I hope the Nets gets Melo. Have Melo sign the extension and trade him to the Nets.

Go Brooklyn in 2012 or 2013!!

Weird. I figured for sure with NY willing to give up a few fair pieces the Net's would be outta this thing. Good news is things look like there going to finish up either way, regardless if it's with the Net's or Knicks.

I guess they want an actual answer "from the horses mouth."

Btw this should've been done a while ago, cuz NJ could've just been wasting pretty much the entire season's worth of time on trying to make a deal for him.


But seriously, I honestly can't see Melo saying he'd sign there. It just doesn't make sense. I understand that a player would want money, but if it's about money, why not just take it in Denver (or even a few other teams in the NBA).

Lopez is the only positive thing here once Favors and Harris are gone. I bet getting Melo really boosts Lopez's game though. Takes off a lot of pressure.

But it could be possible that Denver convinced Melo to just meet with NJ to make NY sweat a bit. I think Melo doesn't want to go, but Denver is trying to up NY (or a rental team)'s offer by making it appear they have other options. Then again if we find out that Melo says flat out NO to Prok then NY isn't as pressured (although they still have to make a legit offer, unlike what some arrogant Knicks fans think COUGH- KNicksfever2010- COUGH b/c Denver could just hold onto Melo and hope for the extension to be signed or a franchise tag)

Maybe Dr. P doesn't even want Melo anymore and is just trying to cripple the Knicks by making em sweat it out. Maybe he wants them to sweeten the pot for Denver. This is a billionaire with a huge ego after all.

WoJo tweeted on Hoopsworld that the Nets and Nuggets sense a bit of dysfunction in the Knicks and perhaps plan to capitalize on it. Maybe the Knicks are fighting among themselves and are not sure what they want to do.

But, as a fairly good poker player, it looks to me like the Nets are ready to call the Knicks hand and raise the bet quite substantially.

From what I've heard, the Nets have no idea whether or not Melo is willing to extend with them. They can only go by whatever Denver tells them. And I'm guessing Denver's been telling them Melo will probably re-sign if traded to NJ. Now, NJ wants to hear it from Melo.

Yeah, they already have a backup detail for Murphy and supposedly Harris. I don;t think they would waste their time.

Maybe Prok sees the Knicks as rivals (he most likely does, remember the billboard in the summer) and knows if his team plays along it keeps driving up the Knicks offer so he's weakening the opponent and at the same time if he feels that Melo is considering New Jersey/ Brooklyn, then he's gonna try to convince him b/c they need a superstar like Melo.
