Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony has made it known he would like to be traded. The usual teams with the best pieces to make a trade with Denver have been the New York Knicks and the New Jersey Nets.
However, read this tidbit from Peter Vescey at the NY Post:
I’m admittedly slow on the uptake, but Anthony gave me the impression he’s singularly interested in playing for a team in the habit of inhabiting first place and bedding championships — you know, like the Lakers, Celtics and Spurs.
So, I was not all that surprised when Anthony revealed to The Post he has not expunged any of those three teams from his bottomless pit of gaping options.
For as much as San Antonio Spurs fans would love to have Anthony on board, chances are slim he will ever wear the black and silver. Granted the Spurs would have the players to make a trade with Denver (such as George Hill, DeJuan Blair, Richard Jefferson, etc.) but would the Spurs trade away their future or bring in a malcontent? I think not.
In the end take it with a grain of salt seeing how this probably will never happen.
