Carmelo in Jersey?
Can this NBA offseason get even more crazy?
Answer is yes it can. Carmelo Anthony, who has been the Nuggets franchise player since 2003 wants out of Denver and his wish may get granted very soon. 4 teams are having very serious talks circling around Carmelo Anthony. The 4 teams involved are Nuggets, Nets (the team trying to get Anthony), the Bobcats and the Jazz. As of Now the Nets would get Carmelo, the Nuggets will recive the Nets 1st round pick 19 Year Old PF Derrick Favors out of Georgia Tech and NBA veteran Andrei Kirilenko and future first round draft picks. The Bobcats will get the Nets Point Guard, Devin Harris and the Jazz would get Charlottes big man, Boris Diaw.
This whole conversation broke out after Carmelo's first two teams of interest the Knicks and Bulls lacked the pieces to the puzzle needed by Denver. Bulls were not giving up Joakim Noah who the Nuggets really wanted. And for the Knicks they really have no talent other then Anthony Randolph and Amar'e Stoudemire. The Nuggets did offer Carmelo a 3 year $65 million contract but he has yet to respond to it.
Wherever Anthony stays it will still get a lot of publicity like the rest of this summer but lets see if the actual season can live up to its offseason
