Thunder get Carmelo Anthony
Knicks get Enes Kanter, Cameron Payne, Andre Roberson, and 2017 OKC 1st
Pf. D. Sabonis/ J. Grant
Sf. C. Anthony/ A. Abrines
C. S. Adams/ J. Leveargne
Sg. V. Oladipo/ A. Morrow
Pg. R. Westbrook/ S. Christon
19 Jan 2017 00:50:14
No thanks from OKC
19 Jan 2017 02:23:08
If okc wants to contend with superteams, they need a legit 2nd scoring option. Oladipo is a good 3rd option but not 2nd.
19 Jan 2017 02:53:19
That's a pretty interesting trade proposal if you're the Thunder. Pairing Carmelo with Westbrook would be interesting.
19 Jan 2017 06:43:18
You think Carmelo would be willing to accept that Westbrook is the #1 option? And also OKC can not trade their 2017 1st so make it a future 2nd
19 Jan 2017 07:34:02
melo has a no trade clause. And Lala is NOT moving to Oklahoma City
19 Jan 2017 00:00:24
Boston trades: Marcus Smart, Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson, and Nets 2018 1st round pick.
New York trades: Carmelo Anthony, Justin Holiday, and Kyle O'Quinn and 2017 2nd round pick.
19 Jan 2017 00:18:38
If Danny Ainge made that deal he could be charged with malpractice. Boston gives away two starters, their top sub and the potential No. 1 draft pick for a bunch of Knick garbage. No thanks.
19 Jan 2017 07:31:27
Okay then take the picks away, but I don't see Phil Jackson making a deal if he can't pry one of those 1st rounders away, and it's not the 2017 pick which is guaranteed to be top 5 at this point, and stay that way. The new roster would compete with Cleveland in the East, and they can still make another trade possibly. Kyle O'Quinn has a great contract, but perhaps a better deal can be made for Boston, maybe Rozier instead of Smart, but if the 1st rounder isn't on the table than you have to give up some decent starting caliber players to acquire a superstar rental. One way or another these teams can easily get a deal done.
5: Zeller; O'Quinn; Olynyk
4: Horford; Jerebko; Mickey
3: Carmelo; Brown
2: Bradley; Holiday; Young
1: Thomas; Rozier; Jackson
19 Jan 2017 09:54:36
Worst trade ever posted here. Believe it or not, other than KP, the only Knicks player who might have any trade value at all is O'Quinn. The Knicks would have to attach first rounders to Carmelo in order to convince someone to take his contract. He's no good anymore. Rose is broken. Noah is overpaid and got old in about 6 months.
18 Jan 2017 20:57:31
Clippers get Carmelo Anthony and Kyle O'Quinn
Knicks get DeAndre Jordan and Luc Mbah a moute
18 Jan 2017 21:14:36
Woah no where close. Melo doesn't bring that value at all.
18 Jan 2017 21:33:39
If Doc Rivers the general manager ever made that deal, Doc Rivers the coach would quit in protest.
18 Jan 2017 23:02:08
I know the clippers say no, but also don't think it's that off. Debased is a special talent, there are not many players like him in the league.... part of that is due to a lack of need of players like him. Any team would much rather choose a Dominant SF who can play multiple positions over a dominant C who can only play that one position. Jordan is less than 4 years younger than Melo. That makes a difference, but not as much as you always seem to imply. You two, think Melo is going to curl up into a ball and die any one of these games. HE CAN STILL PLAY. I don't like him, but please stop with the Melo hating. Also Oquinn is a good player and you completely disregarded him, is he enough to flip the deal, nah, but he still deserves some conversation.
18 Jan 2017 19:11:16
Realistic trade for the Knicks and melo and melo will agree.
Knicks and cavs.
Knicks trade Melo and rose
Cavs trade shumpert, Jr smith and thristan Thompson.
Knicks get three starters for two guys not in their future.
Cavs get lebrons friend in melo and a sg or back up pg in rose.
Cavs starting five
18 Jan 2017 20:10:34
Reasonable trade but I reckon the Cavs will want to keep Tristan, I could see that deal happening though, I think Knicks have to accept they not going to get any sort of value for Melo, they better trading him for expiring contracts
18 Jan 2017 20:20:36
Thanks for the back up Tre lol don't know if it's enough for NY but I would do this but if it isn't enough offer rights to Cedi or a second round pick or McRae or Liggins if they want one of those two.
18 Jan 2017 20:24:03
Cavs say no only because it leaves them threadbare at center.
Why not replace Thompson with Frye, sending a whole bunch of Ex Knicks home!
18 Jan 2017 20:32:37
Thompson must be included to get this deal. They have Anderson as a back up center if needed so not a terrible back up. The cavs get melo and rose. Two legit piece that may. bridge the gap for the cavs to beat the warriors. Right now I truely don't think the cavs can do it with what they have.
18 Jan 2017 20:35:29
I think those kind of minor pieces are more of annoyance in this kind of trade. They can be added but don't bring any real value back to the Knicks. Knicks real gets in this deal are shumpert and Thompson. Young guys one semi- friendly deals. I like thompsons rebounding next to prozingus. And smith and shumpert can both shoot a bit so that should spread the floor.
18 Jan 2017 20:48:14
Unfortunately Phil won't do a trade unless he gets back Love
18 Jan 2017 21:12:04
If I was Cavs I would need O'Quinn so I have a center. Anderson is out for season so they'd have Frye and Love to play center and its neither's preferred position. I don't think Rose should be part of the deal (they can get a cheaper and easier to acquire backup pg elsewhere or in FA) . I don't really like Melo in that starting lineup I think he'd be more valuable as go to scorer off the bench and that way (if they get another center) Love can go back to pf where I think he would be more effective.
Overall don't like the trade for Cavs. They are giving up 3 best defenders. That starting lineup wouldn't have any interior defensive presence and Melo and Love are both horrible on defense.
18 Jan 2017 18:57:31
LAC: C Anthony, C Lee, NYK '17 1st
NYK: B Griffin and J Crawford
18 Jan 2017 20:28:19
No from Knicks, only because Griffin would most likely bolt after the season, and trading away their first flies directly in the face of why they're trying to move Melo in the first place.

Knicks Trade Deadline Fire Sale
I am a Knicks fan but it's time to blow it up and get what you can for the veterans while they still have a little value.
Celtics get Carmelo Anthony
Knicks get Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson, Terry Rozier, and the Celtics 2017 1st Round Draft Pick
Kings get Derrick Rose and Lance Thomas
Knicks get Kousta Koufos, Willy Cauley-Stein, and Ben McLemore
Timberwolves get Joakim Noah, Sasha Vujacic, Marshall Plumlee, and two future 2nd Round Draft Picks
Knicks get Ricky Rubio
PG/ SG Rozier
SF/ PF Kuzminskas
PF/ C Johnson
SG/ PG Baker
18 Jan 2017 18:53:34
The celtics #1 pick this year is a swap with the nets, so i don't think celtics are going to give a top 3 pick up on this trade.
18 Jan 2017 18:59:59
I absolutely agree it's past time the Knicks blew it up. however your value is way too high on everyone of these deals.
I'm not going to bash melo anymore as I've already discussed why I think he's overrated before.
But rose I haven't yet so I'll go there. First. expiring contract and unrestricted free agent who wants max money. Doesn't care about basketball except it makes him money. He's even missed a game recently because of" family issues". The guy doesn't love the game. I'm not sure if the injury history or what but this guy seems like a problem.
As for Noah. sorry you guys are completely stuck. Age caught up to him quickly. Too bad it was after the Knicks gave him a contract. The wolves may do the deal if you take peks contract back. Maybe that will entice them enough to take Noah on. Not sure they'll include Rubio to just "help you out. "
18 Jan 2017 19:15:23
Unless Phil Jackson mentions the name Porzingis in the first 10 seconds, Ainge hangs up. Not interested in Anthony.
18 Jan 2017 14:31:40
Boston: C Anthony+ CP3+Noel
trade: I Thomas+Smart+A Johnson+ Jerebko+ Crowder+ 1rnd pick Memphis 19+ 1rnd pick clippers 19
Clippers: I thomas+ Jerebko+ return 1rnd pick 19
NY: Crowder+ Zeller+A Johnson+ 1rnd pick Memphis
trade: C Anthony
SF:C Anthony/ J Brown
SG: Bradley/ Fullz
PG:CP3/ Fullz/ Rozier
Boston receive two stars and keep the Nets picks. The stars are aging, so they can give the young players playing time and coaching to develop (They all want a tittle) .
It's a great starting five and a great bench
Clippers get younger, get a draft pick back and they don't have to pay an aging player.
NY can rebuilt. They get a cheap replacement for C Anthony, a fighter and a leader. They also receive a draft pick that could become a lottery pick (Memphis is aging) .
Smart isn't the best pg for philly, but it's a good return for Noel
18 Jan 2017 15:08:41
Smart for Noel is worth considering.
Celtics would not do Thomas (age 27) for Paul (age 31) even up, let alone add pieces.
At this point it's doubtful that Anthony would net the Knicks anything more than a late first, if that. Melo destroys teams.
18 Jan 2017 16:17:11
no thanks from the clippers. ill take cp over it any day. plus the clippers need a smart pg like cp who distributes and doesn't turn the ball over. they don't need a scoring pg.
18 Jan 2017 16:50:45
Side note: celticsblog. com has a story up asking readers if Celtics should make a move for Anthony. At this point, 87 responses and 87 say no.
18 Jan 2017 17:33:50
that late 1st rounder is actually quite funny. pretty moronic comment supercollider.
if we want to talk realistically, as opposed to exaggerations. Melo is still a big addition to a team. Is he going to lead a team to a championship? no. But would he be a great player alongside someone like lebron james or a team where they have a top player and he is the 1A? yup.
so to say he is worth just a late 1st at best is so foolish, it puts into question if you follow basketball.
Just go off stats. How many people do you get 22pts, 7 boards, 3 assists from. for a late 1st? People are making it out like he's 38.hes 32. People are making it out like he's earning 50 million a year. He earns 6 million more than Allan Crabbe. Come on. be reasonable. I know tre will come in with, oh no. he's horrible. He wouldn't want him for free. But then again, this is a guy who has literally said he wants no talented players, because he prefers being the worst team every year until they flip the switch and are world champions.
Kevin love didn't do a thing as a leader. went to the cavs, now people adore him.
Cousins is HORRIBLE as a leader. But he would net a massive amount of picks and prospects.
Melo does not have that value, but if the knicks were going to trade him and he agrees, it would likely be in the range of Jae Crowder, one of the nets picks and some fillers.
Dont like it? that's fine. But that's what the going rate is for a player that produces at Melo's level every year. It just is.
As a Knicks fan, I want him out. I would love a Kevin Love for Melo trade. Straight up, I think Love and Porzingis is quite a fornt court duo.
But to say no one wants melo is stupid. If he was made availabel and would accept a trade, I guarentee you Cleveland, Clippers, Bulls, Celtics, and about 10 other teams would be calling within the first half hour.
18 Jan 2017 17:41:10
They get him for the Memphis pick and Crowder, that's a bargain. And he would help J Brown
CP3 is a great fit in Boston, he could teach Fulz and he's a better defender. CP3
Both CP3 and C Anthony could play limited minuts, so they would be ready when the playoffs start.
The Clippers would be smart, trading CP3 for IT. He's four years younger and he plays like AI. He should start in this years all star team.
18 Jan 2017 18:00:54
I can tell you with near 100 percent certainty, hamburger, that no one in Boston wants Anthony. He scores because he shoots a lot. End of story. He plays no defense, and he would destroy everything the Celtics have put together for the last few years. They're not there yet, but taking on Melo would be a huge step back.
Boston would take him only if he agreed to a huge salary cut and came off the bench without whining.
To say that he's worth more than a late first-round is so foolish that it makes me wonder if you follow basketball.
I don't care if Anthony scores 65 tonight in Boston. No one here wants him.
18 Jan 2017 18:20:09
C's do not want CP3, he's out for maybe 2 months or more and next year he'll make 24+ with no guarantee he'll re-sign. IT will make 6.2 next year. Would not be a good business move.
And as far as Yellow-Melo. Enough with that! Clippers may trade Blake for him now that CP3 is out, or maybe Cleveland.
And there is no way Boston will trade Smart for Noel.
Every team would love to have a Marcus Smart.
If C's are smart they'll go after Vucevic.
18 Jan 2017 18:36:02
Hamburger is spot on

Melo doesn't say yes unless it's to the other LA team, and Lakers don't give up piece of their future for him.
18 Jan 2017 09:10:35
If Lakers don't get the 1-3 pick this season, it's becomes the 76ers, the Knicks ain't getting value for Anthony, they better just keeping him to off-season when it be easier to trade him away
17 Jan 2017 22:49:29
Lakers get Rose, schumpert Thompson
Knicks get clarkson Deng Young 2nd round choice in 2018
18 Jan 2017 07:08:35
Not sure I understand, where did the Cavs come into or get left out of this trade?
18 Jan 2017 09:13:42
Terrible trade for Lakers, Rose on a expiring contract, his trade value is equivalent to a 2nd rounder
17 Jan 2017 21:28:12

17 Jan 2017 21:41:45
Way way way too much going on for it to happen.
17 Jan 2017 21:47:18
I think for Melo to work on that team he'd have to come off the bench. If he is willing to do that I actually like the trade for them although it doesn't really address their key issues of not having a backup center (I don't think Love could play major minutes at center and be as effective as he is at pf) or pg.
At this point I think Knicks need to deal Melo and the return is likely not going to be too appealing. This return isn't great especially when you factor in Knicks are giving up more than just Melo. They do get two young guys with decent upside in Noel and Stauskas but both have low trade value right now.
The Sixers return isn't all that great either. Jennings and Rose are upcoming FA and getting Thompson doesn't really solve their loaded center issue (although he has significant trade value if another team was brought in) . The Sixers aren't really giving too much up either tho.
17 Jan 2017 21:55:17
Kinda just seems like every team is getting rid of their garbage (besides Melo)
18 Jan 2017 00:51:56
Kinda amazing how ritequick is the cavs version of ddrainer. Terrible trades where only his home team wins. Great.
17 Jan 2017 18:40:11
Melo should pair up with a younger superstar. if Pelicans could ever convince him.
Pels - Carmelo Anything, Justin Holiday
Knicks - Buddy Heild, Tyreke Evans, Solomon Hill, 2017 and 2018 unprotected 1st rounders
PG - Holiday - Galloway - Frazier
SG - Holiday - Moore
SF - Melo - Cunningham - Pondexter
PF - Davis - Jones
C - Monteunas - Asik - Aijanca - Diello
17 Jan 2017 19:27:55
For the right price maybe since Pelicans could use somebody else who can score the ball other than Davis but that is giving up too much for Melo who I don't think has very many suitors given his offense only play-style, large contract and age. That doesn't even factor in the issue that Melo won't likely waive his no trade-clause to play for anybody and play anywhere. Doubt he'd want to go to Nola where its basically just as bad from a basketball perspective as NY.
17 Jan 2017 19:37:18
Can't trade consecutive firsts and that's too much for Melo. One of those picks, since they are going to be good picks is plenty.
17 Jan 2017 19:38:19
If Phil Jackson gets a call like that, he doing his best to convince Melo to move
I think Melo would use his no trade clause plus Pelicans are giving far too much up, take the draft picks off and I think it's more of a feasible deal
17 Jan 2017 20:32:12
Melo won't waive his no trade or go there.
17 Jan 2017 11:25:00

Cavs get carmelo anthony
Knicks get kevin love
1 on 1 trade
buyout month get tyson chandler
17 Jan 2017 05:37:58
Doubt Tyson Chandler will get bought out this year
17 Jan 2017 06:36:35
There's no way chandler gets waived. He's still owed $26 million over the next two years after this year. He's also still producing enough to have some value.
17 Jan 2017 11:53:00
Cavs would be foolish to deal Love straight up for Melo. It is especially foolish this late in the season where the risk of messing up chemistry and the locker room far outweighs any benefit Melo may bring (although I don't see it) . The most common reason I see as why Cavs should trade for Melo is since he and Lebron are friends.
I think offensively Melo would be a poor fit alongside Lebron and Irving since they all need the ball in their hand and Melo has been used to this role his entire career. There would be a significant adjustment period (similar to what was seen with Love) that would set them back. Love is a better spot up shooter and one of the best passers for his position so I think offensively he is a much better fit. Defensively they are both trash. On the boards Love has a significant advantage. Then from a GM perspective Love is 5 years younger, signed longer, and is cheaper.
The only way I could imagine Melo on the Cavs is if he is willing to play off the bench and Cavs get more pieces in the deal like O'Quinn, Lee and Jennings (Cavs would have to deal Shumpert and use trade exception to make it work)
17 Jan 2017 13:29:25
Agreed Jaw, if Melo moving it's in the off season, Melo value at the minute is very low
17 Jan 2017 15:48:42
Idk if cavs want melo. I know lebron and him are friends but melo is a ball hog. And only getting older. This trade was suggested in the beginning of the year and I said absolutely and fair value and Knicks should do this immediately. unfortunately Knicks got ahead of themselves and thought they could sign mediocre guys and rise to the top. now Melos value is much less and I just don't think he can bring much more then maybe a future unprotected pick. His contract, age, and repuatation don't go in his favor. His numbers are great but his number are always good to great. that's what happens when your a ball hog.
17 Jan 2017 02:12:37

NYK - LAC - PHX
NYK get: Eric Bledsoe and JJ Reddick (Exp)
LAC get: Tyson Chandler, Carmelo Anthony, and Brandon Jennings
PHX get: Deandre Jordan and Austin Rivers
16 Jan 2017 23:42:51
I think there will be so little interest in Melo that Clippers can potential get him without giving up part of their big 3. Tyson Chandler has been much improved this year but he is a significant downgrade from Jordan especially in the long term. If I'm LA I don't think I'd do this particular trade especially since they are giving up Reddick and Rivers too.
17 Jan 2017 00:13:49
Phoenix would have to give up more
17 Jan 2017 00:24:56
Clippers say no, they are way more inclined to trade blake than deandre, and let's all agree that Baby doc is untouchable.
17 Jan 2017 02:53:04
It's not bad, but if the Clips make this move and Paul leaves during the summer, it becomes a train wreck.
16 Jan 2017 19:53:36

16 Jan 2017 19:12:25
Austin Rivers, Jamal Crawford, 2017 and 2019 first round pick, cash considerations
16 Jan 2017 19:33:47
About all Anthony is worth is one mid-to-late first-rounder.
16 Jan 2017 19:53:26
You can hate on melo but 22 6 and 4 isn't coming out of the mid to late first round
16 Jan 2017 19:58:49
Supercoxsuxer upset that C's are no better position to win a championshiip than the Knicks 3 or 10 seed makes no difference. Love hating on Melo. But instantly Melo would be there Leading scorer.
16 Jan 2017 20:35:39
The clippers don't own those picks
2017 toronto, 2019 boston
16 Jan 2017 21:01:58
Melo would be the leading scorer on any team he's on because he never passes. Poison and the Knicks are stuck with him. Second-round pick max to any desperate team that would take him.
16 Jan 2017 23:50:07
Supercollider, so one minute you say he's worth a first, then as soon as your feelings are hurt he's only worth a second? I don't like Melo, but the fact that you say he doesn't pass shows you haven't watched a Knicks game in the past couple of years because melo is unselfish.
17 Jan 2017 00:28:56
Doc won't trade his son. His wife would quit ****ing him. Your dumb.
17 Jan 2017 02:39:06
No Knicks fan like him. Don't sleep on his value. Griffin and Melo have same value by CP3 window is same as Melo
17 Jan 2017 03:04:56
Supercollider, I Can't wait for Ainge to deal away Johnson, Crowder and a non Nets first for Melo. I'm Not what I would like more, you coming on here and trumpeting your new favourite C, or watching your head explode when you get wind of the move.
17 Jan 2017 14:54:36
Anthony would be the C's leading scorer. hahahahaha you obviously forgot about 28ppg from IT.
16 Jan 2017 18:25:38
knicks finally dump melo
knicks: jamal crawford, sullinger, and terrance ross
raptors: blake griffin, lance thomas and mo speights
clippers: melo patrick patterson

16 Jan 2017 20:01:07
Ny says no thx
17 Jan 2017 00:29:47
Knicks say no unless phil jackson really is running the team.
17 Jan 2017 03:07:56
I would seriously question my Knick fandom if they moved Melo and the net result at the end of the year was Terrence Ross.
16 Jan 2017 18:01:47
New york receives Wesley Johnson, Shabazz Muhammad, Bryce Johnson, Diamond Stone, Clippers 2020 1st pick, and the right to swap picks in 2019, 21, and 22.
Clippers receive Carmelo Anthony
Minnesota recieves Jamal Crawford and Luc Mbah a Moute.
The Knicks get young talent and a 13 million dollar drop in cap space.
The Clippers get Carmelo without having to give up any of their core players.
Minnesota ends up with 2 veterans who could help them win now and do it for fairly cheap.
16 Jan 2017 18:10:49
If I'm the Knicks I'd want Austin rivers since he is only 24 and a solid combo guard. I think Clippers should offer everything outside of their big three for Melo and i don't think the Knicks should be expecting a good return for Melo as he is almost 33, has a large contract and has shown he cannot lead a team consistently to playoffs let alone a championship.
16 Jan 2017 19:17:08
Agreed, I could see Austin Rivers in the deal, but I also think the Clippers would be bidding against themselves. Toronto is the only other team I see being desperate enough to go after him and who knows if he would even be willing to waive his no trade clause to go to Toronto.
16 Jan 2017 20:10:49
To get Melo it's going cost Griffin and NY would trade him to Celtics for smart Crowder johnson
16 Jan 2017 20:32:07
Griffin is better and younger than melo. If that were the cost, Melo is going to stay in New York and it doesn't make sense for Knicks to keep Melo. They are no where near a championship level team and they don't have the cap space, young talent, or draft picks to get there in the next 2 or 3 years. In 3 years Melo will be 36.
