08:13 AM ET 09.09 | Another installment of Where Melo Turns. Carmelo Anthony still hopes to persuade the Denver Nuggets to trade him, preferably to either the Chicago Bulls or New York Knicks, an NBA source with knowledge of Anthony's wishes told Yahoo! Sports. The Knicks have limited assets to offer the Nuggets, which makes the Bulls a more appealing potential trade partner. The Bulls can offer a replacement small forward in Luol Deng, as well as two young forwards in James Johnson and Taj Gibson. New York officials would like to make a run at signing Anthony next summer if he were to opt to become a free agent. ... While Anthony would prefer a trade to either the Bulls or Knicks, he knows the Nuggets could decide to send him elsewhere.

That'd actually be pretty sweet if he signed with Chicago. Then there would be a legitimate 2nd superstar team to compete with Miami. Not saying this would be good for the league by any means, because it certainly wouldn't. I, however, am a proponent to all things anti-lebron/miami winning the championship...ever.

Looks like it's going to Chicago. Unless NY can finagle a 3 team type deal. Hey Melo, Dallas is a lovely city. You should give us a try.

Why would that be sweet? Personally I think it would be sweet if he came to NY. NY deserves to win just as much as Chicago. Screw Chicago. Come to NY.

LMFAO, Swing and a miss!!!

Melo will win more if he came to NY but the thing is Chicago's got more to offer Denver as we aren't willing to gut out our team so its up to Melo to decide if he wants to please himself or Denver... just stick it out there one more season or force Denver to trade you to the best city in the world...

Where is all the Chicago sarcasm, I guess the sarcasm is only directed towards the Knicks.

QUOTE(#18):

The consideration for Chicago is, while they have the pieces to trade for Melo, after trading them to get him, will the team still be as attractive for him to go to? I mean, Chicago is has good components now, but if you have trade them away for Melo, what's the point? If you're melo, why leave Denver to end up in the same spot?If I were in his position, I would stay put, play out my contract, and have free choice of where I go next season. If it's Chicago, so be it. But at least I'd go with the best pieces still on the team.

Well actually, it would be a team of him, Boozer, Noah, Rose, and ronnie brewer. I would think that is enough.

No he wouldn't, Chicago has a better cast then NY, besides Amare who does NY have?? Chicago's Rose, Booze and Noah adding Melo equals championship.
