Not sure if this has been posted or not. This Melo-drama is really starting to get insane.

Regarding the article, I would never give up Noah for Melo. What do you guys think?

If they trade Noah that would be a big mistake for Bulls. They will be the weaker version of Oklahoma City Thunder in the East.

i am pretty sure melo wants to go to knicks and thats where he will end up....on the other hand doubt bulls would do a noah for melo coz they will be givin up their center....

Don't see how Melo fits on the Bulls. He's not a SG, doesn't play defense, isn't efficient, and just annoys me.

Bulls fans dont seem to want Melo, at least most of us dont. We need a SG...and he's not that. Plus, he requires the ball a lot which doesnt work for us

I would love Melo on this team but I just don't want to give up Noah.

Taj Gibson, James Johnson, Omer Asik, Kyle Korver and 2-3 future first round picks for Melo and I would do it all day.

this is easily turning into lebron 2.0

but anyway idk what will the denver ask for
maybe gibson + picks

but if they do ask for noah . i will surely pass on that deal do to the fact is very rare to get a big man now and days

not even Korver though because he's suddenly come out of his slump and is draining his 3's

Chicago is more realistic than new jersey. Its up to melo

But no for noah.. But if we can get a third team involved then who knows..

But like I said .. Chicago is & has a better chance then nj and no way for noah..

Idec though.. I'm not goina wait for melo anyway.. If he comes he comes

Tmo440
01-19-2011, 05:02 PM
The Bulls are a legit championship contending team if they can land Carmelo without giving up Noah. I wouldn't even care if Bogans is our starting shooting guard at that point. A line up of:
PG: Derrick Rose aka MVP
SG: Non existent aka Keith Bogans
SF: Carmelo Antohy
PF: Carlos Boozer
C: Joakim Noah

It would be sick if we could land Melo without giving up Noah, I just don't see it happening without a thrid team getting involved.

What are you talking about? Nets have tried a lot to get Melo. He obviously doesn't want to sign an extension with them. So you want them to trade a crap ton of talent for a half year rental? On a team that has 0 chance to win anything?

You're right, my bad. I just don't understand the thought process of players sometimes. He wants to play in NY, the Nets are moving to Brooklyn in 2 years. He wants to make money, I'm sure the Nets are more than willing to give him a hefty contract. He wants to win, the Nets are a lottery team with plenty of picks to go around. Whether they rebuild in the draft, or trade their picks for better players, either way they can create a very solid team.

Nets deal is much better. Favors has a ton of potential, and two first round draft picks with Murphy is more attractive then an expiring, a mediocre player in Gallo, and one draft pick.

I also included Fields who has had a far more impressive rookie season that Favors (yeah yeah system I know). Favors screams of bust or Tyrus Thomas/Stromile Swift remake. It should be more than one draft pick according to Walsh.

As far as Noah for Melo goes, no way would I make that deal. An offense only player on a team that has two primary offensive options and a solid third option for one of the three or four best centers in basketball. Seems like a horrible move for the immediate future in Chicago.

IMO, and I'm not saying this as an angry Nets fan or anything, but I feel like Chicago shouldn't even bother with this guy. Nuggets probably will ask for Noah, Deng, gibson, draft picks etc.

I think they made it pretty clear to Denver that Noah can't be had, otherwise they would've traded him instead of signing him to a contract extension.

Deng, Gibson, James Johnson, 2 1st round picks...take it or go **** off cuz we're gonna be a top 4 team in the East regardless.

You really fail to understand Noah's impact on this team. The only reason we've been winning without him is because we've had a soft schedule. Come playoff time, we're screwed without him.

Yahoo is now reporting what slam is.

Anthony’s agents courting Bulls


With trade discussions with the New Jersey Nets having broken off, the representatives for Carmelo Anthony(notes) are engaging the Chicago Bulls with hopes of pushing them into becoming a serious bidder for the Denver Nuggets star, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

Anthony has long been enthusiastic about a possible trade to the Bulls, but Denver and Chicago officials had been previously unable to come to terms on a deal. Bulls executives John Paxson and Gar Forman have investigated the possibility of acquiring Anthony, but thus far haven’t been willing to include the one player the Nuggets most covet: center Joakim Noah(notes).

Anthony’s agents are under pressure to make a deal happen for the All-Star forward, who sources said has become an increasingly unhappy client. The Nuggets need to agree on a package with a team in which Anthony’s willing to sign a contract extension. Talks with New Jersey and Anthony’s preferred choice, the New York Knicks, have dragged on since Anthony asked for a trade in August.

Nevertheless, William Wesley – Worldwide Wes – is expected to travel to Chicago for Bulls games on Thursday and Saturday against the Dallas Mavericks and Cleveland Cavaliers, a source said. Wesley unsuccessfully pushed LeBron James(notes) to sign with the Bulls as a free agent, and now has an interest in Anthony ending up there. Wesley represents Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau for CAA.

Despite that Leon Rose is certified as the agent of record for Anthony, everyone in the NBA knows Wesley is responsible for delivering the Nuggets star to CAA and is hands-on when trying to push teams into deals for the agency’s clients.

Chicago has wanted the Nuggets to take forward Luol Deng(notes) as a cornerstone to the deal, but Denver hasn’t been interested in absorbing the three years and $40 million left on his contract after this season. The Nuggets want an array of young players and picks the Bulls will have a difficult time providing. Still, Chicago badly needs another scoring option and Anthony is one of the NBA’s elite offensive players.

Noah is recuperating from wrist surgery and is targeting a late February return. Thibodeau is an immense believer in Noah and values his defensive and rebounding presence in the middle. He’s also considered him an underrated offensive player. The Bulls signed Noah to a five-year, $60 million contract extension in the preseason.

The Knicks continue to talk with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Indiana Pacers about trading Anthony Randolph for a first-round pick to send to Denver as part of a package for Anthony. The Knicks have assurances they can get a pick for Randolph and have been canvassing the league to find another first-rounder that could be used in a deal for Anthony. There are teams willing to sell their picks for $3 million, especially in what’s considered to be an unspectacular draft class this year.

Meanwhile, Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov announced on Wednesday that the team is no longer pursuing Anthony. Prokhorov said he canceled a planned meeting with Anthony for Wednesday because he was tired of how long the negotiations had lasted.

The Nets had been in serious discussions with the Nuggets about a three-team deal also involving the Detroit Pistons.

The key components of the deal would have sent Anthony, Chauncey Billups(notes) and Richard Hamilton(notes) to the Nets, and Devin Harris(notes), Derrick Favors(notes), Anthony Morrow(notes) and draft picks to Denver. The Nuggets were also trying to include Renaldo Balkman(notes) in the deal – and bring back rookie Damion James(notes) – but the Nets had resisted exchanging those players, sources said

Melo is better than Noah, no doubt, but the thing is, most fans don't realize how much Joakim actually means to the team. He's basically Rose's older brother, and I seriously have my doubts that Rose would be in favor of trading Joakim in a package for Carmelo. Plus, the Bulls are a lot closer to being a true competitor than most think. We need a starting SG, and there's no reason to blow up the team for a SF.

Melo for Gibson, James Johnson, Omer Asik, and 2 1st round picks is all I offer if I'm Gar Forman.

That's why it won't happen.

You have to get Melo here, as I assume Boozer will be getting hurt and missing time yearly. Noah is good and all, but Melo puts us in a different category and makes us a contender for a long time. Also we don't have much need for Noah, that we have Kurt Thomas. Our defense went from #5 to #1 when we replaced Noah with Kurt Thomas in the starting lineup. Also Rose and Melo would be like a 1a/1b thing for a few years until Rose overtakes Melo. And then you have to figure the contract situation. Trading Deng and Noah for Melo alleviates some of the money we need to resign Rose.

You crazy dude.

Melo doesn't solve the problem of our need for a SG, and we'll have to gut our bench to get him AND give up Noah which, besides what he contributes on the court, also brings a lot of intangibles to our team. He's the second half of our heart and soul on this team along with Rose.

Consider also that we don't know what the CBA will be yet... we just don't need Melo at all and he doesn't fit well

There also is no reason to wait on the Char pick either, that pick is restricted and wont be ours this year. Char is abd and that wont be our pick next year either umless they improve alot. It's a great pick to have but it is rstricted. We wont get that pick this year and probally not next year either. Unless Char imporoves alot next season. We might not even see that pick '14 if Char really doesn't get it's act together. Io have confidence MJ wont have there act togehter. We really cant wait that 'til 13 or '14 to cash in on that pick. It needs to be traded this season or offseason for SG the best SG that moves well w/o the ball and hits 3pts.

Deng doesn't suck. However Deng has a horrible contract and I don't know why people think Denver would want that.

Deng & Noah make a combined $22,3 million next year and $24,4 the year after that. That is about half your cap space right there, and those players certainly won't win you any titles. It would strap Denver for years, leave them without a #1 go-to guy and unable to sign another star player. It would completely screw up their rebuilding. They wouldn't get any draft picks of any value either.

The only way Denver considers this is if they get really desperate and afraid to be left with nothing (and Chicago would be willing to give up Noah all of a sudden, which purely based on talent and health I'd do in a heartbeat).

I also don't understand what the Nuggets dislike so much about the NY offer. If they can get Eddy's contract, two out of three of Chandler/Gallinari/Fields + a pick or maybe two and/or another cheap player like Anthony Randolph I think that is the best trade offer they are going to get.

Provided the Knicks are actually prepaired to give up all that, of course, as rumoured before.

Denver gets cap space + cheap young talented players. NY gets a second star player. Seems to me like everybody gets what they want & need.

I'm still not ruling out a ploy by NJ's owner, only to have Denver come crawling back to them later with less demands.

I keep seeing those threads in the Bulls forum as the top thread when you browse along the list of NBA team forums, but I keep wondering how you expect to realisticly aquire those players with the trading pieces you'd be willing to give up for them.

Taj Gibson is the only player on the Bulls roster I consider in the same range (I think Mayo is worth more), and I don't think Afflalo is even available. If Denver rebuild he is exactly the kind of player they'd want to keep.

JR smith is probably possible, but is he worth giving up your main depth at the big man position for? Those are generally harder to replace than shooting guards.

I knew as soon as the nets pulled out, the stories would start for other teams. Now its the Bulls, next week the rockets and by Valentine's day it will be a 3 team deal involving Dallas and Orlando.

I'm not sure how he would work on the Bulls since Rose is the #1 option and they tied up too much money in Boozer to make him the #3 threat. They need more of a compliment to Rose's game, not somebody who will compete for his shots. I really think that Rudy Fernandez for a pick or two would fill in the holes for Chicago.

That pick is heavily protected, so no...it isn't overly valuable.

Top-14 protected in the 2012 Draft, top-12 protected in 2013, top-10 protected in 2014, top-8 protected in 2015 and unprotected in the 2016 Draft.

I would like Melo, but I was wrong about Noah. His absence kills us in the post game, and Melo is not a need right now. A SG is. However, getting Melo would still be good enough if we can get him for the right price.

You put Rose, Melo, Boozer, and Noah on the same court, you have yourself the best team in the NBA. Enough with the "Rose needs the ball in his hands." If you watch Bulls games, you'll see Rose playing off the ball 30-40 percent of the time and that's where Melo fits in perfectly. Not to mention, he could hit spot up jumpers if need be. Nevertheless, it's pie in the sky but definitely not impossible.

Melo wants to go to a contender. Knicks are his favorite, but I still think he would play for other teams. If the Bulls are able to trade for him and not ruin their team, I think he would do it. Chicago has more of an upside than NYK IMO. They have a great team and just need a star like him. If LBJ went to Chicago I think they would have the best record in the East. It would have been an easier transition for him as well.

I see three things happening with melo.

1) They take the bulls offer
2) Melo stays in denver then signs with nyk in the offseason
3) They find a team that accepts a one year rental

Right now to me I see zero chance that the nuggets are interested in any kind of offer from the knicks otherwise this deal would have been done already, so if melo stays in denver I see him signing with the knicks in the offseason.

I also see a low possibility the nuggets trade with the Bulls. Me personally as a bulls fan, I don't think he's worth that much. Nuggets fans will disagree, but all fans know they never get back equal worth. Personally, the most I would trade for melo is Deng, James Johnson, our first round pick, and a combination of either bogans, taj, or asik. If denver wants to find a third team to take on dengs contract then do it, but if you guys don't accept our offer then **** off, our team is flourishing with out you, deng is playing great, and we'll go after a an actual need, a shooting guard.

http://blogs.bulls.com/2011/01/bulls-melo-here-we-go-again/


So Carmelo Anthony is not as dumb and greedy as we were led to believe.

No, he’s not going to the New Jersey Nets in a trade, which Nets owner and oligarch (I love covering oligarchs) Mikhail Prokhorov announced Wednesday in arriving back in the U.S., that the trade talks had become a distraction, apparently denying the Nets a chance for 12 wins and to really create space between themselves and the Cavs for last in the East, and the Nets no longer would pursue Anthony.

I’ve been in situations like this before. Usually when a girl I was dating called to break up and I said the line was busy but I was calling to break up with her.

So with that news came a flood of emails instructing me to advise the Bulls to try to trade for Anthony.

Especially with reports from sources who may or may not know that Anthony’s “people” are pushing for him to go to the Bulls now.

OK, the Bulls will take him.

But why now all of a sudden? You mean Anthony wanted to go to the Nets, to play in Newark, all this time and why we’d heard nothing about the Bulls was because he liked the idea of going to the Nets?

C’mon, how ridiculous is that?

The truth is Anthony was never going to the Nets. Sure, the Nuggets wanted to trade him there, and sure the Nets wanted him, and sure the Nuggets could have, and sure the Nets could have taken him. And then seen him leave as a free agent this summer and go to the Knicks.

The complication in it all, and it remains one, is the new collective bargaining agreement. Anthony has a three year extension waiting at about $22 million a season. The conventional wisdom is if he waits until a new deal is signed, he risks a new salary ceiling and perhaps having to accept a deal at maybe up to $10 million less per season. Although no one knows yet what the new deal will be. So that’s all speculation for now, though everyone seems to believe Anthony would make less waiting it out and, say, signing with the Knicks as a free agent.

He does want it all, the Knicks and the money, sort of your black and white cookie and to eat it as well.

And if you want to go somewhere in what may be your last major deal of your career, why not go where you want to go?

I can understand that.

The Bulls, by the way, remain interested in Anthony and have been all season. They have been in contact with the Nuggets and Anthony’s representatives regularly.

They have mostly been told not to bother, though you never know. But as we know it’s never over until it’s over.

So why not keep trying? I’ve heard the Bulls did sign up for one of those mobile phone unlimited call and text deals. Sweet. Call the Nuggets and agent Leon Rose as much as you want and it doesn’t cost extra.

From what I have heard from my sources who may or may not know, certainly every bit as good as theirs, is Anthony only wants to play for the Knicks. I have often written if he wants to win his best chance is playing with a Bulls team that includes Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer.

So how come we don’t hear that much if it’s so obvious?

It seemed obvious for LeBron James as well, represented by the same agency and the same so called power brokers like, and James didn’t seem all that interested, either, and basically did what he felt like.

Would James be better off with Wade, Bosh, Z and Arroyo or Rose, Noah, Boozer and Taj? Seems obvious to us, though our beaches aren’t open quite yet.

But neither are New York’s.

For whatever personal reason, and I do hear it’s mostly that, Anthony wants to play for the Knicks. He basically told the Nets and Nuggets that, which finally ended months of rumors which, now we know, had no real basis.

So what happens now?

The Knicks can step forward with a trade offer, though I also have heard Anthony doesn’t want to go to the Knicks if a trade involves them giving up too many good players and making it more difficult for them to compete. The Knicks have talked openly about acquiring draft picks, presumably to send on to the Nuggets in a trade. Though it won’t be easy to get good enough picks that would make a difference to the Nuggets.

Likewise, while the Bulls have their own first round pick, since it will be in the 20’s it’s not particularly attractive.

If I were the Nuggets I would keep Anthony and make a playoff run. If they were to say that, things would settle down with their team and they could get in good position and maybe even go a couple of rounds. Playoff games could be worth close to a $1 million per game in revenue. Why not go for that and then clear your roster with contracts for Kenyon Martin and J.R. Smith expiring? And with a big buyout available for Chauncey Billups, the Nuggets could have more cap room than anyone and depending on how the new labor agreement looks there could be teams shedding contracts and the Nuggets could pick up players they want and draft picks.

But, at least for now, the Nuggets seem intent on getting something for Anthony after seeing what occurred with James and Bosh. So they could deal with the Knicks and perhaps get some marginal draft picks and a player or two like Landry Fields and/or Wilson Chandler. It’s something. Yes, not much.

Then there’s the rental deal.

There might be teams willing to take a chance they could persuade Anthony to resign there, like Dallas. The Mavs have a short window with Dirk Nowitzki and Mark Cuban is a gambler. You could see him offering the expiring contract of Caron Butler and maybe a prospect like Roddy Beaubois and taking a shot at a run for the title given the Lakers and Spurs don’t seem unbeatable.

The Rockets also have been mentioned as a rental team given they have an excess of draft picks from the trade with the Knicks last season and are desperate for some attention. They’d probably take a shot with nowhere to go with the weak roster they have, though Anthony has told friends he’d never under any circumstances resign with Houston. He wasn’t as definitive about the Mavericks.

What about others? Would the 76ers take a shot? Maybe they just want to dump Andre Iguodala and would risk it. Maybe Atlanta with Josh Smith, which has been rumored as the Hawks know they aren’t good enough to win as composed. Heck, maybe Memphis takes a rental knowing they’re losing Zach Randolph anyway and being able to make the playoffs with Anthony is enough. What about the Thunder? No way they’re paying Jeff Green, who’d be a heck of a piece for Denver. Maybe Anthony is a final piece for them in the West this season and then they’ll be way under the cap even if he leaves and can go into free agency. What does Phoenix have to lose? Much of that seems unfeasible, but figure most everyone to try to get back into this now.

So could the Bulls get into that picture?

Well, they’d never do a rental or risk it. They don’t have enough players and picks to gamble like that. They’d have to do an extend and trade, which would be possible.

Anthony has had passing interest in the Bulls, though more so earlier in the season when the Nuggets were asking for Joakim Noah. By signing Noah to an extension, the Bulls effectively eliminated a deal with Noah given the difficulty of matching salaries with Noah’s restrictive contract status as a base year and so called poison pill player. Plus, the Bulls decided not to give up Noah for Anthony. Anthony was said to be insulted the Bulls would chose Noah over him, though he never at the time indicated he’d sign an extension with the Bulls.

Obviously, the Bulls would have to trade Luol Deng to match any salary. Denver has no interest in Deng because of his contract. So could the Bulls trade him elsewhere? Heck, would they given how well he’s played and that it would cost them at least another player and perhaps two?

It likely would have to be a deal into a trade exception with someone like the Cavs or Raptors. Would they take him for nothing? You figure, but those teams supposedly don’t want long term deals with the new labor deal coming. It could be like a Kirk Hinrich deal where you’d also have to give them draft picks. I’ve heard Cleveland primarily wants draft picks.

But then you might not have enough left to deal for Anthony, a trade which would certainly have to include Taj Gibson. So you’ve given up Deng and probably your draft picks and the Charlotte pick from the Tyrus Thomas deal.

Although the Bulls have regularly inquired about Anthony, they have not proposed any specific deals, sources say.

Are you better off keeping what you have and then this summer going into the market for a shooting guard without having to give up at least Deng, Gibson and draft picks?

And that would be if Anthony wants to go to the Bulls, which all indications I’ve gotten are he does not at this time.

So this may well play out right to the trading deadline Feb. 24 and you can just hear Richard Hamilton and the Pistons screaming as Hamilton was supposed to be part of that deal along with Billups.

Here we go again.

I know practically every Bull fan on PSD doesn't want anything to do w/ Melo and most prefer an upgrade at SG, but if they can find a third team willing to take on Deng's contract why not do it? He's an upgrade over Deng and would provide the offense this team lacks. Sure he's a high volume shooter, but you take a talent like his and let good coaching and level headed players sort out the rest.

The Bulls are reconsidering whether they should make an attempt to trade for Denver’s Carmelo Anthony.
On Wednesday, New Jersey owner Mikhail Prokhorov announced at a news conference that the Nets are pulling out of Anthony trade talks.


Yahoo.com reported Wednesday that Anthony confidant William Wesley has approached the Bulls about making another run at Anthony.

It is widely believed Denver has insisted center Joakim Noah be included in any Anthony deal, which the Bulls are reluctant to do. It would be more difficult to trade Noah now that he’s signed a long-term extension. But the Bulls have gone 12-6 with Noah on the sideline with a thumb injury.

The Bulls are discussing whether Anthony would give them a better chance to win an NBA title, according to a league source. They might also wait to see if Denver’s price drops closer to the Feb. 24 trade deadline and the Nuggets will accept a package of Luol Deng, Taj Gibson and first-round picks.

Anthony can opt out of his contract and become a free agent this summer. With a lockout possible, there have been suggestions Anthony would rather sign an extension with a new team now.

I have to agree with this Carmelo Anthony is a top 10 player ( when motivated) the problem is Nuggets don't want Deng's contract. I honestly think getting Melom if they can give up Deng and bench players and picks. They won't even need to upgrade at SG. Just plug Korver in there for 3 point shooter. Melo's is a 28 ppg guy ( again when motivated)

Melo needs to really think about how important the $$ is

instead of dumping your money into a record label that will never blow, maybe he should have invested in something with more potential.

if he really wants to play with the knicks, take the pay cut and make up the difference somewhere else (NOT A RECORD LABEL)

You guys are ridiculus if Melo is willing to sign an extension and play next to Boozer and D Rose you make the deal. The three compliments each other well with D Rose being the passer and none of them are stat lovers they like to win. Noah is just a big man who plays def they can be found a dime a dozen.A top 5 NBA player who can score and is more mature now than as a youngster is the things that win Championships. No one star can win a championship without a Robin and Melo and Rose can be great for the next 7 plus years. If not enjoy making the playoffs to only be put out in the first round. Id throw Noah ***** in the deal in a heartbeat and get Chris Anderson for depth at center.

Who would want Deng? No one took him last summer for the so called opinions of a "three way deal".

Philly? Iggy>Deng and they both are overpaid long term, doesn't make sense. Yes Philly has interest but the deal would of been done long before if any interest was actual interest.

You can dream, and that's a great dream. I just see it as very improbable.

Melo going to the knicks is nice and all but I don't think that automatically makes you even necessarily contendors, really.

I think Melo would do better contending staying with the nuggets. No offense but the nuggets are a stronger team than the knicks right now.

honestly, IMO..... the only thing holding down this deal is dengs contract. If Dengs contract didnt have another 3 years on it and say only had 1, deng,gibson, plus someone else and 3 1sts if they wanted to give that up is way better then anything the knicks could offer.

deng is a pretty good player at 18 and 6 averages for a 3rd option who plays good defense
