Well

Melo says "he wants to content for the title..how the heck is going to the nets gonna make him win a title..Knicks i would understand but the east is full of good teams.

I wish he had thought of staying at west and try taking away the lakers!!

We know what melo could do..he obiously very very good but i always felt going to east is making a bad move with the magic, heat, celtics, bulls etc.

But west is much more easier i would think and actually having a chance vs an east team.

Lakers are the only team in his way, east is a much more scarier place for melo!

I'll answer them.... When

I'll answer them....

When they trade Melo, what happens?? He's no longer a member of the Nuggets

Does Billups get traded immediatly after? He's involved in the NJ deal

Do they try to start Smith now so that they have a scoring punch in the starting lineup?? Probably not

Do they start Smith and Aflallo together or Forbes, Smith or Forbes, Aflallo? Affalo and whoever they get back in the deal

Does Nene get traded or become the go to?? He doesn't get traded

What about Harrington???? They want him in the NJ deal if not....probably remains in Denver

When they trade Melo, what happens?? he will be traded to the nets and hopefully become a contender in upcoming years.

Does Billups get traded immediatly after? Its stated he's in the trade but rumored to want a buyout or contract extension with nets. I think he plays remainder of season with nets and resigns with denver(he stated he wants to retire a nugget)

Do they try to start Smith now so that they have a scoring punch in the starting lineup?? I heard the mavs are interested in him so he might get traded if not I think he might start

Do they start Smith and Aflallo together or Forbes, Smith or Forbes, Aflallo? I would do smith and forbes togather with aflallo off of bench

Does Nene get traded or become the go to?? They might try to trade him because of contract to get younger players or a draft pick. they are goin to rebuild if melo is traded

What about Harrington???? I think he stays because he contract is long term and no one would accept it unless he is involved in nets trade

When they trade Melo, what

When they trade Melo, what happens??

The Nets (if it is indeed Melo's destination) will become a power in the East in 2 yrs. The Nets will move to NY (Brooklyn) and Melo could attract top Free Agents to join the team. I believe the Nets are trying to acquire Melo for long term future. As for the Nuggets, they become a lottery team and a team that automatically goes on rebuilding mode. People forget how awful the Nuggets were before Melo got there, they were basically what Minnesota is now, Melo practically changed their losing culture.

Does Billups get traded immediatly after?

Isnt Billups part of the package deal with Melo? If he isn't, the I'm sure he will be traded as well to a different team. If the Nuggets acquire Devin Harris, that would give the Nuggets Harris, Billups and Lawson as their PG. One of them would have to go and I'm betting it would be Billups.

Do they try to start Smith now so that they have a scoring punch in the starting lineup??

JR Smith would have to start by default to provide scoring.

Do they start Smith and Aflallo together or Forbes, Smith or Forbes, Aflallo?

Smith and Aflalo will start together. Although I can also see them trading Aflalo if they go in rebuilding mode. Aflalo will be a restricted FA and I don't think Nuggets would resign him, Aflalo is a nice piece for a contending team but has limited upside, so I believe if Melo is gone, I could see a domino effect with Aflalo and Billups being traded.

Does Nene get traded or become the go to??

I don't think Nene goes anywhere. He stays put. Although Orlando is a contending team that is seeking for a back up Center, if a package is enticing enough, I could see Denver going for it.

What about Harrington ??

Al Harrington could help a contending team that needs scoring punch off the bench and Harrington is not ion the nuggets' long-term plan, so him being traded is a strong possibility.
