I am a Dallas Mavericks fan. Now although we probably should never consider helping a division opponent, there is an opportunity here. We upgrade their present while continuing to build our future.

In this scenario, the Dallas Mavericks becomes the third team to get Melo to Houston.

Houston receives:
Carmelo Anthony

Dallas receives:
Eric Gordon
Future 2nd round pick from Houston
Future 2nd round pick from New York

New York receives:
Seth Curry
Clint Capela
Dwight Powell
Trevor Ariza
Future 1st round pick from Houston

Houston gets what they want. New York goes youth like they want, along with vet Trevor Ariza to take over starting SF for a year. Mavericks get what they hope Seth Curry will become in a couple of years - Eric Gordon.

Mavericks starting lineup:
6-man Bledsoe

If i'm houston i'm not giving up ariza, a person who will have assignments like kd and kawhi and he will feast off three's from cp3 and harden. And i'm not giving up anderson, a person who will also feast off passes from cp3 and harden. Rockers were good because they had a whole lot of 3 point snipers. I say those snipers aren't worth getting melo for. If u get melo u have 3 ball dominant players in cp3 harden and melo (a ball stopper) . Mike dantoni's system favors one ball handler (they already have 2) then a penetration and kick offense.

20 Jul 2017 11:15:46
Rest of Pelicans offseason

Melo trade

Pels get Ariaza

Pelicans get Troy Daniels with Buddy Hield trade exception

Trade three
Pelicans get Bellinelli

Hawks get Booker and Quincy P

Brooklyn get Hill, Asik(stretch) a first round pick top three 2018 and a second round pick 2020

20 Jul 2017 19:37:24
suns don't give up a first rounder fir Anderson, its a salary dump they would need more than just Anderson to give up a pick.

19 Jul 2017 13:54:27

19 Jul 2017 19:35:19
Knicks are not giving away 1st rounders! Period!

20 Jul 2017 19:45:27
pistons don't have the cap room to do this and why would they, no one wants parsons, also stan van gundy is very high on stanley johnson.

19 Jul 2017 06:35:11
The Cavs get Anderson, Ariza, and O'quinn

The Knicks get Felder, Shumpert (next year he has a player option that he most likely opts out of looking for a long term deal), Frye (exp), Edy Tavares, 2 Houston firsts, and the Houston non guaranteed contracts

Houston gets Jefferson and Melo

The Cavs bench gets better with Ariza being a better 3 and D option than Shumpert, Anderson being able
to play Frye's role with better defense, and gaining a young big who can block shots in O'quinn

The Knicks get take back almost no salary after next year while adding a decent prospect in Felder and 2 1sts

Houston gets Melo, gets to keep their bench scorer, and gets Jefferson who is still capable of helping a thin bench.

19 Jul 2017 08:56:15
I love the idea behind the trade. Cavs strengthen their bench with 3pt shooting and hustle defense. Knicks rid themselves of Melo. Houston rounds out their Big 3. However, I think giving up 2 first round picks in addition to Anderson and Ariza is too much for Carmelo.

19 Jul 2017 10:14:10
Huge return for Anthony. Knicks clear winners in that deal.

19 Jul 2017 12:55:18
Rkenne knows his days as cav fan are over after next yr. #bybyelebron.

19 Jul 2017 14:32:02
Like it.

19 Jul 2017 15:08:52
Shizze75, Lebron or no Lebron I'm a Cavs fan. I'm not convinced he's walking after this season, but if he does the team is still a lot better than the late 90s/ early 2000s and when he left the 1st time. I have mixed feelings on Gilbert, but atleast he wants a winner. How's Dolan treating you?

19 Jul 2017 23:36:13
Gilbert only has been successful because of lebron. Don't kid yourself. He's as awful an owner as Dolan.

19 Jul 2017 06:01:17

jazz - anderson + ariza


rockets - anthony


knicks - favors + burks + non-guaranteed contract rockets + 2nd utah


19 Jul 2017 06:36:32
Not a fan of Utah getting older now that Hayward left. They went from being a middle of the pack playoff team to a team that will struggle to get in.

19 Jul 2017 10:14:56
Love the deal for NY.

19 Jul 2017 12:56:56
Rather have Anderson and Ariza.

18 Jul 2017 17:56:59

Portland gets- Ryan Anderson, Joe Harris

New York gets- Evan Turner, Trevor Booker, Pat Connaughton, Isiah Taylor, Shawn Long, 1st rd pick (HOU)

Houston gets- Carmelo Anthony

Brooklyn gets- Allen Crabbe, Noah Vonleh, 2nd rd pick (POR)

What's your thoughts?

18 Jul 2017 19:02:06
Not bad for Portland since they drop salary and currently have the highest payroll in basketball. Anderson could be solid for them

New York turns it down. They won't take on turners contract and nothing there really enticed them to do it.

Ok for Houston

I'm not sure Brooklyn does this. They get some fairly young talent, but that's a basically takes up the rest of their cap space the next two years.

18 Jul 2017 19:14:55
I agree it takes up their cap space for the next few years, but the Crabbe contract is only one year longer than Mozgov/ Carroll, plus they tried signing Crabbe when he was a RFA.

18 Jul 2017 19:18:01
Also the NYK were trying to sign Turner when he was a FA.

18 Jul 2017 19:51:27
The Knicks were going in a different direction at the time, they most likely didn't offer 18 million a year for 4 years, and Turner's value has value has dropped since his play has been subpar since he joined Portland

Brooklyn had more space when they made the last few moves, they ended up getting a player with allstar potential in the Mozgov deal, and Carroll's contract isn't as big as the other 2s and they still landed a 1st. I'm not saying it's unthinkable that they would do it, but I would think they would want to keep cap space open in case they can sign a restricted free agent with up side next year.

It's a lot of salary to take on for 2 players who's upside looks at best like a solid starters and most likely will turn into a 3 and d shooting guard and an end of the rotation big.

18 Jul 2017 20:56:34
literally, the knicks would be better off just buying out melo. Turner is a role player that should be making half what he does. Melo, if kept by the knicks, will opt out after this season and the knicks will have that cap relief. This trade just screws them for a few more years, and at least melo provided production, turner sucks.

18 Jul 2017 23:03:00
Hamburger is right. Anthony has little value and it will cost Knicks to just get rid of him. But having Turner, a former Celtic, would make NY better.

18 Jul 2017 17:30:55
Knicks - Magic - Raptors - Rockets

Knicks gets:
2020 1st Rockets (Top 10 protected)
Taylor (Waive)
Quartermann (Waive)
Long (Waive)
Onuako (Waive)

Magic gets:

Raptors gets:
Future 2nd Rockets

Rockets gets:

18 Jul 2017 19:33:30
Magic and Raptors both turn that down.

19 Jul 2017 01:26:48
What NY do with 3 centers.

18 Jul 2017 15:18:21

Detroit gets- Ryan Anderson, Tyson Chandler, Courtney Lee, Kyle O'Quinn, Tyler Ulis, 1st rd pick (HOU), 1st rd pick (PHO)

New York gets- Brandon Knight, Jared Dudley, Boban Marjanovic, Dragan Bender, TJ Warren

Houston gets- Carmelo Anthony

Pheonix gets- Andre Drummond, Reggie Jackson, John Leur, Shawn Long, Isiah Taylor

What's your thoughts?

18 Jul 2017 15:38:15
I don't like it for Detroit. It would basically send them into a rebuild already over the softcap.

New York probably ends up getting to much. They would accept that in a second.

Not bad for Houston.

Phoenix gives up way to many of their young assets to essentially get Drummond and use their cap space to take on 2 contracts that the other teams in this trade don't want.

17 Jul 2017 18:21:00

Houston gets- Carmelo Anthony

New York gets- Reggie Jackson, Shawn Long, Isiah Taylor

Detroit gets- Ryan Anderson

17 Jul 2017 19:32:19
Houston needs to move more salary than that to land Melo.

17 Jul 2017 20:45:46
I don't see how Reggie Jackson really fits into New York's plans. At this point he's barely worth his contract and seems to be losing value.

17 Jul 2017 14:53:53
NYK- Eric Bledsoe, Trevor Ariza
PHX- Dwayne Wade, 2022 HOU 1st (top 3 protected)
HOU- Carmelo Anthony
CHI- Ryan Anderson, Dragon Bender, 2020 HOU 1st (top 3 protected)

17 Jul 2017 15:11:26
Why in the world would suns do this? Suns are a young team that should be building for the future. They have no need for Wade especially at this price. A 2022 first is way too far in the future to have much value and since Rockets have Harden locked up until then they probably won't be awful. That would be a bad return on Bledsoe but giving up Bender too who they used a #4 pick for a year ago is beyond reason.

Even tho Bulls are getting a complete steal despite only giving up Wade (who probably has little value other than as an expiring contract) trade doesn't make sense for them. Even if they don't bring back Mirotic they still have Portis and Markkanen as pf and don't need to add two more.

17 Jul 2017 15:39:30
Needed a laugh early in the morning today. this Wade to PHX thing surely provided one. Not a chance in the netherworld this could happen.

17 Jul 2017 00:01:28
3 team trade POR-SA-IND

Blazers give: Leonard, Davis, Aminu, Napier 2018 first
Blazers get: LA and Green

Extremely deep team Lillard, Crabbe, Turner, McCollum, Green, Harkless, Vonleh, LA, Nurkic, Collins could contend with GS, SA, and HOU imo

SA gives: LA, Green
SA gets: Young, Davis

Sheds LA's deal and Greens deal while adding depth at the 4.

IND gives: Young
IND gets: Leonard, Aminu, Napier 2018 1st

Adds depth and a 1st rounder for taking Leonard's and Aminus deals

17 Jul 2017 01:39:12
Terrible for the Spurs. I like Young, but Davis is a nothing player. Giving up LA for a package that includes Young is fine, but that package can't begin and end with him and Davis.

17 Jul 2017 05:12:30
Portland has no interest in LA at this juncture for many reasons. did you actually watch LA in the playoffs. eww.

17 Jul 2017 12:07:50
So you loved him for past junctures. Now after one playoff run youdont want him at this juncture. Ew? Sensationalize much?

18 Jul 2017 01:42:37
Hamburger you sound upset.

16 Jul 2017 23:19:49
Knicks get Brandon Knight,Solomon Hill and Jared Dudley

Rockets get Carmelo Anthony and Lance Thomas

Suns get Ryan Anderson and Omer Asik

Pelicans get Eric Bledsoe and Trevor Ariaza

17 Jul 2017 01:15:21
Why in the world would the Suns do that?

17 Jul 2017 01:19:30
Why would suns do this?

17 Jul 2017 04:03:11
Must be a pelicans fan

17 Jul 2017 06:14:45
Why would PHX do this? Easy answer is. they wouldn't. Move along, nothing to see here.

17 Jul 2017 18:38:50
Maybe if Phoenix gets the picks/ swap rights from all these teams for the next 6 years.

16 Jul 2017 19:13:17
Phi - Melo

NYK - okafor, bayless

I know Melo wants to go to Houston.

16 Jul 2017 20:02:24
At this point Melo doesn't want to be traded to a team other than Rockets or Cavs. Even if he extended his list I'm not sure Philly would be that high on his preferred list.

Melo in theory however wouldn't be a bad fit for 76ers who have room in the short term for a go-to scorer on the perimeter. They could afford to pay him for the remainder of his contract and I don't think he'd damage the development of their young players that much especially when you consider he'll improve their chances on advancing past first round in playoffs. Given the small price they'd have to pay relative to the offensive production Melo can still provide I think it would be well worth trading for him if he allowed it.

17 Jul 2017 20:26:20
i love this for NY

C Anthony could consider this, if the Houston trade fails.
Philly could make the Eastern finals, if they all stay healty

This is a scary team
SF:C Anthony

15 Jul 2017 17:06:55

14 Jul 2017 20:04:16
4 team trade that gets Melo to Houston

Rockets get Melo

Portland gets Anderson

Knicks get Meyers Leonard, Mo Harkless, Jon Henson, 1st from Milwaukee 2018

Bucks get Aminu, Taylor, Quarterman, Onuaku, Long. the last 4 are non guaranteed contracts.

This is trade machine approved. Rockets get Melo without giving up gordon or ariza.

Portland gets Leonard, Harkless, and Aminu off of the books while getting a good stretch 4.

Milwaukee gets rid of Henson's contract while getting a long athletic 3/ 4 who fits their mold and they get a lot of non-gauranteed contracts that they can cut.

Knicks would get a good big who can rebound/ block shots in henson. A big that can shoot in Leonard. And a sf replacement to go with the 1st from Mil.

14 Jul 2017 22:52:05
Send Henson to Phoenix for B. Knight

Salaries match

The Suns get their Rim Protector they need.

The Bucks get "Back" their combo PG/ SG in Knight they need.

NO need for D. Rose to come to Milwaukee,

Send Vaughn Along with Henson to Phoenix.

14 Jul 2017 23:08:12
Huge overpay for Portland and Milwaukee, but great deal for New York.

15 Jul 2017 02:50:33
The Dark Side has a default reply to every Bucks trade.

15 Jul 2017 03:41:37
This would leave the Knicks with five Centers, don't see it happening.

15 Jul 2017 14:30:47
@ adik, Simple, Everyone has the Bucks giving all their key Players for crap in return?
Here's one for you,

Vaughn from Milwaukee to
The Knicks for Porzingis,

Plus NY has to send their 1st Rd, Picks for the next 20 years!

Then again "adik" I do apologize for making sense! Enjoy your day!

14 Jul 2017 15:14:13
Bucks Rockets

Monroe and Vaughn for S/T D Rose and 2 2nd rd picks

14 Jul 2017 18:47:39
HAHA wait, so the knicks agree to do a sign and trade with an UFA in rose. in order to take back monroes waste of a contract. but in order to do that, the KNICKS have to give 2 second rounders?

am i missing something here? They have to pay to help out?

14 Jul 2017 22:55:43
Hi Mancerei000 Again, Nice try.

But The Bucks Still say NO!

14 Jul 2017 13:56:26
Sixers-knicks-rockets trade

Rockets gets carmelo anthony
Knicks gets jahlil okafor, nik stauskas and bayless
Sixers gets eric gordon and 2024 2nd pick.

14 Jul 2017 16:16:02
Money is no where close to being able to work.

14 Jul 2017 06:35:45

14 Jul 2017 12:50:28
Melo won't get bought out now that Phil's gone.

14 Jul 2017 22:57:38
So weird u have Galloway at sg and kennard at pg for pistons. also I don't see why Detroit takes on Anderson and has to give a pick. O Quinn and lee aren't bad but I'd like to see how boban plays this year. Idk if I like this trade.

15 Jul 2017 02:50:49
Explain to me why the Knicks would buy out Melo? Trade or let him play another season. Then trade next offseason! Please- I don't understand.

14 Jul 2017 03:04:26
Bleacher Report proposed offer where NYK gets Melo and MIL gets Anderson.
HOU gets: F Carmelo Anthony
MIL gets: F Ryan Anderson, second rounder (HOU)
BKN gets: C John Henson, G Rashad Vaughn, second rounder (HOU)
NYK gets: F Mirza Teletovic (two years remaining), G Joe Harris (expiring), C Spencer Hawes (expiring), G Tim Quarterman (non-guaranteed, F Shawn Long (non-guaranteed), 2018 top-20 protected pick from MIL, 2020 top 3 protected 1st from HOU

Makes a lot of sense. MIL gets the shooter in Parker's absence for two guys who don't play on the roster, shed Teletovic, and avoid the luxury tax, all for one protected 1st and they should be a definite playoff team. BKN just needs guys who might be able to play so taking a rim-protector in Henson and a 3pt shooter in Vaughn for nothing is worth a shot and getting an additional second rounder should seal that. Knicks take back one long term deal but get two late firsts and that might be all they can get for Melo considering the NTC he has. Rockets get their guy to try and contend for a title without giving up Gordon, Ariza, Capella, and more than one first so they are the winners.
