    Trade Icon Trade Idea that is so crazy, it just might work!

    Ok here we go.

    Philadelphia wants to unload Andre Igudala. He has a Gianormus Contract that he isnt worth but he is still a Decent player.

    Philly needs Cap Room, Young talent, a pick or two.

    Denver needs something in return to keep there fans happy, plus cap space and young talent.

    New York needs Melo.


    Now I have worked out a trade where everything works. The numbers, whos going where, Everything.

    Philadelphia 76ers recieve
    Anthony Randolph
    Eddy Curry
    Arron Affalo
    2011 second round pick from Boston
    2012 second round pick from New York

    Denver Nuggets recieve
    Andre Iguodala
    Marreese Speights
    Danilo Gallinari
    2014 1st round pick from Knicks
    2011 second round pick from Golden State

    New York Knicks recieve
    Carmelo Anthony


    And on the ESPN trade machine the trade works!
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    The trade will give Philly cap room and Draft picks, plus a young talent, It will give Denver Young Talent, an up and coming star, and Draft Picks, and it will give us Carmelo!


    Giving us a nice lineup of

    PG: Raymond Felton
    SG: Landry Fields
    SF: Carmelo Anthony
    PF: Amare Stoudemire
    C: Ronny Turiaf

    OR if we go small

    PG: Raymond Felton
    SG: Landry Fields
    SF: Carmelo Anthony
    PF: Wilson Chandler
    C: Amare Stoudemire

    Denver doesn't want Iggy, Deng, or Gilbert Grape because of their contracts tho. There's no reason to hamstring your team with bad contracts when you're going to be rebuilding AND the new CBA might call for a lower salary cap.

    Harrington is already enough of a bad contract for them to deal with, I don't see them taking on another.

    Its retadred, I know, but its a known fact they are very much intrested in Iggy. But the problem is Melo doesnt want to go to Philly.

    I keep on hearing that they're interested in Iggy but the only formal trade that was ever offered was the huge one with Denver, NJ, Charlotte, and Utah. Once again the Nets being involved.

    Denver had a deal in place to send Melo to the Nets and tried to get him to sign the extension for NJ. If Denver were interested in Iggy, and Philly is trying to move Iggy, where's the trade proposal followed by Denver trying to get Melo to sign the extension for Philly?

    I keep reading online that Denver wants Iggy and his huge contract, but as far as I can tell, they haven't even looked Philly's way. They've been locked in on NJ for a while now.

    The only reason I think they would want him is to sell jerseys. Other then that it doesnt make any sense...

    I think if we can find a team thats over the cap with young talent who wants to get under the cap, we use our expiring contracts to trade to the for Picks and young talent, and trade that to Denver for Melo.

    Oh by the way anyone remember that Nuggets forum some of us went to to suggest Trade Ideas for Melo? I suggested this to them and they banned me.

    I think when everything is all said and done, the Nuggets will trade Carmelo Anthony for Brandon Roy.

    If they're rebuilding we know exactly what they want. Cheap talent, draft picks, and cap room.

    They might be posturing to try to squeeze a better deal out of someone (dunno why tho since Melo holds all the power to single handedly veto any trade) but we can assume Denver wants cap space and picks. Not another contract that will force them to have to make more trades to free up cap space. That's going backwards.

    I still don't don't believe Denver has any interest in Iggy, I could be wrong, but this past summer taught me to believe it when I see it in the NBA. Not only because of LeJizz Stain, but also because of how "according to sources" the Knicks could get shut out of the FA blitz....only to end up being the first team to land a big name unrestricted FA. So if these same "sources" are telling us that Denver is going against all conventional wisdom and are gonna take on one of the league's worst contracts in a deal for their franchise player...I'm gonna call bull****.
