Melo

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

    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…

  2. Just to reiterate, ‘Melo is not returning to Denver

    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…

  3. Carmelo Anthony tells Michael Jordan, Bobcats “no thanks”

    The Bobcats are a struggling franchise. On the court and at the gate. Something or someone needs to change that. Someone like Carmelo Anthony. Bobcats owner Michael Jordan reached out to Melo and his people before contacting the Nuggets and throwing his hat in the ring of the Anthony sweepstakes, only to be told no…

  4. Rockets not looking for picks, they want to trade for an All-Star

    Dec 30, 2010, 1:19 PM EDT

    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…

  5. Report: Contending teams consider “renting” Carmelo Anthony for season

    Dec 21, 2010, 4:18 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Much of the focus on Carmelo Anthony’s trade prospects has centered on whether Anthony would sign a contract extension to play wherever he was sent. But what if a contending team was willing to trade for him without caring about an extension? That is apparently happening (well, that or it’s a negotiating tactic). Sources told…

  6. The Carmelo Anthony trade rumor wheel goes around and around and….

    Dec 21, 2010, 11:44 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Just how confusing and circular is the Carmelo Anthony trade situation? Take the two very different stories that broke Tuesday. On one hand you have Yahoo’s trade rumor machine Adrian Wojnarowski saying that the Nets and Nuggets are working on a complex multi-team deal which would bring Anthony and some other quality talent to the…

  7. Dallas “touches base” with Denver about Melo, but reality says no way

    Dec 15, 2010, 2:53 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    We’re not telling you about this because it is likely to happen — you’re more likely to read a headline that says “President Obama, Rush Limbaugh now BFFs” — but rather to show just how widespread the interest in Carmelo Anthony is around the league. The Dallas Mavericks have “continued to touch base” with the…

  8. Carmelo Anthony denies he gave Denver an ultimatum (let’s have an argument)

    Dec 13, 2010, 11:26 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    This whole Carmelo Anthony trade thing is starting to sound like a Monty Python skit. No it isn’t. Yes it is. No it isn’t. Yes it is. Isn’t. Is. Two days ago came the report that Anthony would only sign an extension with the New York Knicks. Then today another report said the Nets and…

  9. Report: Melo will only sign extension if traded to New York

    Dec 12, 2010, 5:43 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Chris Sheridan of ESPN New York is reporting that Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony has informed his team he will only sign his extension if he is traded to the New York Knicks. Baboom. CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger has sources disputing the report that Melo has informed Denver, but confirms the decision: Melo will not re-sign…

  10. Are the Nuggets delaying a ‘Melo trade to improve draft pick?

    Nov 26, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated put out a Carmelo Anthony trade theory via twitter on Friday: Interesting ‘Melo theory floated at me by a couple execs this week. Nets want Melo. DEN wants Nets package of Favors, Murphy, picks. But DEN thinking if they trade Melo now, that NJN pick becomes worse when Melo makes…

  11. Vecsey says Carmelo Anthony wants to win now, play for Knicks. We’re confused, too.

    Nov 16, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    The conflict in what Carmelo Anthony says he wants is right out there in the open after the latest report: Find a way to make the Nuggets the best team in the West this season — so trade for a big asset without trading anything away — or trade me to the Knicks so I…

  12. Carmelo Anthony sounds happy in Denver. Right now.

    Nov 8, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    CAnthony_miss

    The Nuggets are playing well — they are right in the mix on the second tier in the west with the Hornets and Spurs. They are 4-2, that with Chauncey Billups struggling with his shot and basically the entire front line injured. So how does that affect Carmelo Anthony’s desire to leave? Hard to say,…

  13. Stoudemire tells teammates to forget about ‘Melo

    Oct 22, 2010, 10:05 AM EDT

    Stoudemire_knicks

    Amar’e Stoudemire went Rick Pitino yesterday. He told his team that Carmelo Anthony is not walking through that door. Chris Paul is not walking through that door. He used different words, but that was the sentiment. His sentiment may or may not be true a couple months from now, but is true about the season…

  14. Report: Nuggets find market drying up for huge Carmelo Anthony deal

    Oct 6, 2010, 10:40 PM EDT

    The Nuggets are asking a lot for Carmelo Anthony in a trade: good young players and draft picks for the future, enough established talent to keep them in the playoffs now, plus cap relief that keeps them below the luxury tax. And a date with Scarlett Johansson. And a DeLorean that can travel through time.…

  15. Carmelo Anthony better get used to the boos

    Oct 2, 2010, 7:04 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony went to an MMA event in suburban Denver the other night, according to Chris Tommason at FanHouse. As they do at just about every sporting event — including NBA games in some cities — the celebrities in the crowd get shown on the big screen. Anthony’s picture went up. The crowd booed. Anthony…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. Winderman: Jared Jeffries salary dump reason Knicks are out of Anthony sweepstakes

    Sep 21, 2010, 11:31 AM EDT

    It is one thing to mortgage your future after the fact. The Heat did that with the Cavaliers and Raptors in the sign-and-trades utilized to increase the payouts to LeBron James and Chris Bosh. For most of the next decade, draft night will remain rumor in South Florida. It is, however, another thing to mortgage…
