The Virtues Of Renting: (from Hoopsworld)

"The New Orleans Hornets would love to rent Carmelo Anthony; they'd give up the ending contract of Peja Stojakovic tomorrow to make it happen. They might even throw in some draft picks or a roster player."

"The Golden State Warriors are desperate to make a splash this season and sneak into the playoffs. With some of the talent on the roster now paired with Carmelo, the Warriors would improve dramatically. If all it cost the team was Monta Ellis and a draft pick, they'd trigger the deal."

"The Orlando Magic would gladly send Vince Carter and a roster player to Denver for Carmelo Anthony. The Magic wouldn't shred their roster for Melo alone, but if they could get him for almost nothing they'd do it, even without a contract extension."

The only teams I see doing this are the ones that realistically have little chance of landing Melo. If he goes there, interacts with the players/staff, and the team has a decent year he'd have a bit more incentive to sign there when he becomes a free agent.

Why would the Nugs give him up for that garbage? Peja or Vince? I'd rather just keep him for the year

Should have pulled the trigger on the Nets deal (assuming Melo agreed)

3 way deal!

- Magic acquire SF Carmelo Anthony & SG M.Redd

C: Dwight Howard/Daniel Orton
PF: Rashard Lewis/Ryan Anderson/M.Allen
SF: Melo/Quentin Richardson/Stanley Robinson
SG: M.Redd/J.J. Redick
PG: Jameer Nelson/Chris Duhon/Jason Williams

- Win/Win for Magic. They acquire two large expiring contracts in Melo & Redd. If Melo re-ups; Howard,Melo,&Nelson would be a great Tri-Factor to go up against the Miami Trio. If Redd is healthy, definitely a plus for Orlando; I can see them as the #1 Seed in the Eastern Conference.

- Bucks acquire K.Martin

C: Andrew Bogut/Larry Sanders/Tiny Gallon
PF: Drew Gooden/K.Martin/Luc Richard Mbah a Moute/Ersan Ilyasova
SF: Corey Maggette/Darington Hobson/Jon Brockman
SG: John Salmons/Carlos Delfino/Chris Douglas-Roberts
PG: Brandon Jennings/Keyon Dooling/Earl Boykins

- Martin adds more depth to the frontcourt of the Bucks due to part that Bogut is an injure-prone player.

- Nuggets acquire C M.Gortat, PF B.Bass, SG V.Carter, SF/SG M.Pietrus, & 2012 1st rd pick(v/Magic)

C: M.Gortat/Chris Andersen/C.Sims
PF: Nene Hilario/B.Bass/Shelden Williams
SF: Al Harrington/M.Pietrus/Renaldo Balkman
SG: V.Carter/Aaron Afflalo/J.R. Smith
PG: Chauncey Billups/Ty Lawson/Anthony Carter

- Add Youth & Playoff experience with Gortat & Bass, and a scoring threat in Vince Carter who'll work great with PG Chauncy Billups.

What makes you think this deal is any better than what the Nets had on the table or what the Knicks or Bulls will probably offer soon?

A big expiring, Gortat, Bass, Pietrus (all mediocre role players at best) and a late 1st round pick?

Gortat would be a starter on more than half of other nba quads

I don't see why Denver would pull this off honestly.

Is there any chances that the Orlando could get Melo and Paul without trading Howard??
Paul/Anthony/Howard --> BIG THREE!!

That might just work. Add some heroin and crystal meth in for the Birdman and it's a no-doubter.
