Melo

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

    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 —…

  2. 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…

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

    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.…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. Kobe Bryant on Denver fans booing ‘Melo: “That’s stupid”

    Jan 20, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    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…

  8. Knicks may get ‘Melo, but don’t expect it via free agency

    Jan 20, 2011, 1:55 PM EDT

    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…

  9. 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…

  10. Winderman: Welcome to ‘Melodrama, Part II

    Jan 19, 2011, 11:09 PM EDT

    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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

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

    Jan 17, 2011, 4:18 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 15, 2011, 7:32 PM EDT

    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…

  16. ‘Melo calls New York the “ultimate dream.” Doesn’t say Brooklyn or Manhattan.

    Jan 14, 2011, 11:15 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    This much has always been clear — Carmelo Anthony wants to play in New York, to come back home to the city he grew up in. He echoed that again to ESPN Friday. “That’s like the ultimate dream at the end of the day,” Anthony said. “Who wouldn’t want to go back home to play?”…

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

    Jan 14, 2011, 12:49 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 14, 2011, 1:25 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 12, 2011, 11:21 AM EDT

    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…

  20. Report: Amar’e Stoudemire reaches out to Carmelo Anthony

    Jan 12, 2011, 8:52 AM EDT

    FIBA Semifinals: USA v Puerto Rico

    The New York Knicks and their fans have not given up hope that by March, Carmelo Anthony will be wearing the blue and orange, talking to Spike Lee during warmups and running the floor with Amar’e Stoudemire. Stoudemire wants that too, and he read the quotes earlier this week when Anthony suggested the Knicks may…

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

    Jan 11, 2011, 4:41 PM EDT

    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…

  22. Chauncey Billups could play on moon, prefers Denver

    Jan 11, 2011, 3:52 PM EDT

    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…

  23. Melo trade update: Denver slows pace down, Harrington still stumbling block

    Jan 11, 2011, 7:50 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony intro

    Sunday evening into Monday there seemed to be more leaks around the Carmelo Anthony-to-the-Nets trade talks than there were on the Titanic. That, and pressure from the Nets (and others) to make it happen fast, gave the impression the entire trade was just about to go down. Turns out, not so much. In the past…

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

    Jan 10, 2011, 4:31 PM EDT

    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).…

  25. Camelo Anthony says trade is not imminent

    Jan 10, 2011, 2:10 AM EDT

    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…
