According to the New York Post, Carmelo Anthony demanded urgent trade from the Knicks before the trade deadline on Thursday. Anthony “told a confidant he preferred to be traded before Thursday’s trade deadline”.

After New York Post published that news, the New Jersey Nets already answered about possible acquiring of Carmelo Anthony. The Nets are even ready to trade Deron Williams who still has not committed to a contract extension while ‘Melo has 3 years on his contract left.

Carmelo Anthony’s discontent with the Knicks organization became so severe after Monday night’s loss to the Bulls, he told a confidant he preferred to be traded before Thursday’s trade deadline, The Post has learned.
According to a person familiar with his thinking, Anthony’s disillusionment stems most from a belief coach Mike D’Antoni and interim GM Glen Grunwald do not trust him. He is surprised that after all the Knicks gave up to trade for him, he has not been asked for more input on personnel decisions, as Deron Williams has with the Nets.

"The organization makes believe his opinions don’t matter,’’ the source said.

However, Tuesday night, a source said Anthony and D’Antoni spoke in an attempt to reconcile their differences and made headway. On Monday night, Anthony only wanted to remain a Knick if he had assurances D’Antoni wouldn’t be back next season.
However, Anthony will not make a formal trade request.
As The Post reported Tuesday, Anthony was told after the Knicks were swept out of the playoffs by the Celtics last April that D’Antoni would not return for this season.
But now Anthony does not believe a decision on D’Antoni’s future is coming soon because D’Antoni and Grunwald, according to the source, are “like a couple.’’
Anthony was unavailable for comment Tuesday as the Knicks did not practice. It is against NBA rules to publicly state a desire to be traded.
According to the source, Grunwald has had just one conversation with Anthony since he became GM. And D’Antoni rarely talks to Anthony after games, especially since Anthony’s return from a groin injury. The Knicks have lost 8 of 10 games since then to fall to 18-24 and out of playoff position.
Anthony is not close to owner James Dolan the way Amar’e Stoudemire is. The source said Anthony gets along best with assistant GM Allan Houston, who eventually could succeed Grunwald.
“He knows Glen doesn’t like him,’’ the source said.
It would seem unlikely — and ill-advised — for the Knicks to pull off a trade for Anthony on such short notice before Thursday’s deadline.
Though Stoudemire lobbied for the Knicks to trade for Anthony, the pair’s friendship has not flourished.
“They’re not as close as people think they are,’’ the source said. “It’s an awkward relationship.’’
Anthony is not jealous of Jeremy Lin’s global fame, according to the source. Lin, the source said, is Anthony’s favorite teammate, and Anthony feels they could be like the Thunder duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
According to the source, when Nuggets general manager Masai Ujiri tried to convince Anthony to stay in Denver last season, he repeatedly told Anthony he never would be able to handle the New York media. But Anthony believes the media has been the least of his problems and wished there was more feedback from his superiors.
Anthony has endured a poor season, shooting just 40 percent from the field while averaging 21.3 points and has not played well recently on defense.
D’Antoni rarely speaks in the same reverential tones about Anthony as he does about Lin, Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler.
When D’Antoni was asked after Monday’s loss to the Bulls if Anthony looked frustrated, D’Antoni replied, “More than normal, you mean? I don’t know. You’ll have to ask him.’’
Anthony appeared agitated on the court during the game and failed to join the huddle after the third quarter, though he said that is not uncommon. Though Anthony has expressed concern about his role in the offense, many play sets contain Anthony post-ups.
Anthony seemed extremely unhappy after the Knicks’ losing streak reached six games in Chicago.
“It [stinks],’’ Anthony said. “The situation we’re in right now [stinks]. Losing basketball games the way we’ve been losing games at the end of the game [stinks]. It’s not a good feeling right now.’’

I'm sure the Nets are offering that trade, because Melo is signed for 4 more years than Williams.

I don't think Melo would want to go to Brooklyn though for two reasons: A.) the supporting cast he would have around him is terrible and B.) the media scrutiny would be absolutely terrible since the Nets are going to be forced onto us as the NYK's biggest rival as soon as they move to Brooklyn.

I think a swap involving Melo for Dwight Howard would be more likely than Melo for Williams. But then again, I don't see NYK taking on Turkoglu's contract. So that would put a hamper in negotiations between NYK-Orlando.

Coaching is not the problem. The system is. In order for a player like Melo to be successful he needs a team and a system that is more defensive oriented which would make up for his short comings. Melo in a Pacers uni would be way more valuable than Melo in a Knicks.

The New York Knicks have learned Carmelo Anthony wants out of New York. The Los Angeles Lakers have inquired about the possibility of acquiring him. They are even prepared to trade Bynum who is uncommitted for the future.

Well, if NY wanrs to hold on to D'Antoni, Melo leaving is the best option for all three parties, especially if they get Deron in return (which I doubt though)

D'Antoni's system needs an elite PG to be effective, and still I don't see him winning a championship. The roster has so much potential but they are completely underachieving

The coach isn't even adjusting his system to play to his strength. Lets be honest, Mike D'Antoni never wanted Carmelo here. Carmelo may come off as an *** in this alleged trade request, but when you have a coach that continually to make backhanded comment towards him into the media, never have dialogue with him as a star/coach should have, tuned out of the offense.....it's either you want me here or not. I don't agree with his alleged trade request, but Knicks have to realize D'Antoni was the wrong coach from the beginning. Everyone knows my distaste for his system. The offense should be 60% Amare and Melo, not 60% Lin and others.

Honestly, I'd rather let Deron walk for nothing then get Melo back for him.

Melo is a loser, hasn't helped his team win anything, is expensive, and would simply keep the Nets in the dreaded 7th-8th seed territory for the remainder of his contract, from which he would probably sign elsewhere.

If, hypothetically, Deron were to leave, I would want some cap relief and picks so we can rebuild or an actual superstar in return.

If you want to lie or post clearly fake news and rumors at least be smart enough to see if it is reasonably close to possible. The Nets would under no circumstance do this with the possibility of getting Dwight via free agency or trade also why would the Nets offer the better player.

NJ/BK presents an entirely perfect situation with him. Bringing in Dwight, having cap space, great young shooters (Morrow/Brooks), a Center that can be moved from an additional player, OH and that Billion dollar arena called the Barclays center...

Didn't say Deron would go to Orlando. If Dwight is re-signing with the Magic, Deron is 100% GONE in the offeason. Most likely to Dallas.

The Nets know this and if they know that Dwight is about to sign extension, the only option is to trade for Carmelo.

Deron is no sure thing to Dallas. Since he wants to play wherever Dwight plays, Dallas would have to clear a lot of cap space just to fit the two in, which frankly will be very difficult (shut up Mavs fans, nobody is taking Marions contract as easily as you think, be realistic). Brooklyn makes the most sense and is clearly the easiest of all things to get done.

These indications have been around for awhile and become reality day after day.

The Knicks need a Coach to have a system to utilize this talent.

Melo is a very good player. but because of his personality its really easy to point your finger at him. I personally dont like the guy, or his game. He was the best player on Team USA.

Melo has to change a bit and so do the Knicks to make it work.

They need players who are unselfish on the Knicks -- before Melo returned and Lin was on a roll, the Knicks were doing well for two big reasons -- passing and strong defense -- two words that are not in the vocob of Carmelo. It wouldnt matter if he was just a bench player but as a star, he is a big part of the chemistry on the team -- Im sure there are a ton of players on the Knicks, including Amare, who would like him gone. I wouldnt mind trading Melo for some good shooters, I dont need a superstar back. Someone who would work with the quick system of D"Antoni.

I'd try to pry Kris Humpries out of the deal as well... send them Lin and Melo for D-Will and Humpries...Hump could serve as the back up at C and PF and get starting minutes that way. It'd be a good front court rotation, and the Nets will need a PG if they trade D-Will and dont seem to be in love with Hump, considering how they waited so long to sign him.

Understandably, I never said anything was guaranteed, I was saying the indications lead us to believe that Deron and Dwight will be playing and Brooklyn. Its really not that far fetched by any means.

Anything can happen, Im not oblivious to that, for all I know they could end up on the friggin Hornets but for now it isnt asinine to believe that Deron and Dwight as most likely playing together in NY.

At least Kobe plays D and he has emotion. Carmelo is a whiny little girl who will never grow up. People hate Lebron so much for the wrong reasons.

Cleveland is a hell hole for sports or anything for that matter. Nobody wants to play for their respective franchises. If for example, I get tied down to a small law firm in Montana and I have a nice contract, I would want out if I can get the same contract value wise with a prestigous law firm in NY, Chi, LA, Miami, Seattle, Dallas, SF, etc. Some players are just bonafide "cancers" and Carmelo is showing off his version of the sports cancer. Melo can only score, but he is a high volume shooter. He is not a superstar. He is now in the tier below. Superstars are suppossed to do anything when called upon, Melo doesn't do that at all.

Even Carmello is not stooped enough to ask for a trade he know he wouldn't be looked at as the same player. Get rid of D'Antoni and get Jeff Vangundy who's offense suit Mello's style and he demands defense out of his player.

First off he isn't being traded but with that being said can you blame him. I know he doesn't play defense but dam amare this year has been playing worse then bosh and boozer. Stat was the reason melo came and now he sucks and WE HAVE THE WORST COACH IN THE LEAGUE. At this point I would trade melo to the nets for dwill and morrow but thats it

Someone should close this thread it isnt even true?...



GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Carmelo Anthony says he doesn’t want to be traded, denying a report that he would welcome an exit from New York.

Anthony also denies there is a rift with coach Mike D’Antoni.

The Knicks have lost six in a row, with Anthony taking much of the blame. The back page of Wednesday’s New York Post ran a headline saying “Melo Wants Out!” The trade deadline is Thursday, a little more than a year after the Knicks acquired Anthony from Denver.

But Anthony calls the report “nonsense,” adding that he’s faced adversity throughout his career and “I’ve never ran from it and I’m not about to pick today to start running from it.”

Everyone back off carmelo him and his agent have both said they don't want to be traded ...melo knows if he gets traded again he will take a big hit and see his value decline even further ... Now what I will say is what has been the sentiments of former dantoni players .... He doesn't coach he just motivates he gives the point guard the ball and let him runs ... No point guard the system fails ... I say fire mike let avreal coach like woodson takeover instill some defense and see what happens ... Fill Jackson in the offseason

I am going to keep posting articles till it drills into people's heads:



Carmelo Anthony said Wednesday he doesn't want to be traded, denying a report that he would welcome an exit from New York.

"No, no, no, no. Let's nip this in the bud right now. No," Anthony said after the Knicks' morning shootaround.

"I don't know where that came from. I'm tired of hearing it. It came out this morning from I guess an anonymous source. I'm tired of anonymous sources. I don't want to be traded. I don't know where that foolishness came from, so let's put a cap on that and make this the last time I hear about that."

Anthony also denied there is a rift with Mike D'Antoni, saying he supported the coach "100 percent."

But Anthony called the report "nonsense," adding that he's faced adversity throughout his career and "I've never ran from it and I'm not about to pick today to start running from it."

"I've only been here a year," Anthony added. "I don't want to leave right now, so I'm here to stay."

Anthony also said he believes fellow players and team officials prefer he stays, saying he received text messages from teammates asking him about the story and telling him they don't want him to go.

According to the Post, Anthony became so discontent with the Knicks after Monday's loss in Chicago that he told a confidant that he preferred to be dealt. The report said he was unhappy in part because he believed D'Antoni and interim general manager Glen Grunwald do not trust him.

"I don't think that's true at all," forward Amare Stoudemire said. "Melo loves the city of New York, he loves playing for the Knicks. So I don't think that's true at all."

Lakers should low-ball NY for him. If he's going to be a ******** and not like their system, LA should try to hold NY hostage and snatch him up. If they don't play along, oh well no big deal. I can think of a bunch of players I'd rather have than him. Worth a try if they can buy low though.

To play devil's advocate, according to NBA rules Melo can't publicly demand a trade, so if he's asked by a reporter if he want's to be traded what's his response suppose to be, obviously it will be "no." With that said, I agree with the posters above that this is probably b.s. to begin with.

The coach isn't even adjusting his system to play to his strength. Lets be honest, Mike D'Antoni never wanted Carmelo here. Carmelo may come off as an *** in this alleged trade request, but when you have a coach that continually to make backhanded comment towards him into the media, never have dialogue with him as a star/coach should have, tuned out of the offense.....it's either you want me here or not. I don't agree with his alleged trade request, but Knicks have to realize D'Antoni was the wrong coach from the beginning. Everyone knows my distaste for his system. The offense should be 60% Amare and Melo, not 60% Lin and others.
