    Default LOL what the Nuggets want for MELO LOL

    As @KenBerg_CBS writes, NJ frustrated with Denver's price for Melo. DEN wants 5 first round picks as part of bigger package, sources tell Y! Another problem for NJ, rival exec in talks says: In current multi-team discussions, NJ would give up Devin Harris w/o getting a PG back. Talks stopped over Christmas with tragic death of 'Melo's sister, but will resume next week. Josh Kroenke and Masai Ujiri are digging in.

    Exactly RT @ChrisMannixSI: There has been more posturing from both sides on Anthony than any deal in recent memory. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    In view of their frustration, the Nets have not yet gotten to the point where they're ready to pull all their chips off the table. But it's clear that the Nets are "sick of the whole charade," according to one source and have "backed away," according to another. </td> </tr> </tbody></table>

    LOL WOW, they want FIVE first round picks?? And on top of that they want a veteran player, an expiring AND a good young player. So my guess is Denver's proposed trade is something along the lines of this: Devin Harris, Derrick Favors, Troy Murphy, 4-5 first round draft picks for Carmelo Anthony + filler. Yeah...good luck with that.

    This isn't different than what they've been asking for all along. The 5 first rounders is crazy but other than that, nothing new.

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm looking forward to Denver getting "Boshed" at the end of the season.

    Melo is a good player but even 3 First Rounders (NJ may have a #1 with their record) Thats insane....Walsh, sign Chandler at years end, and lets build like the old days. Trade here and there and draft picks. Melo isn't worth close to that

    i really am starting to think this whole thing is bluffing on Denvers part. They know Melo won't sign the extension anyplace he doesn't want to go (NY) but if they say that they cannot get anything worthwhile from the knicks (IE three players and Curry's contract). So they're trying to stall and hope something happens that makes us give more than we should.

    Examples of this would be a long losing streak or Amare getting injured.

    Denver is also staying open to see if anyone will pay decently for a rental before the trade deadline. That I think is what they're really banking on maybe getting some decent players by the deadline. They can't say that either because they would get low balled on that deal as well. But honestly everything they're saying is to stall. I am just surprised the Nets are involved in this and haven't figured it out. I mean they might be willing to rent but that would make them look real stupid regardless of what they gave if he went to their future crosstown rivals during the post season.

    However Denver knows they can't get what Melo is worth in a trade because its a contract year and Melo seems to only want to play for a future contender.

    The only reason why the Denver Nuggets want five number one picks is because they want three of those picks to turn into the next Lebron, Wade and Bosh.

    It's all a bunch of bull****, no matter how retardedly annoying and tackless brokeg speaks...

    point is, melo is not even NEEDED by us...He's so inefficient, with such average defense, that his rebouding prowess is fkn pointless.

    If I hadda go after melo, I'd give up gallo and douglas and ar4 at the max...do with them what they want, but i dont care - no way am i giving a guy who can just leave the team in a few months for free....lols

    Actually i am not sure about the Mav's just because they are winning for the most part and will be a high seed in the west. I am thinking a mid-level low seed team would be more willing to do it. Cuban is crazy but dude wants to win. Adding melo late into the season might ruin the whole thing they got going especially if he is playing disgruntled because he didn't want to be traded to them.

    LOL.

    Trade deadline will pass, nobody will trade for him and Denver, because they were foolish enough to ask for too much, is going to let him walk away for NOTHING.

    And nobody will hate Carmelo for it because when he promised the fans in Denver he wouldn't let them leave with nothing, that's all he COULD do.

    The asking price for Melo is going to be high for New Jersey because Denver knows of all the teams in play for Melo no one needs him as bad as New Jersey!

    think about last year when we had to give up a pick plus potentially swap a pick just to get Jared Jefferies off the books, Houston knew how important it was for us to get as far under the cap as possible so they asked for a lot from us.

    So Denver is now doing the same to New Jersey, they know that New Jersey doesnt want this thing to spill into the off season because then it becomes the Knicks to lose, so if they want to get a deal done now, it is going to cost them.

    Look I hate The Nets (mostly their arrogant owner)....but if they were smart they should give up on this whole Melo thing! Its really not worth it

    This reminds me of the Hershel Walker trade... Not sure if you guys remember that but that trade made Dallas what they were in the 90s so.. If any team is dumb enough to make a trade than good luck... Hopefully Walsh will not wait until the trade deadline when all the other quality guys have already been moved. If I am Walsh, I wait another week or 2 then I start to look at other players; if Melo is there this off season then I will sign him.
