Denver Nuggets

  1. Jason Kidd calls "B.S." on report he tried to talk 'Melo out of New Jersey

    Sep 28, 2010, 3:58 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony clearly is having second thoughts about taking his talents to New Jersey. Can’t imagine why. We just listened to Springsteen’s “Born To Run” and he made it sound like such a wonderful place. Then there was the report from Sam Amick of FanHouse that Jason Kidd warned Melo about the perils of New…

  2. Carmelo Anthony isn't part of team promotional filming

    Sep 28, 2010, 9:23 AM EDT

    Whatever state of limbo it may be in, the trade talks for Carmelo Anthony are not dead. The best sign of that: Denver did not ask him to participate in any of the team’s promotional filming on media day. We all read the quotes about the upcoming season on media day, but another part of…

  3. Carmelo Anthony sounds like LeBron, says he'll keep his options open

    Sep 27, 2010, 3:32 PM EDT

    “I’m here today… Whatever the future holds, it holds. I’m leaving my options open right now. That was Carmelo Anthony today, sounding a lot like LeBron James a year before. What the Denver Nuggets want to avoid is a LeBron repeat — an entire season of speculation followed by losing their best player and getting…

  4. Carmelo Anthony at Nuggets camp. Now what?

    Sep 27, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony is in the Nuggets locker room. The talks around trading him continue to swirl. Those two things we know… So, now what? We wait. Wait for Anthony to speak at camp (which he may or may not do, things keep changing). Wait for someone to blink. For Anthony to sign a deal and…

  5. Denver, Philadelphia talking Carmelo Anthony, Andre Iguodala trade

    Sep 26, 2010, 8:04 PM EDT

    UPDATE 8:04 pm: The Daily News is now reporting that Anthony’s people said he would not sign an extension in Philly. Which would make any other negotiations moot. Basically, Melo’s people trying to keep the Knicks and Bulls in play, the Nuggets keep looking for the best deal with little interest in making Melo happy.…

  6. Hey Carmelo, if not the Knicks or Nets, how about the Timberwolves?

    Sep 26, 2010, 5:57 PM EDT

    If the four-team blockbuster with the Nets falls through, if the Nuggets are not going to accept a deal from the Knicks, if the Bulls are not throwing Joakim Noah in the deal, what is Carmelo Anthony going to do? How about the Minnesota Timberwolves? We’re not kidding, there was this note in the Twin…

  7. Nets players practicing, trying to ignore large cloud over court

    Sep 26, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    It’s no fun when the talk of training camp is who is not there, not who is. But that’s where it stands for the Nets, who have made their play for Carmelo Anthony right at the start of training camp. That is the talk, whether Anthony will sign an extension to come to the Nets…

  8. Kobe's advice to Carmelo Anthony: Do what makes you happy

    Sep 26, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant has been there. He has demanded a trade, he has wanted out, wanted to be anywhere else. He has wanted to go where he was relevant and the management wanted to win. Yet he also learned the Wizard of Oz lesson — there is no place like home. Kobe has spoken to Carmelo…

  9. Anthony, Nuggets have to play ball together one way or another

    Sep 26, 2010, 10:35 AM EDT

    The rumors just keep flying around a four-team trade that would bring Carmelo Anthony to New York seems to be slipping away. Why? Because Denver and Anthony can’t seem to play nice together. So it looks more and more like they will have to play together on the court to start the season in what…

  10. Report: Carmelo Anthony deal still a day (or more) away from completion

    Sep 25, 2010, 8:36 PM EDT

    It’s alright NBA heads. If a report from Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger is correct, it’s safe to stop checking your sports tickers obsessively for the next day or so. According to Orr’s unspecified source (…sigh), the four-team deal that would send Carmelo Anthony to the Nets is at least another day or so…

  11. Conflicting reports on if Anthony approved extension with Nets, clearing way for trade

    Sep 24, 2010, 8:01 PM EDT

    It appears to have come down to this — if Carmelo Anthony approves a three-year, $65 million (or similar) contract extension with the New Jersey Nets, a complex four-team trade likely will go forward. According to one report, he has. New York Daily News Nets beat writer Stefan Bondy tweeted this Friday evening: Reliable source:…

  12. By the way, Carlos Boozer doesn't want to trade Joakim Noah

    Sep 24, 2010, 1:36 PM EDT

    This all may be moot now, but for the record Carlos Boozer is good with the Bulls seeming to drop out of the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes. “I want Joakim Noah to stay,” Boozer said on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “I don’t want to see him in any uniform but a Bulls…

  13. Nets, Nuggets working on four team deal for Carmelo Anthony

    Sep 24, 2010, 1:10 PM EDT

    You have to say this about the new New Jersey Nets regime — they hustle. The Nets are working feverishly to come up with a complex multi-team deal that would bring Carmelo Anthony to the Garden State (for a couple of years, and then Brooklyn), according to both Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo and ESPN’s Mark…

  14. Joakim Noah doesn't want to be traded

    Sep 23, 2010, 9:26 AM EDT

    Be part of a powerhouse team that could be very good in Chicago or be part of a rebuilding process in Denver where you will forever be “the guy we traded the best player in franchise history for.” Shockingly, Joakim Noah is partial to the first option. Still he went to the old but true…

  15. Nuggets asking the world for Carmelo, Nets pushing to make it happen

    Sep 23, 2010, 1:05 AM EDT

    The Chicago Bulls talked with Denver, but the Nuggets demanded that Joakim Noah be part of the deal. So it fell apart. The New Jersey Nets talked to Denver, but the Nuggets demanded that Brook Lopez be part of the deal. So it fell apart. Sensing a pattern here? Denver is listening to offers for…

  16. Carmelo Anthony on the rumors: "i just want to play ball"

    Sep 22, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Whatever is swirling through the media, through back channels and into NBA front offices, Carmelo Anthony is going to come out at Nuggets camp and say all the right things. He’s got that down. He’ll do it to microphones next week, but he went to twitter and made these comments Wednesday night: Everyone has there…

  17. Chicago trading Joakim Noah for Carmelo Anthony? Bad idea.

    Sep 22, 2010, 12:01 PM EDT

    Who knows who put this rumor out there — Denver staffers trying to up the ante, Carmelo Anthony people trying to push the deal forward — but it is the debate around the league: Should Chicago throw Joakim Noah into the deal to bring Carmelo Anthony to Chicago? No. No. A thousand times no. Let’s…

  18. Carmelo Anthony renews push for trade to New York or Chicago; Denver in no rush

    Sep 22, 2010, 8:22 AM EDT

    If you’re wondering why so many — and at times conflicting — rumors are coming out about the Carmelo Anthony trade situation in the last few days, here’s your answer. Anthony and his CAA team (led by agent Leon Rose) have stepped up to pressure a move before training camp starts, according to ESPN. And…

  19. Carmelo Anthony rumors update (please bring plenty of salt)

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:32 PM EDT

    There are almost more rumors about Carmelo Anthony out there than there are people laughing at David Hasselhoff after last night. Almost. We’re going to talk about some key ones, but first we start with the trade rumor primer, just as a reminder: Every leaked rumor has a motive behind it. Nobody at this stage…

  20. Erick Dampier down to Rockets, Heat, Hawks, Nuggets

    Sep 21, 2010, 9:58 AM EDT

    Either the Rockets or the Heat are about to get a nice boost to their title hopes. That or the Hawks or Nuggets will get a nice boost to their front lines. Erick Dampier worked out for the Houston Rockets Monday and met with coach Rick Adelman, according to the Houston Chronicle. Dampier will do…

  21. Report: Nets now frontrunner to land Carmelo Anthony

    Sep 20, 2010, 6:10 PM EDT

    After a day of wild speculation — from the Clippers to the Sixers — it appears the frontrunner to trade for Carmelo Anthony is the most logical option. The New Jersey Nets are in the drivers seat, according to Chad Ford at ESPN. Several league sources on Monday told ESPN.com that they believe the Nets…

  22. Nuggets soften the hard line, are suddenly more open to the idea of dealing Carmelo Anthony

    Sep 20, 2010, 3:26 AM EDT

    Oh, what an intricate web the Carmelo Anthony trade rumors have woven. Melo has been linked to a dozen NBA teams, several book clubs, and at least one amateur magicians’ alliance since his desire to be traded became public, but the Nuggets’ willingness to play along with Anthony’s whimsy has been anything but concrete. Obviously…

  23. Good news, everyone! La La Vasquez has chimed in on 'Melo again.

    Sep 18, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Just so we’re clear, this isn’t a woman thing. If this were the WNBA, I wouldn’t want their significant others chiming in on what’s going on with them as free agents or trade prospects, either. This mostly has to do with it being La La Vasquez. After La La decided to open her mouth and…

  24. 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…

  25. 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:…
