The Sixers and Denver are talking about a potential trade that would bring Carmelo Anthony to Philadelphia and send Andre Iguodala to Denver, a Western Conference executive has confirmed to the Daily News.

The executive said Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri has spoken with Ed Stefanski.

The Sixers and Denver are talking about a potential trade that would bring Carmelo Anthony to Philadelphia and send Andre Iguodala to Denver, a Western Conference executive has confirmed to the Daily News.

The executive said Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri has spoken with Ed Stefanski.

Other players would need to be involved in the trade to match salaries.

The Sixers are not among the four teams that Anthony has said are his preferred destinations, with Chicago and New York at the top of his list.

The Sixers also would need to get Anthony to sign an extension. His contract expires after the season and he has not signed a 3-year extension offered by Denver.

Iguodala agreed to a 6-year, $80 million contract with the Sixers in August 2008.

Reports late last week had Anthony close to going to New Jersey in a complex four-team deal that also involved Utah and Charlotte. The New York Daily News is reporting that the Bobcats are holding up the deal, unwilling to include point guard D.J. Augustin. Charlotte was expecting Augustin would replace Raymond Felton, who left this offseason via free agency.

Indications are that the Nuggets would like a deal done before they begin training camp tomorrow.

It would take Iggy, Turner or Holiday, at least our next 2 #1s and possibly Shane Victorino to land Melo.

I'd still probably do it though.

Melo won't re-sign anyways. So I don't understand why Philly would want to do it. THe only way this happened, was if Melo signed an extension before trading, which won't happen.

Charlotte FO is being greddy anyway. They are getting a very good PG in Harris and for only Diaw! Yet they balk at including Augustin who would lose major minutes behind Harris anyway... The entire inclusion of Utah and Charlotte still baffled me in that proposed deal...

I think we all know that he's going to end up with the Knicks or Bulls, so all these other teams are just wasting time, and I don't get why they even give offers.

Here's something interesting though, if Noah wants a ton of money, then Chicago might want to part ways. I think Melo to the Bulls is quite a decent possibility. Knicks, would be awesome, but if Chicago gives up Noah, the Knicks don't have anything better to offer so the Bulls will win the sweepstakes.

Stop getting all butt hurt for nothing man. Your source is 2 days old and since then literally dozens of reports have emerged of Favors being part of trades. Also the Favors to Philly, Melo to NJ, and Iggy to Denver came from me. It's possible. Makes more sense for the Nets and Nuggets. I don't know about the Sixers thou. I know Thorn loves Favors and his crazy potential but idk if the thought of Turner AND Favors is enough for him to part with Iggy.

Not really. Deng average 7.3 RPG and Iggy average 6.5 RPG and played roughly the same amount of time. Iggy like the other guy said is a much better team player. Iggy is a far better passer. He averaged almost 6 apg and deng averaged 2 apg. Going by that I would take Iggy as the offensive player and Iggy would be a better defensive player if he put more work into it. He was a great defender in 08 and last year had a bit of a down year defensively.

Deng Career - 15.8 PPG 6.5 RPG 2.2 APG

If anything they're on the same level, but Deng can fit into any system better because he doesn't need the ball in his hands like Iggy does and plays off the ball so well. I don't understand why you all reacted as if Iguodala is Jordan and Deng is Sam Bowie.

No its pretty obvious that that Iggy is better that's why we reacted like that. Career stats aren't important it's whose better right now. Iggy doesn't need the ball that much he has just had it more because he's been the go to guy in philly for almost his whole career.

Only knock on Deng is that he hasn't been able to stay healthy consistently. Now that he's playing on a much better and deeper team, he won't have to play a lot of minutes and should be more productive.

Why wouldn't the nuggets do this. Are they getting anything better? They aren't getting Noah and despite what other people say I don't see them getting Favors. What would you rather them do keep Melo this year and get nothing from him other than cap space to sign a lesser player than Iguodala.

if melo wont resign with sixers (which we all mostly assume he wont). Heres a trade that could work for everyone

Sixers trade - iggy
get - taj gibson, luol deng

Bulls trade - taj gibson, luol deng, James Johnson, and 2 1st rounders (including charlotte's)
get - melo

Nuggets trade - melo
get - iggy, james johnson, and 2 1st round draft picks from the bulls (including cha)

http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=2duvsts
it works financially. Sixers get better in that they get 2 solid players who together are better than Iggy. Bulls get melo (obviously a great trade if they dont have to send out joakim). And nuggets get a really talented, marketable wing player to help soften the blow plus 2 1st round picks, one of which is a potential lottery pick, and james johnson a 2nd year sf with skills enough to be a solid role player

Who knows right? I mean Philly right now can look at it thru different perspectives.

1) Melo> Iggy

2) Melo is an expiring contract so if he decides to leave Philly at seasons end, Philly saves gets over 18.0 mill off their books.

3) Philly is under a new regime; Coach Collins, a veteran coach. Let's say Philly succeeds this season, it might intrigue Melo to "re-up" for a couple of seasons.

* Melo doesn't have a "no-trade" clause so therefore he has no say on where he is traded.

Good thing you're not the GM then.

Don't be offended because it's a bad package for a top 10 player. Your team can do better, but doesn't want to. If you miss out because of that it's something you guys will have to live with not me.

On a talent-for-talent basis, getting Iggy back is definitely one of the fairer proposals for the Nuggets.

That said, I think I still like Favors/AK(expiring)/1sts better. If Melo gets jettisoned, the Nuggets are rebuilding. Getting Iguodala would really be a halfway measure that would keep them competitive enough to miss the lottery, keep the payroll high enough not to have flexibility moving forward, and basically put them in a position to go one and done again in the playoffs.

I pretty much subscribe to the school of thought that if you're not building a contender, you should be rebuilding so you can position your team for that, and anything in between is pretty much just a limbo that might keep ticket sales a little higher, might keep the team "good enough" to be in the playoffs sometimes, but locks the financial/roster/draft situation in a position where the team can't really improve enough to become a legit contender for the title.

So my preference for the NJ deal is less about Iggy, and more about the overall, long-term situation for the Nuggets.

There was renewed hope Sunday that a four-team trade sending Carmelo Anthony to the Nets was still alive, with the framework of the deal possibly expanding to include additional players and possibly another team, CBSSports.com has learned.

But a weekend of inertia continued to frustrate the three teams Denver hastily recruited to accelerate Anthony’s departure, with executives standing firm in their belief that the longer the delay, the stronger the chance that the precarious structure of the trade could fall apart.

Among New Jersey, Utah and Charlotte, sources say least concerned were the Nets, who understandably have “no deadline” to pull off the blockbuster, franchise-shaping deal. The problem is with the pieces volunteered by the Jazz and Bobcats, who’d benefit the least from the arrangement and want to avoid unnecessary distractions heading into training camp this week. Charlotte’s role in the existing deal would be to send Boris Diaw to Utah and receive Devin Harris from the Nets, while Utah would send Andre Kirilenko to the Nuggets, who’d get No. 3 pick Derrick Favors and two first-round picks from New Jersey. Quinton Ross also would go from New Jersey to Utah.

“No one wants to go to camp with drama,” said one executive not involved in the pursuit of Anthony, who ignited the sweepstakes by refusing to sign a three-year, $65 million extension while his high-powered agents, Leon Rose and William Wesley, pushed hard all summer for a trade.

Sources say the Nuggets have been taking full advantage of the holding pattern in talks to listen to offers from other teams – though executives with knowledge of the situation do not believe a better offer has presented itself. The Bulls and Clippers, two teams with attractive assets and a realistic chance of persuading Anthony to sign an extension with them, have not progressed beyond the packages they initially brought to Denver’s attention. Some signs Sunday pointed to the revival of talks between Denver and Philadelphia with Andre Iguodala going to the Nuggets, but there was no signal from Anthony’s camp that he’d softened in his opposition to bringing his talents to South Philly.

Another player the Nuggets have targeted as a viable asset to recover in an Anthony trade, Anderson Varejao, remains a long shot for the same reason; Anthony isn’t going to Cleveland, the city that superstar LeBron James fled in July as though the Cuyahoga River were on fire.

So on the second front, the Nuggets are trying to determine whether another player within the current framework of the deal or even a fifth team would be able to further sweeten the reward for parting with the organization’s best player in two decades. The Nets are said to have “exhausted” the options available to the Nuggets in the current structure of the trade, with one possibility having Harris going to Denver instead of Charlotte. What Nuggets officials are weighing there, according to an executive with knowledge of the talks, is whether Harris might have more value as a trade chip than Kirilenko – an indication that Denver would view itself as being in full-blown cost-cutting and rebuilding mode without Anthony in the fold. Kirilenko, with a $17.8 million expiring contract, would seem to have more value than Harris, who is owed $27 million over the next three years. The Nuggets have not asked the Bobcats for Gerald Wallace, according to one executive familiar with the negotiations.

With nothing happening to push the discussions any closer to completion or extinction, Anthony could very well still be a Nugget during media day Monday at the Pepsi Center, which brings the saga to its next critical turning point. Anthony’s presence around the team will give GM Masai Ujiri his first chance to sit down face-to-face with the superstar and hear directly from him on his level of comfort with the best offer the team has received to move him.

Coach George Karl, whose ability to influence Anthony’s position should not be underestimated, also will have a chance to be in the room. This way, Nuggets officials will be able to hear first-hand from Anthony where he stands on the direction of the organization and his comfort level with joining a New Jersey team that would still be one major piece away from championship contention after adding Anthony. To this point, the vast majority of communication with Denver officials has come from Anthony’s advisers with Creative Artists Agency – most notable Rose and Wesley, who staunchly favor a trade to pastures they argue are greener than in Denver.

What the Nuggets are hoping, at the risk of jeopardizing the best offer they may get, is that Anthony’s angst will subside once he’s back with the only team he’s known during his seven-year career. He may conclude that he wouldn’t be much better off somewhere else.

That's not just a good question, that is THE key question here.

Because if they are, that really raises the stakes on the other teams, because it provides a competitor that Melo can't refuse. I thought that NJ deal was gonna go down yesterday, and I really didn't understand why the Nuggets seemed to get cold feet. But this would help explain it, if the 76ers really were willing to do that.

Possibly. If the Nuggets actually sent him to Philly. But I think they'd still probably use that as leverage to get the best deal from NJ they can (ie. Not having to include Afflalo or Lawson if the Nets include Harris).

and you need to realize something. talent wise you're not getting a player better than iggy. SO if i were you i'd def want the best talent i could get back

We arent trying to dump Iggy for anything, we would be fine keeping him. Unless we get a super talent like Favors or proven star like Melo, we will just stick with what we have.

I think Speights and Brackins are more talented than Gibson so it really wouldnt make sense to trade Iggy for that. I also think Iggy is a much better player than Deng and the stats agree. Iggy had a down year last year and he was still better than Deng.

Lol I can't believe Billy King is such a dumb***... Letting the Denver FO rape him like this... Who does he think he's trading for? DWade? This is Melo! Just plain overrated "can't win you anything but butts in seats" Melo! Ugh... I hate this trade! I can't believe they are considering throwing away Harris needlessly... I think it makes more sense to cut out Utah and CHA, and bring in Philly. Melo to Nets, Iggy to Denver, Favors to Philly! Simple. Less mess. Why isn't it obvious to these tools? NJ would like to keep Harris. Thorn has been in love with Favors and his monster potential since he drafted him for NJ, and Denver wants Iggy badly! Make it happen. It makes more sense than that sloppy messy 16 team trade idea...

The difference being that Iggy can be a better rebounder. I think he doesn't put too much effort there. While Dengs passing would never improve. Also Deng is not durable at all. Forget stats. Look at it this way. Philly hasn't nessesarily been shopping Iggy around. He's good! Meanwhile you guys have been offering Deng like Tootsie Rolls on Halloween. Nobody wants him.

WOW great theory there :facepalm::facepalm:

Deng's name has been thrown around for the league's premium players like KG, Gasol and now Melo. If Melo says he wants to sign with Philly I bet the whole city would volunteer to pack Iggy's bags and drive him to the airport.

Philly has already stated that they are not looking to facilitate a trade of Melo to another team. The only way I see them doing so is if Thorn is still in love with Favors since drafting him for NJ.

The Sixers and Denver are talking about a potential trade that would bring Carmelo Anthony to Philadelphia and send Andre Iguodala to Denver, a Western Conference executive has confirmed to the Daily News.

The executive said Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri has spoken with Ed Stefanski.

No chance that Denver makes that move unless Turner or Jrue Holiday is involved. And I don't see Philly including either of them unless Anthony agrees to an extension beforehand.

Sure there've been notable cases this summer, but it's way premature to say it's a new road we're going down.

Melo WONT sign in Philly. He is in a FAR WORSE situation in Philly than in Denver. Seriously, he'll be with Elton Brand as option #2.

I was also thinking of Shaq bailing on Orlando, and then this decade there was Kobe doing this exact same thing from LA, Vince Carter from Toronto, Iverson leaving Philly, Joe Johnson leaving Phoenix, Nash leaving Dallas, McGrady wanting to leave Orlando, etc. This is nothing new.
