Can the addition of Iggy bring Carmelo to the Warriors ? (Update at the bottom)

First of all, I just want to make it clear that I'm not a Monta hater.  I am not in favor of trading Monta unless getting a better player in return...


So I think we all agree that Iguoadala is one of the players that are better than Monta and would make sense to go after at Monta's expense.  So if the Warriors were lucky enough to convince the sixers in a trade of Monta + pick for Iggy, that will result in a lineup of Curry/Iggy/Wright/Lee/Biedrins, pretty darn good already and most likely a playoff team I would say.


If the chemistry develops and the Warriors somehow get deep in the playoffs, would the bay area look as a desirable place for Carmelo to join ?  I personally think Carmelo will not go to the Knicks if he wants to win a championship, CP3 is under contract and will not be traded so Tony Parker is the only player available for them.  A big 3 of Parker, Melo and Amare is far from getting it done.  The only team that would present an issue is Denver, if Carmelo were to choose between Denver and GS, what would he choose ? going back to join billups/k mart/Nene who are solid but hasn't worked in the past OR get a fresh new start and join Curry/Iggy/Lee for a shot at the ring ?


Can you imagine of a lineup like:

PG: Curry

SG: Iguodala

SF: Anthony

PF: Lee

C: Biedrins


Can the new owners make this happen?......



ESPN: Anthony, Nuggets are likely to part


This article just came in on ESPN and mentions that all the signals from Anthony are that he would like to be in a different uniform this season.

I know it is close to impossible of this 3 way trade happening but what would you guys think about this:

 Philly gets:

Vlad Radmanovic

Kenyon Martin

Charlie Bell


Denver gets:

Elton Brand

Monta Ellis

Dan Gadzuric


GS gets:

Andre Iguodala

Carmelo Anthony


Philly get a good player in Kenyon Martin AND get rid of Elton Brand's contract

Denver get some value for Carmelo before he departs himself leaving them with nothing.  Monta would provide them the scoring and Brand the lost post threat

GS competes for the championship !!
