Carmelo Anthony

  1. Knicks will sign Mike Bibby for the minimum salary, but keep their point guard options open

    Dec 10, 2011, 7:16 PM EDT

    Mike Bibby

    The New York Knicks have gone to great lengths to find a talented center counterpart for Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. They used the amnesty clause to waive veteran point guard Chauncey Billups, and blew $14 million in the process. They chipped in another $3 million just to ensure the passing of the three-team deal…

  2. Tyson Chandler signing official, Chauncey Billups gets the amnesty boot

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    Thanks for coming, Chauncey. After being traded for Denver in a deal he didn’t want (Billups is from Denver and was happy there), as a sidekick to Carmelo Anthony, and then having his option exercised to pay him $16 million, the New York Knicks exercised their amnesty clause on Chauncey Billups Saturday. The move means…

  3. Knicks moving forward to get Chandler, amnesty Billups

    It was the big story yesterday — until Chris Paul was traded then untraded — and it will shake up the Eastern Conference. And it is happening — the New York Knicks will sign Tyson Chandler today tweets Howard Beck at the New York Times. The Knicks will use the amnesty clause on Chauncey Billups…

  4. Stern’s trade veto about owners wanting their power back

    Dec 9, 2011, 9:34 AM EDT

    David Stern, Adam Silver

    Why David Stern pulled the plug Thursday on a reasonable (not ideal, but reasonable) three-team trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Lakers is really simple: The NBA owners want their power over star players back. What LeBron James did scared most owners because he had the power — teams had to come…

  5. Report: Knicks about to land Tyson Chandler

    Dec 8, 2011, 3:55 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler of the Dallas Mavericks c

    If the Knicks are going to compete with the Heat and Bulls as the elite in the East during the next few years, they were going to have to find a way to play much better defense. They may be very close to solving that problem — but it comes with a price. Potentially a…

  6. Warriors offer Tyson Chandler $60 million; Knicks may get him anyway

    Dec 8, 2011, 1:15 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    Golden State really wants Tyson Chandler, they are not messing around. But the New York Knicks are about counter with a huge offer of their own — one likely to win the day according to multiple reports. The Warriors have made a four-year, $60 million offer to Chandler, reports Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com. The New…

  7. Report: Grant Hill leaning toward Knicks, not Suns

    Dec 7, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    The conventional wisdom is that, like so many people in their “golden years,” Grant Hill was going to spend the rest of his (playing) days in the warm sun and great training facilities of Phoenix. But maybe he is going to trade that in for a cold but exciting New York Winter. That’s what Marc…

  8. Update: Chris Paul trade moving fast, Dwight Howard not

    Dec 7, 2011, 9:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    This much has become clear: It is very likely Chris Paul will be traded before the start of the NBA season and talks are fast tracked on that move. However, talks surrounding a Dwight Howard trade have slowed to a trickle as Howard has not told the Magic what he wants so that team remains…

  9. Report: Dwight Howard has not told Magic his intentions

    Dec 6, 2011, 1:39 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Chris Paul has been up front — he sat down with Hornets officials on Monday and was pretty clear he was not signing an extension and returning to New Orleans. He is not stringing the Hornets along (which is little consolation for the team’s fans). Dwight Howard on the other hand… He has seemed conflicted…

  10. Carmelo, Knicks not visiting Denver this season

    Dec 5, 2011, 8:20 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    If we didn’t know better, we would think Carmelo Anthony slipped the NBA schedule maker a nice tip. Because ‘Melo and his New York Knicks will not be traveling to Denver this season to have boos rain down on them, reports Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post. Each team will play only 18 games against…

  11. Hornets preparing for the worst or subtly appealing to Chris Paul’s pride?

    Dec 5, 2011, 2:39 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    As has been made abundantly clear over the last few weeks, the New Orleans Hornets are in a tough spot. Most reports have Chris Paul with one foot out the door — a colossally bad omen for the franchise in virtually every sense. Paul is the Hornets’ livelihood. He is the team’s leader, its star player, and…

  12. Why are we talking trades for Paul, Howard? Money.

    Dec 2, 2011, 8:29 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Since about three minutes after David Stern and Billy Hunter sat bleary-eyed in a New York conference room to say they reached a deal, we have been talking trades. Specifically Chris Paul and Dwight Howard trades. The two superstar, franchise cornerstone guys who can opt out as free agents next summer and may push their…

  13. Report: Chris Paul knows he’s not getting traded to Knicks

    Dec 2, 2011, 3:51 PM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Chris Paul may have asked to be traded to the New York Knicks. Or he may not have. But either way he knows he’s not getting there by a trade. That is the spin coming out of the report this week that Paul demanded a trade to play with Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire in…

  14. Chris Paul could get his max deal in New York… just don’t bet on it

    Dec 2, 2011, 10:43 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul wants to go to the Knicks. Chris Paul also would like a massive payday of a bird-rights extension — five years and $100 million. But he can’t get those two things the way Carmelo Anthony did, the new collective bargaining agreement takes that away. The Hornets could (in theory) do a sign-and-trade with…

  15. Report: Chris Paul’s agent tells Hornets he will not sign, wants to be Knick

    Dec 1, 2011, 2:41 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    This might be David Stern’s worst nightmare. The only thing that would make it worse is if union lawyer Jeffrey Kessler were Chris Paul‘s agent. Paul has informed the Hornets front office that he will not sign an extension with the team and that he wants to be traded to the Knicks, reports Adrian Wojnarowski…

  16. Reports: Chris Paul won’t sign in Boston; Pacers talk to Celtics

    Nov 30, 2011, 11:23 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Chris Paul

    There is a lot of smoke around the Chris Paul to the Celtics rumors, enough to make you think there is some fire. But that is a very, very different thing than saying this trade is going to happen. More likely it is not. Why? For one, take this tweet from Chris Broussard of ESPN.…

  17. Report: Nets to make big trade offer for Dwight Howard

    Nov 30, 2011, 10:02 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    New Jersey — soon to be Brooklyn — made a big move last year to get its first star in Deron Williams. Now owner Mikhail Prokhorov needs to get a second star and convince them both to stay. How about Dwight Howard? The Nets are going to make a big move to try and get…

  18. With rumors abound, Lakers near a franchise crossroads

    Nov 29, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    Though the formalization of the new CBA proceeds at a slow churn, the NBA rumor mill is already in mid-season form. Chris Paul and Dwight Howard — both in the final year of their respective contracts — are suddenly ready to be shipped every which way, and media outlets of every form are examining the…

  19. Report: Chris Paul eyeing Knicks or… Clippers?

    Nov 29, 2011, 8:01 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony

    When the New Orleans Hornets reach out to Chris Paul not long after Dec. 9, they will offer him a max deal that will have one more guaranteed year and be worth $27 million more than what any other team can offer. That’s a lot of money. And there are not many people — even…

  20. LeBron, Wade, ‘Melo homecoming tour now just one game

    Nov 28, 2011, 9:54 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Duane Wade, Carmelo Antho

    The summer (and fall) of NBA charity games has come to an end… but not without at least one more. The “homecoming tour” to be anchored by LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony has been cancelled, to be replaced by one game in New York this Tuesday. Games in Akron, New Orleans…

  21. Heat, Knicks may be big winners in last minute deal changes

    Nov 26, 2011, 6:57 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Heat Mavericks Basketball

    Part of the motivation for the hardline owners during the NBA lockout was to never let what happened with LeBron James going to Miami to ever happen again. To never let what Carmelo Anthony did to the Nuggets ever happen again (they lost the ‘Melo part of the fight). Small market owners didn’t like players…

  22. What was finally decided with those “thorny” system issues?

    Nov 26, 2011, 4:10 PM EDT

    NBPA Meet To Discuss Current CBA Offer

    It was the most confounding part of this constantly confounding NBA lockout. The owners and players got to a point a few weeks ago where they essentially agreed on the money side of the equation — how to split up the revenue coming into the league — but could not get close on the “system”…

  23. Owners have a lot to prove in the life of this CBA

    Nov 26, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Mark Cuban, David Stern

    It’s over, and now we have to look back and survey the wreckage. 480 games lost. Millions of dollars in league revenue, local economy revenue, player salaries. Fans hurt by the way the league and players left them behind in pursuit of more money. Momentum lost after the most exciting season in over a decade.…

    NBA And Players Representatives Meet To Discuss Possible Settlement

    It’s less than eight hours after a bleary-eyed group of executives and attorneys shuffled into a small conference room at a New York office building to deliver the news: a tentative deal is in place. The lockout is over. Now begins the process of unraveling what happened and how, and determining what the new CBA…

  25. LeBron, Wade, ‘Melo to host four city “homecoming tour”

    Nov 21, 2011, 9:39 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Duane Wade, Carmelo Antho

    And the charity games just keep on coming… and in this case getting bigger. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony will headline a four-city homecoming tour with money raised from the games going to charity, reports the Associated Press. Other players will slide in and out of the tour, but those four…
