Damnnnnnnnnnn this is gonna be a HUGEEEEE trade

Fred Kerber reports that when all is said and done, as many as 17 players from the Nets, Nuggets and Pistons could be moved. If it happens, the three-deal would be the biggest trade by far in NBA history, supplanting a 13-year player, four team deal engineered by Pat Riley in the 2003 off-season.

"The Nets, under the whopper trade which is nowhere near close to be completed, would essentially gut their current roster. At 10-26, that might not be a bad thing," writes Kerber. Earlier Saturday, Frank Isola reported that the deal could involve 12 players.

Among those who could be dealt are Johan Petro and the team's three minimum salary players: Stephen Graham, Quinton Ross and Ben Uzoh. Among the others who could traded from the Nuggets and Pistons are several whose names have already surfaced: Shelden Williams and Renaldo Balkman from Denver and Terrico White from Detroit, which Kerber reported earlier Saturday. Of course the main pieces remain Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Richard Hamilton, Devin Harris, Troy Murphy, Derrick Favors and "perhaps Anthony Morrow," Kerber writes.

At this point the Nets (I think) don't care about Melo going there with an extension cause I think right now they just want him to get there so that they can at least try to convince him to sign with them.

His agent is apparently involved in the negotiations, and he has been trying to get Hamilton involved in the trade.
So I'd say if Melo wasn't going to sign with the Nets then his agent wouldn't be wasting his time trying to get more players to them. His agent would know whether or not he'd sign.

They've said they won't trade for him unless he agrees to the extension, they won't gut the team and then just hope to resign him, that's insane.

What you have to understand though is that the more money Melo makes, the more money Leon Rose makes. He could be trying to get the Nets to overhaul their roster so they can convince Melo to sign there, thus making him more money.

It has been said all along that the only reason Melo would go to NJ is because he would still get his money and its a compromise to the NY lifestyle. With recent reports saying that Melo may be willing to wait till FA, Rose may have gotten a little nervous and saw millions of dollars slipping out of his hands, thus making him more eager to try and help the Nets.

That said, does anyone else find it weird that the details of this deal are so public? Usually with such complicated deals, the teams try to keep it very quiet to not disturb the balance of the deal. Seems fishy that both teams are so quick to disclose the negotiations.

DEN is talking to teams because they are being told that he will not resign with them. They first have to strike a deal with any team before they run it by him. The teams they are talking to atm probably have nothing to do with his preference, because if they cared about that they would only be talking to NY.

what if melo were to go to the bulls.

noah

would be really nice.

and i think a rivalry would be created between miami and chicago for years to come.

the nets should really just wait to move the team first before they start gutting theyre team. melo plus a 32 year old hamilton and a 34 year old billups doesnt sound to promicing at all.

You really think the Nets would negotiate w/ the Nuggets for 3-4 months w/o knowing whether Melo would open to an extension w/ the Nets? Why wouldn't Melo's reps just tell the Nets to not waste their time just like they told MJ and the Bobcats?

idk how to feel about this. chauncey and rip are up there in age. good, but will obviously not get better bc they are old and might (probably) start to regress.

understand the point of them being involved in the trade but for the long run idk how i would feel about it

and for everyone saying it would be funny if melo came to jersey and then left, you must not read. every rumor that has come up has said he must agree to the extension BEFORE the trade would go through, just like KG had to for the boston trade. not hard to understand

This trade will never happen. Melo isn't gonna sign and extension with a team that no one in the NY area cares about, with the aging Chauncey Billups, Rip Hamilton, and Brook Lopez, the worst rebounding center in basketball, as his main supporting cast. That team is an 8th or 7th seed AT BEST in the eastern conference, and won't get better as the Nets deal all of their good young players (besides Lopez), and draft picks in this deal.

Nah not really. I'm just realistic. If you were him would you go from Denver who has a much better team than the Nets would have even after the trade, to New Jersey, a team that even when they were good no one cared about, where he'd play in front of empty seats every night, with 2 past their prime aging players? OR would you rather play for a team that is already good, has another bonafide superstar in Amare Stoudemire, is the #1 team in the NY area by far, in the biggest media market, and have a shot to win multiple championships.

Pretty easy decision.

You really don't know much about basketball I can tell. Our 100 million dollar man with bad knees is the best power forward in basketball, and a legitimate MVP candidate. We already are almost a top 4 team, what are we like 2 games out of the 4th seed right now? The teams in front of us, Boston, Orlando and Atlanta will be on the decline over the next few years so that'll put us in the top 3 with Miami, and Chicago. And even if we don't get Melo we still have cap room this summer to work out a trade or sign some free agents and add solid players, like maybe Andre Igoudala, Anderson Varejao, Kedrick Perkins, Glen Davis, etc. and make our team deep. The Nets will be stuck with no young players, no draft picks, and the 33 year old Rip Hamilton, 36 year old Chauncey Billups, Melo and Mr. Softy Lopez, and be capped out. So either way the Knicks win.

With all do respect, the Nets, along with every one but Pat Riley, struck out on Bosh, Wade, and Lebron as well. The Nets then struck out on their back up plans of Rudy Gay, Carlos Boozer, and David Lee. At least the Knicks were able to complete their back up plan.

This is my fifth time saying this in the NBA forum, but here goes: We (Nets fans) apologize for DoMeFavors' behavior. We also apologize for any future disturbances and/or stupidity he may (and will) cause. We ask that you forgive our fan-base for producing such an unintelligent, disrespectful, biased, immature and misinformed individual. We also would like you to know that his opinion and/or mindset is not indicative of the rest of the population. Believe it or not, not all Nets fans are as (fill in the blank) as DoMeFavors is. Hopefully, we can move forward amicably and continue to restore the relationship between Nets and Knicks fans.

Once again we apologize for the inconvenience and any future disturbance. We ask that -- if it's not too hard -- you ignore him as to save your time as well as his. We're hopeful that if he is ignored his ignorant behavior will cease. As comical as his opinion may be, it's not fair to the rest of Nets-fans to have to be associated with him. Thank you.

Prime Vince Carter :facepalm:. The guy was way past his prime when he was on the Nets. Your hall of famer who you refer to who I'm assuming is Jason Kidd has been advising Melo on not signing an extension with the Nets because of how terrible it is to play for them. And yeah we did strike out with Lebron, but we got Amare who is one of the best players in the league this year, and he's put the team on his back and got us back into contention, unlike the Nets who are in last place in the division.

I'm not mad I've been saying the whole time that I don't care because it'll never happen. No one in their right mind would want to play for the Nets when they could play for a good big market team. I don't like to agree with Lebron, but the Nets should probably be contracted because no one care about them.

Ok so if no one cares for the Nets, why bother posting in thread? and how do you know who would want to play for the Nets or whether or not Melo would sign that extension? Do you personally know Melo, doubt it.

Prime Vince Carter :facepalm:. The guy was way past his prime when he was on the Nets. Your hall of famer who you refer to who I'm assuming is Jason Kidd has been advising Melo on not signing an extension with the Nets because of how terrible it is to play for them. And yeah we did strike out with Lebron, but we got Amare who is one of the best players in the league this year, and he's put the team on his back and got us back into contention, unlike the Nets who are in last place in the division.

Kidd came foward and said those reports were false. Why do you think former Knick players love when they leave the Knicks? Like Nate Robinson, Al Harrigton, Maurbury, Larry Hughes? Because its a terrible franchise to be apart of.

This is my fifth time saying this in the NBA forum, but here goes: We (Nets fans) apologize for DoMeFavors' behavior. We also apologize for any future disturbances and/or stupidity he may (and will) cause. We ask that you forgive our fan-base for producing such an unintelligent, disrespectful, biased, immature and misinformed individual. We also would like you to know that his opinion and/or mindset is not indicative of the rest of the population. Believe it or not, not all Nets fans are as (fill in the blank) as DoMeFavors is. Hopefully, we can move forward amicably and continue to restore the relationship between Nets and Knicks fans.

Once again we apologize for the inconvenience and any future disturbance. We ask that -- if it's not too hard -- you ignore him as to save your time as well as his. We're hopeful that if he is ignored his ignorant behavior will cease. As comical as his opinion may be, it's not fair to the rest of Nets-fans to have to be associated with him. Thank you.

It's been reported by Chris Sheridan that he will only sign an extension with the Knicks.

WOW Nets are insanely desperate.... Favors is the 3rd pick 30 games into his career, the pick they give up will be at worst top 5 (if they play the season out without Melo), the GSW pick can also be a lottery pick, and Harris is clearly their best player.

so they give up their best player, 3rd pick, top 5 pick (can easily be 1st or 2nd), another potential lottery pick, and their best shooter (morrow) for 2 old guys and Melo.

Hasn't made a mistake here yet. BK is a downgrade from Thorn. You'll realize this (if you haven't already) when it comes time to resign or sign players. He is notorious for going way over market value.

Exactly. That's why I think the Nets should just forget about Melo and just use their multitude of draft picks and young players to rebuild. This trade makes no sense for them.

People need to stop being so ignorant. All we have is reports and so far most reports point to Nets being the front runners. There is NO way in hell that the Nets FO would be putting this much sustained effort into squiring Melo unless they were told he would resign with them. Melo already informed Jordan and his Bobcats that he wouldnt resign with them; so why not the do the same curtesy for the Nets? Nobody is questioning his desire to be a Knick. However this is not a "Melo gets EVERYTHING he wants" situation. He'll get his money and he'll move home. Is that not enough? He has an image to preserve and he would be almost as bad as Lebron if he held out for the Knicks and did his Nuggets such a disservice.

I'm not saying this deal will go down cuz it's probably will not. However those Knicks fans saying how he'll never resign with them cuz Newark is sucks or cuz NY is the largest market... Cmon really? We've heard your song before. I think last summer proved that today's superstars are a different breed and market size is of little relevance to them in the grand scheme of things. Nets should rebuild slowly like Minnesota and Clippers are doing. They are turning into such talented teams. I envy them.

So stop with the NJ bashing already cuz damn it's getting kinda sad!

no but really, the Nets are just giving up too much for Melo and it seems like they are willing to give up everything just to put a face on the franchise... just one of the MANY moves the Nets have made the past few years that reek of desperation

You're 100% right, but you should also take a page from your own book because you are one of the more notorious Knick haters on here...but at least you admitted it...lol

What I don't really get though is why NJ fans want someone who would prefer to be elsewhere, you say stars are a different breed today and that they don't care about market size but yet you also say Melo desires NY... kind of a contradiction.

Most of us actually don't. Especially with this years draft having a few small fowards going in the top 5, we can have a potential youg stud there instead of Melo for 3 1/2 years.

This is what the Nets should do. They arent built to win now. They should go get a young SF in the draft and build around that player and Favors. They have so many draft picks they are bound to hit on some of them. Thats the route Id go if I were Billy King. However, it seems they are more concerned with having a big name to tag to the team when the move to Brooklyn.

How is it a contradiction? I never said he wants to go there cuz of the market. Only Knicks fans want to believe that. Fact is that the Knicks have Amare am they are winning already so that the NY based team he wants. Also he wouldnt have to wait till 2012 to be fully in NY. That's why he wants to be a Knick.

Why pursue players that dont wanna play for us you ask? Cuz contrary to these supertar divas widespread popular belief it's not about what a player wants. They should stick to balling instead of being spoiled b****es! Melo will take a compromise in NJ or lose millions and also take a serious hit to his image. Kidd didn't want to come to NJ either but what happened once he got here? These players are ignorant. They dont understand what it takes to win so they all wanna team up and form super teams. Melo is not even that good so the Nets are being stupid. 2012 looks like a deeeeeeeep draft. They need to continue their slow rebuild.

Idk why Nets fans expected any different. Mikhail Prokhorov did not become a billionaire by being a devoted basketball fan. He's a business man. He wants this team to be a financial powerhouse in Brooklyn. Getting a Brooklyn horn star and getting Chris Paul after seems to be his big plan. He doesnt care about winning in itself thou. Hes a competitive guy but basketball is just a hobby to him. Making money is his passion.

Melo going to the Nets would hurt is image even more:
because he would go from a winning situation to one of the worst teams in the league. That would prove that he doesnt care about winning.
