A Melo trade may be a matter of when

By Jared Zwerling

Sources are now saying it's no longer a matter of if the Nuggets trade Carmelo Anthony, but when, according to ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher. One front-office executive had this to say: “It’s almost a given they’re going to move him." Interestingly, the Nuggets had already been planning to ship their star forward out of Denver in June, when LeBron James was on the verge of shaking up the league (The Denver Post). At this point, the Nets and Clippers look to have the most attractive assets for the Nuggets (Yahoo! Sports), so the Knicks may want to think about adding another piece to their proposed trade package of Eddy Curry, Danilo Gallinari and a future first round pick. Could that include Wilson Chandler (Bleacher Report)?
