Nets reach tentative deal to acquire Carmelo Anthony


Recommended Posts

ESPN is saying the new owner will meet with Carmelo this weekend to discuss the trade.

 

They also say Denver will take one of those 1st round picks along with Troy Murphy to make another trade.

 

I like the trade for the Nets. Exposure gets attention from FAs and many will want to come and play in the NYC market IF they think they have good talent and a good owner.

The Nets would send rookie Derrick Favors, point guard Devin Harris, forward Troy Murphy with his expiring $11.9 million contract, rookie guard Ben Uzoh, and four first-round draft picks to the Nuggets for Anthony, point guard Chauncey Billups, forwards Renaldo Balkman and Shelden Williams, and center Melvin Ely.

 

The Nets would surrender their first-round pick for June's NBA Draft along with a pair of 2012 picks (a protected-to-18 pick received from the Lakers and a protected-to-seven pick from the Warriors), and a 2011 lottery-protected Rockets pick.

 

Something like that.

Yea, but the Nets could build around him this off season. On top of that a young Brook lopez is still in the building. I like the trade.

 

Build with what? They won't have any good draft picks. It's not like there are a ton of awesome free agents knocking down their door next year.
