Default Is 'Melo the next big star to move?

Nuggets consider options as Anthony's free agency looms - NBA - CBSSports.com Basketball

He is reluctant to re-sign with Denver, and could either be traded before his contract expires (which would be smart for Denver as there is no way they let him go without getting anything in return) or wait until 2011 to have his LeBron moment.

'Melo is an East Coast guy and I think he'll go to the Nets or Knicks. What do you all think?

I think he is wasting his time going to the Knicks. Mike D'Antoni and Amare' are proven post season losers. As long as D'Antoni is the coach in NY they will never be anything more than a paper lion.

Thats not neccessarily true, if you can get Amare CP3 and Melo in NY together, I dont think its a waste of time. Stupid yes but a waste of time...no

Even if they get Paul and Anthony they still won't win because the style of basketball D'Antoni runs is a proven failure. Just look at how many titles coaches like Don Nelson, Paul Westphal, and Doug Moe have won. That is why it is a waste of time. Sure you get on TV more but if you aren't winning championships then you are wasting your time.

It is no coincidence that the coaches with multiple titles are the ones who promote rebounding and defense over simply trying to outscore their opponents.

Sounds like the Nets and Clips are the front runners to land Carmelo.

Anthony, Nuggets look ready to part ways - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

Knicks are not considered to be strong contenders simply because they have nothing to offer in a deal and Carmelo still wants his extension.

The latest rumors have the Nuggets and Bulls talking about a deal for Carmelo with the Bulls possibly giving up Deng and Noah. It is believed that Anthony is willing to sign a long term deal with the Bulls.

This story is still getting play: Sources: Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks at top of Carmelo Anthony's trade wish list - ESPN

The Nuggets HAVE to trade him, as it's apparent he won't re-sign. The question is, will they trade him to one of his "wish list" teams? I could see him in Chicago...

The Nuggets need to trade him somewhere where they can get talent back in return Chicago makes sense.

Well Chicago is probably out now that Boozer is hurt and the Bulls cannot afford to part with Noah while Boozer is on the shelf.
