Carmelo Anthony

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

    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…

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

    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…

  5. 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,…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

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

    Jan 3, 2011, 11:16 AM EDT

    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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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).…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. Avery Johnson to Derrick Favors: Give us a reason to start you

    Dec 27, 2010, 11:21 AM EDT

    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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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.…

  17. 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…

  18. Melo out against Spurs Wednesday due to death in family

    Dec 22, 2010, 12:52 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Carmelo Anthony will not suit up for the Denver Nuggets Wednesday night against the San Antonio Spurs so that he can attend to issues regarding a death in the family, the team announced. “Our entire organization supports Carmelo during this difficult time for him and his family,” Nuggets executive vice president of basketball operations Masai…

  19. Report: Mavericks throw hat in Melo sweepstakes — but only as a rental

    Dec 21, 2010, 11:56 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Now we have some confirmation on an early post on this site that came with a little bit of speculation — it is indeed the Dallas Mavericks that is the contending team that has thrown it’s hat into the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes. However they only want him as a “rental,” according to Ken Berger of…

  20. Report: Contending teams consider “renting” Carmelo Anthony for season

    Dec 21, 2010, 4:18 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Much of the focus on Carmelo Anthony’s trade prospects has centered on whether Anthony would sign a contract extension to play wherever he was sent. But what if a contending team was willing to trade for him without caring about an extension? That is apparently happening (well, that or it’s a negotiating tactic). Sources told…

  21. The Carmelo Anthony trade rumor wheel goes around and around and….

    Dec 21, 2010, 11:44 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Just how confusing and circular is the Carmelo Anthony trade situation? Take the two very different stories that broke Tuesday. On one hand you have Yahoo’s trade rumor machine Adrian Wojnarowski saying that the Nets and Nuggets are working on a complex multi-team deal which would bring Anthony and some other quality talent to the…

  22. Dallas “touches base” with Denver about Melo, but reality says no way

    Dec 15, 2010, 2:53 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    We’re not telling you about this because it is likely to happen — you’re more likely to read a headline that says “President Obama, Rush Limbaugh now BFFs” — but rather to show just how widespread the interest in Carmelo Anthony is around the league. The Dallas Mavericks have “continued to touch base” with the…

  23. J.R. Smith to Chicago? Maybe. (And what that means about Melo.)

    Dec 15, 2010, 12:43 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_smith.jpg for post 394

    The theory goes like this: If the Denver Nuggets are going to trade Carmelo Anthony, then they are going to strip the roster down and rebuild. That means Chauncey Billups is gets moved, it means J.R. Smith is out and maybe more. In the NBA you sell the fan base one of two things —…

  24. Anthony-to-Nets rumor not true. Yet, anyway.

    Dec 15, 2010, 1:35 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    UPDATE 1:33 am: After his nightly news broadcast, KGMH sports anchor Lionel Bienvenu clarified his news station’s tweet saying “No, Melo was not traded. Deal is in works. Trade could happen.” So, what the rest of us have been hearing for weeks. This does not explain why the original tweet was sent out saying the…

  25. What the three-team trade really says: The Nets want Melo

    Dec 14, 2010, 11:59 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Step back and look at the Nets/Lakers/Rockets trade that is all but official — Terrence Williams is tweeting about his new home already — and one thing jumps out: The Nets are really serious about getting Carmelo Anthony. The Lakers get cap relief and another big man in case their good ones get hurt again.…
