This article reports that it is believed that Melo will not be on Nuggets this year. Of course they only bring up New York, but it is ultimately Denver's choice where they trade him. Where else could Melo wind up at besides NY? Melo is also selling his house in Denver.

I honestly never understood why New York never set their sights on 'Melo to begin with, rather than delude themselves into thinking that LeBron would sign with them. I really think the MSG faithful would have been happier welcoming a Syracuse alum (and champion) home than bringing in LeBron.

The Denver season is going to be very interesting. If they get off to a really slow start (and with the losses they've had this offseason, there's no reason to believe their window hasn't closed), they might jettison Anthony by the trade deadline.

But here's where reality, once again, rears its ugly head. Even if Denver's out of it by the trade deadline and Stoudemire actually has the Knicks contending for the playoff spot, what can the Knicks offer? New York has ZERO first round picks until at least 2013 and I can't see anyone on the roster that Denver would be interested in. That T-Mac gamble backfired on them hard and they've got next to zilch in terms of trade chips. When you can't give equal value for someone of Anthony's talent, the idea is to give future picks and young talent. The Knicks have neither. The only thing they really have to offer is Eddy Curry's contract and I can't imagine that getting them too far.

I'll buy Anthony in New Orleans before I buy him donning a Knicks uniform. Hell, I'd buy Anthony in CLEVELAND before I buy him in New York.
