    No thanks. Don't wanna give up Gallo.

    Melo also has one year left on his contract. You never know if him wanting to play for New York could mean Brooklyn.

    You guys are nuts if you wouldn't signed off for Curry, Gallo, and a pick... Thats a very fair deal. We keep all the golden state guys, chandler, and douglas.

    Gallo could be very good but Melo is great right now. I personally think we'd have to give up more to get him.

    The Nets will NEVER, NEVER have the fan base nor the appeal, so I am not worried about the damn Nets. That trade, IMO, is worth it. I think Randolph is worth keeping due to his tremendous upside. I wonder if we can change that first rounder for two 2nd rounders.

    I know nothing is official yet. it's all talk. And I suspect Melo will be a Denver Nuggets' player at the beginning of the season.

    The Knicks are reportedly willing to trade Danilo Gallinari as the centerpiece of a package to acquire Carmelo Anthony.

    During his Tuesday show on ESPN Radio in New York, Michael Kay cited sources in reporting that the Knicks will offer Gallinari, a future first-round pick and Eddy Curry in a bid to acquire Carmelo Anthony from Denver.

    Curry's contract would be needed to work to make the trade work under the salary cap.

    I'm sure Donnie doesnt want to give up Gallo neither but you gotta give some to get some.

    Im just gonna pray that we can have both Gallo and Melo. We need shooters. Gallo is a shooter.

    We don't have to give up anything. We can sign him next summer.

    And you're right. We need shooters. If we give up Gallo for Melo, we will be an awful shooting team in a system that depends on shooting.

    I'm also not convinced Melo and Amare would compliment each other very well. Both players do not pass very well and will dominate the ball in a system that also demands ball movement.

    But on the other hand, this is a fair deal and gives us that 2nd superstar. So I guess you have to do it. I'm just disappointed in seeing this team dismantled before we even get a chance to watch them play. I was really excited to see this team run.

    Not trading a homegrown talent for a player who will be a FA.

    Quite possible that while Melo does want NYK and is willing to apply some pressure to get it done (ie --a-- deal), he isn't going to go all out, totally spurn any talk of extension, and actually strong-arm a feel on our behalf.

    Hence we need to still give to get, and close out all possibility that Melo doesn't come as a FA.

    Thos reminds me of when the Yankees traded Soriano for Arod. Gallo younger, Soriano more proven, but pretty similar especially in how it was/is perceived by fans.

    I'd pull trigger.

    No more talk of us on the rise. Let's be up and still rise more.

    Depending on AR-47 being a keeper, we spend next FA or two looking to bring in a stud 2 (maybe a 1).

    "long"term

    Felton
    ? (any chance Parker would play the 2 lol...)
    Melo
    Amare
    AR-47

    Douglas, Walker, Jordan, Moz off bench

    That's a laughable offer, 2014 before Denver sees that pick so it practically has zero value. Any mention of Curry in a package is doing the Knicks a favor and probably wouldn't interest Denver except in a salary dump. So it's basically Gallo for Melo, are u kidding me. If the Knicks are serious they have to include Randolph or Chandler at a minimum or Stat in a straight up deal.

    Throw in Chandler in that package. I think the Knicks are starting low first to test waters. There is no way you trade Gallo and Randolph. No Way!! I would just wait it out and fight for the Melo sweepstakes next year, if that is the case.

    we gotta do this trade if the nuggets accept...

    and heres why... if melo gets traded to a team and they go far in the playoffs he will sign an extension with that team and willnot be a free agent next year.. he wants the extension just doesnt want it in denver... we cant take that risk... all we know is gallo can turn out to be another marco belini..

    FYI: Melo is a pretty good passer.
