It almost feels like it's still the summer of 2010, with the media awaiting another version of "The Decision." Carmelo Anthony could have his own issue of People Magazine with all of the rumors written about him.
He says his wife La La Vasquez isn't in control, but it's actually made her relevant again. So who's really got the pants, 'Melo?
Anthony recently let it slip that he feels the Nuggets will deal him before the February trade deadline. He's made it clear that there are only a few location he wants to go to, but that hasn't stopped Denver's GM Masai Ujiri from talking to everyone around the NBA.
It's not confirmed, but he may have also contacted the Oakland Raiders as well.
With a talent like Anthony available, it makes sense that every other team would be returning Ujiri's calls. The real issue is who has the assets to send back to Denver while simultaneously being able to take on some larger contracts.
So who's got the best chance? And what kind of deal will they have to propose to secure the Melo Man?
Note: These are sample, two-team trades. Do not look at the proposed deals as the only trades available, as the real deal could easily incorporate three or more teams. These just happen to work financially and aesthetically.
