Carmelo Anthony

  1. Funniest part of ‘Melo trade: Nuggets asked about Blake Griffin

    Jan 11, 2011, 11:16 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    Can’t blame a guy for trying, I guess. Of all the crazy rumors flying around the Carmelo Anthony trade scenarios this one (from Marc Stein of ESPN) made me laugh out loud. The Clippers’ Blake Griffin is one of Denver’s dream targets in an Anthony trade, but sources told ESPN.com that those overtures have been…

  2. Anthony feels bad Billups caught up in trade rumors

    Chauncey Billups missed the Nuggets practice yesterday, and the headache that caused that was real, his agent emphasized to Marc Spears of Yahoo. That doesn’t mean he wants to be traded. Billups, a Denver native, has said he wants to finish his career as a Nugget and maybe move into the front office. However, he…

  3. Melo trade update: Denver slows pace down, Harrington still stumbling block

    Jan 11, 2011, 7:50 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony intro

    Sunday evening into Monday there seemed to be more leaks around the Carmelo Anthony-to-the-Nets trade talks than there were on the Titanic. That, and pressure from the Nets (and others) to make it happen fast, gave the impression the entire trade was just about to go down. Turns out, not so much. In the past…

  4. Carmelo Anthony hints the Knicks may not want him, trade may take time

    Jan 10, 2011, 4:31 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Carmelo Anthony practiced with the Denver Nuggets Monday — a sign that nothing is imminent on the trade front — as did everyone else whose name has come up in recent trade talks. The exception was Chauncey Billups (officially out due to a headache, which I bet all the trade rumors have become for him).…

  5. What’s the holdup on ‘Melo deal? Al Harrington’s bad deal.

    Jan 10, 2011, 12:53 PM EDT

    Al Harrington

    UPDATE 12:53 pm: Here is the latest, from multiple reports, at this time on the still pending Carmelo Anthony trade: Everything seems to be in Denver’s court, but they continue to tweak offers and try to work out the best deal — they have even pushed the Nets to take on Renaldo Balkman in addition…

  6. Would Stoudemire be happy if Knicks don’t get ‘Melo?

    Jan 10, 2011, 11:32 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New York Knicks

    Carmelo Anthony has long said his preferred destination was the New York Knicks, but it looks like a deal sending him to the New Jersey Nets is close to fruition (‘Melo may love New York but apparently what he loves more is the $10 million or so he would likely give up going there as…

  7. If ‘Melo trade happens, Devin Harris could be moved again

    Jan 10, 2011, 9:11 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Jersey Nets

    One of the many parts on the move in the proposed and on-the-cusp Carmelo Anthony trade is point guard Devin Harris going from New Jersey to Denver. But that might not be his final stop. The Dallas Mavericks might make a move to go get Harris from Denver, according to Mark Stein at ESPN. And…

  8. Camelo Anthony says trade is not imminent

    Jan 10, 2011, 2:10 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Sacramento Kings

    While there is a lot of smoke around the fire that is Carmelo Anthony being traded to the Nets, the man himself threw some water on that after the Nuggets loss Sunday saying things were not moving as fast as it appears to everyone else. Anthony wouldn’t say much when pressed about the trade rumors…

  9. UPDATED: Carmelo Anthony trade talks move closer as Nets zero in

    Jan 9, 2011, 6:26 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Sacramento Kings

    The New Jersey Nets have managed to move their efforts to obtain Carmelo Anthony in a trade with the Denver Nuggets “further along” according to a report from ESPN New York. Here’s where we stand at posting time: The teams are the same as last we left, with the Pistons pulled into the deal and…

  10. Chauncey Billups says if traded he will become free agent next summer

    Jan 8, 2011, 10:34 PM EDT

    Image (1) canthony_billups-thumb-250x140-18636.jpg for post 3784

    Chauncey Billups may have thrown a wrench into Denver’s trade plans for Carmelo Anthony. The Nuggets want to deal with Nets — where they can get Derrick Favors and some first-round draft picks — but Anthony’s agent has pushed for getting Chauncey Billups and other players traded to New Jersey with him because Anthony doesn’t…

  11. Chauncey, Rip and ‘Melo with Nets? It’s what could have been in Detroit.

    Jan 8, 2011, 3:14 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 3: San Antonio Spurs v Detroit Pistons

    Let’s travel back in our minds to 2003, when at the movie theater we were all Finding Nemo and at the NBA draft the Detroit Pistons went with Darko Milicic over Carmelo Anthony. We wince now (we winced then, too), but Detroit went on to win the NBA title the next season thanks to stifling…

  12. Report: Nets try to draw Pistons into three-way deal for ‘Melo

    Jan 7, 2011, 10:10 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    Ever since the collapse of a four-team deal before the season, the New Jersey Nets and Denver Nuggets have been trying to lure teams into a three- or four-way-trade that would end with Carmelo Anthony in New Jersey and a lot of picks and young players headed to Denver. The latest — the Detroit Pistons,…

  13. Nuggets, Nets, Cavs talked three-way ‘Melo deal

    Jan 7, 2011, 1:51 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    If you take away one thing from the latest reports and rumors on a Carmelo Anthony trade, take away this — the saga will likely to drag out until near the trade deadline Feb. 24. That said, talks are still going on, as Chris Broussard laid out at ESPN. He says that just before Christmas…

  14. Just to reiterate, ‘Melo is not returning to Denver

    Jan 4, 2011, 12:29 PM EDT

    Francisco Garcia, Carmelo Anthony

    Last week, during the hiatus in the Carmelo Anthony trade talks around the tragic death of his sister, Denver Nuggets officials reportedly said that before they traded Anthony they wanted to see him, Chauncey Billups, Nene, Kenyon Martin and the whole healthy Nuggets team together first. As if that might change Anthony’s mind. As if…

  15. Carmelo Anthony tells Michael Jordan, Bobcats “no thanks”

    Jan 3, 2011, 11:16 AM EDT

    Image (1) anthony_high5-thumb-250x140-18487.jpg for post 6258

    The Bobcats are a struggling franchise. On the court and at the gate. Something or someone needs to change that. Someone like Carmelo Anthony. Bobcats owner Michael Jordan reached out to Melo and his people before contacting the Nuggets and throwing his hat in the ring of the Anthony sweepstakes, only to be told no…

  16. How Carmelo Anthony trade talks are like CBA negotiations

    Dec 31, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    Right now there is more posturing around the NBA than after a Chris Bosh dunk. It is coming on two fronts — the Carmelo Anthony trade talks and the negotiations for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement between the players and owners. Two very different things that have one thing in common — with no imminent…

  17. Kobe Bryant still leads everyone in All-Star voting

    Dec 30, 2010, 1:47 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    With his worldwide popularity — he sells more jerseys in China than Yao Ming — it shouldn’t be a shock that Kobe Bryant is on top of the NBA’s All-Star balloting. The second round of released vote totals has Bryant with 1,153,694, well ahead of second place overall and Eastern Conference leader Dwight Howard (988,572).…

  18. Rockets not looking for picks, they want to trade for an All-Star

    Dec 30, 2010, 1:19 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Houston Rockets

    There are two sides to building a championship roster: Getting a couple All-Star players to lead it; then finding quality role players to go around them. When Daryl Morey took over as general manager of the Rockets the stars were in place — Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady. Morey built maybe the best group of…

  19. Report: Nets re-thinking pursuit of Carmelo Anthony

    Dec 30, 2010, 12:01 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    The tragic death of Carmelo Anthony’s sister — and the wise decision by the Nuggets to suspend trade talks while he was away from the team —created a de facto cooling of period on the spiraling trade talks for Melo. It gave teams time to reassess. And with that — and the mixed signals that…

  20. Carmelo Anthony to return to Nuggets Thursday

    Dec 28, 2010, 11:01 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Carmelo Anthony missed a fourth game Tuesday night following the death of his sister, but the Nuggets announced that he will return to the team Thursday. Mark Spears of Yahoo was first with the news on twitter. The Nuggets had lost three in a row without Anthony coming into Tuesday (they had an 18 point…

    Image (1) Favors_rookie-thumb-250x250-18463.jpg for post 4183

    At some point this season, Derrick Favors is going to be starting for the New Jersey Nets. That point is not now, and Sunday coach Avery Johnson told the Star-Ledger the reason is Favors. “What we told him today — he’s got to give us a reason to start him,’’ Johnson said on a conference…

  22. Report: Nets looking to land Andre Miller along with ‘Melo

    Dec 25, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    millertrade

    The Denver Nuggets have suspended trade talks for Carmelo Anthony through the weekend, as Anthony is currently at home with his family after the untimely death of his sister. It was the classy and right thing for the Nuggets to do. But it doesn’t stop the rumor mill from cranking. The Nets are hoping to…

  23. Nuggets lay down Christmas in Hollis… poorly

    Dec 23, 2010, 8:19 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Carmelo Anthony may want to go to New York, but if New York sees this it may not want Carmelo Anthony. Maybe THE classic hip-hop Christmas song (what else is in the competition?) gets the Denver Nuggets treatment. Which seems appropriate because they have the players with more ink than any rapper on the planet.…

  24. Nuggets make classy move, pause Carmelo Anthony trade talks while he’s out

    Dec 23, 2010, 8:38 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Carmelo Anthony is away from the Nuggets and back in Baltimore, grieving from the death of his sister to a pre-existing medical condition. He is expected to join up with the team again after Christmas. In a classy move — and a bit of a respite for the rest of us — the Nuggets management…
