    Default Melo - Ny Or Nothing

    N.Y. or bust for ‘Melo?
    Carmelo Anthony

    Several sources told Yahoo! Sports that Carmelo Anthony’s agent, Leon Rose, has recently begun informing teams that the All-Star forward is interested in signing a contract extension with only the New York Knicks. The stance has weakened the Denver Nuggets’ leverage in trying to deal Anthony, not only to other teams, but also the Knicks.

    The sources said the Knicks don’t feel pressed to present a substantial trade offer to the Nuggets because they think they can also sign Anthony after the season if he opts out of his contract, as expected.

    “If you’re New York, you just sit and wait until the offseason,” one general manager said. “That’s where it’s likely to go. Why give up assets to get him now when you can wait and get him next season?”

    Said another source: “If ’Melo is telling the world he wants to go [to New York], why fight so hard to get him? [Knicks president] Donnie Walsh knows this.”

    Though there’s less than three weeks before the Feb. 24 trade deadline, a deal for Anthony isn’t imminent. Sources said the Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks still have interest in Anthony despite knowing he doesn’t plan to re-sign with them.

    “Don’t blame ’Melo. He’s been up front about wanting to go to New York since the summer,” one source close to the talks said. “They better trade him to New York or end up with nothing.

    I smell a 3 team trade to go down. bye bye randolph.....

    If it did get to the point where it was 100% inevitable that Melo would be a Knick at the end of the season. Don't you think the Knicks would trade Wilson Chandler right now for whatever they can get. Maybe move up in the draft. I think he would fit perfectly with the Clippers.

    Chandler + Knicks 1st round pick (~18) for Clippers pick (~7-10). Maybe get a chance at getting Enes Kanter.

    I like your idea and honestly I could see them adding Telfair for Walker just because they might need a SG to replace Brewer (I am not sure on this because I never really watch the Timberwolves play). Telfair is a pass first PG from what I hear and could definitely play back up to Felton. So in one trade we will fix some major holes in our rotation and I wouldn't be surprised if we bring back our other big from europe once the trade deadline is over to add depth to our big line up.

    Look all I'm saying is these articles are all the same... the sources could be the guy on the corner who sells hot dogs... I'm not saying that I don't appreciate the time you took to post this article... but if you are going to post an article how about posting one we haven't seen before in some variation... this just makes repetitive threads and ppl posting the same responses. No one really learned anything from this...

    If we have learned a lesson from the Lebron circus it's not to get to into these articles and sources that are so sure... The news is a business and they have to sell a story but we don't have to talk about EVERY single one that comes out... If there was an interview with Melo and his agent they would probably both deny this (although it could very well be true).

    Sorry if I'm of the mindset of other fans here. We really don't need 17 + Melo to NY threads running simultaneously do we?


    Love the avatar photo btw.

    if you read closely, this is the first article saying the the agent of melo is informing other teams that melo will only sign an extension with the knicks. there was always speculation, but i felt this confirmed it. so to me, it is different. i dont know about you, but what lesson have we learned? were you that hurt when lebron chose miami?

    we have been saying as fans, why dont we just wait. the article then gives new information that our club is not feeling any pressure to sell the farm.

    it also gives comments from other gm's around the nba.

    my source is yahoo.com on this article.

    if your not following closely, you wont pick up the 'nuggets' in the post.

    I'm kind of glad players are finally doing this in the NBA.

    Every other industry is free market. You can get fired/hired as you please. If you don't like your situation you can opt out of your employment contract.
    Why should the NBA be any different.

    Either this is true or we were fleeced by the usual made up "sources" tactic.
