Knicks have reached out to Memphis about sending OJ Mayo to DEN in 3-team deal that would send Carmelo Anthony to New York, sources say

If NYC gives up Landry Fields or Gallinari in the deal I have yet to be convinced this deal would make them a better team.

Wilson Chandler is better than both. So long as they keep him, they are set at the SG position.

As it stands Gallinari is not a PF, nor a SG, and it takes away from his game trying to play either spot from what I've seen. He probably won't work very will with Carmelo.

If all they are giving up is Gallinari, Curry, 1 young player filler (your choice of Azibuke, Randolph, Fields) and picks, the Knicks would be fools not to do that.

Of those three, I would give up Chandler, since his game resembles Melo's the most.

Gallo is an elite stationary shooter and the intangibles the Fields brings are just to valuable to put into numbers.

A lot can happen. maybe Walsh gets a 4th team involved or something. Sais talks are preliminary so I guess we'll just have to wait and see....

The actual article the tweet refers to, that OP didn't bother to post for whatever reason:


The New York Knicks have reached out to Memphis about participating in a three-team deal that would send Grizzlies guard O.J. Mayo to Denver and Carmelo Anthony to New York, according to league sources.

Talks are in the infant stages and nothing is imminent, but the discussions are a sign of the Knicks' increased aggressiveness in trying to trade for Anthony.

Emboldened by their belief that Anthony will refuse to sign a three-year, $65 million contract extension with the New Jersey Nets, the Knicks have stepped up their efforts to bring the Nuggets star to New York.

The Knicks have tried to engage Denver in trade talks all season, but the Nuggets, unmoved by the players New York has to offer, have been unwilling to partake in significant discussions. Sources, however, say that is changing as the Nuggets themselves wonder whether Anthony is willing to go to New Jersey.

The Knicks understand they need to recruit another trade partner or two in order to put together a package Denver would be interested in, and that's their motivation for inquiring about Mayo. It is not clear at this point whether Denver is actively involved in the talks with Memphis.

Mayo, who has had a disappointing and controversial season in Memphis, is on the trading block, and the Knicks' hope is that he would satisfy Denver's desire for a promising young prospect. Though the third-year guard is coming off the bench and scoring less than 13 points a game this season, Mayo averaged 18 points over his first two years.

Rumors surfaced last month about Mayo possibly being traded to the Knicks, but the Knicks' only interest in him is to aid them in acquiring Anthony.

The Knicks will also need at least one first-round draft pick to grab Denver's attention, and New York is confident it can get such a pick for Anthony Randolph from one of several clubs. Sources say Indiana was willing to trade a first-round pick to New York for Randolph last summer.

Any Knicks package for Anthony would also likely include some combination of Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari or Landry Fields.

While the Nuggets weren't impressed with those names early in the season, their strong play during the Knicks' resurgence has upped their value, according to sources.

Meanwhile, the Nuggets continue to discuss a possible three-team deal with the Nets and Pistons. In a deal that could include more than 13 players, the Nets would receive Anthony, Chauncey Billups and Detroit's Richard Hamilton while Denver would get Nets rookie Derrick Favors, Devin Harris, two first-round draft picks and several other minor players.

But even if the clubs agree to a deal, Anthony could kill it by refusing to sign an extension to play long-term in New Jersey. Several sources say Anthony does not want to play in New Jersey and has thus far given no indication that he would sign such an extension.

Anthony's agent, Leon Rose, has been pushing for a deal with New Jersey and, in an effort to get the star to sign off on the trade, several people have been telling Anthony that New York doesn't want to break up its current team to get him, according to sources.

Sources say that's why Anthony made the curious comment on Monday in which he wondered whether the Knicks even wanted him.

"New York is playing well right now. I don't think they're looking at me," Anthony said. "They wouldn't want me to come in there and mess what they have up. That's what I've read."

But the Knicks are very interested in Anthony. The club's preference would be to sign him as a free agent next summer and thereby keep their current roster intact.

But in that scenario, Anthony would not receive the $65 million extension and with a new collective bargaining agreement on the horizon, he would risk losing millions of dollars by entering free agency.

If Anthony eventually nixes a move to New Jersey and tells Denver he will only sign an extension with New York, the Nuggets would likely either trade him to the Knicks or a club like Houston that would be willing to trade for him without his signing an extension.

Dream situation...

http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=4kyuuoj

Nuggets get Mayo, Gallo (or Chandler) and Curry's expiring and a 1st rounder from Memphis. Memphis get a cheap guy with a load of potential in Randolph and a low-risk, high-reward piece in Azubuike (he has some insurance thing, which would save the Grizz some money if he isn't fit) and probably a second rounder from the Knicks. Knicks get Melo.

The absolute perfect situation, would be including Chandler in the deal and sending him to the Grizz for Gasol...

http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=4t6fjqt

Highly unlikely, but if the Knicks could somehow get their hands on Gasol and Melo...

PG: Raymond Felton/Toney Douglas
SG: Landry Fields/Roger Mason
SF: Carmelo Anthony/Bill Walker
PF: Amar'e Stoudemire/Shawn Williams
C: Marc Gasol/Ronny Turiaf

That would get me super excited.

Fred Kerber's sources tell him that a trade that would send Carmelo Anthony to the Nets could come soon, possibly this weekend. The trade is the same that has been reported for the last few days, with Chauncey Billups and Richard Hamilton also coming to New Jersey. One issue is the Nets' schedule. They play three games in four days, starting in L.A. on Friday

With two scorers in Melo and STAT the Knicks need a glue guy like Fields to help keep things flowing.

The Knicks need to make sure their roster remains somewhat balanced. Either way, Melo still won't solve their interior D.

If the Knicks somehow get Marc Gasol too it'll be the second Gasol robbery in two years to a large NBA market. They'll be elevated to instant contender.

It's about tied. Gallo/Fields combo still play harder on D. So I still rather have these two guys.

If the Knicks give up either Chandler or Gallo + another bench guy (Azubuike or Randolph) I think it could make the team better. Give up more than that, and I think they will regress a bit.

But with Melo and his 20+ shots to go with Amares 20+plus shots, they'll lose the offensive balance that has helped them win games this season.

It will take time to figure out. I rather have three solid, dependable wingers on both ends than one really good scorer who doesn't always play consistently on D.

And getting Melo won't solve their biggest hole, interior D, either. Just saying.

Get the guy they want in carmelo, get a legit center who would bang down low with amare, veteran guard in allen with playoff expierence.

NUGGETS RECIEVE:

Wilson Chandler
Hasheem Thabeet
Roger Mason

Get 3 young players in Mayo, Chandler, Thabeet plus a 3 point specialist in mason.

GRIZZLIES RECIEVE:
Landry Fields
Eddy Curry
Timofey Mozgov
Bill Walker

Get a young promising player in Fields, huge expiring contract in Curry, a young center in Mozgov, bench player in Walker.

4 way trade

NYK Trade: Wilson Chandler, Eddy Curry, Kelenna Azubuike, Landry Fields, Anthony Randolph, Bill Walker, Andy Rautins
NYK Receive: Carmelo Anthony, Al Harrington, Anthony Carter, Melvin Ely, Sebastian Telfair

Nugs Trade: Carmelo Anthony, Al Harrington, Anthony Carter, Melvin Ely
Nugs Receive: OJ Mayo, Wilson Chandler, Eddy Curry, Kelenna Azubuike, Minnesota 1st round pick

Grizz Trade: OJ Mayo
Grizz Receive: Landry Fields

Wolves Trade: Sebastian Telfair, 1st round pick
Wolves Receive: Anthony Randolph, Bill Walker, Andy Rautins

NYK does it because they pick up Carmelo
Nugs are able to pick up a young rising star in Mayo, a solid wing in Chandler, expirings in Curry and Azubuike, and a 1st round pick. Also, they are able to get rid of Harringtons contract.
Grizz flip Mayo for a younger player with good potential. Mayo has been causing problems on the team so this will help the chemistry.
Wolves apparently already have a deal in place with the Knicks to swap Randolph for thier 1st rounder. Then, they pick up two young, solid players in Walker and Rautins in exchange for their 3rd string PG.

That would be Felton. He has been the glue guy all year for the Knicks.

Felton is playing excellent ball, the best of his career really, but he brings the ball up and orchestrates the offense and pushes the ball in transition...that by default makes him the quarterback. That's a defined role.

But Fields is that other guy who makes the extra pass, gets into the passing lanes, crashes the glass and dives for a loose ball. Things he brings alot more to the table than Felton.

That makes him more a glue guy than Felton...Felton is the point guard. Fields is that guy who does a whatever the team needs at the particular moment, wether it's a rebound, bucket or perimeter defense. That, to me is what a glue guy is.

Those guys are invaluable and far too few of in the league. Luckily my Spurs have George Hill ;)

they most likely will not sign marc this offseason they just signed gay and conley to big contracts plus like randolph better, also u do know mayo has fallen out of the rotation in memphis right? xavier henry is starting, they get a big expiering in curry go out sign a decent center to replace gasol. also draft picks would 100% be involved dont forget that.

We provide the maximum combination of cap relief and assets. If you guys can manage to take Al Harrington and Chauncey Billups off the Nuggets and add multiple picks to the conversation (at least two that are projected high lotto), then you'll have the best package.

NY would get Melo and Gasol
denver would get mayo gallo dahntay jones returns to nuggets and eddy currys expiring also the first pick from the indiana pacers and knicks
pacers will get anthony randolph who already told knicks they will trade 1st round pick for him
grizzles would get al harrington and kelenna azubuike basically either replace oj mayo with kelenna or push gay to shooting guard insert harrington @ small forward keep randolph @ power and hammidi @ center and a 2012 second round pick from knicks

there might be some other parts that move but i could see this being the basic

this is tough decision for the KNICKS. Melo is an elite scorer we all know. but Candler has been huge this year, Fields is a key role player and Gallanari is a top notch stationary shooter whos big for NY...
Its tough whod theyd have to let go and they have to let at least one. I would go with Fields first, but then again you could always just upgrade Chandler with Melo and not lose the not statistical benefits (defense,hustle) Fields brings.

Why are people so stuck on Gallo... He's not that dope!!! Yeah hes a spot up shooter but thats really all he brings to the table, and the idea I thought was to have players who could do the most things possible... if the Nuggets wanted Gallo as a headliner in a deal for Mello I would do that ASAP.
Maybe last year you could describe Gallo as a spot up shooter but this year he's taking it to the hole, getting to the line more frequently than he camps out behind the arc. Gallo is actually pretty good and keeps showing improvement in different aspects of his game, but Melo does it better. I think Gallo is the most expendable if you add Melo, but not all Knick fans feel the same.

It is no more a matter of if he gets traded, but when. Mayo is getting closer to seeing the bright road of sunshine. :clap:

alright all my fellow Knick Fans who say they wouldnt trade Fields and Gallo for Carmelo Anthony, YOU ARE SO DUMB & need to start watching Carmelo actually play. Fields and Gallo together aren't half as good as Melo is. Hes the best scorer in the league, YES he is. He plays with heart(hes not doing it right now cuz he wants out of Denver), and you better believe Amare will make him the greatest player he can be. Stat is the best leader in the NBA.

NY should get Utah involved. Denver likes AK, and Utah would love to save a ton of money since they are currently so far over the luxury. If Utah could switch AK for Eddy Curry & Roger Mason Jr. and save over $10 million (salary & luxury), they might do it. I'm a Utah fan, but I also know that AK isn't part of Utah's future and Utah hates overspending.

:facepalm: First off Azubuike is hurt next Wilson Chandler is up for a raise so you cant have both Melo and Chandler. The knicks get killed on the boards everynight and that is a reason they are looking for a good center, so leaving Chandler at pf is a no no. Gallo would be the guy that New York would want to keep with his small salaray and good potential.;)

Exactly the only way the Knicks end up making a deal with Denver is by getting a 3rd team invovled. Utah seems like a good fit the Knicks have the Curry contract for their salary relief. maybe a trade of NY gets Melo, Utah gets Curry/walker or some1 else, Denver gets AK/gallo or fields/picks/cash

I dont think anyone in the Knicks organization is mad about getting rid of Darko at all. He has been in the league since 03 and is finally having a ok yr on a team that will be luck to crack 25 wins as opposed to the team that gave him up being 6th in the east.

In the end some players will never do good and blossom on some teams and need to find the right fit for them. This is what happened with Darko and now he is looking like a ok center.

I say the Knicks should keep the roster in tact and just wait till the offseason to acquire Melo.

As for the Nuggets trying to trade him, look into a team that is in current playoff contention and willing to rent Melo out for one year, along with getting out of some salary.

3 way trade!

- OKC acquires PF/SF Josh Smith(v/Hawks) & SG Jamal Crawford(V/Hawks)

Start lineup:

C) Collison/Aldrich/Mullins
PF) Smith/DJ White
SF) Durant/Sefolosha
SG) Crawford/Harden
PG) Westbrook/Maynor/Ivey

- Hawks acquire SF Melo & SG JR Smith

C) Pachalia/Thomas/Collins
PF) Hortford/Powell
SF) Melo/Williams/Evans
SG) Johnson/JR Smith/Wilkins

- Nuggets acquire PF/SF J.Green, C N.Kristic, SG's M.Peterson & PF/SF S.Ibaka, PF P.Sy & 2011 1st rd pick(v/OKC).

The Nuggets have no interest in O.J. Mayo, killing a possible three-team trade between also involving the Knicks and Grizzlies, sources tell ESPN.com.
It's back to square one for Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks, who are now likely feeling even more pressure from the Nets. Reports are surfacing that the three-team deal with the Nets, Nuggets and Pistons are re-heating up and a deal could be reached in principle as soon as next week. At that point, Carmelo would have to decide if he's willing to sign an extension in New Jersey. Jan. 14 - 11:58 am et

Grizz flip Mayo for a younger player with good potential. Mayo has been causing problems on the team so this will help the chemistry.


Acting a fool when he was losing money in a card game and getting a black eye over it does NOT constitute causing team problems; only fists and smart *** remarks were all that were used.
OJ actually wants to stay in Memphis. On the news tonight (www.wmctv.com ). I feel bad for him because I think he's a goner for Memphis. We had such high expectations for him and the ceiling is here already. IF he's traded away, I wish him well and success on a new team.
