Denver Nuggets

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

    Feb 3, 2011, 12:48 PM EST

    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 —…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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.…

  5. 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…

  6. ‘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.…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. Could Deron Williams be the next Carmelo Anthony situation?

    Jan 24, 2011, 10:01 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    Next season, Deron Williams will make a cool $16.4 million. The year after that he will make a cool $17.8 million to lead the Utah Jazz — if he picks up his player option. Utah has been a frustrating place for Williams this season. They started out the season hot, as the cardiac kids winning…

  14. Baseline to baseline recap: Denver looks good against Indy. For whatever that’s worth.

    Jan 24, 2011, 12:50 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    In the real game of the night, Ben Roethlisberger was making the kind of heady plays on the field he can never seem to make off it, plus Rex Ryan’s level of disgust on the sidelines was surprisingly entertaining. But this is an NBA blog. And so our actual Game of the Night had to…

  15. Denver’s other big problem: Nene

    Jan 23, 2011, 10:31 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Beyond the ongoing, never-ending, painfully unresolved saga of Carmelo Anthony lies the dread and doom of another situation. If you check Denver’s books, you’ll notice that Nene has an ETO (Early Termination Option) for 2011, meaning he can jump ship and enter free agency should he elect to do so. Nene loves Denver and wants…

  16. Report: Knicks still lobbing Carmelo offers, Nuggets still rejecting

    Jan 22, 2011, 5:30 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    With the Nets out of the way, New York has resumed its calm, cool, and collected pursuit of Carmelo Anthony, but are hitting the same roadblock they have since the beginning: Denver doesn’t want hardly anything the Knicks have to offer. From The New York Post: A deal with the Nuggets appears to be, according…

  17. Carmelo Anthony misses shootaround, expected to play Friday against Lakers

    Jan 21, 2011, 2:30 PM EST

    Cavaliers Nuggets Basketball

    Carmelo Anthony did not take part in the Nuggets morning shootaround before taking on the Lakers Friday in Denver, with coach George Karl citing personal reasons. When pressed if Anthony would miss the game against the Lakers — players often miss practices or games right before they are traded — Karl told the Associated Press…

  18. Does nyet mean nyet? Nets not necessarily out of ‘Melo sweepstakes.

    Jan 21, 2011, 2:09 PM EST

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    The person with the strongest negotiating position is the person willing to walk away from the table. Nobody thought that was the New Jersey Nets — they needed a big star. They needed someone who could open their new Brooklyn home in 2012, who could attract other big time free agents to the team. They…

  19. Knicks’ Wilson Chandler fires agent, looks to cash in next summer

    Jan 21, 2011, 1:27 PM EST

    WChandler_Hinrich

    Back in the fall, Wilson Chandler’s agent Chris Luchey tried to convince Knicks GM Donnie Walsh to sign his client — whose rookie deal was about to end — to an extension. The Knicks are all about financial flexibility going forward, so they said no. Chandler has gone out and had the best year of…

  20. Daryl Morey wants to bring ‘Melo to Houston. He just can’t talk about it.

    Jan 21, 2011, 12:48 PM EST

    97474_rockets_nuggets_basketball_medium

    With the Nets out of the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes — if they really are out — the conventional wisdom is the Knicks jump to the front of the line. That may be true, the Nuggets seem likely to have conversations with them. But if the Nuggets are willing to consider a “rent-a-‘Melo” deal, GM Daryl…

  21. Kobe Bryant on Denver fans booing ‘Melo: “That’s stupid”

    Jan 20, 2011, 6:00 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Carmelo Anthony dropped 35 points on the Oklahoma City Thunder, taking over the fourth quarter, in what was one of the — if not the — best wins of the season for the Nuggets Wednesday. And still fans booed him during the post game, on court interview. Kobe Bryant doesn’t get that, as he told…

  22. Nets’ GM: We’re moving on, keeping flexibility for new CBA

    Jan 20, 2011, 3:29 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v New Jersey Nets

    Billy King seemed (and by some accounts was) stunned by Mikhail Prokhorov pulling the plug on the Carmelo Anthony trade talks. The strongest bargaining position is a willingness to walk away from the negotiating table — Prokhorov did that with gusto. Maybe the Nets and Nuggets do talk again, but Nets GM Billy King went…

  23. Knicks may get ‘Melo, but don’t expect it via free agency

    Jan 20, 2011, 1:55 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    There are a lot of questions and a lot of rumors flying around about what happens with Carmelo Anthony now that the Nets have pulled out of the running. One of the theories: Anthony will play out his contract, opt out next summer and come to the Knicks as a free agent. Not going to…

  24. Carmelo Anthony talks Nets, says he told them nothing

    Jan 20, 2011, 2:09 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony dunk

    When reporters descended on him postgame, Carmelo Anthony still hadn’t seen the press conference where  Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov pulled the plug on trade discussions that would have sent Anthony to New Jersey. (It’s understandable, Anthony had been a tad busy dropping 35 on the Thunder in a Nugget win). Still his post-game comments sounded…

  25. Winderman: Welcome to ‘Melodrama, Part II

    Jan 19, 2011, 11:09 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Sacramento Kings

    Now comes Part II of the Melo melodrama, and this could be even more intriguing. Not by volume, of course. The next incarnation won’t be a 15-player package. Rather, it will be fascinating to see just how much a team is willing to ante up for a potential four-month rental. In many ways, Anthony could…
