Wow.. The Knicks will only

Wow.. The Knicks will only lose Chandler, Curry, and Randolph? That's great for the Knicks, especially because Curry and Randolph aren't even playing. It's basically Chandler for Melo.

I dont like the deal for minny

giving up what might be the number one pick but you have to trust kahn, everyone thought gasol to the lakers was a steal and thier g.m was an idiot - turns out- not so much. if you cant understand it - it doesnt mean its stupid.

Minnesota gets to clear some

Minnesota gets to clear some cap space and frees up minutes for Johnson and Ellington.

Also have the Timberwolves re-signed Love or Beasley yet? If not, this deal makes more sense for them- they can re-sign there 2 core players!

I like this alot!

From a knicks view. I mean was Chandler Dano and Melo really all going to work any how. No they really just need a defensive center.

Minny is trying to put

Minny is trying to put together a team full of rejects.

- First considered bust, Michael Beasley

- Draft night trade, Kevin Love

- One of the biggest busts, Darko Milicic (even though he's doing well now)

- A guy who failed in the two easiest offensive systems, Anthony Randolph

- Pancake specialist, Eddy Curry

- College transfer, Wesley Johnson

- High School legend and NBA scrub, Sebastian Telfair

WoooooooooW

New York is 2 maybe 3 pieces away from contending out East.

Defensive Center- They have Turiaf but he is an energy guy like Birdman so he is better suited off the bench.

Player to get- Marcin Gortat or Robin Lopez PHX doesnt need them both. Trading Toney Douglas in the off season to PHX would be great. or Kelenna Azubuike's expiring contract this year would do wonders

Back up PG- I would use the 1st Rounder on Selby or Walker since 1 will probably fall to the mid to late 1st round.

Shooter/Defender- Mickael Pietrus is the perfect guy to put on this team as the energy man off the bench. He's fast as hell, can shoot, defend and jump. He knows the Magic, Heat and Celtics well and is a team player.

Possible rotation

Lopez-Stoudemire-Anthony-Fields-Felton

Gallinari(3/4)-Pietrus(2/3)-Walker(1/2)-Turiaf(5)-Williams(2/3)

This would be great

article from espn

Sources: Three-team deal discussed

By Chris Broussard
ESPN The Magazine
Archive

The Denver Nuggets and the New York Knicks are discussing a three-team trade that would make forward Carmelo Anthony a Knick before the Feb. 24 trade deadline, according to league sources.

Anthony
Anthony

In the proposed trade, New York would send Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry to Minnesota and the Timberwolves would send Corey Brewer and a first-round pick to Denver. Denver would also receive Wilson Chandler from New York.

The deal is not expected to happen until the middle of next week at the earliest, and one source said it could drag out until the trade deadline. Denver, which has been exchanging proposals with the Knicks for the past couple weeks, is weighing other options.

With teams aware of Anthony's desire to play in New York, the Nuggets' choices are limited. With little chance of signing Anthony long-term, few clubs are willing to send valuable assets to Denver.

If the trade with New York and Minnesota goes through, Anthony would be in line to receive a three-year, $65 million contract extension as part of the agreement in what is known as an extend-and-trade.

Since Anthony's preference to play for New York is known, there is some sentiment within the Knicks organization to hold off on trading for him and wait until he becomes a free agent this summer. Such a move would enable them to keep their young assets.

But owner James Dolan has been pressing team president Donnie Walsh to trade for Anthony before the deadline, according to sources.

"Dolan is really pressuring Walsh to get Melo, but Denver has been vacillating back and forth," one of the sources said.

A trade to New York would end the season-long saga that began last summer when Anthony refused to sign the contract extension with the Nuggets.

Late in the preseason, reports of a potential four-team deal with New Jersey, Utah and Charlotte that would make Anthony a Net surfaced.

But league sources say the deal was overblown and New Jersey was actually leaking the story in an effort to pressure Denver's new front office regime of Josh Kroenke and Masai Ujiri into making a deal.

Last month, reports of another potential trade of Anthony to New Jersey surfaced, this time involving the Detroit Pistons. That deal was close to being agreed upon, but Anthony was reluctant to sign the three-year, $65 million extension with New Jersey.

Anthony agreed to meet with the Nets but owner Mikhail Prokhorov called off his club's pursuit of Anthony in a news conference a day before the scheduled sit-down was to take place.

I don't see why Minny would do this deal. They're pretty much trading a lottery pick and athletic defender for another athletic defender.

being 12 mil under the cap wasnt enough?

to resign beasely and love? sorry I will admit I dont understand how resigning counts against the cap. I also dont understand why its in a teams best interest to re-sign with 2 years remaining versus 1.

i knew this was gonna happen

Ever since the Melo drama leaked out, I knew that Denver was gonna get the short end of the stick. In every report I heard about the Melo rumors, there was always that one line that basically said the knicks were his preffered destination. Yeah, there was NJ, but in the end the ball was in Melo's court, so if he wanted NY, he was gonna get it. I feel sorry for Denver, cause they would either have to trade for whatever NY had to offer , and Donnie Walsh is in no rush to trade for Melo, or risk losing Melo in free agency for one last playoff push, like the Cavs last year. Seeing what the Cavs have become (24 straight losses for a team that was a Number 1 seed last year), I think they had to trade. But I'll be sure to fill in Nuggets fans what they missing out on next year

Honestly at this point if I

Honestly at this point if I were the Nuggets I wouldn't do the sign and trade, but just trade him or let him go in FA. His openness about only signing for New York has hurt that team so much that if I was the owner I'd gladly screw him over millions, and pray the new CBA lowers salaries.

Chandler, Brewer and a first round pick is all Denver would get for Melo? Damn lol...

Them getting the short end of the stick is an understatement.

I'd let Melo walk too...

Hopefully they can work out a sign and trade deal with New York over the summer and get a trade exception for him in return. Similar to what Cleveland and Toronto did with LeBron/Bosh.

I know what minny is thinking kahns a genius

he has no plan to keep curry , currys contract is one of the largest expiring ones in the league. one of the teams paying luxury tax is going to get him. OR hmm lets think about this a sec at one time curry was a very productive player- min has actually done wonders at turning players careers around. they dont have a lot of depth at center and im sure curry will be paid a lot less. he might have just gotten a major bargain.

maybe ...

Minnesota is thinking that the top picks in the draft are playing the same possy as there core?

Flynn - PG

Love - PF/C

Johnson SF

Beasley SF/PF

they really need a C or SG and neither of these can be found with a top 5 pick this year... just a thought

how a player can have more leverage than a team......but as i heard chris webber say on nba.....he has a right to choose where he wants to go to work i guess.....he compared it to fed ex like if they wanted you to relocate and you wanted to work where your family was....

Just one of the small pleasantries these people have to give up to become instant millionairs, and live a life every one of us would kill to have. I show no pity for that excuse; these guys seem to forget how easy they have it sometimes.

Minny gets screwed hardcore with this deal

The Wolves don't need Randolph...it'd just create a logjam at the forward position. Love and Beasley need all the PT they can get, and that'd get screwed up with Randolph. Plus, the draft pick we'd give up would likely be a top 3 pick...Please, Kahn. Don't do this.

Yeah this deal makes no sense for Minny. They could lose out on Irving potentially with this deal. And yeah, the logjam isn't in anybody's best interests.

this deal isn't going to happen. makes no sense for minnesota.

also carmelo holds all the cards he wants and is going to play for new york. The more knicks have to trade away, the worse they will be next season.

The knicks can virtually give nothing and melo can sign as a free agent at end of the season, they really don't need to give away multiple draft picks and lots of good players like new jersey had to do

Minnesota's looking for a spark out of Randolph? Cap Space from Curry because... you know... they want to be cheap, especially with a lockout possible. I just think Minny's gonna ride the Love Train like the did the KG Express.. We've seen this before.

anyone who things

Anyone who thinks that the pick is going to be MN's own first round pick which is likely to be top 3, then you're crazy. Remember that they have Utah's pick and Charlotte's pick (top 14 protected), I think it will be one of the other two and probably Utah's because Denver is going to want picks ASAP. I would like to see some more players involved and somehow get Chandler to MN where he would play the 2 guard

Watching Minnesota fans

Watching Minnesota fans screaming for Kahn not to do something is becoming an all too familiar sight. For those who say this makes no sense for them - when has that stopped him?

Minnesota Timberwolves

Minnesota Timberwolves Basketball... building a contender... elsewhere.

Here you go Miami, we'll help take Michael Beasley off your hands to sign three superstars, Mike Miller, and UD. Enjoy basketball in June.

Here you go Utah, I know you just lost Carlos Boozer and Kyle Korver in free agency, but we have this guy Al Jefferson for you to help ease the pain. Picks... sure.

Here you go NY, just when you start to resembled the middling team you are, have Carmelo Anthony. You know that pick we just got from Utah, you can have that so long as we can get that guy who can't beat out Shawne Williams for minutes. You know what, we'll also throw in our best defender on a team with loads of guys with no interest in guarding anyone just to make sure it happens.

Seriously, this cannot be real. In as much as everyone knows my unending love of the potential of Anthony Randolph to frustrate the likes Don Nelson and Mike D'Antoni, a team cannot be that dysfunctional. This would trump the KG and Pau deals three-fold.

I will say this

Denver probably gets the most out of this. Even though Melo is gone, they patch up the hole rather nicely. And will have two first round picks. Nice.

It doesn't help Denver at

It doesn't help Denver at all. Wilson Chandler will be a restricted free agent after this year, and all he has showed is that he can put up a reasonable line in the D'Antoni system. The problem is inflated numbers get guys more money than they are worth, so getting him in a FA year does them little good. The pick will probably be that of the Jazz, which is not without value but is not going to net the superstar talent they need when losing Melo. Brewer isn't awful, but he is another restricted free agent after the year. The Nuggets would still be carrying four years and $28 million for Al Harrington and three years and $14 million for the Birdman. Then again, for all we know the Wolves will throw in another first for the Free Bird. What happens with Nene and Billups after the year? Nene can opt out and there would be little reason to keep Billups on a team without Melo and Nene. Also, they are only 3 1/2 up on Memphis, 5 on Phoenix, and 6 on Houston. It isn't crazy to think even with the lead built up that they could miss the playoffs and lose out on the playoff gate. Considering how little they get back, they might as well wait on Melo for the next CBA to come out and see if that plays to their favor. They aren't getting more than Toronto or Cleveland got in the Bosh and LeBron sign-and-trades.

My opinion on all 3

My opinion on all 3 teams

Minnesota: Eddy Curry's 12 million dollar deal and Anthony Randolph's potential are for them? I think the T-Wolves are slowly becoming the island of misfit toys (besides K-Love). Like a poster said above, they will keep that top 3 pick and probably grab Harrison Barnes and you add that to Beasley, Love, Flynn and Randolph...you can only hope they improve. I also think people are sleeping on Rubio's value, the man is still worth 2 1st round picks I believe. Remember: One correct draft pick and we could be talking about Minnesota as a up and coming team.

Denver: Chandler, Brewer and a 1st? WOW. If I'm Denver, you know what time it is? TANKING TIME! If I'm Denver, I'm moving Billups, Nene and Birdman. Let me get 60 cents for a dollar on most of those players. Like I said, Denver failed to me because now instead of a potential top 7 pick, your gonna get a 10-14 pick if you tank now. I also believe you test Arron Affalo's trade value, but I would keep him. I will say this: A Chandler-Affalo combo would be good, not as good as Carmelo, but good in the sense.

Here's the 2 deals for Denver if you do this deal

Billups, Ely for Thompson, Landry and Dalembert

Nene for Green, Peterson and maybe see about Aldrich?

Right now, these trades are tough but once FA comes around and you see who's leaving, I think you can move all the incoming pieces around. Make the team young and exciting knowing moving Melo means your losing 50 games next season.

New York: The Knicks get Carmelo Anthony for the 2nd half playoff run. What else you want me to say?

IMO the best option is to just wait for the summer. You pay Melo wayyy less then you would next year and prob have money left over. The Knicks are a playoff team without him and with him they dont win the title this year. If the deal gets done he gets the big extension and with the New cba chances are very high they won't be able to add anymore players because they wont have the money

I agree. I want to do this: Move Randolph for a 1st round pick and then sign Carmelo in the offseason

I know that's a little bit greedy, but man...imagine the Knicks getting Carmelo with Jordan Hamilton and Kenneth Faried in a offseason? Man, I'd be super happy.

Than makes perfect sense.

Than makes perfect sense. Before the season started i would say make this trade but the Knicks have shown to be a playoff team without him so why not wait till the off season. Once the season gets close to the end start playing Randolph more to show case him for a off season trade. Force feed him to make him look better then he is and hope a team decides to give up something big for him

I think both Portland and

I think both Portland and Indiana are ready to give up 1st rounders for him. Portland more then Indy because they have New Orleans' 1st, which could be late.

I'm still contending that NY is a playoff team, but man do we need to open up the rotation. Randolph has lost all confidence on offense, but he's still a good rebounder and not a bad defender on the perimeter. Mozgov has been a breath of fresh air and could actually start for NY now that he's been practicing against the Stoudemire's and Turiaf's every day.

You Know What

If I was Denver I'd ask for Landry Fields instead of Wilson Chandler as Fields has shown he a high IQ player and not a product of a system like Chandler. Denver could then send JR Smith to Minny they need a 2Guard and he might get some of what Beasley got in Minny.

Lawson-Fields-Afflalo-Brewer and 2 1st rounders this year is a good way at starting fresh they also have more tradable assets to get more talent

Nene to OKC for Green/Peterson/Krstic

Billups and Andersen to Orlando for Nelson and Bass

Martin's deal will expire giving them a lot of cap room to go along with this young core

Nelson-Afflalo-Green-Bass-Fields-Brewer-Lawson-2 1st-CAP Room
