said, also would involve the Utah Jazz and the Charlotte Bobcats. It would deliver Nets rookie forward Derrick Favors, Jazz veteran Andrei Kirilenko and multiple first-round picks to Denver in exchange for their franchise player, potentially bringing a resolution to Anthony's uncertain future before the Nuggets hold their first practice of the new season.

Sources told ESPN.com that the deal, which has yet to be finalized, also would send former All-Star point guard Devin Harris to Charlotte, with Bobcats forward Boris Diaw moving to Utah.

The four teams, said one source close to the talks, are "seriously engaged" after extensive talks Thursday.

Shoot, I thought the Sixers would be in this deal.

But Billy King has been the GM for all of 1 summer and already is back to his multi team trading ways. 4 team deals are his specialty.

So the Jazz suffered for the longest time under a bad contract for an overpriced player, and they will finally follow that up by trading his expiring contract for an overpriced player on a bad contract.

:facepalm: if this has any grounds for the Jazz.

Maybe there is a trade in the works, but I don't believe the above scenario because of what I just said about the Jazz, and that the Nets would be left with trash at PG.

If the Jazz are rumored to be involved, the trade is not happening. Fact.

whenever we pull a trade, its always after an 'unconfirmed' team shows interest, or a 'second team enters the frame' (the al jefferson trade) or the gm pulls it off without any prior warning.

If this happens, it will be against the style of our gm lets just say

This would be a bit of redemption for Charlotte if this goes down. I don't get why Utah wants in on this deal unless they feel like Diaw puts them over the top.

if its AK for Diaw straight up, then we save over 8 million in salaries this year, getting us way under the luxury (we may even be able to use our 6.5 million trade exception at the deadline).

We'd get back a similar player to AK, whose more suited to filling some time behind Milly at the 4 due to his size. Although, an expiring AK in a contract year would be better, I get the trade for the savings.

Diaw expires in 2012, so I dont get why people are calling it an ugly/huge/long contract)

Yes the Nets would be putting up the first rounder along with Utah I believe, seriously is Melo really gonna sign onto a team that won 12 games last year that is trading away its starting PG and top prospect along with picks? If he does clearly this isnt about winning.

Exactly so of their 2 best players they lose 1 in Harris. They lose Favors who was their prize for being so bad last year and future picks. Jordan Farmar would be their PG

Again why would Melo sign off on that? He may as well stay in Denver and at least try to challenge the Lakers

While his PG situation is bad, that can be corrected. Tony Parker I'm sure is looking at this as an opportunity.
Also, Melo never had a Center like Lopez before.

the revolving door continues at charlotte. every player must never have a tenure of 3 + years with teh bobcats

Yeah but if the Bobcats can get Devin Harris and only give up Diaw (which I'm pretty skeptical of), why not?

shep33
09-24-2010, 02:13 PM
Wow, Charlotte gets a lot better, although I think people underestimate Diaw, he's a very valuable piece just due to his versatility. Still causes mismatch problems. Harris is good, but the experiment with him being there wasn't very successful. I know he was banged up and stuff last year, but still when you have a record like that I think everyone outside of Lopez is expendable.

Murphy + Lopez = one of the best rebounding front courts in the league, with Melo at the 3, who is also a great rebounder. Lopez and Melo can both score we know that, but Murphy is also a very capable scorer when asked...can hit the 3. So that frontcour is actually very very good, probably top 5 in the league... problem lies in the backcourt. Williams is good, and I really like the kid, but how good is he when surrounded by a team with much greater ability than last year? I mean he could be even better, which is very possible, but it still remains a question mark. Then obviously the biggest weakness would be Farmar starting... as a Laker fan I appreciate Farmar's contributions to the team, totally. However, he's from what I've seen in LA, a shoot first guard. Now if that team can somehow get CP3... wow. With just Melo though, I don't know how good they can be, not contenders yet. But if they add CP3... arguably the best team in the east up there with Miami and Boston

CP3
Williams/Morrow
Melo
Murphy
Lopez

the nets with melo and guttin favors and harris would be probably have a 25 win season

JJNation21
09-24-2010, 02:14 PM
This is a sweet deal for the Nets, Injury Prone Harris plus 19 year old favors and some picks for a top 5 player....and rag on the nets all you want but 22 year old Lopez is a top 5 center and will only get better (im not remotely crazy enough to say he will ever be better then D. Howard) and murphy, outlaw, T-will, and Morrow are all solid pieces throw in Melo and Avery Johnson as coach and this is a playoff team. Is this team gunna win a Ring no but with Murphys expiring contract plus the excess money they already have and the nets should be able to add some good players next year, and this time players will actually want to come to the team with Melo on it.

Also, Melo will sign an extention for 3 years so he is covered for the lockout, he will be closer to his wife, and if things dont work out he can change teams at 29 its a win win for him and the nets cause they now have 3 years to put pieces around him

09-24-2010, 02:26 PM
I'm still skeptical that he'll sign an extension... however, if there is a team to take a chance, why not the Nets?

Really they're coming off one of the worst seasons in NBA history, so they couldn't get any worse. They have a billionaire owner, who took a huge gamble in buying one of the worst franchises in sports at the time. So IMO, if Melo doesn't sign an extension I still think they're fine. What I do think will happen is that Melo will play this year, the Nets get into the playoffs, probably out in the 1st or 2nd round, then Melo does his recruiting.

Gotta remember Murphy's expiring can be used to pave way for another great player. Now if New Jersey can really work some magic and get Melo, then pry CP3 out of New Orleans by the deadline, for say... Murphy's extremely valuable expiring, and a couple of young pieces (i.e. Farmar and Williams), plus picks (if they have any left)... why not give it a shot?

Trade is def interesting.

Utah saves money

Charlotte is crazy lucky and getting a steal

Denver gets a ton of picks and Favors

Nets get melo

Melo gets to lose a ton of games this year.

I cant imagine him signing a contract on what ifs. What if the Nets sign a big FA next year or the year after. What if they dont? He is screwed and could be for a long time.

I dunno if i was him i wouldnt sign it, i would stick to my guns and try to get to Chicago or the Knicks. With a trade its Chicago, if he waits till next year and becomes a FA its prob the Knicks.

The Nets would be dumb to do this because they lose Harris, Favors, and Picks! I feel that it would be easier for the Nets to trade for Chris Paul. Trade for Chris Paul and then tell Melo to sign with the Nets in the offseason which would be a win-win situation for Melo and the Nets. Even if the Nuggets trade Melo to any other team in the league, Melo has the power of any trade because he can easily just say no I will not sign a contract with that team you trade me to. So if The Nets can convince Anthony to wait until next offseason and go after Chris Paul, then next year the Nets can have a team of Paul/Anthony/Lopez

Nets wont be able to trade for CP3 in 2011. :laugh:

They have nothing that will interest New Orleans unless they give New Orleans, Brook Lopez. If they aren't giving up Lopez for Melo, I doubt they would for CP3.

So New Jersey thinks parting with Harris, and going with Farmar is a better option? :facepalm: Carmelo doesn't make shooters around him better a la LeBron due to PG abilities. Carmelo needs scorers/defenders around him to take pressure off of him, not shooters. Harris fits perfectly, hes a scorer/defender who can excel as a #2/#3 option. They would have to rely on Williams to go back to the PG position(what he played in college) for stretches during the game.

D.J. and Farmar split time at the point would be cool.

That would be horrible.

Do you even watch basketball? :confused:

Farmar is an inconsistent offensive player who cant run a team at the PG position. Hes proven hes an off the ball PG, considering he'd rather shoot than create for his teammates. Hes been doing this for awhile now. Hes a mediocre passer. Augustin is literally the same player except hes a major defensive liability, which is why he doesn't get playing time.

New Jersey is better off signing Iverson and letting him run the PG than splitting time between 2 backup PG's.

Melo would have a much better team if he just stays.

The Nets would be dumb to do this because they lose Harris, Favors, and Picks! I feel that it would be easier for the Nets to trade for Chris Paul. Trade for Chris Paul and then tell Melo to sign with the Nets in the offseason which would be a win-win situation for Melo and the Nets. Even if the Nuggets trade Melo to any other team in the league, Melo has the power of any trade because he can easily just say no I will not sign a contract with that team you trade me to. So if The Nets can convince Anthony to wait until next offseason and go after Chris Paul, then next year the Nets can have a team of Paul/Anthony/Lopez

The Hornets made it clear they aren't trading CP3 anytime soon. CP3 holds more value to New Orleans than Melo does for Denver, considering they dont have the freedom to rebuild the following offseason and CP3 is under contract for 2 more seasons.

You think New Orleans would trade Darren Collison just so they can acquire Devin Harris in a CP3 trade? Seriously.:facepalm: I understand you're a Nets fan but think out your posts.

Most shocking with the scenario is Charlotte sending out Diaw and getting back Devin Harris. Talk about a ripoff.

The Nets would also get D.J. Augustin. (http://twitter.com/Al_Iannazzone)


They also send Devin Harris and Jarvis Hayes' rights to Charlotte and Quinton Ross to Utah and in return they get Anthony and DJ Augustin.

It makes no sense whatsoever.

If Carmelo would sit back and watch NJ trade away picks/Favors/Harris just to acquire him, and then sign his big extension before the new CBA destroying their remaining cap room. He'd be a fool. I dont think he truly realizes that hes being overvalued by New Jersey because they need a Franchise Player to sell to the fans when the Barclays Center opens up.


Why does Utah need Devin Harris? They played Deron Williams off the ball for stretches when they had Fisher, but Williams needs the ball in his hands to run their offense since nobody else on their team can create their own shot with efficiency. Harris cant play the 2 because he can't shoot worth a lick, he can score but not shoot.


Nuggets really need to just let Melo play this whole season out and let him walk. Teams really know they are desperate.

That's a pretty good team right there.

Actually that makes a lot of sense. Iverson/Melo complement each other, and are close friends anyways. The question would be if Iverson has anything left in the tank, or if what we saw in Philly last season is what we'll see from now on.

When you acquire a scorer like Melo, you're going to have to expect ball movement will suffer. You dont need a pass first PG running the team, considering your #1 option can create his own shot and doesn't need to be set up in the position to do so each time they run an offensive set. Guys like Melo & Dirk are unique in that aspect.

TWill can create his own shot as well, he just has to improve on his shooting which will kill him in the longrun if he doesn't improve.

Murphy gets his points/rebounds no matter who is running the PG position.

Lopez does as well, but a legit #1 option will make him more effective IMO. He wont have to take too many shots to lower his FG%.

There is not anything New Jersey could realistically put together to acquire CP3 without becoming much worse in the longrun.

NO doesn't want nor need Troy Murphy's expirer.
TWill doesn't hold value to NO now that they have Ariza.

It would revolve solely around Harris, Lopez, & Favors amongst draft picks.

Why wouldnt they want Murphy's expiring when the owner is trying to add payroll, he doesnt want any luxury tax. So they would get 12 million in cap space, a couple of draft picks, T-Will can play the Ariza plays the 3, and so forth and so on...but this wont happen anyway so its no need in us going back and forth, but the Nets still have numerous pieces for future trades

Wrong once again.

1. Why would New Orleans want Murphy? They have 0 need to use him since if they move CP3, they're conceding competing for a Playoff spot. Murphy's value as an expirer is for teams looking to go to the Playoffs. Dampier's value was an expirer was for teams looking to waive him/stash him away to clear cap room. Not to mention they'd still be at the Luxury Tax with adding on his salary for 1 year. They were trying to dump salary(Posey, Okafor) not gain expirers.

2. Ariza and TWill could play together. The thing is teams wouldn't want 1, if they already had the other. They cancel each other out on the court because they do similar things. Would you want Andre Miller when you already have Devin Harris? Would you want Tyrus Thomas when you have Derrick Favors? Would you want Cousins when you have Lopez? Think about it. They have their own value, but they cant excel when their skill sets aren't featured but shared with others.

3. Those draft picks are completely irrelevant considering NO's hand isn't forced into making any CP3 deal. Cleveland/Toronto's hands were forced because their Franchise players each had left. NO isn't in that position now. Those picks would be headed to Denver anyways if they in fact acquired Melo.

Hes not doing that because CP3 isn't a *****. He talked with management and they've started making moves to put a team together that can go to the Playoffs next season. They weren't trying to do this beforehand.

I'd say right now there is a 90% chance that he wont do so in 2012. The relocation to Kansas City or St.Louis will probably go down around that time. Basketball will never be popular in New Orleans. My parents alma mater UNO had to move to Division 3 from the Division 1 Sun Belt Conference due to the lack of interest in basketball.

Not entirely done, apparently some contracts need to be moved to even out salary distribution but I would say a deal would get done sometime this weekend.

So the Jazz suffered for the longest time under a bad contract for an overpriced player, and they will finally follow that up by trading his expiring contract for an overpriced player on a bad contract.

:facepalm: if this has any grounds for the Jazz.

Maybe there is a trade in the works, but I don't believe the above scenario because of what I just said about the Jazz, and that the Nets would be left with trash at PG.

Not trash Jordan Farmar! :rolleyes:

And lastly the whole point of trading Harris is to open the slot for Chris Paul whcich you guys are blinded by right now idk how..


Paul
Morrow
Melo
Murphy
Lopez

With williams and farmar off the bench? That's a contender.. ***** Harris its not like they won with him.. He's a individual player who gets his points only from fouls.. He's not that good..of you can get melo for a player who's never played and another who can't impact a team for melo & Paul? Take out Utah & this would makes sense..

You don't think playing on a team where Jay-Z is an owner matters? (And yes I know that Russian billionaire is the majority owner). The simple fact is more people in the world know who Jay-Z is then who Carmelo is. If Carmelo joins the Nets, is it so hard to believe that Jay-Z would promote that player in everything he does, thus increasing that player's recognition, thus netting that player more endorsements which would make him substantially more money? Add that to the Russian owner increasing that player's popularity in Russia as well as Europe.

Simply put, Carmelo should give a **** about Jay-Z being an owner. He would be an idiot to not give a ****.

The Nets must be planning for something within the next 3 years when they would have Melo. Maybe some small trades to get a PF or PG. Maybe open up cap room in preperation for future big free agents that would now STRONGLY consider the soon to be Brooklyn Nets with Melo and Lopez.

Because they can't bring him in straight- not if Lopez isn't included in the deal.

Not only do they want expiring contracts (and AK-47 is 16 mil off the books), the Nuggets also want multiple 1st round picks, and it totally benefits the Nets not to give up multiple 1st rounders, which is probably why they are giving up Harris.

Plus, they're including a requirement to sign an extension from what I hear. It doesn't sound like you realize that the Nuggets went to the playoffs the first year Melo was here, and we didn't have anyone but him. They won 20 some games the year before.

You'll get your PG next year. IMO that is what they are aiming for. If you're talking about your team, wouldn't you rather they don't gut it to add a superstar?

The Nuggets won a ton of games with Melo and a serviceable pass-first PG (Andre Miller, Steve Blake, Earl Boykins, Anthony Carter). You can too.

Last year they were. This year, they've gotten Murphy to compliment Lopez. They might have 4 or 5 guys left over from last year too. If they can get DJ from the 'Cats, then they are in pretty good shape.
They aren't doing this with the expectation that they'd win now. I'm sure he would understand it's a project.

And if Lopez becomes the 2nd best center behind Dwight, then it's most definetly worth the chance.
I'm sure both Avery and the new boss are privatly calling Melo to convince him.

I just have a hard time seeing him sign, Adrain Wjobaksdkfd said that "he is having a case made to him that NJ is a compromise"

If he has to have a case made to him he clearly doesn't wanna go there and the fact that they are saying its a compromise, meaning it isnt what he wants, its less. Melo could just say ill walk away at the end of the year and you get nothing. Yes it is assumed that he will lose money but look at LeBron, I know he took the ***** way out but he took less money to play where he wanted with who he wanted and gave himself a chance at rings. As much as I hate LeBron I have to respect that he gave up all that money so that he could play where he wanted to play and have a chance to win.

If Melo doesnt want NJ, he will sacrifice the money and go where he wants. If he agrees to go to NJ, he was more about the money than anything else.

i just dont see them turning around and even being playoff contenders. yes, they might be able to land a 7th or 8th seed if they got carmelo, but thats not what he wants. i understand that they have some good young talent but carmelo isnt going to want to be on a win later team. he wants to compete with the lakers, celtics, magic, and heat now. if he had a choice between chicago, new york, and new jersey, he has a better chance to win now and later with chicago and new york.

I don't know that they should ship off that huge expiring though, they could just hold on to him and make a run at a big FA next season. Charlotte is never gonna win anything, they just keep showing why there a joke of a franchise. Nets would look like what? Melo, Murphy and Lopez? There not gonna win with that, they would improve from last year significantly but it'd be almost impossible not too. They'd have to wait another few years to become a contender. And by contender I mean serious contender not just the 6th seed in the East. Also, BIGGIE and Big L is a deadly combination. I know L and Pac did a song together called Deadly Combination but the 2 greatest MC's in my eyes are BIG and Big L.

I don't see Denver trading Melo to another Western Conference team unless somebody blows them away with a great offer.. and im sorry but the Rockets and Clippers cannot do that. Rockets do not have the young prospect the Nuggets want..and as far as first round picks go, you'll be getting mid to late first rounders..

Atlanta is going nowhere with JJ leading that team.. They should offer Crawford and J-Smooth.. Who knows what Jamal can do when he starts. Atlanta's side .. Melo/Johnson/Horford would be able to contend in the east imo

I don't see this deal happening, I don't see Boris Diaw playing for Jerry Sloan. Although I always said Boris needs a coach like Sloan, If he can't cut it for Larry Brown, how is he going to play in Utah? Melo is better of staying in Denver another year then actually picking where he wants to go..

you didn't get melo yet.... you better hope you do cause if not you guys are still terrible.... even with melo you are a borderline playoff team. not to mention your giving up picks and favors to get him. nobodies gonna care about melo if he's playing on the nets, AKA the bills of basketball. this would be a terrible career move for him.

are you serious>??

the knicks are GOD AWFUL

what upgrades did you make???

david lee left and you signed amare who is the same type of player and paid him max lol

what other players did you get??



the nets revamped the whole roster and brought in avery

dude he's just milking the story. melo's fan base won't be nearly as substantial playing for "the other team" in new york. this just doesn't make sense to me. of course it makes sense for the teams involved, but not for melo... i know he's smarter than this. he's the one calling the shots.

and of course it doesn't make sense for you, because you want Melo lol.

If you read who that is aimed at you'd understand. :facepalm:

The kid thinks the Nets are going to be the worst team in the league and then he backs it up by saying since they had the worst record last year which is irrelevant to this new organization.

This has nothing to do with the Nets acquiring or not acquiring Melo.

Ok lets be real here, the Knicks are a better team on paper then the Nets. Both teams IMO have made major improvements in the offseason so lets not go down that road and turn this into a Nets vs Knicks thread.:pity:

is it safe to say then, that Melo doesnt give a ratsass about winning, only about being in the limelight???

Ohhhh the ignorance. :sigh:

This must be your first year watching the NBA I'll let you watch it for a year or two then get back to me.

Listen not saying to start **** but......you guys won 12 games play in front of the worst attendance in the whole NBA......yes your moving to Brooklyn but you dont really have a fan base, in Brooklyn.. so then your competing against the Knicks which really ISNT close at all, in fan support. That being said your trading a lot of pieces and talent to get Melo to play with ? Lopez and who else all those future draft picks.....Favors is gone and so is Harris, then what I'm just asking and please don't say your gonna get CP3 hes under contract for 2 more years and you have no pieces now to get him so what then??

All those future picks? It's one pick that we traded Marcus Williams for.

Hollinger says D.J. Augustine would probably go to the Nets as well. I am kind of torn on this trade. I love Melo but Harris and Favors is a lot.

Same...the nets are giving up 2 huge key assets to their future. Melo is in the category of super stars, but still...obviously we don't know what Favors will be with his career cause he hasn't even played a game yet. If Favors does bust, then the Nets will have called it perfect. If they get Augustin then losing Harris won't be as bad. But still...no one knows what Favors will be, and that would be the biggest fear I would have as a Nets fan.

I believe that New Joisey won't do the deal unless anthony signs the extension (good idea). But I really do like the combo of Augustine-Anthony-Lopez. It would be very underrated.
