  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. Now what for Carmelo Anthony? Denver?

    Jan 19, 2011, 8:43 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Denver Nuggets

    A trade between Denver and New Jersey for Carmelo Anthony always made sense — for Denver and New Jersey. Anthony never seemed all that interested, the fact he wanted to meet with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov to be sold on the team does not make him sound like a guy who wanted to go there.…

  9. Nets walk away from Carmelo Anthony trade

    Jan 19, 2011, 6:12 PM EST

    Cavaliers Nuggets Basketball

    Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov has told Nets management to walk away from all Carmelo Anthony negotiations. He has reportedly cancelled a meeting with Anthony, and says his decision is final. The Denver Post has a recap of what Prokhorov said during a pre-game news conference on Wednesday about his decision to walk away from the table: “There…

  10. It’s time to end this ‘Melo drama

    Jan 19, 2011, 4:40 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Utah Jazz, Game 6

    It’s time. Carmelo Anthony and the will he/won’t he, New Jersey or New York (or Chicago) drama, it’s been an entertaining little sideshow to the NBA season. Some nice garlic mashed potatoes next to the rare prime rib. But for everyone involved, this saga has reached the point of diminishing returns. With the arrival Wednesday…

  11. Report: Melo’s reps push Bulls to get back in trade mix

    Jan 19, 2011, 3:07 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    Right now, there is little truth around Carmelo Anthony, just negotiating tactics. For example, steps by Anthony’s reps to create the illusion of demand, to pressure parties into agreeing to a deal. Carmelo Anthony’s representatives are pushing the Chicago Bulls to get back in the trade bidding for the Nuggets star, according to Adrian Wojnarowski…

  12. Anthony Morrow should be back with Nets this weekend… if he’s still a Net then

    Jan 19, 2011, 12:56 PM EST

    anthony morrow

    Anthony Morrow’s hamstring will have kept him out of the lineup for 17 games as of Wednesday night. If you don’t think that has impacted the Nets, you haven’t watched Stephen Graham play the two guard. But Morrow is expected to return this weekend to the team, maybe by Friday night, according to the twitter…

  13. Report: The holdup isn’t ‘Melo, it’s the Nuggets and Nets

    Jan 18, 2011, 9:48 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony Smiles

    While we’ve all been waiting (and waiting, and waiting…) for Carmelo Anthony to make up his mind — New York or New Jersey? — the Associated Press reports we’ve all had it wrong. He’s not the holdup — it’s the Nets and Nuggets. A person with knowledge of the proposed Carmelo Anthony trade says the…

  14. George Karl calls ‘Melo “distracted” during practice. Can’t imagine why.

    Jan 18, 2011, 7:31 PM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    At some point, all of the insanity surrounding Carmelo Anthony and his  proposed trade had to catch up with him. That point may have been today. Nuggets coach George Karl called Anthony “very distracted” during today’s practice, reports Chris Tomasson of FanHouse. “If Melo plays distracted, I can’t play him as many minutes,” Karl, whose…

  15. ‘Melo: “I would never go about it the way LeBron did”

    Jan 18, 2011, 11:54 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Denver Nuggets

    Carmelo Anthony may not be handling his departure from Denver perfectly, but after watching what LeBron James did last summer leaving Cleveland Anthony told Sports Illustrated he learned some lessons. “I would never go about it the way LeBron did it,” the Denver Nuggets’ three-time All-Star forward told Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Ian Thomsen… “If…

  16. Nets say no permission given to talk to ‘Melo. Yet. Meanwhile Knicks talk more picks.

    Jan 17, 2011, 5:10 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    Just as an update, here is where we stand with Carmelo Anthony and the trade rumors, a saga that has become more annoying and drawn out than a Grey’s Anatomy storyline. Sunday it was reported that the Nets were given permission to talk to Carmelo Anthony, which really meant Nets owners Mikhail Prokhorov and Jay-Z…

  17. Carmelo Anthony: “I don’t want to talk to nobody.”

    Jan 17, 2011, 4:18 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    As we told you previously, Carmelo Anthony has been offered freedom to talk to the New Jersey Nets about going East as part of a massive three-team trade… Except, for the record, he doesn’t want to talk to anyone. That’s what he said Sunday night, as reported by the Denver Post. “I don’t want to…

  18. ‘Melo says it’s all about winning. Trade to Nets moves closer. Do those two things go together?

    Jan 15, 2011, 7:32 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    It’s getting close. The Nuggets, Nets and Pistons are still negotiating, hammering out the final details of a proposed blockbuster trade, something the Denver Post and multiple other sources are reporting. The details could be finalized the first part of next week, after the Nuggets finish their road trip Sunday night. Then it all falls…

  19. Memphis may not blow it up after Conley extension

    Jan 15, 2011, 10:30 AM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Sacramento Kings

    As we mentioned Friday night, Chris Broussard of ESPN reported Friday night that the Nuggets are not interested in the deal the Knicks were trying to put together which would land them Carmelo Anthony, with O.J. Mayo going to Denver. It’s a major sigh of relief for Grizzlies fans who would have been doubly-screwed in such…

  20. Pistons say Rip benching had nothing to do with potential trade

    Jan 14, 2011, 5:05 PM EST

    Rip Hamilton

    According to the Detroit Pistons, Rip Hamilton watching the entirety of Wednesday’s game from the bench as his name was being tossed around in Carmelo Anthony trade rumors was a complete coincidence. Here’s the report, courtesy of Mlive.com’s Chris Iott: A Detroit Pistons source said Wednesday and repeated today that the benching of Detroit Pistons…

  21. Chris Bosh offers advice to Denver’s front office

    Jan 14, 2011, 2:38 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Miami Heat

    Last season, we all pretty much knew Chris Bosh was out of Toronto. He didn’t push for a trade and kept hinting he might re-sign, the Raptors in retrospect should have pushed him to sign and extension or get dealt, but they didn’t. Everyone just rode out the season. So his situation was not exactly…

  22. About that O.J. Mayo/Knicks rumor, Denver reportedly isn’t interested

    Jan 14, 2011, 12:49 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    This really should have been expected. The Knicks are scrounging around trying to insert themselves back into the Carmelo Anthony trade talks. They started talking with the Memphis Grizzlies to come up with a trade package that might include O.J. Mayo. And the Nets said “no thanks, not interested”, according to a tweet from Chris…

  23. Report: ‘Melo wants Nets to sell him on team, future

    Jan 14, 2011, 10:08 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony intro

    It remains the ultimate final hurdle for the complex three-team trade that many reports now say could be completed early next week, after the Nets finish their current road trip (the final game is Sunday in San Antonio): Will Anthony agree to a three-year, $65 million to play in New Jersey? He wants the Nets…

  24. Chris Andersen to sit for a week

    Jan 14, 2011, 8:12 AM EST

    Chris Andersen

    I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but amidst the ridiculous number of Carmelo Anthony trade rumors is an actual basketball team in Denver that’s still playing games now and again. They’re not bad, either, but apparently fall a bit short of Anthony’s expectations. Regardless, Chris Andersen — Birdman and the Nuggets’ energy big extraordinaire —…

  25. Nuggets, Nets, Pistons three-team ‘Melo trade talks heat up again

    Jan 14, 2011, 1:25 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony Smiles

    Two different reports have the much-discussed three-team trade that would have Carmelo Anthony landing in New Jersey heating up again. Those talks were moving very fast last weekend but reportedly lost momentum early this week when the Denver Nuggets pushed for the Nets to take on Al Harrington and his four-year, $28 million contract as…
