If Parker and Amar'e could remain healthy they'd def. get 50 wins with that sqaud. Especially since it's the east.

^why not try to get somethin for melo instead of him walking away next season leaving the nuggets empty handed?

Sorta like the yankees, they not gonna trade prospects for Cliff Lee when he's about to be a FA, and they can sign him instead of giving Seattle some prospects

but the nuggets are a playoff team why would they trade their cornerstone player?


the nuggets are on the verge of re-tooling their entire team...and they want to know if melo is going to be apart of that,or not.....if not...than they will trade him for probably cap space,draft picks,and or another superstar...doubtful they will get another superstar....so it's probably gonna be draft picks,expirings,and young players...

melo will go brooklyn nets before he go and f**k around on a team like the knicks. if there's no Tony Parker then you can bet there's no melo. Also gallo at pf? Lol that's weak as hell frontline if u got gallo at pf and stat at c.

I ain't hating on the knicks and hope they get tp along with Amare but I'm just saying it ain't easy to get done, especially when the knicks have a mess of a team. They need to begin with foundation before going at superstars like Melo.

Melo would have an expiring contract if he leaves. The Knicks have no superstars. And they barely have any talent, much less young talent, to offer a team like Denver.

if melo really wants to come to new york he can refuse a sign,and trade,and just tell denver what he wants,and any team that trades for him will know what's up....and saying we don't have young talent is not only ignorant,but idiotic....and denver won't be getting any superstars in return...we are coming out of the biggest superstar free agency ever....if melo is serious about coming to nyc then denver is in a precarious situation....

It would be different if Melo demanded a trade, but I don't see that happening with one year left on his deal. I don't see the incentive for Denver to trade him for any package the Knicks can put together.

we don't have to trade for him...we can just wait for him to come next year,and sign him outright....melo isn't going to demand a trade...he's just gonna play this year,and opt out,and sign with the knicks in 2011....which is what amare said melo was talking about to him...


the trade to whatever team would be for the benfit of the nuggets to try,and get something for melo as opposed to just letting him walk...but again that will be hard if melo wants to come to nyc,because he won't committ to any other team,and he has an opt out for 2011...so like i said before if melo doesn't sign this extension the nuggets are in a precarious situation potentially..

CLEVELAND -- Amar'e Stoudemire is already enjoying all New York has to offer, attending a Broadway show last night, taking in a Yankees game today and meeting with the Knicks tomorrow to potentially finalize a deal.
The Knicks chased hard after Stoudemire, feeling he was a better personality fit for New York than power forward Chris Bosh. The club felt Stoudemire, who spent part of his childhood in upstate Newburgh, had the mental toughness to play in New York -- something brass deemed vital.
Bosh had recently talked about being "a country boy" and saying it would be an adjustment with all the people.

"He's a different personality," a member of the Knicks brain trust said of Stoudemire. "He's very strong-minded and he's not going to back down from the challenge of playing in New York, especially if he's by himself as the lone star."
The Knicks hope Stoudemire's presence will attract another Yankee fan -- LeBron James. And Stoudemire talked last night on Broadway of hooking up with Carmelo Anthony and point guard Tony Parker, who are both 2011 free agents and could be traded.
Joe Johnson is also a possibility, though the odds are slim. Johnson is expected to make a decision today, is leaning strongly toward the Hawks.
Fitting pieces around Stoudemire is the next challenge even it's not James.
The Knicks met with sharpshooter Mike Miller in Santa Monica on Wednesday night and feel they have a good shot. With Parker tough to get, they want a point guard who can run the pick-and-roll with Stoudemire.
They feel Raymond Felton could be too pricey and would be happy with Luke Ridnour.
When Stoudemire becomes official, it would end the five-year era of David Lee, but set up a possibility of a sign-and-trade to add another piece. There's been rumors of a three-way trade talk between Golden State, Minnesota and the Knicks where Lee winds up with the Timberwolves, Monta Ellis comes to the Knicks and Al Jefferson goes to Golden State. Lee visited Minnesota yesterday and it has only $7 million in cap room, meaning he'd want a sign-and-trade.
The Knicks would also hope to have enough room to add a low-priced veteran center such as Kurt Thomas or Theo Ratliff, both high on their pivot list.
Because of Stoudemire's microfracture surgery and eye issues, his deal would be contingent on a physical. Stoudemire's contract already won't be insured for a career-ending knee or eye injury.
D'Antoni and Stoudemire had a complex relationship during their time in Phoenix as the coach thought the athletic power forward did not have a high basketball IQ or defensive instincts, according to a league source familiar with D'Antoni's thinking.
However, Stoudemire made first-team All NBA under D'Antoni and sent them deep into the playoffs.
"I love the coaching staff with Coach D'Antoni with Phil Weber, Dan D'Antoni, those guys I happen to grow a great friendship and relationship with," Stoudemire said on ESPN Radio in May.
However in March, Stoudemire said on Phoenix radio D'Antoni stunted his defensive growth.
"With us not really focused defensively and not teaching defense a lot of the finger pointing was towards me saying that I wasn't a good defensive player but I just was never taught defensive strategy so it really was kind of unfair to put the blame on me," Stoudemire said. "I think over time, it shows now that we are a better defensive team."
Stephon Marbury played with Stoudemire in Phoenix and once said: "He's a player who comes along once every 20 years."

CLEVELAND - After three days of talks with the top free agents in this summer's heralded crop, the Knicks' braintrust met at the team's Westchester practice facility Saturday to go over the results of the meetings and plan for what they hope will be a big week.

It appears that Amar'e Stoudemire could be one major catch. He arrived in New York last night to attend a Broadway show and celebrate the Fourth of July holiday with his family before he meets with the Knicks Monday.

Though there is a strong possibility that Stoudemire and the Knicks eventually will come to terms - teams can't officially announce signings until after the NBA moratorium lifts Thursday - a person with knowledge of the situation said nothing will be done with Stoudemire until Chris Bosh makes a decision.

Meanwhile, the Knicks have moved versatile sharpshooter Mike Miller , a Mike D'Antoni favorite, up on their priority list, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. But Miller, who met with the team Wednesday night in Los Angeles , likely won't be signed until Joe Johnson is officially out of play.

The Knicks have not given up on Johnson; a source close to the player said Johnson is "torn" and "still wavering" on whether he wants to re-sign with the Atlanta Hawks for a full max offer of six years and $119 million or take the Knicks' offer of five years, $92 million.

With this knowledge, the Knicks - and Stoudemire - are trying to talk Johnson out of it by suggesting how by playing in New York, he can make up most of the difference in the max offers and how he could be joined by a second star, such as his pal Stoudemire. Knicks representatives also are working Johnson over with the thought that if he signs with the Hawks, they'll be financially burdened by his contract and might not be able to keep a playoff-caliber team around him. Next summer, Al Horford and Jamal Crawford will be looking for new deals.

With the Knicks getting a sense that LeBron James may find it too difficult emotionally to leave Cleveland , they are making every effort to still come away with at least one piece, if not two, in free agency. At this point, Stoudemire seems to be one potential saving grace after two years of salary-cap dumping.

The Knicks are well aware of the risks that come with signing Stoudemire to a full maximum contract (five years, $92 million). Stoudemire recently had an MRI on his left knee, which underwent microfracture surgery in 2005, and the Knicks' medical staff will carefully review it.

The knee is a concern - it's the reason why the Phoenix Suns wouldn't fully guarantee the final two years of their four-year, $94-million offer, which Stoudemire rejected - but for the Knicks, it shouldn't be a deal-breaker, especially with the knowledge that Stoudemire might be the only player they'll get among the top free agents.

Stoudemire showed great durability this past season, playing in all 82 games. He is a fitness and diet fanatic and spends a great deal of time working on keeping the muscles around the knee strong. The Knicks love what the 6-10 Stoudemire can bring in length to a front line that could include 6-11 Danilo Gallinari and 7-foot Eddy Curry .

The lineup still needs guards, however, which is why the team's braintrust also spent Saturday discussing the next wave of free agents, who will start to come in once the team knows whom they have from the top group. Point guards Raymond Felton and Luke Ridnour are two players who will be targeted. Other options, such as a trade for Tony Parker , remains high on the priority list.

As for other trade scenarios, after the report in Saturday's Newsday about Carmelo Anthony 's uncertainty in signing a three-year, $86-million extension with the Denver Nuggets , a call was placed to the Nuggets. The Knicks were told that Anthony has a year to accept the offer and is not on the trading block. That could change if Anthony informs the team he wants to explore other options.

The Knicks also are clinging to faint hopes involving Bosh, though rumors persist that the All-Star power forward is almost certain to land in Miami and join Dwyane Wade . But there are no guarantees that Wade will re-sign with the Heat. In fact, he's had two meetings with the Bulls, including a hastily arranged sit-down Friday night at the Chicago -based office of his agent, Henry Thomas .

Wade could wind up with a shared-custody agreement with his ex-wife. Living in Chicago , where his two sons, his ex-wife and his mother live, could appeal to him.

Though it's probably mere posturing, Wade gave the Knicks good vibes during their meeting with him Friday in Chicago . A person with direct knowledge of that meeting said that when Wade was told the Knicks would build a team around him, he replied, "Just get me one player and I'll get you a ring."

The Dolan family owns controlling interests in the Knicks, MSG and Cablevision . Cablevision owns Newsday.
