    The Nets and Denver reportedly have a deal in place for Carmelo Anthony, if he approves it. Now the Knicks have apparently put their offer on the table. According to Mark Spears of Yahoo (via twitter) the Knicks have offered Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Eddy Curry’s expiring contract (and Curry too, we suppose)…

  2. ‘Melo says nothing yet, but he hopes to have offer this weekend

    Feb 18, 2011, 5:45 PM EST

    Cavaliers Nuggets Basketball

    Carmelo Anthony spoke to the media for 20 minutes on Friday afternoon and was able to sound like an innocent bystander in his own trade drama. “I don’t know/out of my control,” was his mantra as he said nothing was in place. No meetings are set with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov or Knicks owner James…

  3. Anthony apparently has no plan to meet with Nets owner

    Just in case you hadn’t had enough fun with the latest surge of Carmelo Anthony trade rumors (that may or may not be exactly the same in status as the rumors which circulated some six months ago), here’s a fun bit: Anthony apparently has no knowledge at all of the reported meeting he’s supposed to…

  4. Nuggets and Nets reportedly agree on deal, leaving Anthony to determine his own fate

    Feb 18, 2011, 1:01 PM EST

    Anthony_dunk

    At long last, a deal is reportedly in place which would make Carmelo Anthony a Net…if he so chooses. According to Fred Kerber of the New York Post, New Jersey and Denver have agreed to terms on a deal that would bring the Anthony trade saga to its overdue conclusion. However, as has been the…

  5. Knicks Walsh under pressure to make ‘Melo deal, but Nets have upper hand

    Feb 17, 2011, 8:44 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Knicks fans are in “Carmelo Anthony or bust” mode — they want him and they want him now. Get him and the Knicks win the title, the housing market will rebound, and the Dodo bird will return from extinction. Well, that’s what it sounds like on sports talk radio anyway. Knicks decision maker Donnie Walsh…

  6. The other Nugget everybody wants? Nene.

    Feb 17, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Do people realize how good Nene is? He’s not just another one-named Brazilian. He averages 15 points a game but he’s shooting 63.7 percent to get them (best percentage in the league, easily). He’s strong and draws a higher percentage and-one fouls than anyone in the league save Reggie Evans. He’s good on the boards.…

  7. Report: Nuggets want four Knicks starters for Carmelo Anthony

    Feb 17, 2011, 10:47 AM EST

    carmelo anthony dunk

    Knicks fans have been clamoring for Donnie Walsh to just make the deal — doesn’t matter what the price is, the Knicks need Carmelo Anthony. Knicks fans are desperate. You still sure? According to Jonathan Abrams at the New York Times, the price is every starter not named Stoudemire. According to a Knicks official, Denver…

  8. Report: Nets, Blazers talking point guard swap: Andre Miller for Devin Harris

    Feb 17, 2011, 9:50 AM EST

    Devin Harris, Zach Randolph, Tony Allen

    The New Jersey Nets have not been all that happy with Devin Harris of late. I’m not sure they should be — statistically he’s playing better than last season and this is what you get out of him most years. His points per game may be down (especially of late) but he is shooting less…

  9. Report: Nets back in mix, talking to Nuggets about ‘Melo

    Feb 16, 2011, 7:58 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    It just felt from the first minutes like this was going to happen. The New Jersey Nets and Denver Nuggets are talking Carmelo Anthony trade again, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo, the Bergen Record and ESPN’s Chris Broussard. One source described talks as “progressing” and said they have been ongoing between Denver and New…

  10. Bulls looking at two guard help, but chemistry trumps all

    Feb 16, 2011, 4:53 PM EST

    J.R. Smith

    The Bulls are happy with themselves just the way they are, in a Stuart Smalley kind of way — they’re good enough, they’re smart enough, and doggone it, people like them. Sure, they could use an upgrade at the two, they know that, but they are not about to make a move that could damage…

  11. Isiah Thomas does not deny he is consulting with Knicks

    Feb 16, 2011, 4:19 PM EST

    Image (1) ithomas_noh8-thumb-250x250-17886.jpg for post 3594

    This post will help you understand why, during the press conference introducing Carmelo Anthony as a Knick next week, you will hear Donnie Walsh thank Isiah Thomas through gritted teeth. Thomas was on sports talk radio in Miami Tuesday night and, amazingly, there was little talk about FIU basketball and a lot about the Knicks.…

  12. Carmelo Anthony trade talks slowly picking up steam

    Feb 16, 2011, 10:53 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    Haven’t we — and all the parties involved — been talking about this since last summer? If so, how can things be dragging out so slowly now? But it is. Nothing has been quick or painless about the Carmelo Anthony trade situation. But now something is going to go down in the next week. It…

  13. Carmelo Anthony trade updates: Don’t believe anybody

    Feb 15, 2011, 9:38 AM EST

    carmelo anthony

    It’s at the point with the Carmelo Anthony trade drama to stop taking anything anybody says seriously. It’s all lies, spin and negotiation tactics. Any truth in comments from people involved in the trade is incidental to their motives. Look at Tuesday’s reports. The New York Daily News is saying the Knicks could make a…

  14. Expect Carmelo Anthony to play for the West at the All-Star Game

    Feb 14, 2011, 9:17 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    If Carmelo Anthony is traded to the Knicks or Nets (or any team in the East) before Sunday, he would play for the East in the All-Star Game. And then LaMarcus Aldridge would get his just reward. But don’t bet on it. You can expect Anthony to be with the Nuggets — and the Western…

  15. Nets, Nuggets still not talking about Carmelo Anthony again

    Feb 14, 2011, 5:09 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    When Mikhail Prokhorov pulled the Nets out of Carmelo Anthony chase, there were some around the NBA who said he was just acting and trying to come off as a bad ass at the negotiating table. He was trying to establish his presence and persona with a dramatic move. My thought: If you made $15…

  16. J.R. Smith: “(The Nuggets) don’t really know what they want to do.”

    Feb 13, 2011, 10:00 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    J.R. Smith is an innocent bystander (for once, hey-o!) in all this drama regarding Melo (or…Melodrama, get it?). He’s just trying to go out there and play his best. His play this year has been a big reason the Nuggets, despite all the distractions, are sixth in the West, and feature the best offense in…

  17. Carmelo Anthony is really impressed with how Carmelo Anthony has handled things

    Feb 12, 2011, 5:08 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    You know, it’s not easy being Carmelo Anthony. You’re a featured player on the top offense in the league, the Denver Nuggets. You’re defended nightly by the best wing defender the opponent can throw at you. You’re trying to deal with a delicate situation regarding how best to continue your career in a larger market,…

  18. Mike D’Antoni to Knicks fans: Stop chanting “we want Me-lo”

    Feb 11, 2011, 11:26 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    We all get it Knicks fans, you want Carmelo Anthony. You’re convinced he is the next piece of the puzzle. And so long as that puzzle isn’t defense, we agree with you. People 3,000 miles away know you want ‘Melo. The brass in Denver knows you want ‘Melo. Donnie Walsh and James Dolan know you…

  19. Video: Arron Afflalo’s game winner ends Mavericks’ streak

    Feb 11, 2011, 10:01 AM EST

    Arron Afflalo, Francisco Elson

    This is about as clutch a regular season shot as you are going to see. Watch the play develop for Chauncey Billups to come off a Nene screen, while Arron Afflalo stands ready for the corner three. But the play breaks down and Afflalo moves up so he can become a pressure outlet. Which Billups…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Arron Afflalo kills the Mavericks streak

    Feb 11, 2011, 8:48 AM EST

    Arron Afflalo, Denver Nuggets

    What you missed while wondering if your dog ate your toes…. The Lakers getting a win — not a statement, just a win — against Boston is our Game of the Night. Mavericks 121, Nuggets 120: Arron Afflalo is a great story. Back at UCLA he was the man — they ran him off double…

  21. Winderman: Lakers shouldn’t trade Bynum now because they’ll need to later

    Feb 9, 2011, 8:19 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    Let’s see: You don’t trade Andrew Bynum because it compromises the Lakers’ size advantage. You don’t trade Andrew Bynum because it compromises the Lakers’ already questionable defense. You don’t trade Andrew Bynum for Carmelo Anthony because Jim Buss loves the guy to pieces. Fair enough. All (except the latter) legitimate points. But here’s another one:…

  22. Warriors asking about Nene, just because

    Feb 9, 2011, 6:58 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    I suppose it never hurts to ask. Despite their lack of compatible assets, the Golden State Warriors are reportedly inquiring as to the availability of Nene, the highly efficient pivot who could make all of the Dubs’ dreams come true. From Marcus Thompson II of the San Jose Mercury News: According to multiple sources, the…

  23. If not traded, ‘Melo says he’d consider signing with Denver after all. Right.

    Feb 9, 2011, 4:25 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Since day one of the ‘Melodrama, whenever Carmelo Anthony has been asked if he would sign with Denver he has said it was one of the options he would consider. That’s not what his people — the fine folks from CAA, for example — were saying privately to the Nuggets and everyone else. They said…

  24. Sorry to spoil the party — Lakers have no plans to trade for ‘Melo

    Feb 9, 2011, 8:15 AM EST

    Image (1) bynum-thumb-250x176-5609.jpg for post 96

    We went over the ways we didn’t think it made sense for the Lakers to trade for Carmelo Anthony — they take on much more salary and give up their defensive anchor when the team needs to focus on getting stops. Now, multiple reports from guys close to the team say no, the Lakers have…

  25. MRI reveals “no serious damage” to Billups’ knee

    Feb 8, 2011, 6:27 PM EST

    Image (1) Billups_game-thumb-250x302-7294.jpg for post 787

    With the Carmelo/Bynum rumors swirling about, it’s another strange day to be a Nuggets fan, but there is some good news for the Denver faithful. Courtesy of the Denver Post’s Chris Dempsey: Chauncey Billups strained his left knee Monday night, but an MRI today revealed no further damage to the Denver Nuggets guard, the team…
