Hello Melo? Carmelo Anthony Trade Rumors

Nate Hanley, Staff Reporter

Rumors are circulating that Carmelo Anthony of the Denver Nuggets may be traded to the Chicago Bulls.  Reports have shown that Anthony will be traded before the February trade line.  The New York Knicks are also very interested in Anthony.

Last season Anthony averaged 28.2 points per game, 6.6 rebounds per game, and 3.2 assists per game.  Anthony is not only one of the NBA’s top scorers but also one of the league’s top players.

Anthony has been offered a $65 million three-year extension by the Nuggets.  Chauncey Billups, a Denver teammate of Anthony, has been trying to get Anthony to stay put in Denver.

Chicago has offered Luol Deng, Taj Gibson and one future first-rounder for Anthony.  Joakim Noah has been taken off Chicago’s trading block for Anthony.  The Bulls look interested in Anthony after LeBron James signed with the Miami Heat.  If Anthony were to come to the Bulls, he would be playing with Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, and recently acquired Carlos Boozer.

New York on the other hand look to make a deal including Eddy Curry and Danilo Gallinari or Anthony Randolph.  The Knicks lack future draft picks to offer in a deal with Denver.  Anthony would get to play with Amare Stoudemire if traded to New York.

Anthony’s agent has been rushing the Nuggets to make a deal with either the Knicks or Bulls before training camp starts, but the Nuggets seem to be in no sort of hurry to trade away their seven year veteran superstar player.

Stay tuned to see where Anthony ends up.
