    Chauncey Billups may have thrown a wrench into Denver’s trade plans for Carmelo Anthony. The Nuggets want to deal with Nets — where they can get Derrick Favors and some first-round draft picks — but Anthony’s agent has pushed for getting Chauncey Billups and other players traded to New Jersey with him because Anthony doesn’t…

  2. Chauncey, Rip and ‘Melo with Nets? It’s what could have been in Detroit.

    NBA Finals Game 3: San Antonio Spurs v Detroit Pistons

    Let’s travel back in our minds to 2003, when at the movie theater we were all Finding Nemo and at the NBA draft the Detroit Pistons went with Darko Milicic over Carmelo Anthony. We wince now (we winced then, too), but Detroit went on to win the NBA title the next season thanks to stifling…

  3. Report: Nets try to draw Pistons into three-way deal for ‘Melo

    Jan 7, 2011, 10:10 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    Ever since the collapse of a four-team deal before the season, the New Jersey Nets and Denver Nuggets have been trying to lure teams into a three- or four-way-trade that would end with Carmelo Anthony in New Jersey and a lot of picks and young players headed to Denver. The latest — the Detroit Pistons,…

  4. Games of the night: Dallas has injuries, what was Denver’s excuse?

    Jan 7, 2011, 8:09 AM EST

    Kevin Durant dunks

    Before the season, if you peaked ahead on the schedule, this looked like an interesting Thursday night of basketball. Turns out, not so much. Thunder 99, Mavericks 95: Dallas has the much-discussed injuries to Dirk Nowitzki and Caron Butler. The effort is still there and while this is a deep team, there are limits to…

  5. Nuggets, Nets, Cavs talked three-way ‘Melo deal

    Jan 7, 2011, 1:51 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    If you take away one thing from the latest reports and rumors on a Carmelo Anthony trade, take away this — the saga will likely to drag out until near the trade deadline Feb. 24. That said, talks are still going on, as Chris Broussard laid out at ESPN. He says that just before Christmas…

  6. Just to reiterate, ‘Melo is not returning to Denver

    Jan 4, 2011, 12:29 PM EST

    Francisco Garcia, Carmelo Anthony

    Last week, during the hiatus in the Carmelo Anthony trade talks around the tragic death of his sister, Denver Nuggets officials reportedly said that before they traded Anthony they wanted to see him, Chauncey Billups, Nene, Kenyon Martin and the whole healthy Nuggets team together first. As if that might change Anthony’s mind. As if…

  7. LeBron James, Courtney Lee with last night’s best dunks

    Jan 4, 2011, 8:11 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    Why choose just one? There are no rules that say there can only be one dunk of the night on this blog. Especially since we’re making up the rules as we go. In that spirit we give you LeBron James on the breakaway against the Bobcats. By the way, this was not the play where…

  8. Rockets not looking for picks, they want to trade for an All-Star

    Dec 30, 2010, 1:19 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Houston Rockets

    There are two sides to building a championship roster: Getting a couple All-Star players to lead it; then finding quality role players to go around them. When Daryl Morey took over as general manager of the Rockets the stars were in place — Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady. Morey built maybe the best group of…

  9. Report: Nets re-thinking pursuit of Carmelo Anthony

    Dec 30, 2010, 12:01 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    The tragic death of Carmelo Anthony’s sister — and the wise decision by the Nuggets to suspend trade talks while he was away from the team —created a de facto cooling of period on the spiraling trade talks for Melo. It gave teams time to reassess. And with that — and the mixed signals that…

  10. Nuggets called Timberwolves about Kevin Love last summer

    Dec 29, 2010, 8:12 PM EST

    Kevin Love

    It seemed last season that the Minnesota Timberwolves didn’t have a ton of love for Kevin Love. This season his play demanded it. But before the Wolves caught on, there were teams that recognized what the Wolves had and they coveted it. Nuggets coach George Karl said Wednesday that Denver called Minnesota about Kevin Love’s availability last…

  11. Carmelo Anthony to return to Nuggets Thursday

    Dec 28, 2010, 11:01 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Carmelo Anthony missed a fourth game Tuesday night following the death of his sister, but the Nuggets announced that he will return to the team Thursday. Mark Spears of Yahoo was first with the news on twitter. The Nuggets had lost three in a row without Anthony coming into Tuesday (they had an 18 point…

  12. Al Harrington dislocates thumb, listed as day-to-day

    Dec 27, 2010, 12:48 PM EST

    Harrington injured

    UPDATE 12:48 pm: The X-rays are in and there is no serious damage to Harrington’s thumb. He is listed as day-to-day. This could have been much worse, it’s a great break for the Nuggets. 11: 34 am: It was pretty clear when it happened Sunday that Al Harrington was in a lot of pain —…

  13. Sixers Lou Williams to sit out back-to-back

    Dec 26, 2010, 5:30 PM EST

    Louis Williams,  Hilton Armstrong

    The Sixers best player off the bench — guard Lou Williams — is getting the greatest Christmas gift of all: a new baby daughter. Because of that, he has been given off the Sunday and Monday back-to-back for the Sixers, according to Comcast Bay Area’s Matt Steinmetz (on twitter). Sunday the Sixers play Denver, Monday…

  14. Report: Nets looking to land Andre Miller along with ‘Melo

    Dec 25, 2010, 9:00 AM EST

    millertrade

    The Denver Nuggets have suspended trade talks for Carmelo Anthony through the weekend, as Anthony is currently at home with his family after the untimely death of his sister. It was the classy and right thing for the Nuggets to do. But it doesn’t stop the rumor mill from cranking. The Nets are hoping to…

  15. Nuggets lay down Christmas in Hollis… poorly

    Dec 23, 2010, 8:19 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Carmelo Anthony may want to go to New York, but if New York sees this it may not want Carmelo Anthony. Maybe THE classic hip-hop Christmas song (what else is in the competition?) gets the Denver Nuggets treatment. Which seems appropriate because they have the players with more ink than any rapper on the planet.…

  16. Nuggets make classy move, pause Carmelo Anthony trade talks while he’s out

    Dec 23, 2010, 8:38 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Carmelo Anthony is away from the Nuggets and back in Baltimore, grieving from the death of his sister to a pre-existing medical condition. He is expected to join up with the team again after Christmas. In a classy move — and a bit of a respite for the rest of us — the Nuggets management…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Nuggets are all back and healthy, but the Spurs won anyway

    Dec 23, 2010, 8:14 AM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Ty Lawson

    What you missed while reading how The Onion broke down the year in basketball… Spurs 109, Nuggets 103: The band is back together in Denver, everyone was back from injury (well, everyone except Carmelo Anthony who is dealing with a death in the family). The Nuggets had Chauncey Billups back running the show at the…

  18. Melo out against Spurs Wednesday due to death in family

    Dec 22, 2010, 12:52 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Carmelo Anthony will not suit up for the Denver Nuggets Wednesday night against the San Antonio Spurs so that he can attend to issues regarding a death in the family, the team announced. “Our entire organization supports Carmelo during this difficult time for him and his family,” Nuggets executive vice president of basketball operations Masai…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. Count J.R. Smith out of the dunk contest

    Dec 19, 2010, 3:42 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    I’m just saying… we could go ahead and give it to him anyway. J.R. Smith spoke to FanHouse after that absolute demolition of Gary Neal last week. You know, that dunk that was so bad Neal’s cousin’s realtor felt like he got yammed on? Turns out you shouldn’t expect to see J.R. lacing them up…

  23. Rudy Gay suspended for Saturday; George Karl, Andre Miller each get fined

    Dec 18, 2010, 5:20 PM EST

    Rudy Gay

    NBA VP of basketball operations and official Scrooge Stu Jackson was a busy man Saturday handing out lumps of coal to players and coaches he thought had been naughty. Rudy Gay has been suspended one game for his body check from behind of Luis Scola in the Grizzlies loss Friday night to the Rockets. The…

  24. This is it for Antonio McDyess, he says he’s ready to retire

    Dec 17, 2010, 1:13 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs, Game 3

    You know how some athletes say they are going to retire but they just keep coming back year after year after year, then they send pictures of their junk to hot young reporters, then they come back again. None of that is happening with Antonio McDyess. Check out what he told Chris Tomasson of FanHouse…

  25. Video: J.R. Smith’s vicious two-hand dunk

    Dec 17, 2010, 8:50 AM EST

    J.R. Smith

    The Spurs players end up on a lot of posters because they try to take the charge — and it won them the game last night. But rookie Gary Neal, he’s just in a poster. This was as insane and powerful a dunk as you are going to see. Just put this on a loop…
