There will be dozens of Carmelo Anthony trade rumors floated between now and February, but hopefully the Nuggets will get something better than this: 2010 1st round pick Derrick Favors, a future No. 1 pick, and cap space, for Carmelo Anthony, who is easily a top 10 player in the NBA. Two reasons why we prefer dealing for Monta Ellis, role players, and a future pick: 1) Favors turned 19 in July and is a couple years away from being a factor (the assumption is he’ll be good, but who knows); 2) Cap space is great in theory, but who’s going to Denver? 3) That future No. 1 will be in the 23-30 range.
