Melo trade

  1. Carmelo Anthony trade talks slowly picking up steam

    Feb 16, 2011, 10:53 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    Haven’t we — and all the parties involved — been talking about this since last summer? If so, how can things be dragging out so slowly now? But it is. Nothing has been quick or painless about the Carmelo Anthony trade situation. But now something is going to go down in the next week. It…

  2. Blazers GM: Carmelo Anthony trade holding up other deals

    Teams are talking trades. Not really seriously, however. We told you the other day that meaningful trade chatter was down this season and tried to present a few reasons — fear of the unknown of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement and teams not taking on any new salary because of it for one. All the…

  3. Carmelo Anthony trade updates: Don’t believe anybody

    Feb 15, 2011, 9:38 AM EDT

    carmelo anthony

    It’s at the point with the Carmelo Anthony trade drama to stop taking anything anybody says seriously. It’s all lies, spin and negotiation tactics. Any truth in comments from people involved in the trade is incidental to their motives. Look at Tuesday’s reports. The New York Daily News is saying the Knicks could make a…

  4. Expect Carmelo Anthony to play for the West at the All-Star Game

    Feb 14, 2011, 9:17 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    If Carmelo Anthony is traded to the Knicks or Nets (or any team in the East) before Sunday, he would play for the East in the All-Star Game. And then LaMarcus Aldridge would get his just reward. But don’t bet on it. You can expect Anthony to be with the Nuggets — and the Western…

  5. Nets, Nuggets still not talking about Carmelo Anthony again

    Feb 14, 2011, 5:09 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    When Mikhail Prokhorov pulled the Nets out of Carmelo Anthony chase, there were some around the NBA who said he was just acting and trying to come off as a bad ass at the negotiating table. He was trying to establish his presence and persona with a dramatic move. My thought: If you made $15…

  6. If not traded, ‘Melo says he’d consider signing with Denver after all. Right.

    Feb 9, 2011, 4:25 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Since day one of the ‘Melodrama, whenever Carmelo Anthony has been asked if he would sign with Denver he has said it was one of the options he would consider. That’s not what his people — the fine folks from CAA, for example — were saying privately to the Nuggets and everyone else. They said…

  7. Is Carmelo Anthony to Lakers rumor just to prod the Knicks?

    Feb 8, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT

    carmelo anthony

    Of course they feel that way. Suddenly reports coming of New York writers are saying that the Carmelo Anthony to the Lakers for Andrew Bynum rumors that sprung forth today are really about the Knicks. Because it’s always about you, New York, isn’t it? Always. First we have Alan Hahn at Newsday who writes: A…

  8. Minnesota likely to trade Corey Brewer, ‘Melo deal or not

    Feb 8, 2011, 4:13 PM EDT

    coreybrewer

    Corey Brewer is the latest in a long and proud line of players to have his name dragged into the Carmelo Anthony trade talks. Really, it’s almost a right of passage in the NBA at this point everyone has done it. Except that if this ‘Melo deal fall through, too, Brewer is still likely to…

  9. Three-team talks about Carmelo Anthony trade continue, Nuggets still dragging feet

    Feb 8, 2011, 11:06 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    UPDATE 11:06 am: In an effort to push the deal forward, Knicks owner James Dolan called Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke directly to negotiate a deal, according to the New York Daily News. According to a source familiar with the negotiations, Dolan’s decision to become more involved in the Anthony trade talks is a sign that…

  10. Report: Knicks sitting pretty in Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes

    Feb 5, 2011, 7:57 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    It’s good to be the Knicks right now. Sure on the court too, where they are the best they’ve been in a decade. But we were talking in the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes, where the Knicks appear to have all the winning numbers. A new report by Marc Spears of Yahoo confirms that. Several sources told…

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

    Feb 3, 2011, 12:48 PM EDT

    Image (1) mcuban_cheers-thumb-250x375-14764.jpg for post 2807

    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 —…

  12. Carmelo Anthony talks trade but says nothing. Again.

    Feb 1, 2011, 10:41 AM EDT

    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…

  13. George Karl thinks ‘Melo could be a Nugget all season

    Jan 31, 2011, 10:07 PM EDT

    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.…

  14. Chauncey Billups sticks up for “Pistons royalty” Rip Hamilton

    Jan 27, 2011, 8:57 AM EDT

    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…

  15. Carmelo Anthony has no idea what is going to happen

    Jan 26, 2011, 9:53 AM EDT

    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…

  16. Report: Nuggets may have interest in Anthony Randolph from Knicks. Really?

    Jan 25, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 21, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 21, 2011, 12:48 PM EDT

    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…

  19. Now what do Pistons do with Rip Hamilton?

    Jan 21, 2011, 11:21 AM EDT

    RHamilton_ejection

    For the past five games, Rip Hamilton has been watching his Detroit Pistons play and racking up DNP-CDs. He was being saved — Hamilton was the Pistons piece in the three-team Carmelo Anthony trade, a move that would have freed up some cap space for the Pistons. Then Mikhail Prokhorov pulled the rug out from…

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

    Jan 20, 2011, 2:09 AM EDT

    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…

  21. Now what for Carmelo Anthony? Denver?

    Jan 19, 2011, 8:43 PM EDT

    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.…

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

    Jan 19, 2011, 3:07 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 18, 2011, 9:48 PM EDT

    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…

  24. Detroit fans chant, “We want Rip”

    Jan 18, 2011, 11:19 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Rip Hamilton sat again Monday, a fourth consecutive DNP-CD on the scorecard (Did Not Play, Coach’s Decision). Some Pistons fans want none of it and started chanting “We want Rip” during the team’s victory over Dallas Monday, according to the Detroit News. Admittedly it wasn’t a huge roar, but at least some fans realize that…

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

    Jan 17, 2011, 5:10 PM EDT

    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…
