Rumor: Nuggets reject Knicks’ offer of Chandler, Fields, Curry, and pick for Melo’?
ESPN Radio reported Friday that the Nuggets rejected an offer for Carmelo Anthony from the Knicks that included Chandler, Fields , Eddy Curry and a first- round pick.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Complicated is the only way to describe the Carmelo Anthony saga.
Two days after the New Jersey Nets announced they were pulling out of the Anthony sweepstakes, the Denver Nuggets reportedly turned down the New York Knicks’ offer of Wilson Chandler, Eddy Curry, Landry Fields, and a first round draft pick.
The Knicks’ offer does contain an expiring contract (Curry), two nice young players (Chandler and Fields), and a first-round pick; however, the Nuggets reportedly want multiple first round draft picks and a blue-chip prospect for Anthony.
If true, the Nuggets miscalculated. The Nets easily had the best offer: ‘Team Russia’ was willing to part with Troy Murphy’s expiring pact, multiple first round draft picks, blue-chip talent Derrick Favors, and combo guard Devin Harris.
Instead of being greedy and holding out for more from the Nets, perhaps the Nuggets should have made a deal. Now the Nets are out. And now the Anthony saga has become, you guessed it, complicated.
