A fan on Twitter asked Chris Broussard who Carmelo’s preferences are besides the ones already released and surprisingly, the Lakers came up. Here’s how the talks went.
Chris Broussard: Sources tell me Melo’s first choice still New York Knicks.
Fan: any other teams?
Chris Broussard (replies): Nets, Lakers, Rockets, maybe Bulls. But Knicks definite No. 1 choice.
If a trade was to be worked out, it would include one of the 3 Laker bigs – Lamar, Andrew and Pau. However, the more realistic picture would be the Nuggets going for ‘Drew or Pau since they would decrease the Lakers’ size and add to their own because we all know (as well as the Nuggets do) that they have trouble against the Lakers because of the Lakers’ size advantage.
Although the Knicks are Melo’s No. 1 choice, it’s still fun to see the Lakers come up in the list. We all know it’s a long shot, but it’s still fun to imagine a lineup with Kobe, Melo and Pau.
So guys, would you trade for Melo?
