  1. ‘Melo gives New Jersey a star, does not make them winners

    Jan 12, 2011, 11:21 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    It’s plainly obvious why New Jersey wants Carmelo Anthony — they need a big star to sell their new Brooklyn home (opening in 2012, didn’t you see the pictures?). You don’t sell those luxury suits when the building’s doors open, you sell them this coming summer, a year out. Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov needs his…

  2. Report: ‘Melo undecided about signing an extension with Nets; says wife not driving choices

    Jan 12, 2011, 1:19 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    At the end of the day, Carmelo Anthony holds the hammer. And he wants to make it clear it is his hammer, not his wife’s. That hammer is in the form of his signature on a three-year, $65 million extension sitting on the table in front of him. Just like it has been since this…

  3. Carmelo Anthony trade delay holding up other deals

    Jan 11, 2011, 8:38 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    There are 15 players — and maybe more — who would be changing teams if the proposed Carmelo Anthony trade moves out of its current state of limbo and becomes reality. That’s a lot of players, and the Anthony trade has become a dam, holding up a number of other smaller trades, according to multiple…

  4. Report: George Karl to return to Nuggets regardless of trade

    Jan 11, 2011, 6:54 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    Would you think that George Karl, who will turn 60 next season after 22 years of NBA coaching, might not want to take on a rebuilding project. But apparently he does, telling the team he would stay even if they gut the team as part of the Carmelo Anthony trade, according to Chris Tomasson at…

  5. Avery Johnson says don’t expect trades during Nets’ road trip

    Jan 11, 2011, 4:41 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    Another sign that the Carmelo Anthony trade is not on the fast track… Starting Wednesday night the Nets head out on one of those grueling four-games-in-six-days road trips to the West Coast. Johnson said his roster likely will not be shaken up during the trip. “This is the team that will be playing on the…

  6. Chauncey Billups could play on moon, prefers Denver

    Jan 11, 2011, 3:52 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Denver Nuggets

    Chauncey Billups is a Denver native happily getting to play out the end of his career in his hometown. Well, either that or the swamps of Jersey (and maybe Brooklyn in a couple of years). Billups has been swept up in the momentum of the Carmelo Anthony trade rumors — he would be moved to…

  7. Video: Carmelo Anthony speaks after practice

    Jan 11, 2011, 3:42 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Sacramento Kings

    You may have seen the quotes and read the latest updates, but really, you should hear it from the man himself. Courtesy our friends at NBCNewYork.com (where Josh Alper is killing it) we have video of ‘Melo’s post-practice comments from Tuesday. The interview where he says this is going to take some time and aside…

  8. Funniest part of ‘Melo trade: Nuggets asked about Blake Griffin

    Jan 11, 2011, 11:16 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    Can’t blame a guy for trying, I guess. Of all the crazy rumors flying around the Carmelo Anthony trade scenarios this one (from Marc Stein of ESPN) made me laugh out loud. The Clippers’ Blake Griffin is one of Denver’s dream targets in an Anthony trade, but sources told ESPN.com that those overtures have been…

  9. Anthony feels bad Billups caught up in trade rumors

    Jan 11, 2011, 9:04 AM EST

    Image (1) canthony_billups-thumb-250x140-18636.jpg for post 3784

    Chauncey Billups missed the Nuggets practice yesterday, and the headache that caused that was real, his agent emphasized to Marc Spears of Yahoo. That doesn’t mean he wants to be traded. Billups, a Denver native, has said he wants to finish his career as a Nugget and maybe move into the front office. However, he…

  10. Carmelo Anthony hints the Knicks may not want him, trade may take time

    Jan 10, 2011, 4:31 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Carmelo Anthony practiced with the Denver Nuggets Monday — a sign that nothing is imminent on the trade front — as did everyone else whose name has come up in recent trade talks. The exception was Chauncey Billups (officially out due to a headache, which I bet all the trade rumors have become for him).…

  11. What’s the holdup on ‘Melo deal? Al Harrington’s bad deal.

    Jan 10, 2011, 12:53 PM EST

    Al Harrington

    UPDATE 12:53 pm: Here is the latest, from multiple reports, at this time on the still pending Carmelo Anthony trade: Everything seems to be in Denver’s court, but they continue to tweak offers and try to work out the best deal — they have even pushed the Nets to take on Renaldo Balkman in addition…

  12. Would Stoudemire be happy if Knicks don’t get ‘Melo?

    Jan 10, 2011, 11:32 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v New York Knicks

    Carmelo Anthony has long said his preferred destination was the New York Knicks, but it looks like a deal sending him to the New Jersey Nets is close to fruition (‘Melo may love New York but apparently what he loves more is the $10 million or so he would likely give up going there as…

  13. If ‘Melo trade happens, Devin Harris could be moved again

    Jan 10, 2011, 9:11 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New Jersey Nets

    One of the many parts on the move in the proposed and on-the-cusp Carmelo Anthony trade is point guard Devin Harris going from New Jersey to Denver. But that might not be his final stop. The Dallas Mavericks might make a move to go get Harris from Denver, according to Mark Stein at ESPN. And…

  14. Camelo Anthony says trade is not imminent

    Jan 10, 2011, 2:10 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Sacramento Kings

    While there is a lot of smoke around the fire that is Carmelo Anthony being traded to the Nets, the man himself threw some water on that after the Nuggets loss Sunday saying things were not moving as fast as it appears to everyone else. Anthony wouldn’t say much when pressed about the trade rumors…

  15. UPDATED: Carmelo Anthony trade talks move closer as Nets zero in

    Jan 9, 2011, 6:26 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Sacramento Kings

    The New Jersey Nets have managed to move their efforts to obtain Carmelo Anthony in a trade with the Denver Nuggets “further along” according to a report from ESPN New York. Here’s where we stand at posting time: The teams are the same as last we left, with the Pistons pulled into the deal and…

  16. Chauncey Billups says if traded he will become free agent next summer

    Jan 8, 2011, 10:34 PM EST

    Image (1) canthony_billups-thumb-250x140-18636.jpg for post 3784

    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…

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

    Jan 8, 2011, 3:14 PM EST

    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…

  18. 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,…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
