The Houston Rockets are aggressively pursuing Carmelo Anthony with an offer centered around Kevin Martin and at least one of the draft picks acquired in a trade with the New York Knicks last season. Look like the Knicks should had hold on to there draft picks. It would make  Donnie Walsh look real bad if this deal go down. The Knicks suppose to build for the future of the franchise. This draft pick could cost getting Carmelo Anthony in a Knicks uniform. Kevin Martin is young, talented, and capable. A year ago, Martin was the face of the rebuilding Sacramento Kings.The Nuggets want much more players or picks from the Kings. The Knicks have no draft picks or players to make a trade with the Nuggets. So the offers for Melo are heating up. The Nuggets are sitting pretty for now.
