Carmelo Anthony's army of leakers and whisperers put out the word that the Nuggets' franchise player and three-time All Star wants out of Denver, looking for a combo of superstars like Miami put together to play alongside for the next few years. Of course, when asked, 'Melo says he's just playing and isn't thinking about the future, which is absurd on its face, as he's left a $65 million extension on the table for months (and just, again, told the Nuggets last week that he had no intention of re-signing in Denver, according to a source.)

See, I dislike this more than I dislike the LeBron way of handling things. Basically, if this is true, Melo is saying "screw Denver, I have been mentally checked out for 2 years now." Denver actually has a lot of talent around Melo, too. Play out your contract, then make your free agent decisions. The leaks that he will only sign the extension if traded to NY and all that from the Melo camp are ridiculous and disrespectful to the Nuggets.

At least by letting them know now, they can explore trade options and get something for him instead of letting him walk for nothing in the summer.

but he has been playing out his contract hes just warning them now that he isnt going to sign him so try to get what you can now before you get nothing

no where in that source does it say to trade him to a specific team



thats just basically the way how i take it

This. LeBron let Cleavland know what, 30 minutes before his decision?

Regardless, this entire situation has gotten really redundant and irritating. We know Melo won't re-sign but this thing will still drag on for another month and a half...

Honestly, looks like he just wants NYC... but a darkhorse can be the Lakers. I'm sure he wouldn't mind going there, and LA has the pieces to get him, but most likely it won't happen because LA would have to trade its size to get him.

1. He isnt telling denver this now for their benefit, he is doing it b/c he wants to get his extra 65 mil...and he can only do that if he is traded and signs his extension elsewhere.

2. Why do people keep saying that Cleveland didnt get anything for lebron. Miami traded 4 picks to the Cavs and they could have had Beasley as well if they wanted him.

I believe Denver is waiting until near the deadline to deal him to New Jersey, I am almost certain. Ujiri realizes the Nets are plummeting right now, and the further they fall, the better their 2011 draft pick will be. Combine that with the draft pick (s) acquired in the Vujacic deal, cash considerations, Troy Murphy, and Derrick Favors, and Mikhail Prokhorov and the crew are heading out in the G6 to Denver International to talk to the man himself

He's going to Jersey, if he was he would of went already. He WILL NOT SIGN an extension with the Nets. Its common sense why would he leave the Nuggets who are competing to go to the Nets who are one of the worst teams in the NBA and sign an extension. Just use a little common sense and think about it. He is going to the Knicks one way or the other. He has all the leverage and we already seen the video of when he got told about the Nets. Its obvious that he has one place on his mind.

Contrary to the popular belief, the Nets are not a horrible team. Their roster is just very young and inexperienced, they lack a player to lead them and can score at will. When Vince Carter was a Net, he made the jobs of Devin Harris and Brook Lopez and the role players much easier, and as a result the Nets won more games. I expect the same effect with Carmelo on the roster. There is no evidence to support your claim he would not sign an extension with the Nets either. That video is entertaining the first time around lol, but think about it, if you've been traded without any knowledge you'd be taken aback also.

To further my point he has Billups, Martin, Nene, Harrington and J.R. Smith, what makes you think he is enticed by Lopez and Harris??? The Nets are just making themselves look like a desperate fat chick that doesn't take a hint that the popular guy in school doesn't want them. Rebuild through the draft and maybe use a pick to get a piece or two.

Getting Melo, the Nets can still trade picks and Troy to get other pieces, look at the Celtics in 2007. He didnt want to sign an extension with the Celtics but they had a lot of pieces and picks to make trades for other players.

the nets have a better offer on the table via trade, but if he does not have an extention signed by july 1 and he hits the open market he will sign in new york. then the knicks will trade fields, felton, picks, money, ect to new orleans for cp3.

I agree **** Melo for giving his team time to get a package for him before he leaves. He should wait towards the end of the off season and then decide to leave the Nuggets.

Everytime I see some blabbering idiot bring up that video its like dam I can't even respond with how stupid he makes himself look. If some random guy at work told me I had been fired i would be beyond shocked.

Melo is an idiot. He showed his hand in this poker game. He accidentally made it obvious he wants that extension badly. Now he has to accept a trade wherever that may be. The whole "he wont re sign with NJ" thing is stupid! NJ wouldn't even be in this discussion if his motivation was winning. He don't give two ****s about winning! That argument is posed under the assuption that NY is a contender with him there which is not a given. Why would best offensive team in the NBA need another scorer for the starting lineup when their bench is what hurts them most games? Camby+Mayo+Flynn would make you guys dangerous. Not Melo. Melo says all he cares about is playing and winning cuz he has an image to preserve but that **** don't care about winning which is why I'm angry that my Nets are trying to gut their team for him. I need a new squad. Anyone taking apps? Lol

Umm there is a big difference from what the Lebron did compared to what Melo doing....

If Lebron told the Cavs early in the season he wasn't going to re-sign with the Cavs, the Cavs could have traded Lebron and tried to unload their big contracts for some actual potential superstars and picks....

Not just 4 picks and hope they get lucky on one of the picks....

This is what Denver is trying to do...Melo has made it clear he doesn't want to re-sign with the Nuggets and now the Nuggets are trying to get the best pieces for Melo.

What Lebron did was he completely screwed the Cavs future by what he did. The Cavs could have picked up a young star and could have started to build around him this year. Instead, Cavs have a bunch of old timers and mediocre players with no one to build around.

Those saying the cavs would of traded lebron are nuts. Unlike Denver the cavs 2 years in a row had the best record in the nba becaose of Lebron. They were never going to get close to equal value so why not try and go for a championship. That was a different situation. Denver is getting older with Billups and who knows about how long Karl will coach and they are not getting out of the west.

I disagree, if Lebron came out last year and said he wasn't going to re-sign, I think they would have attempted to trade him last year...

The whole situation last year was completely ****ed up, the fact that Lebron leaving a top 3 eastern conference is just crazy, and everyone just assumed Lebron was going to come back. Cavs were really in a lose lose situation last year.

you can't trade him when you have the best record in the NBA. If anything that would make me want to go all out at the deadline and go for a championship since once you trade Lebron the chances of you winning one is very slim. Lebron wanted to go to free agency unlike Carmelo which is a big difference.. Honestly the lebron situation was completely different then this melo thing.

It's about winning rings........... What's the point of creating this so called rivalry, if it does not put you in position to goto the finals? It seems like to me (but I could be wrong) you just want a almost super star on your team just to say you have one. You will win a couple of games but Melo will not put you over the top and your franchise will not be-able to put pieces around him, because the crazy denver nuggets are asking for 5 damn 1st rd picks; the league is too water down (not enough star players), their is no real help out their, just think about it. If it's not about rings, it don't make sense.

Ny Jersey will have a good team, if they can get Melo, but thats all. Boston, Miami, Orlando, Chicago are the teams that you will have to get by for the next 2 to 4 yrs. Even if boston fades and superman leaves the magic, Miami & Chicago are going to be too strong for Melo and water down teammates.

I am not bashing, just sharing my thoughts.

Even as a Knicks fan I can say I don't like the way Carmelo's handling this. Don't let this get out to the media. If he's hellbent on the Knicks, just tell the Nuggets "look, I've enjoyed my time here but I'm going to move on at the end of the season, I'll play hard for you until my contract expires but I am going to leave in a year so plan accordingly". He's turning this into a media circus. Why can't superstars just show class.

Who says LBJ signs the extension if he is traded to another team(here we go all over again)?...........
You even said it, LBJ wanted to go into free agency (in one of your later post).

Teams would be stupid to give up so much, just to have the player walk. LBJ would have token his *** right down to south beach as soon as the season ended.

it was false hope though.so you'd rather be lied to and the news of leaving(and never had a chance to change that)coming out of left field.then being upfront about the whole thing,giving you time to come to grips with it(and maybe allow for your franchise to plan for a future without you and not one that they planned on having that player in it)?

Melo wants a chance at a Chip going to NJ with Andre Miller or someone on that level will make Nets a borderline playoff team, with this season in the trash. On the Knicks he makes Us a 50 win team of the Jump n a few small pieces and we are a contender. Let be serious here ofcourse he cares about winning

Carmelo is playing his cards in a way where he can benefit most. He will not tell the Nuggets that he will re-sign untill the last possible minute when he has no choice but to accept the guaranteed max contract. The cba issue has a lot of effect on this situation. Melo wants to leave while re-signing with max miney. he just won't say either way. By not stating that he won't re-sign maybe he will get raded with max money to a team or destination of choice. This is all strategic on his part.

The Knicks will have to trade for him though, so in the end they'll need a bit more than a few pieces to be a contender.
IMO there is no chance that he's going to wait until the off season, too much money would be left behind. So the Knicks will either have to outbid the Nets, or if he doesn't want to sign with the Nets, then the Knicks will still need to outbid teams that will take him for rental. So they'll have to give up something. Although I still don't think rental will happen as he'll want that extra cash.

Then apparently the Knicks are going to get CP3, even though they'll already have 2 players on $20+mil, and the cap looks to be coming down as well. So if NY get their big 3 they are going to have to be very clever and creative.

Look what the Knicks did in one summer, they went from a bottom feeder team, picked up Amare, and became an exciting team.


How does anyone know if Melo can have the same effect on the Nets? I think Melo on the Nets would make them a very dangerous team.

well NY did more than just add Amare, they also signed the best FA PG available who is an all-star caliber PG this season, they also got lucky and got Fields at#38 who has been the best rookie of the 2010 class so far.

And with all that they still figure to be somewhere around a 45 win team so its not like they are title contenders. And NY was a bad team but they weren't as bad as NJ has been the last 2 seasons, its one thing for NY to go from 30 wins to say 45 this season, but NJ was a 12 win team and are not looking much better this season. You'd be asking Melo to add 30+ wins to NJ just to get them to .500!

No doubt Melo will probably help NJ get 10-20 more wins, but even that would only put NJ at around .500 at best.

I personally have changed my stance and come to the conclusion that Harris & Lopez are overrated and not as good as they were made out to be. If they are so good and NJ has a great PG and a great center in the east they should at bare minimum be the 8th seed.

Honestly, looks like he just wants NYC... but a darkhorse can be the Lakers. I'm sure he wouldn't mind going there, and LA has the pieces to get him, but most likely it won't happen because LA would have to trade its size to get him.

In order to get Melo (and possibly another player with him) you have to give up both Ron Ron and Bynum. I don't think Denver will entertain anything less than that, which isnt a terrible deal IMO for the Lakers

now melo isnt doing this to be a nice guy and leave better than lebron did,its just an effect of it

It's a business. Melo has every right to pass on an extension with Denver if it's not his preference. The rest is media speculation, who claim to have sources, which they may or may not have. Their job is to sell newspapers and get eyeballs to TV. All Melo has done is not sign an extension, which means that he's leaving his options open. And what's wrong with that? Same goes for signing an extension with a team he doesn't want to be on. Why would he ever do that? He's not a commodity, he's a person.

This is a dumb trade, how is it that you have the Mavs getting Melo, but not giving up anything to get him. The kings are giving up too much also, this would never work. Unless teams wanted to do a favor for the Mavs because they feel bad that butler is out for the year. I expect to see Melo in a Knicks Uni sometime this year. Chandler or Gallinari, a future 1st rd pick, Tony Douglas, Shawne Williams or Turiaf and Eddie Curry's expiring for Melo and a filler.

Knicks are the only team he will sign with, however I do think the lakers could also get him if they tried.

My opinion on Melos priorities:

1: move close to home where his family has just suffered a loss and his wifes career might blossom.

2: sign that extension! He wants that money. Make no mistake, there are no "taking a pay cut so he can play with good players" type deals with him. Based on his own comments he wants that extension more than we know.

3: Play for the Knicks since they are already winning and have Amare.

In a perfect world the Knicks wouldn't have traded all their picks and would be able to compete with NJs offer and he would've been a Knick long ago. I don't buy that whole "Denver doesn't wanna deal with NY cuz they tampered" thing. Denver just wants multiple picks which NY doesn't have. Also if you think that Melo would seriously not take a compromise in NJ to fulfill his top priorities of moving back home and signing the ext just so he can play for the Knicks then idk what to say... Melo WILL be traded by the deadline to who knows where but this idea that Melo is really just a competitive guy who only wants to win is just idiots feeding into the messages that his PR people want to send out. He has an image to preserve. Lebron us only surviving the hits he took to his image because he's an amazing player. Melo? Not so much...

Denver actually has a lot of talent around Melo, too. Play out your contract, then make your free agent decisions. The leaks that he will only sign the extension if traded to NY and all that from the Melo camp are ridiculous and disrespectful to the Nuggets.

He is playing out his contract... wich is why he hasn't been traded yet, he's actually been pretty proffessional about the whole situation. Would you rather Melo put on a 1 hour special on ESPN on saying where he would like to go? And by you saying Melo has checked out this season and last, you obviously haven't watched him play this season, or last.

Of course it's pointless to speculate on Carmelo's so-called "priorities" with no direct connection to his line of thinking, but if we're going to do it I'd have to strongly disagree with your list. I'd say his first priority is to win in a big-market, which Denver doesn't qualify as. Second to that, would be getting as much money as possible. That money doesn't have to just result from a contract, it can also come from endorsements which could conceivably grow in a larger-market. Then somewhere down on the list is pleasing La La which would mean playing in a market such as New York, Chicago, LA, Houston, Dallas, etc. I wouldn't necessarily say that "play for the Knicks" is one of his priorities, I'd just say that the Knicks fit most, if not all, of his needs.

I still don't think it's a lock that he'll be traded before the deadline, I think it's an unfair claim to make. Obviously, only time will tell.

I also disagree with a lot of the assertions -- which lack empirical evidence and logic -- about Anthony.

Pointless as it may be it's even more pointless for ppl to be dissin my Nets by bringing up ridiculous assumptions. I actually can't disagree with you about the winning in a large market thing which explains the Bulls being speculated also so thats actually a very plausible theory. However that's not the argument that is being posed by ppl on here. What i keep reading most is that the Nets suck and aren't that good with him. How he would never play in Newark.

Let's put all the speculation to rest...here's what is going to happen...Once the deadline creeps up closer the Nuggets will approach Melo and say give us a list of teams we can negotiate with in which you'd sign an extension with. From that point the Nuggets will contact each team and say what's your offer and from there they will use other teams as leverage in order to get the best deal. As of right now we've heard New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Orlando, Houston, both LA's and probably other teams that I'm missing as all possible places for him to land. Denver doesn't want to have a LeBron saga on their hands where they get nothing in return, and Melo is smart enough to realize that with the CBA and a potential lock out it's in his best interest to sign an extension with whomever he's traded to.

Contrary to the popular belief, the Nets are not a horrible team. Their roster is just very young and inexperienced, they lack a player to lead them and can score at will. When Vince Carter was a Net, he made the jobs of Devin Harris and Brook Lopez and the role players much easier, and as a result the Nets won more games. I expect the same effect with Carmelo on the roster. There is no evidence to support your claim he would not sign an extension with the Nets either. That video is entertaining the first time around lol, but think about it, if you've been traded without any knowledge you'd be taken aback also.

Denver has to move him sooner rather than later. The team looked like they knew he was one foot out the door last night. The looked uninspired, selfish, played no defense and just looked lazy. He's becoming detrimental to this team...and frankly, I'm impressed Karl has been able to keep the ship sailing for this long.

Sucks for Denver. They got close, but never were able to get over the hump, and now their best player has been stirring up the pot all season. They're in a ****** situation.


And to whoever made that 4-team trade...there is no way Orlando gives up Redick and Nelson for a backup center (even though Chandler is great), and I highly doubt Dallas is looking to move Chandler. Nelson and Redick play 60+ minutes a game. Chandler would probably play 10 a game...not worth it.

Really? U dislike Melo being honest and upfront? He could not tell them anything and then hold a 1 hour special where they find out with the rest of the world. Ya LBJ handled it much better.

All Melo is doing is being honest. And why should he sign a 65 million dollar deal with a 5th seed team thats aging and injured when he can go somewhere else with a young team and make another 50 million?

I see what you're getting at. But Melo needs to stfu, stop being a diva, and play b-ball for Denver instead of handcuffing the organization. LeBron still handled the situation worse, though. Whoever argues that isn't very bright.

How is Melo acting like a diva?

Not once did he come out and say I "I want to go to the Knicks or w/e"...everything has been "sources" over and over again. Being a diva would be sitting out and not playing and forcing a trade. He is still playing hard. It's not his fault , he wants to keep his options open but Denver offered him an extension when he rather go somewehere else.

:pity: He never said that either. That was also sources... Lots of Knicks fans wanna believe that but so far the only direct quote from Melo relevant to the issue is when he implied how important the extension is to him when he said the extension woul be the first thing that would be handled no matter where he goes. He also said before he's not leaving any money on the table cuz you don't that where he's from. I don't feel like looking for sources cuz I'm sure someone else here will be nice enough. I'm too lazy.

That being said of course he's keeping quiet on his wishes! It's all sources because he has an image to preserve. He speaks thru his agents who speak thru "sources close to the situation who will remain anonymous because they aren't authorized to speak on the issue".

Who KNOWS what the truth anymore. We can all just speculate cuz it's fun. So I'll say it again. Melo wants his money and would accept the Nets as a compromise but only as a last minute on the deadline type of thing. It's a game of chicken and Melo will probably lose. Denver stands to lose a lot but in perspective Denver losing their star that prolly won't win them a title, and losing some money from attendance dropping, is not as Melo losing an opportunity to move home, to not get his money, his wife's career not taking flight, and not getting more endorsements.

The only team that his reps have told not to waste their time was Charlotte.


Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan was interested in making an offer to acquire Carmelo Anthony(notes) from the Denver Nuggets until, sources said, the All-Star forward informed Jordan through a representative that he had no interest in playing for the struggling Bobcats or signing a contract extension with them.http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news;_ylt=Ar1lsB5m0UzMnrsgNLAaKtO8vLYF?slug=mc-afterthebuzzer123110

No "source" has said that Melo informed the Nets that he had no interest in playing for them. If Melo completely ruled out the Nets, then wouldn't you think that he would've informed them (via a rep) by now?

Well, if the Nets give up as much as is being reported than I would have to agree. However, if the Nets could get away with just giving up Favors, Murphy and a couple picks then it's a different situation. The Nets offer a lot more upward-mobility than the Nuggets, they play in a larger-market (or will in two years) and could potentially be more of a lure for other star-players.

I still think he'll end up on the Knicks, but one could easily make the case that the Nets are a viable option as long as they don't completely destroy the structure of the team and give away all of their assets while acquiring Melo.

With each passing day the odds look better for the Knicks but it's ignorant to imply that he won't come to the Nets cuz he wants to win. Get real man. Is he wanted to win so bad we wouldnt be having this convo cuz he could stay in Denver and have a better shot; or the Mavs to contend. He's a loser with talent. He doesn't care about winning. He wants to win but it's not a priority. His team got blown out by the Kings last night. All these rumors are a distraction to the team and if he cared he would come out and be clear of his intentions. If he had told his team it was Knicks or bust then the trade would have happened already cuz even if the have to swallow their pride and deal with NY they will cuz they don't wanna lose Melo for nothing. People that say he'll never come to NJ are ignorant as hell cuz the ONLY legitimate reason I can think of why he wouldnt consider them is cuz they play in Newark. Winning is not a factor. Even Melo is intelligent enough to realize that he fits in perfect with them and they would be a lot better with him. You NEED a superstar in this league to win.

Detroit as the third team is the latest rumour:


WASHINGTON -- The Nets are trying to involve the Pistons in a three-team deal that would bring Carmelo Anthony to New Jersey, league sources said.

In the complicated scenario that’s being discussed, the Nets would send Derrick Favors, Devin Harris and at least two first-round picks to Denver and Troy Murphy’s expiring contract to the Pistons. In return, the Nets would get Anthony and Chauncey Billups from the Nuggets and likely Richard Hamilton from the Pistons, who are looking to shed salary. Hamilton has two years and $25 million remaining on his contract.

There are many more players involved to make the salaries match, but this is one of multiple things the Nets are discussing in an effort to land Anthony. They also are trying to trade with Denver straight up for the All-Star small forward.

The Nuggets have a standing offer of Favors, Murphy and at least two first-round picks. But if something like that happens it may not be until around the Feb. 24 trade deadline. The Nuggets don’t want to pay Murphy’s salary right now but may be more willing when less is owed to him.

It's all about teaming up with another star or two. Celtics. Lakers. And now the Heat. You don't think Melo sees how successful the Heat are now? Cmon guys. You think that toast at Melo's wedding was a joke? On the surface, sure. But you know they're trying to make it happen. Why wouldn't they? Bron, Wade and Bosh manipulated the system. Melo doesn't want to get left behind. It seems so obvious to me. No one knows what he's thinking for sure, but the writing is on the wall as far as I'm concerned. Of course I could be wrong, but why leave for a rebuilding team? It just doesn't make sense.

Thats another thing for Melo to consider, if he agrees to go to NJ this season might be a lost season, NJ is 16 games under .500 and we are almost half way through. NJ would struggle to get an 8th seed this season and even if they did they'd only be making a date with MIA or BOS.

No the monivation is the chance to play with Billups and Rip who have won a ring before, to get his money without the new CBA and I am saying Rip is old now but in 2 years his contract is up and there are a lot of good free agents that off season similar to 2010.

Stop hating, just like LeBron, Dwayne Wade, Joe Johnson, Bosh there was 0 chance. Its going to be the same with Carmelo Anthony for you guys and when thats over you will move onto CP3 then when that doesnt happen its going to be Dwight Howard.

How was i hating?


does the truth bother you?


lol wade, lebron, JJ, Bosh all didn't want to go here. Melo does. there's a big difference

Pretty sure the zero chance thing still applies, since none of them went to NJ. Plus Nets fans have wanted every single free agent that the Knicks fans have so once the Melo thing is done (regardless of who gets him) you guys will also still be pulling for Paul and when that doesn't happen, Howard...

Says who the Knick fans who "believe" and brain wash themselves to cheer these guys? Or Chris Sheridan the only guy reporting about Melo and Knicks? who happends to be the biggest Knicks homer? There have been 0 reports about Melo and Knicks.

Why do i feel like im talking to a 13 year old nets fan?

Bobcats have 0 chance..Melo told them no..has he told Nets no? Also have Nets stoped persuing him? No, which must mean something. I am not even close to sure he will go to the Nets but they are in talks with Denver daily.

For some reason every Knick fan hates the Nets and their fans for some reason? I dont know why? When the Nets were a great team with RJ, Kidd and VC were Nets fans disrespectful to you guys?

Not all of them. Some of them are classy as ****. I'm starting to just ignore the ones like that one that's been trolling our Melo forum for the last couple of weeks.

id love new jersey in the playoffs. melo rip and chauncey omg and brook staying too wow.
Melo and Brook is nice, and Chauncey and Rip would contribute and play well together as former teammates. But I don't see that team being too effective in the long term unless they pick up very good role players.

Why would Melo want to go there? I think Melo in NY turns them into a championship contender instantly.

I was born in New Jersey, and lived here all my life. I'm a fan of both teams. I know the rivalry is based on them being close to each other especially when the Nets were in East Rutherford, but other than that, I don't get it. Even some Nets players before the last time they faced didn't realize there's a rivalry:laugh2:.

This is what I don't get. Unless he wants to be a franchise savior, which would be hard in that situation, why not just stay in Denver, who has good depth? I can't see how Melo's situation as far as winning goes is going to get better on the Nets if that team is made. I mean it's possible, and it's also possible something else goes down in addition to that for the Nets, but it's an odd sounding situation for the Nets to do this.

The Nets might have better off trying Jefferson/Carter/Harris/Lopez. Harris had a breakout season because he had Carter to help him (although he did have several injuries) and Lopez could have used those players to develop. If that didn't work out, well at least the younger players would have developed better and the contracts of the veterans would have been coming off soon and they could have dealt with things better.

I thought the reason was for the Nets to get younger, this looks desperate or kind of stupid.

You guys are right across the river and are coming in NYC soon, I don't really think were suppose to get along.

And you guys are a bit sensitive no? Knicks fans been getting ripped for 10 years by everyone who can speak.

I think it's been clearly stated by the Nuggets that they're not interested in Deng's horrendous contract.

Its been a lazy 28 though. Hes just been shooting with no bounce in his step. A motivated melo could avg 35

saying a player could avg 35 a game if they "felt like it", is pretty bold. He never has been near 35 a game in his career, so that argues against you. Plus no player has avged that since Kobe, several years ago. And he would catch a rash of **** like Kobe did for being a ball hog. I just disagree that its just that easy to avg 35 a game.
