"The one thing I think there's a danger for everybody is that there are a lot of people on a one-year rope," Karl said, according to the report. "And I think that's somewhat dangerous; there's a lot of junk that goes with one-year ropes."

He right about that, worse thing if you wish to build a team long-term

Knicks May Not Have Assets To Trade For Carmelo

Posted Image

Carmelo Anthony is making it known that New York is his preferred destination, but the Knicks may not have the assets to satisfy the Denver Nuggets, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

"What do they have?" a Nuggets source said. "That makes it tough."

There are reports that the Knicks' offer would include Eddy Curry's expiring contract, a future first-round pick and Danilo Gallinari, although Donnie Walsh and Mike D'Antoni will try to replace Gallinari with Wilson Chandler in a proposed trade for Anthony.

Anthony is scheduled to become a free agent on July 1, but the Nuggets will likely deal the All-Star forward between now and the February trading deadline if he declines to sign a three-year, $65 million contract extension. Anthony's college coach, Syracuse's Jim Boeheim, said last week that he believed it would be difficult for Anthony to not sign the contract.

While Anthony, who was born in Brooklyn, wants to join the Knicks, there are other clubs he would consider signing with if they traded for him, including the Nets, Bulls, Rockets and Magic.

No deal for Anthony is imminent, especially since Denver is in the process of interviewing candidates for its vacant general manager job. The GM's first order of business will be to convince Anthony to sign an extension. If Anthony insists on being traded, there is no guarantee he would be dealt before the start of the season.

Nuggets Want GM In Place Before Making Decision On Carmelo

Posted Image

The Nuggets claim they haven't engaged in any trade discussions involving forward Carmelo Anthony and they aren't likely to until they have a general manager in place.

The Denver Post reports that all signs point to former Suns executive David Griffin being the top candidate and an announcement could come next week.

Nothing has been finalized because the Nuggets are still talking to candidates.

Denver won't make any moves regarding Anthony until a general manager is in place and he is able to sit down and talk with the forward.

Just The Knicks On Melo's Wish List?

Posted Image

Carmelo Anthony's wish list could consist of a single destination.

"Melo wants it all," said his friend, indicating that Anthony's desire is to play for the Knicks.

Like many clubs, the Mavericks would naturally have interest in acquiring Anthony but the team reportedly believes that New York is where Anthony intends to wind up.

Without Anthony agreeing to sign an extension with the team to which the Nuggets would trade him -- a rare 'extend-and-trade' scenario -- Denver could have a hard time receiving quality offers in return.

"Carmelo wants the legacy. The fastest way for him to become a transcendent player is to get away from the Lakers (and the Western Conference), lead the Knicks to success, get that endorsement money, and be close to home (on the East Coast)," said a source. "He’s as concerned about his ‘image’ and his ‘profile’ as any player in the NBA. If he can pull this off, he’s right there with LeBron and Kobe."

Carmelo A Clipper?

Posted Image

Meanwhile, if the Nuggets cannot convince Carmelo Anthony to sign an extension with the team and they decide to trade him at some point, could it be to the Los Angeles Clippers? I’m hearing it could be a possibility. It would get both he and his wife, La La, out to where entertainment opportunities are plentiful, which is key factor in their decision to want to move on. The Nuggets might be able to get a good young player or two or draft picks, and Anthony would be able to play on a team with some good up-and-coming talent.

That would suck for teams out West. That's actually a really good trio with a LOT of potential.

Possible. Only if Denver wants to rebuild. The Clippers have various young pieces outside of Griffin to offer (although he's the first player Denver will ask for).

If they're willing to part with Gordon and package him with Aminu + Bledsoe/Jordan then I don't see how Denver can't take a hard look at that. They get some high quality young talent in return. Solid perimeter player in Gordon, Aminu is a nice project you can develop to eventually replace Carmelo at the 3 in the coming years and Jordan is another project, but he's a big man which Denver could use at this point.

There will be better offers, though.

The Nuggets would surely ask for Gordon, Kaman, and/or Griffin if he were to be dealt there.

Just another player with a complete lack of leadership skills and the maturity to step up when it counts on the Clippers.

It would be a perfect fit.

Carmelo Anthony(notes) wants out of Denver, and World Wide Wes delivered that message to the Nuggets with all the delicacy of a jackhammer at Sunday morning services. Do yourself a favor and trade him, the agent told the organization weeks ago.

Denver was furnished with a short list of teams and told to get to work. Yes, this how William Wesley and Leon Rose of CAA work now, thick with threats and ultimatums and a swagger suggesting that the sport belongs to them. After Anthony told owner-in-waiting Josh Kroenke that he still wanted out of Denver during a Sunday meeting, the Nuggets appear done trying to sell their All-Star forward on a contract extension.

This wasn’t a productive, nor particularly pleasant, meeting and multiple sources said it could turn out to be the point of no return for Anthony and the organization. Sources insist it’s no longer a matter of if the Nuggets trade Anthony, but when, where and for whom he’s traded for.

“It’s almost a given they’re going to move him,” said a front-office executive who’s talked with the Nuggets and Anthony’s agents with CAA.

Between the agents’ bullying and Anthony’s dismissive disposition in Sunday’s meeting, sources said Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke, Josh’s father, finally made a stand with CAA.

Keep it up, and the Nuggets will never do a deal for one of your clients again.

Try to dictate terms of a trade and we won’t move him.

Keep up the heavy-handedness and you’ll get a war.

Kroenke has decided to deal with CAA in a way most of the league is too fearful to try. Leon Rose, the agent who works with Wesley, backed down, sources said, and is willing to be more open-minded on potential trade destinations. Anthony wants to leave Denver and get his three-year, $65 million contract extension now. This partnership is rounding third and rapidly reaching disrepair. Denver is willing to trade Anthony, J.R. Smith(notes) and Kenyon Martin(notes), and start over again, sources said.

The Nuggets made it clear to teams they want young players and draft picks for Anthony, league executives said. The New Jersey Nets and Los Angeles Clippers have emerged as the two most probable destinations for Anthony because they have assets that appeal to Denver. The geography works for Anthony because of his wife LaLa Vazquez’s entertainment career.

Golden State and Houston are contenders, too. What’s more, the Charlotte Bobcats are a sleeper because of Anthony’s Brand Jordan shoe deal and the team’s ability to give the Nuggets a salary-dump proposal.

Back in mid-July, the Kroenkes had to travel to New York for Anthony’s wedding to finally realize he no longer intended to sign their extension offer. The reception spiraled into an evening of Chris Paul(notes) and Anthony’s brother making toasts about a future partnership for Anthony and Paul in New York with the Knicks. With nothing to trade for Anthony, though, New York isn’t considered a strong contender in the eyes of Denver management.

Few can be as strong-minded and willful as Stan Kroenke, and it doesn’t matter the Nuggets will be turned over to his son Josh by the end of the year. Stan still will be lording over the franchise, and the billionaire has shown an old-school ability to carry through on his convictions once you’ve lost him as an ally.

With the way that CAA has tried to muscle and manipulate the market this summer, a source said Stan Kroenke, freshly approved as the St. Louis Rams owner, feels further emboldened in the NBA’s collective bargaining talks to push for a “franchise player” tag that teams could slap on superstars like the one the NFL uses. NBA owners are still far from seriously discussing that issue, but CAA’s manipulation of Anthony and Paul while under contract has become an increasingly sore subject within the league.

For now, the departure of Denver general manager Mark Warkentien and the increased influence of Kroenke advisor Bret Bearup means there won’t be much of a fight within the organization to stay the course with Anthony, sources said. Denver has hired Masai Ujiri as its new GM, but he doesn’t arrive with the authority to make major moves. Things have deteriorated too fast and grown too nasty to believe Denver will turn back now. ‘Melo is on the market, and the bidding has begun.
