Just read the rumors, Melo for Favors and Murphy, that practically kills what makes the NJ a possible contender with Melo. Then there is a possibility of losing Harris too? The team will be left with Melo and Lopez with Farmar.
One possible deal which I want to see happen is with the Clippers. Oh hell yeah!!!!
A late, longshot entry into the Melo sweepstakes could be the Clippers, according to two people with knowledge of the situation. Besides young players, the Clippers have everything the Nuggets want: 1) cap relief (L.A. is $5 million under the cap and thus could save Denver $10 million when accounting for luxury-tax savings in a lopsided deal); 2) draft picks (L.A. has Minnesota's 2011 first-round pick, which is unprotected in 2012); and 3) the large market Anthony craves (his offseason home is in L.A., and his wife, La La Vasquez, certainly approves).
A Clippers deal could be further sweetened with center Chris Kaman, who could either be a keeper or a trade chip with a $12.7 million expiring contract next season.
It looks like his points of interest is still NJ or NY, his hometown.
