  1. Report: Nets, Blazers talking point guard swap: Andre Miller for Devin Harris

    Feb 17, 2011, 9:50 AM EDT

    Devin Harris, Zach Randolph, Tony Allen

    The New Jersey Nets have not been all that happy with Devin Harris of late. I’m not sure they should be — statistically he’s playing better than last season and this is what you get out of him most years. His points per game may be down (especially of late) but he is shooting less…

  2. Report: Nets back in mix, talking to Nuggets about ‘Melo

    Feb 16, 2011, 7:58 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    It just felt from the first minutes like this was going to happen. The New Jersey Nets and Denver Nuggets are talking Carmelo Anthony trade again, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo, the Bergen Record and ESPN’s Chris Broussard. One source described talks as “progressing” and said they have been ongoing between Denver and New…

  3. Isiah Thomas does not deny he is consulting with Knicks

    This post will help you understand why, during the press conference introducing Carmelo Anthony as a Knick next week, you will hear Donnie Walsh thank Isiah Thomas through gritted teeth. Thomas was on sports talk radio in Miami Tuesday night and, amazingly, there was little talk about FIU basketball and a lot about the Knicks.…

  4. Some All-Star Game odds

    Feb 16, 2011, 1:55 PM EDT

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    This is America, you can bet on anything. Well, not legally (unless you are in Vegas) but there are ways. And when you do remember that The King’s Speech is going to win the best picture Oscar. But this is a basketball blog, so we’ll talk about the All-Star Game Sunday in Los Angeles. You…

  5. The other Carmelo Anthony trade wild card: Mark Cuban

    Feb 16, 2011, 12:35 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    There’s a lot of reasons we like Mark Cuban. He’s smart. He’s not afraid to buck the system. He’s accessible. He’s reasonably forthcoming (certainly in comparison to most owners). And he’s unpredictable. That unpredictability is one reason people don’t think the Mavericks are out of the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes. The Mavericks need a wing scorer,…

  6. Carmelo Anthony trade talks slowly picking up steam

    Feb 16, 2011, 10:53 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    Haven’t we — and all the parties involved — been talking about this since last summer? If so, how can things be dragging out so slowly now? But it is. Nothing has been quick or painless about the Carmelo Anthony trade situation. But now something is going to go down in the next week. It…

  7. Blazers GM: Carmelo Anthony trade holding up other deals

    Feb 16, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Image (1) CAnthony_stares-thumb-250x140-17932.jpg for post 6271

    Teams are talking trades. Not really seriously, however. We told you the other day that meaningful trade chatter was down this season and tried to present a few reasons — fear of the unknown of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement and teams not taking on any new salary because of it for one. All the…

  8. Carmelo Anthony drama has owners thinking franchise tag

    Feb 15, 2011, 11:37 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    What do NBA owners want out of the collective bargaining agreement? More money. Remember, it is always about the money. Who generates that money? Don’t say “the players” because it’s much more narrow than that. While there are 12 to 15 guys on an NBA roster, only a couple of those players directly generate more…

  9. Carmelo Anthony trade updates: Don’t believe anybody

    Feb 15, 2011, 9:38 AM EDT

    carmelo anthony

    It’s at the point with the Carmelo Anthony trade drama to stop taking anything anybody says seriously. It’s all lies, spin and negotiation tactics. Any truth in comments from people involved in the trade is incidental to their motives. Look at Tuesday’s reports. The New York Daily News is saying the Knicks could make a…

  10. Expect Carmelo Anthony to play for the West at the All-Star Game

    Feb 14, 2011, 9:17 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    If Carmelo Anthony is traded to the Knicks or Nets (or any team in the East) before Sunday, he would play for the East in the All-Star Game. And then LaMarcus Aldridge would get his just reward. But don’t bet on it. You can expect Anthony to be with the Nuggets — and the Western…

  11. Nets, Nuggets still not talking about Carmelo Anthony again

    Feb 14, 2011, 5:09 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    When Mikhail Prokhorov pulled the Nets out of Carmelo Anthony chase, there were some around the NBA who said he was just acting and trying to come off as a bad ass at the negotiating table. He was trying to establish his presence and persona with a dramatic move. My thought: If you made $15…

  12. Where is all the trade chatter?

    Feb 14, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Utah Jazz, Game 6

    It’s 10 days until the NBA trade deadline, and usually right now the chatter among NBA teams about potential deals is ramping up to a huge wave fans everywhere just try to ride. This season, it’s a ripple in a pond. Mark Cuban said this is a pretty standard year. “Relative to other years in…

  13. Carmelo Anthony is really impressed with how Carmelo Anthony has handled things

    Feb 12, 2011, 5:08 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    You know, it’s not easy being Carmelo Anthony. You’re a featured player on the top offense in the league, the Denver Nuggets. You’re defended nightly by the best wing defender the opponent can throw at you. You’re trying to deal with a delicate situation regarding how best to continue your career in a larger market,…

  14. Mike D’Antoni to Knicks fans: Stop chanting “we want Me-lo”

    Feb 11, 2011, 11:26 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    We all get it Knicks fans, you want Carmelo Anthony. You’re convinced he is the next piece of the puzzle. And so long as that puzzle isn’t defense, we agree with you. People 3,000 miles away know you want ‘Melo. The brass in Denver knows you want ‘Melo. Donnie Walsh and James Dolan know you…

  15. Winderman: Lakers shouldn’t trade Bynum now because they’ll need to later

    Feb 9, 2011, 8:19 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    Let’s see: You don’t trade Andrew Bynum because it compromises the Lakers’ size advantage. You don’t trade Andrew Bynum because it compromises the Lakers’ already questionable defense. You don’t trade Andrew Bynum for Carmelo Anthony because Jim Buss loves the guy to pieces. Fair enough. All (except the latter) legitimate points. But here’s another one:…

  16. Warriors asking about Nene, just because

    Feb 9, 2011, 6:58 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    I suppose it never hurts to ask. Despite their lack of compatible assets, the Golden State Warriors are reportedly inquiring as to the availability of Nene, the highly efficient pivot who could make all of the Dubs’ dreams come true. From Marcus Thompson II of the San Jose Mercury News: According to multiple sources, the…

  17. If not traded, ‘Melo says he’d consider signing with Denver after all. Right.

    Feb 9, 2011, 4:25 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Since day one of the ‘Melodrama, whenever Carmelo Anthony has been asked if he would sign with Denver he has said it was one of the options he would consider. That’s not what his people — the fine folks from CAA, for example — were saying privately to the Nuggets and everyone else. They said…

  18. Sorry to spoil the party — Lakers have no plans to trade for ‘Melo

    Feb 9, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    Image (1) bynum-thumb-250x176-5609.jpg for post 96

    We went over the ways we didn’t think it made sense for the Lakers to trade for Carmelo Anthony — they take on much more salary and give up their defensive anchor when the team needs to focus on getting stops. Now, multiple reports from guys close to the team say no, the Lakers have…

  19. Is Carmelo Anthony to Lakers rumor just to prod the Knicks?

    Feb 8, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT

    carmelo anthony

    Of course they feel that way. Suddenly reports coming of New York writers are saying that the Carmelo Anthony to the Lakers for Andrew Bynum rumors that sprung forth today are really about the Knicks. Because it’s always about you, New York, isn’t it? Always. First we have Alan Hahn at Newsday who writes: A…

  20. Minnesota likely to trade Corey Brewer, ‘Melo deal or not

    Feb 8, 2011, 4:13 PM EDT

    coreybrewer

    Corey Brewer is the latest in a long and proud line of players to have his name dragged into the Carmelo Anthony trade talks. Really, it’s almost a right of passage in the NBA at this point everyone has done it. Except that if this ‘Melo deal fall through, too, Brewer is still likely to…

  21. Report: Lakers, Nuggets have preliminary Carmelo Anthony talks

    Feb 8, 2011, 12:28 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum Carmelo Anthony

    UPDATE 12:28 pm: Jim Buss — the son of owner Jerry Buss and the guy who is the real day-to-day head of the Lakers basketball-side operations — turned down a Carmelo Anthony for Andrew Bynum trade, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News (on twitter). He adds that Phil Jackson and Kobe…

  22. Dwight Howard: “I never said I wanted to leave”

    Feb 8, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    Already there is speculation about what Dwight Howard is going to do in the summer of 2012, with a report that he wants to find a way to the Knicks or Lakers. Dwight Howard himself is sick of it. He tweeted this: “I never said I wanted to leave stop reading the rumors. It’s really…

  23. Three-team talks about Carmelo Anthony trade continue, Nuggets still dragging feet

    Feb 8, 2011, 11:06 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    UPDATE 11:06 am: In an effort to push the deal forward, Knicks owner James Dolan called Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke directly to negotiate a deal, according to the New York Daily News. According to a source familiar with the negotiations, Dolan’s decision to become more involved in the Anthony trade talks is a sign that…

  24. Does Dwight Howard already have one eye on the door?

    Feb 7, 2011, 12:57 PM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    This is where we are now. When a player is a couple years away from free agency — as Dwight Howard is in 2012 — there will be stories about how if the team doesn’t win a title he is gone. The stories have started about Chris Paul as well, all in the wake of…

  25. Stop us if you’ve heard this one: New York closing in on Melo

    Feb 6, 2011, 12:52 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Recently we spread the word on a Yahoo! report saying Melo’s people had informed teams that the Knicks were the only team he would sign an extension with. From there, there has been more movement towards an actual trade with New York, signaling a possible shift in Denver’s so-far ice-cold approach to dealing with the…
