Carmelo Anthony Trade Rumors: Nuggets Could Spin Players From Knicks To Nets

For the last few months, the typical thought process has been that the New York Knicks and New Jersey Nets have been competing to see which team will be able to obtain Carmelo Anthony in most NBA trade rumors.

It turns out, according to an ESPN report, that the Nuggets are actually interested in working out a trade that allows all three teams to get in on the action despite only one of them being able to say they were the team that was leaking the right information when it came to who would bring Anthony aboard during the two-month surge in Carmelo Anthony trade rumors.

According to Chris Broussard, if the Knicks send Danilo Gallinari, Raymond Felton, Wilson Chandler and Timofey Mozgov to Denver for Anthony, the Nets are in discussions to then acquire either Gallinari, Felton or Chandler plus Mozgov for two first-round draft picks.

Broussard explains that this is a backup plan for the Nets if they aren’t able to pry away Anthony, but one that might also irritate the Knicks considering a few of their young pieces would soon be moving nearby in Brooklyn.

And, as an update, it seems none of this scenario will happen if the Knicks keep Mozgov out of the talks as they have done thus far.

The NBA trade deadline is Thursday, meaning either way, the Melo-drama will be completed in the next few days.
