  1. 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:…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

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

    Feb 9, 2011, 8:15 AM EST

    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…

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

    Feb 8, 2011, 6:27 PM EST

    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…

  6. Is Carmelo Anthony to Lakers rumor just to prod the Knicks?

    Feb 8, 2011, 5:05 PM EST

    carmelo anthony

    Of course they feel that way. Suddenly reports coming of New York writers are saying that the Carmelo Anthony to the Lakers for Andrew Bynum rumors that sprung forth today are really about the Knicks. Because it’s always about you, New York, isn’t it? Always. First we have Alan Hahn at Newsday who writes: A…

  7. Minnesota likely to trade Corey Brewer, ‘Melo deal or not

    Feb 8, 2011, 4:13 PM EST

    coreybrewer

    Corey Brewer is the latest in a long and proud line of players to have his name dragged into the Carmelo Anthony trade talks. Really, it’s almost a right of passage in the NBA at this point everyone has done it. Except that if this ‘Melo deal fall through, too, Brewer is still likely to…

  8. Report: Lakers, Nuggets have preliminary Carmelo Anthony talks

    Feb 8, 2011, 12:28 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum Carmelo Anthony

    UPDATE 12:28 pm: Jim Buss — the son of owner Jerry Buss and the guy who is the real day-to-day head of the Lakers basketball-side operations — turned down a Carmelo Anthony for Andrew Bynum trade, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News (on twitter). He adds that Phil Jackson and Kobe…

  9. Three-team talks about Carmelo Anthony trade continue, Nuggets still dragging feet

    Feb 8, 2011, 11:06 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    UPDATE 11:06 am: In an effort to push the deal forward, Knicks owner James Dolan called Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke directly to negotiate a deal, according to the New York Daily News. According to a source familiar with the negotiations, Dolan’s decision to become more involved in the Anthony trade talks is a sign that…

  10. Stop us if you’ve heard this one: New York closing in on Melo

    Feb 6, 2011, 12:52 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Recently we spread the word on a Yahoo! report saying Melo’s people had informed teams that the Knicks were the only team he would sign an extension with. From there, there has been more movement towards an actual trade with New York, signaling a possible shift in Denver’s so-far ice-cold approach to dealing with the…

  11. J.R. Smith tagged with punishment for an on-court offense. Huh. Something new every day.

    Feb 5, 2011, 7:29 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    So when the Jazz played the Nuggets Friday night, Raja Bell decided to bury himself in the cerebral cortex of one J.R. Smith. Granted, it’s not really like that’s the toughest nut to crack. J.R. can shoot the rock, but he leaks crazy out of his head like a fire hydrant. So once Bell got…

  12. Walsh gets a win, Knicks hire former Nugget GM Warkentien

    Feb 5, 2011, 12:21 PM EST

    Mark Walkenstein

    In a week where he needed one, Knicks president of basketball operations Donnie Walsh got a win. The Knicks have hired former Nuggets GM Mark Warkentien as their director of pro personnel, the team announced Saturday. Since he was expected to be hired as a consultant so this is a much more entrenched position within…

  13. Report: Knicks sitting pretty in Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes

    Feb 5, 2011, 7:57 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    It’s good to be the Knicks right now. Sure on the court too, where they are the best they’ve been in a decade. But we were talking in the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes, where the Knicks appear to have all the winning numbers. A new report by Marc Spears of Yahoo confirms that. Several sources told…

  14. Cuban reiterates (sort of) Mavs would be willing to trade for ‘Melo without extension

    Feb 3, 2011, 12:48 PM EST

    Image (1) mcuban_cheers-thumb-250x375-14764.jpg for post 2807

    You kind of have to read between the lines of the Mavericks owner Mark Cuban told the Sporting News. Well, not very hard. It’s actually obvious what he is really saying, he just doesn’t want to write David Stern another large check. Cuban can’t say Carmelo Anthony by name — that would be tampering —…

  15. Deron Williams out again Wednesday, to see wrist specialist

    Feb 2, 2011, 2:22 PM EST

    Deron Williams

    The Utah Jazz are not right without Deron Williams. No offense intended Earl Watson, but the offense is sluggish and sloppy with him out. If you’ve seen the Jazz without Williams, it has not been pretty (even if they have won two of three). It will not be pretty tonight either, when Williams misses a…

  16. Carmelo Anthony talks trade but says nothing. Again.

    Feb 1, 2011, 10:41 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Carmelo Anthony’s walk from the locker room to the court Monday in New Jersey was lined with photos of construction and renderings of the finished new Barclays Center being built for the Nets in Brooklyn. Open for your convenience in 2012. For the Nets first 22 home games that artwork was not there, John Schuhmann…

  17. George Karl thinks ‘Melo could be a Nugget all season

    Jan 31, 2011, 10:07 PM EST

    Image (1) anthony_Karl-thumb-250x181-21662.jpg for post 6222

    Maybe this is just wishful thinking — if you’re a coach, you don’t want to lose your best scorer, you don’t want to embark on a rebuilding project. So you hope and convince yourself…. George Karl thinks Carmelo Anthony could be a Nugget through the end of the season, as he told the Associated Press.…

  18. Knicks to hire former Nuggets GM — and not just for the ‘Melo connections

    Jan 31, 2011, 8:33 AM EST

    Mark Walkenstein

    It seems to be a move about Carmelo Anthony in the short term, but this could be about the long-term future of the Knicks front office. Knicks GM Donnie Walsh is close to hiring former Nuggets GM Mark Warkentien as a consultant, Adrian Wojnarowski reports at Yahoo. You know, the job that was going to…

  19. ‘Melo isn’t original — Kareem forced his way to Lakers the same way

    Jan 28, 2011, 1:00 PM EST

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with Bucks

    It’s a new era. NBA players are taking control of their careers in a way they never have before. Did you see Miami? Now we have Carmelo Anthony trying to manuever his way out of Denver to New York like no player has ever done before. Wrong. Players have done it before. More than once.…

  20. Chauncey Billups sticks up for “Pistons royalty” Rip Hamilton

    Jan 27, 2011, 8:57 AM EST

    NBA Finals Game 3: San Antonio Spurs v Detroit Pistons

    Wednesday night, after he dispatched the Pistons players with four three pointers in the final three minutes, Chauncey Billups took aim at Detroit’s coaches and management. Wednesday made the eighth straight game Rip Hamilton has missed. Officially last night was because of the stomach flu, but if he had shown up to the arena early…

  21. Dunk of the Night: J.R. Smith should not be given a clear path

    Jan 27, 2011, 8:38 AM EST

    J.R. Smith, Tim Duncan

    Ty Lawson really creates this play, he gets the penetration and with it the defenders to commit. Then he makes the deft little pass. But J.R. Smith finishes. Strong. This might not have even been Smith’s best dunk of the night, he had a sweet reverse on a fast break. But we like this one…

  22. Rodney Stuckey leaves game with shoulder injury, X-rays negative

    Jan 26, 2011, 10:00 PM EST

    Rodney Stuckey injured

    In the first quarter Wednesday Rodney Stuckey tried to fight around a Carmelo Anthony pick and injured his shoulder to the point he had to leave the game. Stuckey will not return to the Nuggets game, however the X-rays were negative. Which is good news. But watching him as he left the game whatever he…

  23. Carmelo Anthony has no idea what is going to happen

    Jan 26, 2011, 9:53 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Through the entire Melodrama — from before training camp up through last week — there was a confidence around Carmelo Anthony. Like he felt in some control of the situation, like he knew what was going to happen. No more. Mikhail Prokhorov changed the game. The Nets walked away. Everybody’s fallback option is gone. The…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Celtics may not have needed Perkins for this one

    Jan 26, 2011, 3:34 AM EST

    Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett

    What you missed while wishing Ricky Gervais would host the Oscars… Nuggets 120, Wizards 109: This was the dreaded fourth game in five nights for the Wizards, usually the night every team mails it in. The good news is that Andray Blatche didn’t — he hustled. Didn’t see that coming, did you Flip? It was…

  25. Report: Nuggets may have interest in Anthony Randolph from Knicks. Really?

    Jan 25, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Milwaukee Bucks

    Every report that comes out of New York about a possible deal the Denver Nuggets like enough to send Carmelo Anthony to Madison Square Garden is just harder to believe than the last one. I have no doubt that “a person with knowledge of the Nuggets’ thinking” told the respectable Alan Hahn of Newsday this…
