Knicks’ James Dolan Personally Negotiating Carmelo Deal?

According to the NY Daily News, Donnie Walsh’s boss has taken it upon himself to see if he can get Carmelo Anthony in a Knicks uniform prior to the trade deadline: “Garden chairman James Dolan is taking a more active role in the Knicks’ pursuit of Carmelo Anthony and has had direct negotiations with Denver Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke, the Daily News has learned. According to a source familiar with the negotiations, Dolan’s decision to become more involved in the Anthony trade talks is a sign that the Knicks are closing in on a deal for the All-Star forward. ‘And I would also think that at this point everyone is looking to take credit if Carmelo comes to New York,’ said one Knicks source. It is not uncommon for owners to negotiate trades and in fact it is a common practice with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov had planned to meet Anthony face-to-face before the Russian held a press conference to announce the Nets were no longer attempting to trade for Anthony.”

    I’m sick of these Melo rumors. Can’t believe that he is (and to his credit) playing so extremely well through all of this.

    Denver should have made the Knick deal immediately after Carmelo said he’s not going to New Jersey. It’s the only team that can offer a decent package, and now that NY knows they have no better offers they can hold back on them.

    I guess that means no Carmelo in NY.

    Maybe he promised that LaLa could front his band.

    and jamal crawford and zach randolph ya’ll…If isiah was there none of this talk would be happening because he would be coveting OJ Mayo or some other winner who was just in a bad place…this is the worst news I’ve heard yet regarding Melo to the knicks (from a knicks fan p.o.v). If there was ever a destination that really sells itself beyond it’s terrible owner it’s NY.

    How you know Melo’s not coming to the Knicks now…. Friggin Dolan.

    Part of the deal is Melo gets his own Escalade with his own intern. Holla!
