Melo to the Lakers???

Filed under: Uncategorized — sleonardo3 @ 11:41 am

Just was browsing through ESPN and this article just was written by Broussard. What do u guys think? I mean trading Bynum for Melo looks like someone wants to match the talent in South Beach.


Broussard’s Article:

The Denver Nuggets have had preliminary discussions with the Los Angeles Lakers on a Carmelo Anthony trade, league sources told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard on Tuesday.

For more news, notes and analysis of the Lakers, check out the Land O’ Lakers blog from the Kamenetzky Brothers. Blog

The Lakers’ package would be built around center Andrew Bynum. Denver has no interest in Ron Artest and isn’t particularly interested in Lamar Odom either, sources said. A straight-up deal of Bynum for Anthony works financially, but there could be other players involved since Denver would look to shed more salary if possible.

Sources described the talks as in their infancy, and a three-way deal between the Knicks, Nuggets and Wolves is very much alive.

Bynum is averaging 11.3 points and 7.4 rebounds per game in 27 games this season as he works his way back from injury. In five full seasons with Los Angeles, Bynum has averaged only 56 games per season due to injuries.

Anthony is coming off a 50-point, 11-rebound outing Monday, but the Nuggets lost to the Rockets.



  1. Saw this today but one for one trade would be horrible for Denver. Bynum has history of injury and to give up that much money for one guy is extremely dangerous…would be a dumb move…Still think NY will step up and make a crazy offer…they want the flash to bad to match the HEATs flash this summer…Bring back the HEAT vs Knicks of the 90’s

  2. Hi. Congratulations on getting started on a sports blog, it’s definitely the wave of the future. Have fun with it and keep at it, you might consider doing some posts that are not published but allow you to experiment, see what works and doesn’t work and find your voice.
    One suggestion I have is that whenever you mention someone in a blog, story, etc., is to refer to them by their full name on first reference. Chris Broussard is about as well known as anyone, but it’s important to state who he is and who he works for (and you can end a sentence with a preposition!). So, ESPN NBA reporter Chris Broussard, is the way to go, just like Hurricanes coach Al Golden, etc.
    Finally, listen to your professor. She’s a great writer and has worked extremely hard to get to this point in her career. Best of luck to you and I look forward to reading more from you in the future.

  3. Horrible trade for the Lakers- benches our best defender Artest and leaves us with no bigman depth- the key to our deep postseason runs…even if Chris Anderson came with Melo in a separate trade for a TPE.
