    Never happen... They do not want what we have for Melo alone never mind adding in Billups...

    ^^ ya, but when Melo goes Billups loses his value to them. He's too old and his game is built to be icing playoff games.

    They likely trade Billups after Melo leaves. This satisfies it in a fell swoop.

    And Felton is perfect for them since he's young but still is and can be a leader.

    I think that's a really good, at least interesting trade.

    I don't like it for us if anything.

    Versus the more typical Melo for ______ trade ideas floating around.

    Also we would have to match salary or add a third team. Billups makes 10mil Plus I think. I still want to hold off , if we miss the boat we miss it.

    Gives us another rival and gives us the money to add role players to this core.

    Gallo
    Stoudemire
    Felton
    Fields


    About 15 mil in cap after the off season to add role players... then you resign Wilson Chandler with his bird rights.

    We receive

    Billups 13.5 mil (4 mil buyout for next year contract)
    melo 17.1 mil
    Balkman 1.7 mil

    32.3 mil

    Thet get

    First rounder/ AR and future
    second rounders
    Felton 7.5
    Gallo 3.3
    Azzy 3.4
    Curry 11.3
    Fields .5 mil

    26 mil cash

    salaries dont have match exactly like 80%..might have to use AR to Denver first and then he flip to another team for the first rounder to make the number work

    we would have

    Billups
    Walker
    Melo
    Amare
    Turiaf

    that would be our starting 5 rest of season

    JULY

    Stat 18.2
    turiaf (PO) 4.3 mil
    Melo 18.5 mil
    Tmoz 2.6 mil
    Tdoug 1.1 mil
    Walker .9 mil
    rautins .8 mil
    Balkman 1.7 mil

    48 mil with about 10+ mil for a big


    we would have a hole at PG because we would have to buy out Billups

    if we keep billups we could use the mid level exception for a big and keep chandler and have salary cap relief for 2012

    not the best scenario but somethin Denver would want
