Carmelo Anthony

  1. 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…

  2. 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:…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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’…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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,…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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.…

  14. 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…

  15. Winderman: Jamal Crawford. 'Melo smart to try and get their money now

    Aug 30, 2010, 9:14 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford is not a malcontent, just prescient. He knows what’s coming next. Or, more to the point, he knows what is not coming next. Even if Crawford wasn’t named winner of last season’s Sixth Man Award, a push for an extension would nonetheless make sense on many levels. Foremost is the expiration of the…

  16. Carmelo Anthony put a bounty out on slapping a celebrity groupie

    Aug 29, 2010, 2:12 PM EDT

    So, I’m going to try and piece this together the best I can. Apparently there’s a woman, and I use that term loosely, by the name of Kat Stacks who is some sort of celebrity rap groupie. She has Hold on, let me check the PR manual. Hmm… okay, Step 1. Call your manager. Blah,…

  17. Wizards have inquired about Melo. Just like everyone else.

    Aug 28, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    From: The Office of Ridiculously Obvious Rumors To: ProBasketballTalk.com Readers Re: Wizards interested in Carmelo Dear Pro Basketball Talk Readers, This letter is to inform you that the Washington Post reports the Wizards have made an obligatory call regarding Carmelo Anthony’s availability. The same source that told Michael Lee of the Post that 29 other teams…

  18. Ujiri will meet with Melo to try and soothe the waters

    Aug 28, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Masai Ujiri and Dell Demps should get together and have a beer when the Nuggets and Hornets meet next season, because they’ve both been initiated into fire. Demps had to meet with Chris Paul within days of being hired by the Hornets, to try and convince him to chill out on his trade demands. Now…

  19. If Carmelo Anthony is gone, is Chauncey Billups far behind?

    Aug 27, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    If you’re going to blow up the team and rebuild — and it appears the Denver Nuggets hand has been forced in that regard — then you do it right. Go all the way down to the foundation. Spare nothing. Which is to say, if the Denver Nuggets are trading Carmelo Anthony (and J.R. Smith…

  20. Apparently Camelo Anthony doesn't want a title, just wants out

    Aug 27, 2010, 9:02 AM EDT

    The trading of Carmelo Anthony before the start of the season has gone from “if” to “where and for whom” if we are to believe the latest reports. And we do, as all signs point that way and have for a while. But from the list of possible trading partners out there — both the…

  21. Report: Carmelo Anthony told Denver owner face-to-face to trade him, team trying

    Aug 26, 2010, 7:38 PM EDT

    Congratulations on the new gig Masai Ujiri, now go trade Carmelo Anthony and make sure you get us a good deal… Not sure that was the exact welcoming package for the new Denver Nuggets general manager, but a new report says it may not be far off. And apparently the Nets and Clippers are the…

  22. Nuggets new owner dances around Carmelo Anthony question like a vet

    Aug 26, 2010, 10:55 AM EDT

    The thought of an NBA team owner intimately involved in player/personnel decisions instantly brings up thoughts of Michael Heisley. And that’s not a good thing. But Josh Kroenke — who will soon take control of the Nuggets from his father Stan — is the exception to the rule. He comes in with a basketball background.…

  23. Today's Carmelo Anthony speculation: It's all about the exciseman

    Aug 25, 2010, 12:57 PM EDT

    It appears that if Carmelo Anthony leaves Denver his preferred destinations are Houston and New York. Which baffles New Yorkers. How could any sane human being choose any city over New York, let alone one in Texas? Doesn’t Anthony realize that all the best restaurants, the best shops, the best people are in New York?…

  24. Another Denver contract sits unsigned, Nuggets offer David Griffin GM job but no deal

    Aug 24, 2010, 9:25 PM EDT

    What is it with nobody signing the contracts the Denver Nuggets are offering lately? The Denver Nuggets have offered Suns executive David Griffin their general managers job, but the two sides are still negotiating money, according to Sam Amick at FanHouse. A source close to the process said the holdup has everything to do with…

  25. Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard will be "Amazing" on the big screen

    Aug 24, 2010, 7:25 PM EDT

    I’ll take “movies destined for midnight showing cult status” for 400, Alex… Following in the footsteps of Ray Allen (in a good movie, “He Got Game“) and Shaquille O’Neal (what to say about “Kazaam“…), Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard are going to star in a movie together. Currently titled “Amazing,” it will be directed by…
