Carmelo Anthony

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

    Feb 7, 2011, 12:57 PM EST

    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…

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

    Feb 6, 2011, 12:52 AM EST

    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…

  3. Walsh gets a win, Knicks hire former Nugget GM Warkentien

    Feb 5, 2011, 12:21 PM EST

    Mark Walkenstein

    In a week where he needed one, Knicks president of basketball operations Donnie Walsh got a win. The Knicks have hired former Nuggets GM Mark Warkentien as their director of pro personnel, the team announced Saturday. Since he was expected to be hired as a consultant so this is a much more entrenched position within…

  4. Report: Knicks sitting pretty in Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes

    Feb 5, 2011, 7:57 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    It’s good to be the Knicks right now. Sure on the court too, where they are the best they’ve been in a decade. But we were talking in the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes, where the Knicks appear to have all the winning numbers. A new report by Marc Spears of Yahoo confirms that. Several sources told…

  5. Start your planning early, the top 25 free agents of 2011

    Today, we’re not thinking about lockouts and franchise tags. Today, just for today, we’re going to pretend that the owners and players are not so stupid as have a protracted lockout during a recession killing the momentum the league is building this season. A man can dream, can’t he? Along those lines, right about now…

  6. Cuban reiterates (sort of) Mavs would be willing to trade for ‘Melo without extension

    Feb 3, 2011, 12:48 PM EST

    Image (1) mcuban_cheers-thumb-250x375-14764.jpg for post 2807

    You kind of have to read between the lines of the Mavericks owner Mark Cuban told the Sporting News. Well, not very hard. It’s actually obvious what he is really saying, he just doesn’t want to write David Stern another large check. Cuban can’t say Carmelo Anthony by name — that would be tampering —…

  7. Carmelo Anthony talks trade but says nothing. Again.

    Feb 1, 2011, 10:41 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Carmelo Anthony’s walk from the locker room to the court Monday in New Jersey was lined with photos of construction and renderings of the finished new Barclays Center being built for the Nets in Brooklyn. Open for your convenience in 2012. For the Nets first 22 home games that artwork was not there, John Schuhmann…

  8. George Karl thinks ‘Melo could be a Nugget all season

    Jan 31, 2011, 10:07 PM EST

    Image (1) anthony_Karl-thumb-250x181-21662.jpg for post 6222

    Maybe this is just wishful thinking — if you’re a coach, you don’t want to lose your best scorer, you don’t want to embark on a rebuilding project. So you hope and convince yourself…. George Karl thinks Carmelo Anthony could be a Nugget through the end of the season, as he told the Associated Press.…

  9. Golden State is looking to trade for an elite wing. Good luck with that.

    Jan 31, 2011, 12:24 PM EST

    Image (1) warriors_logo_classic.jpg for post 2295

    Warriors’ fans: The most important thing is that they are looking. Golden State’s ownership is talking trades and looking at brining in a real ace — one true top-flight guy that can anchor the franchise. Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry are both very good, David Lee is nice in the middle, but this team is…

  10. Knicks to hire former Nuggets GM — and not just for the ‘Melo connections

    Jan 31, 2011, 8:33 AM EST

    Mark Walkenstein

    It seems to be a move about Carmelo Anthony in the short term, but this could be about the long-term future of the Knicks front office. Knicks GM Donnie Walsh is close to hiring former Nuggets GM Mark Warkentien as a consultant, Adrian Wojnarowski reports at Yahoo. You know, the job that was going to…

  11. Carmelo trade could give the West another All-Star spot

    Jan 28, 2011, 8:15 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Utah Jazz, Game 6

    Carmelo Anthony trade rumors may have temporarily ceded their control of basketball fans the world over, but the possibility of an Anthony trade still looms. It’s not imminent. The relative seriousness of trade talks isn’t worthy of an hourly update. But the foundation of what would cause Anthony to be moved in the first place…

  12. ‘Melo isn’t original — Kareem forced his way to Lakers the same way

    Jan 28, 2011, 1:00 PM EST

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with Bucks

    It’s a new era. NBA players are taking control of their careers in a way they never have before. Did you see Miami? Now we have Carmelo Anthony trying to manuever his way out of Denver to New York like no player has ever done before. Wrong. Players have done it before. More than once.…

  13. NBA All-Star Game starters named. Fans got 9 out of 10 right.

    Jan 27, 2011, 7:38 PM EST

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    NBA fans, you’ll get who you ask for. Well, nine out of 10 anyway. There were no surprises as the NBA All-Star Game starters were announced live on TNT Thursday night. The Eastern Conference starters are: Dwight Howard (Orlando Magic, center): He’s the best center in the game, averaging 22 points and 13.4 points per…

  14. Chauncey Billups sticks up for “Pistons royalty” Rip Hamilton

    Jan 27, 2011, 8:57 AM EST

    NBA Finals Game 3: San Antonio Spurs v Detroit Pistons

    Wednesday night, after he dispatched the Pistons players with four three pointers in the final three minutes, Chauncey Billups took aim at Detroit’s coaches and management. Wednesday made the eighth straight game Rip Hamilton has missed. Officially last night was because of the stomach flu, but if he had shown up to the arena early…

  15. Rodney Stuckey leaves game with shoulder injury, X-rays negative

    Jan 26, 2011, 10:00 PM EST

    Rodney Stuckey injured

    In the first quarter Wednesday Rodney Stuckey tried to fight around a Carmelo Anthony pick and injured his shoulder to the point he had to leave the game. Stuckey will not return to the Nuggets game, however the X-rays were negative. Which is good news. But watching him as he left the game whatever he…

  16. Carmelo Anthony has no idea what is going to happen

    Jan 26, 2011, 9:53 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Through the entire Melodrama — from before training camp up through last week — there was a confidence around Carmelo Anthony. Like he felt in some control of the situation, like he knew what was going to happen. No more. Mikhail Prokhorov changed the game. The Nets walked away. Everybody’s fallback option is gone. The…

  17. Ron Artest to drop new mix tape on All Star Weekend

    Jan 25, 2011, 12:02 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    So many things to look forward to on All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles Feb. 17-20. What team will Carmelo Anthony be playing for? Will Kobe be the guy who goes all out to win MVP in front of the home fans? How long will the lines be at Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles? Which will be…

  18. Report: Nuggets may have interest in Anthony Randolph from Knicks. Really?

    Jan 25, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Milwaukee Bucks

    Every report that comes out of New York about a possible deal the Denver Nuggets like enough to send Carmelo Anthony to Madison Square Garden is just harder to believe than the last one. I have no doubt that “a person with knowledge of the Nuggets’ thinking” told the respectable Alan Hahn of Newsday this…

  19. Could Deron Williams be the next Carmelo Anthony situation?

    Jan 24, 2011, 10:01 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    Next season, Deron Williams will make a cool $16.4 million. The year after that he will make a cool $17.8 million to lead the Utah Jazz — if he picks up his player option. Utah has been a frustrating place for Williams this season. They started out the season hot, as the cardiac kids winning…

  20. Baseline to baseline recap: Denver looks good against Indy. For whatever that’s worth.

    Jan 24, 2011, 12:50 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    In the real game of the night, Ben Roethlisberger was making the kind of heady plays on the field he can never seem to make off it, plus Rex Ryan’s level of disgust on the sidelines was surprisingly entertaining. But this is an NBA blog. And so our actual Game of the Night had to…

  21. Denver’s other big problem: Nene

    Jan 23, 2011, 10:31 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Beyond the ongoing, never-ending, painfully unresolved saga of Carmelo Anthony lies the dread and doom of another situation. If you check Denver’s books, you’ll notice that Nene has an ETO (Early Termination Option) for 2011, meaning he can jump ship and enter free agency should he elect to do so. Nene loves Denver and wants…

  22. Report: Knicks still lobbing Carmelo offers, Nuggets still rejecting

    Jan 22, 2011, 5:30 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    With the Nets out of the way, New York has resumed its calm, cool, and collected pursuit of Carmelo Anthony, but are hitting the same roadblock they have since the beginning: Denver doesn’t want hardly anything the Knicks have to offer. From The New York Post: A deal with the Nuggets appears to be, according…

  23. Warriors owner willing to make big moves

    Jan 21, 2011, 3:38 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Golden State Warriors

    Things are better in the Bay Area this year. And not just because San Francisco has a new restaurant called Sushirrito (sushi served in burrito form — don’t laugh, it’s good). Things are also better with the Golden State Warriors. Well, not the Warriors winning games part, that’s still going pretty poorly overall. But the…

  24. Carmelo Anthony misses shootaround, expected to play Friday against Lakers

    Jan 21, 2011, 2:30 PM EST

    Cavaliers Nuggets Basketball

    Carmelo Anthony did not take part in the Nuggets morning shootaround before taking on the Lakers Friday in Denver, with coach George Karl citing personal reasons. When pressed if Anthony would miss the game against the Lakers — players often miss practices or games right before they are traded — Karl told the Associated Press…

  25. Does nyet mean nyet? Nets not necessarily out of ‘Melo sweepstakes.

    Jan 21, 2011, 2:09 PM EST

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    The person with the strongest negotiating position is the person willing to walk away from the table. Nobody thought that was the New Jersey Nets — they needed a big star. They needed someone who could open their new Brooklyn home in 2012, who could attract other big time free agents to the team. They…
