The New York Knicks remain Anthony’s preferred destination, but Nuggets general manager Masai Ujiri has told Knicks president Donnie Walsh that his team doesn’t have the a.ssets Denver wants. When Walsh has asked Ujiri to provide him with a list of the Nuggets’ desires, whether it be draft picks or specific players from other teams, sources said Ujiri has been unresponsive.
All that proves is the Nuggets unwillingness to give in and deal Melo to the Knicks. I can understand if you're not interested in what the Knicks have to offer; but when Walsh asks for exactly what they're looking for (so he could work on meeting their demands), and the Nuggets FO won't be cooperative in reply...then its obvious they are dealing out of spite.
This again is another situation in which if the Knicks aren't to land the player they covet....they "lost" according to everyone on this site, when they were never in any position to "win" (same case with LeBron).
