Carmelo Anthony

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

    Dec 21, 2010, 11:56 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 21, 2010, 4:18 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 21, 2010, 11:44 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 15, 2010, 2:53 PM EST

    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…

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

    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 —…

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

    Dec 15, 2010, 1:35 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 14, 2010, 11:59 PM EST

    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.…

  8. Carmelo Anthony denies he gave Denver an ultimatum (let’s have an argument)

    Dec 13, 2010, 11:26 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    This whole Carmelo Anthony trade thing is starting to sound like a Monty Python skit. No it isn’t. Yes it is. No it isn’t. Yes it is. Isn’t. Is. Two days ago came the report that Anthony would only sign an extension with the New York Knicks. Then today another report said the Nets and…

  9. Reports: New Jersey, maybe even Denver still in play for Carmelo Anthony

    Dec 13, 2010, 10:10 AM EST

    Anthony_dunk

    When Carmelo Anthony stepped on the court at Madison Square Garden Sunday, announced as part of the visiting team, cheers rained down on him like he was Willis Reed. The New York fans wanted him to know what they thought of talk of him coming to the Knicks. But despite reports yesterday that the Knicks…

  10. Bobcats chasing terrible idea in trading for Melo, which could be pretty good

    Dec 12, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Carmelo Anthony wants a big market, superstar teammates, legendary status, lots of endorsement deals, and to party like a rock star. So, naturally, this whole idea of Michael Jordan trading for the Nuggets star is clearly going to work out. ESPN and Hoopsworld are both reporting that Michael Jordan and the Bobcats have shown interest…

  11. Carmelo Anthony is “thinking” about the Nuggets’ extension offer

    Dec 11, 2010, 5:00 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Could it be for all the talk, all the rumors, and all the clamoring that Carmelo Anthony simply winds up where he is now for the long-term? Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that Carmelo Anthony has told the Nuggets he’ll “think about” signing the extension they’re offering which would keep him in Denver in the…

  12. Nuggets management figures out it has to trade Carmelo Anthony. Finally.

    Dec 9, 2010, 10:10 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you and I figured out months ago, what Carmelo Anthony’s people have been telling the Nuggets front office privately since this summer, has finally sunk in with Denver’s decision makers. Carmelo Anthony is leaving, and you can trade him now or watch him walk for nothing next July. So Denver is going to get…

  13. Carmelo Anthony out against Boston with sore knee

    Dec 8, 2010, 7:49 PM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    Boston is catching some breaks this season. When they faced Oklahoma City Kevin Durant was out, when they faced Washington John Wall was out… And when Denver came into the Garden tonight, Carmelo Anthony was out. He had an inflamed right knee, according to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post. It was bothering him last…

  14. Nuggets looking to lock up Karl for 3-year extension

    Dec 4, 2010, 5:00 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    If you want proof of how you need not commit to overreactions based on a few years of play and to try and weather the storms of violent change that regularly sweep through the NBA, look no further than George Karl. In 2007-2008, there was a very real movement to fire George Karl. The team…

  15. Chris Paul plays New York so crank up the speculation machine

    Dec 3, 2010, 11:57 AM EST

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    The New Orleans Hornets will take on the Knicks tonight, and you know what that means — time for some vintage New York speculation. Obviously, Chris Paul wants to be a Knick more than anything in the whole wide world. Why else would he have gone to Carmelo Anthony’s wedding in New York and made…

    Image (1) anthony_ref-thumb-250x168-10417.jpg for post 1634

    Carmelo Anthony was thrown out of the game in the third quarter of the team’s win Wednesday night over Miami. But now the league has rescinded the second technical, according to Chris Tomasson of FanHouse. In the third quarter, Anthony drove the lane and thought his shot should have counted because it was goaltending by…

  17. Report: Carmelo Anthony not interested in New Jersey

    Dec 2, 2010, 3:17 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Denver Nuggets

    CBS’s Ken Berger threw this little note in at the end of his weekly column: …executives are becoming more convinced that Anthony would not agree to an extension with the Nets — a stance that could kill New Jersey’s months-long bid for the superstar once and for all. The reason is he doesn’t want to…

  18. Carmelo Anthony leaves game early due to flu (Nuggets win anyway)

    Nov 29, 2010, 1:19 AM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    Like some kind of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds” ending, a little virus has done what no line of defense could. Carmelo Anthony’s 134-game regular season streak of scoring in double digits came to an end Sunday night because he had to leave the game early due to the flu. He played the first…

  19. Melo likes his space in the locker room

    Nov 28, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Denver Nuggets

    Those of you who had a student transfer or move during your high school years know the sweet joy of the locker next to yours being empty. All that space! Having all that room, and if the person on the other side wasn’t using it, you could even stash stuff in it if yours became…

  20. Are the Nuggets delaying a ‘Melo trade to improve draft pick?

    Nov 26, 2010, 9:00 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated put out a Carmelo Anthony trade theory via twitter on Friday: Interesting ‘Melo theory floated at me by a couple execs this week. Nets want Melo. DEN wants Nets package of Favors, Murphy, picks. But DEN thinking if they trade Melo now, that NJN pick becomes worse when Melo makes…

  21. Jarrett Jack says look at Miami before you think Chris Paul is New York bound

    Nov 23, 2010, 10:13 AM EST

    CPaul_Heat

    While the entire league is enjoying a bit of schadenfreude at the Miami Heat’s expense Tuesday morning, Jarrett Jack — the newest member of the Hornets — was warning that the slow start in South Beach could be viewed as a cautionary tale by players. After the Miami Heat formed Voltron this summer, there was…

  22. Billups wants to stay in Denver, knows that may not happen

    Nov 22, 2010, 10:11 AM EST

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

    Remember when Chauncey Billups was brought in to Denver, a change at the point as the shoot-first Allen Iverson went to Detroit? That move changed who the Nuggets were, it brought a seriousness and professionalism to their identity. That is when they became a threat in the West. Billups likes it in Denver, but he…

    Image (1) nba_lopez.jpg for post 580

  24. Batum on ‘Melo: “We know that he doesn’t want to play defense.”

    Nov 19, 2010, 3:25 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, Wesley Mathews

    What was Portland’s offensive strategy Thursday night against Denver? How did Wes Mathews and Nicolas Batum end up with 34 points between them?

  25. Game of the night: Denver, Portland prove sloppy can be entertaining

    Nov 19, 2010, 5:42 AM EST

    Forbes_dunk

    This was kind of a guilty pleasure of a game — it was fun to watch, it came right down to shots at the end, there were some stunning highlight plays. And it was sloppy and messy and filled with missed perimeter shots. Not how you want future generations to play the game, but it…
