Carmelo Anthony on the block: What should the Bobcats trade to get him?

New, comments

We've been down the Carmelo Anthony rabbit hole before, but let's revisit it one more time. The SBN Nuggets blog, Denver Stiffs, has offered to evaluate whatever offers we might come up with for 'Melo against offers from blogs of teams mentioned in the Yahoo! report stating 'Melo wants out, so let's come up with an offer to send them. Check it with the Trade Machine.

As much as I hesitate to do it, in order to get Anthony, I think we'd have to start with Gerald Wallace and go on from there. In sum, the two separate trades (in order to trade Dampier):

CARMELO for CRASH and MOHAMMED

and

J.R. SMITH and BIRDMAN for DAMPIER

Basically, if they want Wallace and Dampier's contract, they have to give us more than 'Melo, and without getting a third team involved I don't see a permutation that works without including J.R. Smith and Chris Andersen. Heaven knows if they'd actually want Nazr Mohammed, but I think they'd want Boris Diaw less. He can be subbed in if you think that'd be more attractive to Denver.

What do you think?
