Early on when Carmelo was discussing his destination of preference as to where he would like to be traded , Carmelo mentioned the Golden State Warriors. Since then Ive watched New York and New Jersey take the lead in the so called Carmelo sweepstakes Or as ESPn is calling it " the indecision" (of course referencing to the whole Lebron Saga over the summer) . New jersey at the moment is the favorite to land carmelo according to countless reports from Espn.com and Si.com But i Believe that Carmelo still has great reservations about being shipped over to the Jersey shore . New York is Carmelos top choise but the knicks have very few bargaining chips to work with Denver to land the all-star ( Hows that cap clearing Method working out for you Donnie). Would it just be crazy for me to think that the warriors who are the preferred Team over the Nets and who in my opinion have the assets to get a deal done with the nuggets, can still pull out this so called "Forgone conclusion". As a warriors fan ive watched as our organization has been in supposed done deals only to see them not go throw ,most recently Joe lacob buying the warriors away from ellison at the 11th hour , Amar c coming over to the warriors on draft night only for the deal to fall out. My point is nothing is done till its done. Of course we would have to give up players that ive loved watching but that is the nature of the business .
Monta ellis , D. Wright to Denver
A. Biedrins B. wright to 76ers
Carmelo Anthony , Elton Brandon to Warriors
Why i think the teams go for it Denver gets i elite player and a very good role player while saving money
Why 76ers go for this trade Known fact that they are trying to clean their hands of Elton's contract they get a decent Center with a more flexible contract and a promising young player who if they choose not to keep has expiring contract
warriors get A all-star potential franchise changer player and a center who when motivated is a great player as well.
Nothing against Monta but with curry still being on the rookie salary and the money we would take in he of the the two duo was the only player to make the money work on this deal. Honestly though i feel like both stephen and monta want to get away from the questions that everyone is asking if they can play together especial Steph i can see it on his face ,Monta is having a great year but he is taking the role of point guard, the postion that Steph was supposed to have.
Trade works on the Espn machine and says warriors increase win total by 8 games Denver has no change and 76ers lose 8 although its more of a money saving move for them.
When else are we gna get a chance to get a player like this. Clippers are getting better suns are down so are the blazers lets make something happen
starting 5 for warriors
Elton,D.lee, Carmelo,Curry, Reggie Williams
