Kind of surprised he didn't say the Bulls, but I still don't get NY. I could see Orlando and Dallas because both those teams with Melo would be instant favorites probably, but NY? I just don't get it.

Melo in DAL would be nasty. I'm not sure they have what it takes to get the deal done though. Thye have the expirings, but not a lot of young pieces to offer.

comes down to what they can offer, but the route throught the east looks easier. i would lovev to see dwight win one.

me either honestly you need to throw out NY in that situation and bring it down to orlando, dallas, or chicago. call me a homer all you want, but thats all chicago is lacking is a consistent shooter, if they get melo, they could be favorites to win it all right away. as well in orlando and maybe dallas.

His first choice is NY hands sown but since its not up to him. The question is who has the best package???

Knicks have alot of good young players such as Gallo, Fields, Chandler, Douglas and Randolph but no draft 1st rd draft picks to offer.

I dont know what the Magic can offer...Maybe Lewis, Reddick and a 1st rder?????

You're not being a homer. Dallas and Orlando are contenders, the Bulls are on the cusp, with Carmelo they would definately be right there for sure.

IMO he gets traded to either New Jersey, Chicago or New York.

With the way felton is playing, Amare in the middle and Gallo shooting and slashing, I think Melo walks into the ideal situation. He is a slasher and scorer and that is just what this team is lacking.. He will be the primary scorer on a team with a distribution first PG, a stud big man to dish it to and a spot shooter to dish to. There is no way to D that team. They could run like hell and play half court. I think Melo wants the NYC. At least I hope so.

(him on the magic would be insane as well. But they play more of a Defensive minded game.)

11-29-2010, 05:21 PM
You can not just "throw away NY" because they are rumored to be his preferred destination. That doesn't mean they will get him but they can not simply be thrown away for that matter because its where Melo is rumored to want to go to. He can simply say Im not signing anywhere but NY and force his way to the Knicks.

That said, Orlando would make a lot of sense

Most logical thing I've read.

Orlando has the pieces to get a big deal done... not to mention Otown with Melo or CP3 would be pretty legit.

The Bulls when healthy will be the 3rd best team in the East, they might make a deal to try and get better, but they are also young and will improve regardless, but they aren't getting Melo.

Melo doesn't get traded to the Mavs... Same Conference=Not happening, what do you think the Nuggets are the Eagles.

11-29-2010, 06:20 PM
Dallas? Are we actually in this despite it only being hearsay...

Mavs do always give their two cents when it comes to big name players on the tradeing block.

Magic make tons of sense, they have decent pieces to give. Being in the east might be helpful. Maybe Denver makes it a bigger deal and swaps Billups w/ Melo to the Magic to join Dwight. Magic need either Melo or CP3 later down the road to get over the hump.

Chitown would love him, who wouldn't, but Denver wants Noah. Bulls cannot give up Noah and that might continue to be the deal breaker.

New York always in the news. Knicks could use a go-to playmaker/scorer of Melo's caliber. Melo would be happy in NYC, but had Denver received an offer they liked from NY, you'd think a deal would have been done by now. It seems revolved around Gallinari and whether he'd be included. Worth it?

I've always thought Dirk needed that true superstar player alongside him or vice versa. Of course he's played with his share of really good players, but not a Melo-type. Dallas doesn't seem to have what it would take to land Melo, but Cuban always works the phones and does his best to get talent to make the Mavs even better. Roddy B would for sure be the center piece of any deal with Dallas.

Orlando and Dallas become instant title favorites w/LA if adding Anthony.
Chicago elevates to serious threat for Boston
NY makes playoffs, 2nd rd exit, but legit improvement and hope to resign Melo

try vc which he still can give you 16-20 pts a game and has a expiring contract. bass,reddick,anderson,pietrus, franz (rights), williams for example and multiple draft picks.

I don't think the Nuggets will be overly concerned with the production they could get from VC. Bottom line is that if they're trading Melo, they're going to be rebuilding so an expiring contract is an expiring contract.

I consider Bass, Pietrus, and Redick more as veterans at this point than young talent that a rebuilding team like the Nuggets would want. Plus, aside from Pietrus who has a 2 year deal, Bass and Redick are both locked down for 3 years. I don't think the Nuggets would want to be tied down by those contracts?

And Vazquez is already 27 and to my knowledge, I haven't heard anything recently to suggest that he's coming to the NBA anytime soon. I could be wrong about that. And you mention multiple draft picks but I think Melo+what the Magic have right now almost ensures that Denver would get one of the last three picks in the first round so it's virtually early second rounders, except they get guaranteed contracts...

So yeah, I do think the Nuggets can get more from the Knicks (expiring contract+some combo of Gallo, Randolph, Chandler, Fields, etc.) than they could from the Magic:)

Dallas will not give up Roddy to get Melo. If we get him, there is about a 80-85% chance he leaves for New York to try to get with Amare and Paul regardless if Dallas is better. A deal could be Butler, Jones, Stevenson and picks/cash. That probably won't be enough for Melo but that's about as much as I would offer. Melo would take shots from Dirk (who is the superior player) and Melo is also all about Melo.

The L Train
11-29-2010, 06:46 PM
Look, there is no way in hell that the Knicks should trade for Melo. And I doubt they will, I think Donnie Walsh is smarter than that.

If they were to trade for him, they'd have to give up too much, and for what, when they can probably just wait and sign him after the season? As as lifelong Knicks die hard, the last thing I want is to see a trade for Melo. Probably have to give up Gallo, Chandler, Douglas, way too much.

For as much as they'd give up, I'm not sure they'd be any better than they are now. Just wait till next year and sign him up Donnie.

I would venture to say a package of Wilson Chandler, Galo, expiring Curry is a much better package then what Dallas or Orlando has to offer. I'm sorry

JJ Reddick, Rashard Lewis and a Late first rounder wont do the Nuggets any good.

Nor will anything on the Mav's.

11-29-2010, 09:49 PM
Listen, I am not one to say the Knicks have the best package in the world because I dont think they do. But if Melo tells the Nuggets I will only sign with NY I dont think a package of Gallo, Chandler, Curry and a pick is as bad as people want to make it...

Gallo-15.7 ppg, 4.80 rpg, 1.5 apg-22 years old

Chandler-16.2 ppg, 5.70 rpg, 1.4 apg-23 years old

Fields-11.1 ppg, 7.20 rpg, 1.6 apg-22 years old

Douglas-10.9 ppg, 2.90 rpg, 2.1 apg-24 years old

Curry is pretty much just an expiring. But keep in mind, Chandler is 23 and Gallo 22. 2 solid young players for the Nuggets to build around, along with Ty Lawson.

Now lets look at what the Magic would have to offer assuming that VC is automatically in the deal because of his expiring...

Redick-6.9 ppg, 1.50 rpg, 1.8 apg-26 years old

Nelson-14.6 ppg, 2.80 rpg, 6.8 apg-28 years old

Brandon Bass-9.3 ppg, 4.90 rpg, 1.2 apg-25 years old

Daniel Orton- No stats this season-20 years old

No team looking to rebuild would want Rashard Lewis and his asinine contract so I didnt include him.

Roddy Beaubois- No stats this season-22 years old

Dominique Jones-0.8 ppg, 0.60 rpg, 0.6 apg-22 years old

Deshawn Stevenson-4.4 ppg, 1.20 rpg, 0.7 apg-29 years old

The only advantage either the Mavs or Magic have over the Knicks is the expiring they would be sending the Nuggets and lets be realistic, an expiring is just that. You don't build a team through expiring players. Actually EC has the biggest expiring deal in basketball so technically the Knicks could offer more financial flexibility than either team.

As for the draft pick argument, both the Magic and Mavs are going to be picking in the mid to low 20's. A team could go out and buy a pick in that area for 3 million dollars. It would not be hard for the Knicks to go out and find a pick of the same caliber of Mavs and Magic that would appease the Nuggets.

So is the Knicks package the best package ever? No. But lets not undervalue the solid young players the Knicks could offer.

Listen, I am not one to say the Knicks have the best package in the world because I dont think they do. But if Melo tells the Nuggets I will only sign with NY I dont think a package of Gallo, Chandler, Curry and a pick is as bad as people want to make it...

Gallo-15.7 ppg, 4.80 rpg, 1.5 apg-22 years old

Chandler-16.2 ppg, 5.70 rpg, 1.4 apg-23 years old

Fields-11.1 ppg, 7.20 rpg, 1.6 apg-22 years old

Douglas-10.9 ppg, 2.90 rpg, 2.1 apg-24 years old

Curry is pretty much just an expiring. But keep in mind, Chandler is 23 and Gallo 22. 2 solid young players for the Nuggets to build around, along with Ty Lawson.

Now lets look at what the Magic would have to offer assuming that VC is automatically in the deal because of his expiring...

Redick-6.9 ppg, 1.50 rpg, 1.8 apg-26 years old

Nelson-14.6 ppg, 2.80 rpg, 6.8 apg-28 years old

Brandon Bass-9.3 ppg, 4.90 rpg, 1.2 apg-25 years old

Daniel Orton- No stats this season-20 years old

The draft picks, like I said, would be very low 1st rounders, picks that can be very easily acquired as I noted.

And to be fair Jason Williams is 35, Gortat's best statistical season is 4.4 ppg and 4.6 rpg(hardly earth shattering considering Landry Fields is averaging better numbers as a rook) Q-Rich is 30 years old and has been no better than average for years, Pietrus is no more than a role player in his best season and if Im right, an overpaid one at that, and the rights to a player who may never come isnt exactly enticing.

Ill give you Anderson because he is young and has potential but other than that, all the players you named are not exactly players you can rebuild a team around and not one of them has had a better statistical season than Gallo or Chandler have at such young ages, except maybe Q-Rich almost 9 years ago.

Like I said, the Knicks may not have the best package, but what the Magic and Mavs are offering isnt exactly breath taking either.

So the Nets get him for 2 unproven backups(I'm assuming you are talking about Favors and T-Will) and go from 6-11 to the #4 Seed in the east and The Knicks have to gut a roster that has at least 4 solid young players and 3 proven young players and go from 7th in the east at 9-9 to being "soooooo" bad? And my logic is flawed?

Not to mention you would have to include Troy Murphy for his contract and probably Humphries for good measure.

thats sillyness. A guy like Gallo is putting up 16ppg on only about 10 shot attempts per game. You really think pace is blowing up his numbers? Maybe it adds half a point per game if you want to be extremely generous, but people throw that out there as if it makes a HUGE difference.

D'antonis system benefits PG's more than anything, as you can see with Felton averaging 18ppg & 8 apg

So the combination of Favors who cant even beat out humpries and T-will who is in the d league is enough to get the job done?

But a combination Of Gallo(starter)/Chandler(starter playing 6th man role)/AR(Young cheap potential and 21)/Buike(Expiring)/Eddy(expiring)/Lando(cheap young talent third best rookie so far) isnt enough

People act like we have garbage players when we have cheap young talent which the nuggets are looking for.

for the magic there best package is Q-Rich(30 streaky shooter)/R-anderson(young cheap talent)/Pietrus(expering)Vince(over 30 making 17 mil this year and next)or JJ(cheap young talent).
The nuggets be stupid to take lewis horrendous contract and i doubt the magic give up nelson knowing that duhon(doo doo) would be starting

for the bulls Deng(25 11+ for 4 years)/Gibson(cheap young talent)/Johnson(cheap young talent)Draft picks

Now depending if the nuggets are rebuilding or just making moves to improve there going to either want cheap young talent and/or expirings plus draft picks

So you tell me a nets package thats better then all 3 i listed above because i cant think of one

I think the Knicks have the best offer of young talent out of all 3 teams, but I do not think Melo will get traded unless the Nuggets know he is gone. I think Melo lands in New York in the offseason-just my opinion. I think the Knicks could trade their 2011 pick(if its Houston or New York) in the offseason so there could be a lot of chatter going on in the big NYC after the collective bargaining agreement gets done.

You forgot the Nets have draft picks, which could easily be lottery picks so Favors, 1 lottery pick and 1 potential lottery pick could be big for the Nuggets. However from what I've heard the Nuggets want more and the Nets are not including Favors because they do not think the competition such as the Knicks could beat their current offer. Lets hope Carmelo does not want to play in Newark(I think thats where they play) or maybe the Meadowlands and then Brooklyn in 2012.

hmmm reguardless I still believe the teams with best chances whether it happens this season or a sign n trade when he's a FA is NYK, Bulls, NJ and then Orlando. Dallas is probably up there some where as well but I can't see Denver trading him to another western conference team and shooting themselves in the foot. Rebuilding or not I don't think many people want to make sure a team in the same conference will beat up on their young players especially a team with Kidd, JET, Melo, Marion and Dirk.

I could see Bulls doing something for sure if they are willing to take Deng's contract and probably a package including Taj Gibson and some picks. The knicks would probably have to move Gallinari, Chandler and more than likely Toney Douglas so they can allow those 3 to grow with Ty Lawson and any other future picks.

The Nets would definitely have to move Favors, Murphy and I could see Denver wanting a SF like Outlaw there.

I personally think that Bulls & Knicks are clearly ahead of anyone else and that's not because I love both teams but because with the Bulls the instantly become favorites to win and with the Knicks Melo gets what he wants basically. The Big stage, Playing with one of his best friends Amare and whatever else that may come along.

Also like others have said and I will add now....If he went to Orlando with Dwight that would be sooooooo nasty......They would punish ppl for a longggg time. My only question is what players would have to be moved to make that possible? I can't see a rebuilding team taking on Rashard Lewis's bloated contract if they are trying to build a whole new team

VC and Pietrus are expiring, so we could send them Carter, Nelson, Pietrus and Anderson for Melo, Chauncey and Smith (guys they want to get rid of)... That's young talent and expiring.

Nuggets:
PG - Nelson-Lawson
SG - Carter-Afflalo
SF - Pietrus-Forbes
PF - Harrington-RyanAnderson-Williams
C - Nene-ChrisAnderson

Magic:
PG - Billups-Duhon-JWill
SG - Redick-Smith
SF - Melo-QRich
PF - Lewis-Bass
C - Dwight-Gortat

This would allow the Nuggets to stay competitive for the rest of the season and rebuild in the offseason...

That's a telling comment on his part. He knows that run and gun just doesn't win championships. That's why I think Orlando, Bulls and possibly New Jeresey have to be preferred destinations for him.

I can understand how you might not have seen this. It didn't get that much press at the time.

On Monday at morning shootaround, I asked Melo about coach Mike D’Antoni’s offensive system in New York: “You’re up and down, fast-paced and you get extra possessions in the game,” he said. “On the flip side, I’ve been on teams where we weren’t known for our defense, and that’s not something I want to ever deal with again.”

Well in that case, you should hope we don't get Melo, he's a guy who could score on anybody and the absolute best guy when it comes to the last shot. Ask Lebron, he lit his Cavs up for 41pts including the game-winner which he drained in his eye... It will be a great rivalry regardless, but if we get Melo, it will be of epic proportions.

Btw if we get CP3, game over.

I think its pretty naive to say that Melo and Amare would not at least be a top 4-5 team in the East. The Knicks are currently 9-9, which is not far from the Miami Heat. The Knicks do have young talent, but those guys could more likely be good NBA players than NBA superstars. However, I am not saying the Knicks have the best offer but if Melo continues to pursue his goal of going to the Knicks, the Nuggets will have to look at the Knicks offer because Orlando and Dallas cannot put together a package of solid young, cheap talent as the Knicks can. Honestly, you guys honestly think Melo and Amare could not be a lethal duo?

From the Nuggets' perspective, I think there's no way in hell Melo gets traded to the Mavs.

And either of NY or Orl would definitely need 3rd/4th teams in the mix to provide better picks, prospects and cap relief to the Nuggets than either team alone is able to now.

As a Mavs fan, I would have to agree with you. He will end up in the East somewhere.

It's not plausible for several reasons. It's as if situations were reversed, I couldn't see the Mavs dealing Dirk to Denver. Melo to Dallas isn't happening.

THIS

really trying not to hate on NY, but honestly if you look at the people who create these rumors mostly is ESPN. ESPN I think is dying for the knicks to get real good again. ESPN rumors any star going to NY, I mean look at their history. they really don't have a lot to give up at all. I don't see melo going there unless its during FA and he wants to be on a big stage.

I disagree if anything ESPN is always belittling us and laughing at us. We are always ranked under the nets even though we have had a better record than them for the past three years. Your boy Chris Bousssard is always hating on us. Espn cares only about two teams, Lakers and Heat thats it.

I agree with you as much as I like melo to dallas, Denver isnt trading their best player in there conference at all. He's going to the East for sure. I would think the knicks are in the lead for his services via trade or free agency

I disagree....... they will answer negative questions about almost every team besides the heat and knicks (maybe even boston). you asked them what the knicks have to give up for melo and they dont have an answer. i dont know if they are just trying to get ratings from new york or what. broussard was a knicks beat writer. i think that guy is an idiot.
