View Full Version : Kerber- Expect Melo to be in Nets uniform next friday

The Nets on Friday continued to try to put the finishing touches on a trade for Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony.

Sources who were extremely optimistic Thursday the deal would be completed shortly were even moreso Friday, with one saying chances of the trade have increased from 90 percent to 95 percent.

The deal could be agreed to principle before Tuesday, then finalized later next week.

If completed, Anthony is expected to meet with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov on Tuesday or Wednesday. The billionaire is scheduled to attend the Nets' Wednesday home game against the Jazz, which is Russian Culture Night at Prudential Center.

One person directly involved in the trade scenario suggested that if all goes as planned and the deal is finalized, Anthony could play his first game for the Nets next Friday against the Pistons, the other party involved in the proposed three-team, 14-player deal.

It is believed the Nuggets would like to include one more player in the deal to help with their salary situation, but it would be Renaldo Balkman, not Al Harrington. It is unknown if the Nets would add another player to the deal.

No, the Knicks are still better than the Nets, with Melo. I believe if Prokhorov sits down with him, and discusses the future plans for the team, he'll definitely extend. Jay-Z can come after I suppose. But this certainly brings back the rivalry of the Hudson.

I mean they would def be better at 4/5 positions but for Amare. The record might not be better but that will more than likely due to the fact that they absolutely suck at this moment.

They're playing today, tomorrow, Sunday, and Wednesday, and Kerber says he could play Friday. Hypothetically speaking, if the Nets lost those 4 games, we would be at 10-32, a game after the midway point. The Nets would have to win the majority of the rest of their games to reach playoff contention, which isn't necessarily impossible. They can probably get at least 8th, maybe 7th, or possibly higher depending on how the team plays. But next year, I would expect them to progress as the team gels more. BTW, i'm assuming the playoff locks are boston, miami, orlando, chicago, new york, and atlanta.

This just reminded of something. For those of you saying that Melo really wants that extension, why hasn't he signed it then? If money was his main concern, he would've bleepin signed the damn thing IN JUNE! This should tell you that maybe he simply wants a change of scenery, preferrably New York. Yes, New Jersey has the much better pieces to trade for him. I get that. Contrarily, they won't do the deal if Melo doesn't assure them he'll sign an extension with them, something Melo's had forever to do. The fact that he hasn't said it yet, tells me everything I need to know about the end result.

IF Melo goes to NJ, the Knicks are still going to try to get somebody else good using Curry's expiring with a combination of a few of their young players. Just because NY might miss on Melo doesn't mean they are done dealing. And to say NJ would be ahead of NY is just plain stupid. NJ would have too much catching up to do for it to make a difference this season.

your logic is incredible; clearly there are only definites and extremes and there is no such thing as negotiating leverage; it is also clearly impossible that Melo hasn't signed because he would rather force his way out of Denver (and likely to New York), but is still willing to sign an extension where necessary because of concerns relating to the CBA and wanting to get paid

:facepalm: Because he wants NO PART in Denver. He wants to be traded to a big city and his preference of teams to be traded to was NY, Chicago, and NJ seems like a 1A because they will be in Brooklyn soon. He could just wait and sign with the Knicks but then he loses a helluva lot of money in the offseason which by all accounts he doesn't want to risk.

Couldn't be any more wrong. Felton and Fields are A LOT better than Billups and Hamilton at this point. If you look at advanced metrics Anthony isn't THAT much better than Wilson Chandler. Amare is much better than anyone in the Nets front court. Our bench would also be better after this trade goes through. Plus the Knicks will be players at the trade deadline, and could add some guys or wait until offseason and plug some holes, and become a solid top 4 team in the east while the Nets will struggle to make the playoffs.

"David Berri, the Southern Utah University economics professor that developed Wins Produced, "concluded that New Jersey would win about 30 games over a full season if the latest reported 13-player, three-team deal goes through, which involves sending Derrick Favors and Devin Harris to Denver. The Nets would also acquire Chauncey Billups and Richard Hamilton."

The fact is he wants the money and go to a team closer to home. He prefers the Knicks but if the Knicks cant work a deal out with the Nuggets he is willing to sign the extension with the Nets. Since the Nuggets have no interest in letting him go to the Knicks they keep on saying that the Knicks have no one they like so I believe he eventually has to either grow some balls and tell the Nuggets I only want the Knicks or settle for the Nets and the $$$$.

I wasn't trying to persuade you of anything. Why would I waste time trying to persuade someone whose mind has been made up already and on irrational grounds. That would be a fool's errand (better suited for you actually).

You have no reasoning whatsoever for your comments. You attempt to suggest that he would have signed the extension, but overlook the ramifications of such a decision. Moreover, you view the world as a having only two extremes when in fact there are many shades of gray in this scenario. It appears from what we know that Melo wants out of Denver as a bottom line and into New York as a top choice. Where he stands on all of the options in between is much harder to decipher. Logic would suggest however, that he is in fact willing to go to New Jersey or he would have ended this charade long ago (or forced its end by making a definitive statement he would not sign an extension there). Please feel free to continue to post your baseless opinions and the facts that you are reminded of. Everyone else will continue to think you are an idiot.

I've been leading the "Billups to Miami" charge for weeks. Chauncey really loves Denver though, so we'll have to wait and see.

This would put the Nets above the Knicks but it all falls on Melo, and whether he'll resign...

I rather see him on the Knicks to be honest make another near title contender.. I think that's where he'll end up doing unless Jay Z offers the ROC

no it doesnt

BTW, the trade doesn't make the Nets better than the Knicks, that's kinda ridiculous to me. Raymond Felton would tear them up, and noone on New Jersey matches up well with Amare.

And the Warriors were blowing out the Heat before they lost... what does that even mean??

It's an excuse for why Raymond and Amar'e PnR'ed the Nets to death. Supposedly, Farmar couldn't keep up and cut off those angles.

Whatever you want it to mean, I come from my perspective and you come yours.

Explain.

The reason why the previous deals in the past collapsed was because of reluctances of the trading partners, especially Denver, to give up players. It's tough to be a first year GM and your first task is to trade the player who is the leader, source of merchandising, star, etc. Additionally, Carmelo never told anyone he isn't opposed to the Nets, while telling teams such as Washington and Charlotte otherwise. And lastly, with the news that Leon Rose is pushing the deal, that has to have some implication Carmelo is willing to extend with the team.

If Melo wanted to go to the Nets it would be really easy for him to come out and say "I'm fine with going to the Nets."

There would no problem with that, but he hasn't, and clearly this is a snag in the deal. I think Denver and NJ are scaring Melo into thinking he's going to the Nets even if he doesn't want to, so that will agree to sign the extension.

It's getting very ugly.

True that must mean that even though the Nets 12 games back in the standings they must be better because they were up by 10 until Harris was hurt.

since he hasn't signed with denver, or because of every media outlet reporting he's trying to go to new york?

A simple "I will consider my options in the off-season" would shut it all up. And he's not willing to do that.

Using a excuse like my player got injured at some point in the game is no different then saying my player was in foul trouble or had a off game. In the end its a 48 min game and being up 10 and it not being 2mins or less in the 4th really means nothing.

I also cant wait for it all to be over and we get back to wins and loses. I for one would much rather get Melo in the off season and I believe someone has pointed out that the extension is good all the way up to July 1st meaning Melo can hold out and tell the Nuggets Im going to the Knicks regardless so you can either sign and trade and get scraps or get nothing and be traded on draft night.

Just something to put out there.

I will only believe it when it happens. There are rumors a Darkhorse is in trade talks with the Nuggets. They don't have a stronger package then the Nets; however, they have more to offer then the Knicks. It is also a team that Melo has stated he would sign and extension to play for....

My guess. Magic or Lakers....


IMO, if I am a Nets fan I would be tired about hearing about Melo by now. It is almost obvious he is the reason this trade is being held up not the Nets,Pistons or Nuggets. He is also the one that keeps saying he believes he will be playing with the Nuggets at least a few more weeks. Really Melo, now why would you know that? Oh, because more then likely you are waiting for the Nuggets to accept a deal to a team you want to go to, not a team they get the best offer from. I don't know, these trade talks have been going on way to long for anyone to believe anything with NEts tied to it.

The Nets want Melo.

The Nuggets want the Nets Package.

Melo does not care what the Nuggets want and does not want the Nets, that is how I see it.

Lastly, IMO.. Why would Melo want to go to the NETS, outside it being on the East coast closer to home? The Nets have a bust so far in the making in Lopez, then everyone thinks Rip and Billups alone will be saviors to get Melo to come. Those are two aging Vets. IMO, Melo is already in a better situation in Denver and wants out. NJ would lose one if not there current best player in Harris. Billups then would like have his contract purchased so he could leave.

I just don't see Melo saying yes to this. He can hang out as long as he wants, he has that right.

I'll take this as an encouraging sign, but I refuse to "expect" anything until the ink is dry on the contract.
