Carmelo Anthony ‘Frustrated’ He Hasn’t Been Traded Yet

The Denver Post, through sources, reports that ‘Melo is upset because he’s still wearing a powder blue uniform: “The source said Anthony’s camp is getting increasingly frustrated that he has yet to be dealt, desirably to an East Coast team, notably New York or New Jersey. The source maintained Anthony would also agree to a trade with Chicago, but the Nuggets won’t make the trade unless it involves Joakim Noah. The source confirmed that it is highly unlikely Anthony agrees to a trade to Philadelphia or the Clippers. The Nuggets desire Nets rookie Derrick Favors in a trade — something that could happen down the line. The 19-year-old post player has struggled this preseason with recent shooting nights of 1-for-6, 3-for-9 and 0-for-5. But Favors’ upside is tremendous; he was the third pick in this summer’s draft.”

    the headline says Carmelo Anthony ‘frustrated’. The first line says “through sources”…which then goes to say “Anthony’s camp has grown increasingly frustrated”. So at no point did Carmelo actually come out and say he’s frustrated. It’s a ‘source’…talking about ‘the camp’. This thread is ‘wack’.

    I guess he holds all the cards, as nobody will trade for him unless he signs an extension, and he won’t do it unless he’s being traded to a preferred destination. I think he should wait it out and sign as a free agent with either NY or Chicago next year. But don’t rush to get traded to New Jersey. That team is worse than Denver. His goal should be to form a ‘big 3′ with Amare and Chris Paul in NY, or with Boozer and Rose in Chicago, otherwise he will never make it past Miami.

    Translation: LaLa Vazquez ‘frustrated’ her man hasn’t been traded somewhere that fits her every need.

    I think its safe to say that “Carmelo Anthony’s camp” actually means “Carmelo Anthony’s wife”. I hate whenever they use the word “camp” in that context

    Wait, I thought he never asked for a trade, so why is he frustrated? lol. The punk behavior trend continues.

  • slamfan4life

    He’ll prolly end up in LA with the Clippers or in New Jersey, I’m still praying he comes to Chi for lou and some draft picks but oh well

    Wish Melo the best wherever he goes

  • http://bulls.com Harry Twatter

    He will be in Chicago if Favors continue to blow and if the Nets start out 1-17

  • http://yahoo ddub

    Deng,Johnson, and a first rounder,,He is kidding rt?Deng stays injured and hasnt improved in three years,New Jersey is a good fit,w/ a legit 7fter,that can play,Avery Johnson, and an owner who is willing to spend.

    Amen Enigmatic. They should take it, @ ddub such a hater


    Why do the the Nuggets give a damn what Carmelo wants or where he prefers to be traded to??? Last I’d heard, the only guys in the League with a no-trade clause were Kobe and Dirk.


    I will love to see Carmelo in Magic uniform…i want him and dwight to try and challenge my HEAT…WHAT A GREAT YEAR UP AHEAD…HEAT 2011 CHAMPS…

    Heat won’t even make the Finals cuz of LeBron and Bosh, and even if they did make it to the 2011 Finals, Lakers will Beat the Heat for a 3-Peat :o
