Wow, this is surprising. It really looks like Melo is going to NY if NJ is even discussing this with Denver.

So the trade would end up:

New York: Carmelo, Billups and filler
New Jersey: Gallinari and Mozgov
Denver: 3 first round picks (2 NJ and Minnesota), Felton and Chandler
Minnesota: would ultimately get Randolph and Curry for the first

I can't imagine how Knicks fans would like Gallinari basically not even moving, to a rival team that has grown to dislike them.

Because Melo to the Knicks is close to being done and it's a separate deal in which NJ gets some players and Denver gets their picks. I don't think Mozgov is involved though.

NJ would just be taking a couple of players that NY has been hesitent on giving up. So Denver, instead of taking two players they are iffy on, still get the additional picks which they wanted, AND the Knicks are still stuck giving up the farm.
Helps NJ build instead of banking on picks that may pan out to be nothing.

02-21-2011, 02:46 PM
This essentially would benefit all three teams. Knicks still get Carmelo, Nuggets will get the picks they desire for the players they don't really desire, and the Nets get a player they liked before the draft who is young and has loads of potential, and Mozgov, for two picks that could be worthless (hopefully the Lakers and Houston picks). I would love to have Gallinari on the Nets, helps with the rebuild

Crackadalic
02-21-2011, 02:47 PM
Even if the New Jersey Nets do not acquire Carmelo Anthony, they still might pull off a trade with the Denver Nuggets, one that would likely be a sore spot for their cross-river rivals in New York, according to high-ranking league officials.

If the New York Knicks send Danilo Gallinari, Raymond Felton, Wilson Chandler and Timofey Mozgov to Denver for Anthony, the Nets are in discussions to then acquire either Gallinari, Felton or Chandler plus Mozgov for two first-round draft picks.

That deal is obviously contingent upon the Knicks trading all those players to Denver for a package headlined by Anthony and Chauncey Billups.

The Nets remain confident that they can acquire Anthony before the deadline, but if he instead is obtained by the Knicks, they see this trade as an alternative way to strengthen their team, the sources said.

The move could also burn the Knicks, who are reluctant to part with so many of their coveted young prospects, even for a player of Anthony's ability. To see a couple of them opening the Nets new arena in Brooklyn could certainly be bothersome to the Knicks franchise.

Sources confirmed to ESPN.com a Friday report from the Bergen (N.J.) Record that New Jersey has agreed in principle to send prized rookie Derrick Favors, former All-Star guard Devin Harris, Troy Murphy (and his expiring contract), Ben Uzoh and four first-round picks to Denver for Anthony, Billups, Shelden Williams, Melvin Ely and Renaldo Balkman. As ESPN.com reported Thursday night, Denver would then use at least one of those future first-round picks to package with Murphy -- either in this trade or in a separate deal -- to a third team yet to be determined.

That deal is contingent on Anthony signing a three-year, $65 million extension to remain in New Jersey long-term.

But the Nuggets are currently embroiled in talks with New York, Anthony's preferred destination. The Knicks are willing to send Gallinari, Chandler, Felton and a first-round pick to Denver, but the Nuggets are pushing for Mozgov, a 7-foot center, to be included in the package.

Landing Mozgov (and then trading him to New Jersey) would be a huge coup for Denver, since it would enable it to get the draft picks it desires, along with some of the Knicks' young talent, along with a savings of roughly $20 million this season.

Felton (2005, No. 5 by Bobcats), Chandler (2007, 23rd by Knicks) and Gallinari (2008, sixth by Knicks) are all former first-round picks. Mozgov, a former six-year pro in his native Russia, was signed as a free agent in July.

I can't see the hard cap falling that much, so many teams would have a lot of trouble trying to shed their contracts and get under the cap.

With that said, if we get this deal done, we'll only have 3 players under contract for 2012. We'd have a pretty substantial amount to get CP3/Deron.

Lo Porto
02-21-2011, 02:58 PM
This has to be a 3 team deal because you can't receive a player via trade then trade him with another player until after 60 days. So Denver could trade Gallinari by himself for a pick and Mozgov by himself for a pick but I don't see how that works financially.

I know you can't deal a new player and an existing player together. I could be wrong but as long as the players you are trading were dealt to the team together, then they can still be shipped together.

If this would have to be a 3 team deal (I don't see how it couldn't be), NY just needs to hold firm. NJ won't trade the farm for a non-extended Melo. It's just that simple. Just do us a favor Denver - trade the guy to NY already.

I would be pretty disappointed if Gallo ended up with the Nets. I think he's on the brink of becoming a very good player in this league, and it's sad that after watching a rooting for him for the past few years he's going to end up with the Nets. He has his times where he can become invisible, but he shows flashes of brilliance sometimes. He has gotten so much better at drawing fouls and getting to the line this year, and will probably only get better.

Mozgov I could care less about. Sure he has potential, but I don't think he will ever reach it. The guy plays no defense, and has hands of stone inside. I can't even begin to tell you how many easy passes he's dropped that would have given him a wide open dunk.

Prokhorov is gonna go all inception on the Knicks owners, and convince them to let the Nets get Carmelo while they're dreaming.

Young and Stupid
02-21-2011, 03:56 PM
I have three theories:

1) This is a ploy by the Nets and Nuggets in an attempt to push the Knicks into taking pieces off the table and forcing Melo to the Nets. The Nuggets prefer the Nets' offer and the Nets really want Melo. The only problem with that theory is that I don't believe that Melo will sign an extension with the Nets.

2) The Nets and the Nuggets have been ****ing with the Knicks the whole time. The Nets knew that Melo would never sign an extension with them and the Nuggets did as well -- as Melo said yesterday "the Nuggets have known all along which teams I would sign an extension with" -- so they played this whole thing up to force the Knicks into offering up a significant amount. In this scenario, the Nets and the Nuggets have been colluding to **** with the Knicks and there were plans for reciprocity after the Knicks were duped into gutting their team. The Nuggets and Nets could have been snickering as the Knicks have been thrown into turmoil. The Knicks have effectively destroyed their front-office and Isiah Thomas has come in and raped (rimshot) the Knicks' savior (Walsh). As Proky said yesterday, "we did our job, we ran up the price for our rival." Hilarious.

3) The Nuggets have been using the Nets all along and the Nets are attempting to save face by doing this. In in this scenario, the Nets have been lying the entire time and understand how important it is to acquire Melo going into Brooklyn. This is the consolation prize.

The second one is the best, but the third one is the most realistic. I think it's a mix of the first and the third. If it's the second, the Nets gain a lot of respect.

If I were the Knicks I would back out kinda like the Nets did, and either Denver comes running back to us after Melo refuses to go to the Nets, and we get him for dirt cheap, or we let the Nets gut their entire team for him. I honestly wouldn't be at all mad if they did this and we didn't get Melo because I think the Knicks are being ****ed with by these two lowly franchises, and are being made to look desperate and incompetent.

I think it's funny how these teams are operating. I'm sure Donnie is close to pulling out. Playing kid's games. Nets really come across as desperate IMO... trying to muddy up the waters. Keep it classy Proky, sheesh. Let them have Chandler/Gallo and Mozgov. They are NOT the answer for NJ, lol.

How are the Nets coming off as desperate? LOL, Prokhorov is forcing the knicks to either watch their young guys across the river or deal for Carmelo, an excellent tactic because it could potentially force the Knicks to end the deal, leading to Carmelo Anthony going to NJ. And if Dolan does the deal, Nets get a great young player in Gallinari, a young center prospect, and people in the Knicks organization would be upset at seeing two nice potential pieces on their rival's roster. Imagine if Gallinari blossoms into a star, and he's a Brooklyn Net?

I'm not sure why no one is thinking the trade is going to be Felton and Mozgov instead of Gallo and Mozgov. We have a point guard already.

i call ********. but if it does happen, i'll be content. we can then draft a sf and move gallo as a 6th man. but again, i call ******** on the whole thing.

Why would the nets do it? They are wasting their picks for garbage players.

Garbage players? They're young talented players who might never be super stars but they have certainly proven they can be legit NBA starters.

net fans are funny. if the knicks back out of this deal today, all the garbage would end today. denver would come running back to ny, and accept half the deal they were getting before. the nets still have no shot at getting melo, they never have and never will. the guy just doesnt want to play for the nets. that's the bottom line, if he did the deal would have been made a month ago.

I updated the thread title as it's now misleading considering we know it wouldn't be a 3 team deal now.

so why not just keep gallinari? trade curry, chandler and/or felton, + 1st round pick for billups, anthony, s. williams, balkman
then go ahead and trade mozgov and anthony randolph to another team(s) (maybe minnesota) for 2 1st round picks and give these picks to denver..
that way they can keep gallo and still not let the nets benefit from this trade

basically new york would be upgrading their team at the cost of a 1st round pick, anthony randolph who doesnt even play and mozgov.. they also get a replacement for mozgov (williams) and randolph (balkman)

Well if thats the case then the Knicks FO is funny for not doing that.. Right?

This is just the dirty Russian billionaire trying to slow down or stop the trade. They have been leaking trade proposals all season. Very unethical

ok i have a question.. so if this trade does go down, is there any way we can possibly get chandler back after the season? i know he's a RFA but i don't know all of that fancy talk.

Haha, I think if he's not resigned here (assuming he is in Denver), he could. Depends on the Knicks cap figures though

I see the Nets trading Devin harris for the rights to ricky rubio, proky's old pointguard over in europe

Just saying a team of Rubio, Gallo, Mozgov, Favors, and Lopez plus a top pick in this years draft is legit
