Carmelo Anthony

  1. Donnie Walsh's Catch-22

    Sep 23, 2010, 4:36 PM EDT

    Knicks decision maker Donnie Walsh would love to get in on the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes, but he doesn’t have all the chips needed to get a seat at the table. He doesn’t have a first round draft pick (well, not until 2014 anyway, and nobody wants to wait that long). A pick like the one…

  2. Joakim Noah doesn't want to be traded

    Sep 23, 2010, 9:26 AM EDT

    Be part of a powerhouse team that could be very good in Chicago or be part of a rebuilding process in Denver where you will forever be “the guy we traded the best player in franchise history for.” Shockingly, Joakim Noah is partial to the first option. Still he went to the old but true…

  3. Nuggets asking the world for Carmelo, Nets pushing to make it happen

    Sep 23, 2010, 1:05 AM EDT

    The Chicago Bulls talked with Denver, but the Nuggets demanded that Joakim Noah be part of the deal. So it fell apart. The New Jersey Nets talked to Denver, but the Nuggets demanded that Brook Lopez be part of the deal. So it fell apart. Sensing a pattern here? Denver is listening to offers for…

  4. Carmelo Anthony on the rumors: "i just want to play ball"

    Sep 22, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Whatever is swirling through the media, through back channels and into NBA front offices, Carmelo Anthony is going to come out at Nuggets camp and say all the right things. He’s got that down. He’ll do it to microphones next week, but he went to twitter and made these comments Wednesday night: Everyone has there…

  5. Chicago trading Joakim Noah for Carmelo Anthony? Bad idea.

    Sep 22, 2010, 12:01 PM EDT

    Who knows who put this rumor out there — Denver staffers trying to up the ante, Carmelo Anthony people trying to push the deal forward — but it is the debate around the league: Should Chicago throw Joakim Noah into the deal to bring Carmelo Anthony to Chicago? No. No. A thousand times no. Let’s…

  6. Carmelo Anthony renews push for trade to New York or Chicago; Denver in no rush

    Sep 22, 2010, 8:22 AM EDT

    If you’re wondering why so many — and at times conflicting — rumors are coming out about the Carmelo Anthony trade situation in the last few days, here’s your answer. Anthony and his CAA team (led by agent Leon Rose) have stepped up to pressure a move before training camp starts, according to ESPN. And…

  7. Carmelo Anthony rumors update (please bring plenty of salt)

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:32 PM EDT

    There are almost more rumors about Carmelo Anthony out there than there are people laughing at David Hasselhoff after last night. Almost. We’re going to talk about some key ones, but first we start with the trade rumor primer, just as a reminder: Every leaked rumor has a motive behind it. Nobody at this stage…

  8. Winderman: Jared Jeffries salary dump reason Knicks are out of Anthony sweepstakes

    Sep 21, 2010, 11:31 AM EDT

    It is one thing to mortgage your future after the fact. The Heat did that with the Cavaliers and Raptors in the sign-and-trades utilized to increase the payouts to LeBron James and Chris Bosh. For most of the next decade, draft night will remain rumor in South Florida. It is, however, another thing to mortgage…

  9. One team Carmelo Anthony won't be traded to: The Knicks

    Sep 21, 2010, 11:10 AM EDT

    The fast moving efforts to trade Carmelo Anthony — which now looks like it could happen even before training camps open — means the Knicks need to move on to Plan C. Or maybe it’s Plan Y at this point. They have had a lot of dashed plans. Once the Knicks lost out on the…

  10. Report: Nets now frontrunner to land Carmelo Anthony

    Sep 20, 2010, 6:10 PM EDT

    After a day of wild speculation — from the Clippers to the Sixers — it appears the frontrunner to trade for Carmelo Anthony is the most logical option. The New Jersey Nets are in the drivers seat, according to Chad Ford at ESPN. Several league sources on Monday told ESPN.com that they believe the Nets…

  11. Nuggets soften the hard line, are suddenly more open to the idea of dealing Carmelo Anthony

    Sep 20, 2010, 3:26 AM EDT

    Oh, what an intricate web the Carmelo Anthony trade rumors have woven. Melo has been linked to a dozen NBA teams, several book clubs, and at least one amateur magicians’ alliance since his desire to be traded became public, but the Nuggets’ willingness to play along with Anthony’s whimsy has been anything but concrete. Obviously…

  12. Sixers deny any serious Carmelo Anthony talks

    Sep 17, 2010, 9:09 AM EDT

    Yesterday we told you about rumors of a complex, still-in-discussions trade involving the Nets, Sixers and Nuggets in an effort to grant Carmelo Anthony a one-way ticket out of Denver. Except the Sixers say they are not playing that game. The original report came from the Ken Berger at CBSSports, but the Philadelphia Inquirer asked…

  13. Anthony still wants out in Denver, but deals to move him are complex

    Sep 16, 2010, 9:31 AM EDT

    It’s really a two-step process for the Nuggets to move on and trade Carmelo Anthony. And while most of us are having fun playing around with step two, the Nuggets still seem to be on step one. Step one: Accept that he is going to leave and that you have to trade him. Step two:…

  14. Kevin Martin says he's back, if so the Rockets may be as well

    Sep 15, 2010, 8:26 AM EDT

    As preseason predictions start to creep out, the Houston Rockets are becoming a popular dark horse pick in the West. The Lakers are the Lakers, but if anyone has a shot at knocking them off, it may well be Houston if Yao Ming can stay healthy. In part that prediction is based on Kevin Martin…

  15. David Kahn's letter to Wolves fans: rebuilding of the Timberwolves "nearly complete"

    Sep 14, 2010, 4:10 PM EDT

    At least the Timberwolves are being open with their fan base. That’s a positive. First there was the odd full-page letter to the fan base in the Star Tribune yesterday. Then there was the personal letter from the architect of the current Timberwolves, GM David Kahn, to Wolves fans. Here are some highlights, but check…

  16. Derrick Rose isn't holding his breath for Carmelo Anthony

    Sep 11, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    The Bulls remade their team this summer, but every time a big name comes up that isn’t a point guard, their name pops into the trade rumors. A contending team in a big market tends to attract a lot of attention, and the situation with Carmelo Anthony is no exception. But how does the Bulls’…

  17. Or maybe, rather than trade him, the Bulls are trying to lock up Joakim Noah

    Sep 10, 2010, 8:59 AM EDT

    This makes a lot more sense. The Chicago Bulls are not looking to trade Joakim Noah but are close to reaching an extension with him on his rookie deal, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. The two sides have been talking for weeks and are closing in on a deal that would keep Noah a…

  18. Report: Bulls considering adding Joakim Noah in Carmelo Anthony talks

    Sep 9, 2010, 5:25 PM EDT

    The Denver Nuggets are not talking about trading Carmelo Anthony right now. Calls are politely being turned away. They want their chance to keep him first. But a good rumor is like Freddy Krueger, it will not die. The Chicago Bulls are considering trying to pry Anthony out of Chicago by including Joakim Noah in…

  19. USA's, world's big guns stayed home this summer, but 2012 Olympics will be different

    Sep 8, 2010, 12:19 PM EDT

    There was plenty of talk about the top American players skipping the World Championships — Kobe Bryant had his knee scoped, LeBron James had to work on taking his talents places, and other excuses piled up for Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard and on down the list. But this was not just…

  20. Pro Basketball Crosstalk: Rights, wrongs, and trade demands

    Sep 7, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Let’s face it: there are some topics in basketball that are best tackled by having two writers talk past each other at gradually increasing volumes. We’re not making any progress unless we’re yelling our way through the real issues, and that’s precisely what John Krolik and I hope to accomplish in these Pro Basketball Crosstalk…

  21. Chauncey Billups to join Nuggets effort to keep Carmelo Anthony

    Sep 5, 2010, 3:19 PM EDT

    It may be futile. If you believe the off the record rumblings coming out of Carmelo Anthony’s camp he is all but gone from Denver. But the Denver Nuggets are not giving up hope. New GM Masai Ujiri wants to sit down and talk with him. And when he gets back from the World Championships,…

  22. Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Mark Cuban all sued by crazy Kentucky inmate

    Sep 2, 2010, 8:06 PM EDT

    Meet Jonathan Lee Riches. He’s a bit of a legend (in the urban sense) of the legal and penal systems. His claim to fame is not the simple wire fraud that has him behind bars. See, what Riches likes to do is file lawsuits from his prison cell. Handwritten screeds that are filled with courts…

  23. George Karl was "surprised" the Nuggets let go Mark Warkentien

    Sep 1, 2010, 10:40 AM EDT

    Ultimately, here is what it comes down to when Carmelo Anthony looks at that three-year, $65 million extension the Denver Nuggets put on the table: Do I trust the organization? Does he trust their management? Does he trust that they can keep a winner on the court? Does he trust the new regime of Josh…

  24. New Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri says he wants to keep Anthony in Denver

    Aug 31, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Denver’s new general manager Masai Ujiri held his introductory press conference today. Guess what most of the questions were about? No, not how Modern Family could win the Emmy for best comedy when it’s not really that funny. It was about ‘Melo and trades. Here are his answers. Nothing stunning or even really new there.…

  25. The Kings may want Carmelo Anthony. The question is will 'Melo want the Kings?

    Aug 31, 2010, 11:20 AM EDT

    The Sacramento King’s have not come up on previous lists, but they make sense as a team that would be interested in Carmelo Anthony. Which is why an unsourced rumor in the Sacramento Bee makes some sense. If and when the Denver Nuggets commit to a sign-and-trade for Carmelo Anthony, the Kings will thrust themselves…
