Carmelo Anthony, via da New York: Chicago, Houston o LA nel suo futuro?

Carmelo Anthony, via da New York: Chicago, Houston o LA nel suo futuro?

New York si è affidata a Phil Jackson per rifondare la franchigia: nel futuro della squadra della Grande Mela però potrebbe non esserci Carmelo Anthony, che nonostante le ultime dichiarazioni positive sull’arrivo di Coach Zen, non rientrerebbe nei piani del nuovo presidente (e general manager) dei Knicks.

Il giornalista di ESPN  Stephen Smith ha rilasciato alcune dichiarazioni molto importanti…

The Nets are crazy. If they surrender Favors and five first-rounders here (…) they would have paid an unthinkable price for Anthony and Harrington, whose mid-level contract is fully guaranteed through 2012-13 and partially guaranteed for two seasons after that.

Jordan Farmar would be their full-time point guard. Their likely starting lineup would be Anthony, Harrington, Farmar, Brook Lopez and Anthony Morrow. Their bench would consist of Travis Outlaw — perhaps the league’s biggest new free-agent bust right now — and zero other useful assets. You don’t trade five first-round draft picks for that roster.

SI’s Zach Lowe solidifies a growing sentiment: that both the Nuggets and Nets don’t have a clue.

The Nuggets are turning down a trade that “nets” them 2 or 3 1st round picks, plus last drafts 3rd overall big Derrick Favors, and for what? Because they don’t want to inherit $8 million on a contract THAT IS EXPIRING???

Meanwhile the Nets are selling the farm for the above mentioned lineup - a team if they’re lucky might get swept as a 7 or 8 seed the next 2 seasons - when they should be using these next 3 years to build through the draft before moving to Brooklyn.

Meanwhile, Carmelo to the Knicks is all that anybody really wants.
