Carmelo Anthony Trade: There are many proposals floating around online, but the mostly like scenario is a 3-team trade that swaps a staggering 15 players: New Jersey gets Melo, Billups, Rip Hamilton, Anthony Carter and Shelden Williams; Denver gets Derrick Favors, Devin Harris, Anthony Morrow, Quinton Ross, Stephen Graham, Ben Uzoh and two first-round picks; Detroit gets Troy Murphy and Johan Petro. If Chris Paul arrives in two years, then they become a contender (definitely not next year with just Melo & Lopez). If he doesn’t? Melo will regret the move, but be swimming in money, Scrooge McDuck-style. [Yahoo Sports, Denver Post]
Gotta be careful in these streets.
