Bucks getting Anderson to replace a bad contract in Henson and the injury risk in Parker.

Houston gets Melo


The end

Dont know if it doable, but I like your idea better than mine. Although getting one first round pick, let alone two, and Parker would be tough. Maybe if Melo was entering his prime. Someone would probably have to send a pick(s) to the Bucks.

And this guy was active back when it appeared Melo was going to the Rockets. Not sure if there is anything to this. I haven't seen it confirmed anywhere else.
The same guy who was dead wrong previously. Wake me up when Wojo reports something.

From Yahoo...

Carmelo Anthony trade talks between the Rockets and Knicks are still going nowhere.


But with Anthony’s welcome worn out in New York, the teams keep searching for a third to facilitate a deal – like the Bucks, who have Jabari Parker.

Ian Begley of ESPN:

The Knicks have told people around the league recently that Houston simply doesn’t have anything that appeals to them.
The Milwaukee Bucks emerged as a potential third team at one point, per league sources, but there was no traction toward a deal.
One name that came up in those (very) preliminary talks? Bucks forward Jabari Parker, per league sources.
Maybe, after two ACL injuries, Parker’s value has fallen enough that he could be included in an Anthony trade. But Parker is just entering the fourth year of his rookie-scale contract, and he’s in line to become a restricted free agent next summer. Milwaukee can be patient with him.

Houston probably must trade Ryan Anderson to send out enough salary to get Anthony, and nobody wants Anderson. Some vague ideas of Parker might interest New York, but what gets the Bucks on board?

Anthony will likely begin the season with the Knicks, and it seems he’s preparing himself accordingly.

this guy miss two full seasons, and totally considered injury prone and you would be fine with this...smh

If Parker can stay healthy for a full season, make a competitive offer. Nothing outrageous, considering his injuries. No first round picks.

exactly. And it depends on the other pieces. Do the Knicks get salary relief?

Parker is 22 and a fantastic scorer. ACL is an easy comeback. 100x better than other knee issues. He's had 2 so its obviously a red flag but its a great time to buy low and your giving up something thats a not a permanent part of the franchise.

Pho took a chance on an often injured Steve Nash. How did that work out? I can name others. Its about cost more than anything.

Bucks need shooting and get rid of a contract like Henson hence the following trade proposal that works numbers wise:

Rockets get: Melo & John Henson

Bucks get: Ryan Anderson, Eric Gordon, & Kyle O'Quinn

Knicks get: Jabari Parker, Greg Monroe (expiring), 4 non-guarantee contracts from Rockets.

While we're at it, I'll also include Courtney Lee for Trevor Ariza's expiring contract.

Steve Nash played in 82, 82, and 78 games in the three season prior to Phoenix reacquiring him. Parker tore two ACLs and couldn't complete two out of his three seasons in the league. No similarity between Nash and Parker. However, I agree, I would take a chance on him to move Melo.

Crazy trade proposal:

Houston
Melo
C. Lee
Kyle O'Quinn

Detroit
Ryan Anderson
John Henson
Trevor Ariza

Milwaukee
Andre Drummond
Eric Gordon
D. Jackson

Knicks
Greg Monroe
Jabari Parker
Clint Capela
Ish Smith
Stanley Johnson

Will never happen but it works according to ESPN trade machine. A lot of bodies moving.

I think Rockets would ask for Tedletovic(spell) instead of Henson. Since they have Clint, Black, Nene. Ted gives them more balance.

If. Bucks are willing to spend the money could work since Gordan and Anderson fills needs and balances their roster. Gives them needed scoring punch as well. Houston would have to give up a draft pick to Bucks though probably.

If they were willing to give up Gordon, they could do a deal without Anderson.

So why haven't they?

Chris Paul had issues with both knees, menicus issues, I believe, around 2010. Different injury, but it shows that there are some risks worth taking, if the price is right. Teams were wondering if Paul was damaged goods back then. Not looking for a repeat of the Rose trade however.

Honestly doubt the Bucks would send out Parker for Ryan Anderson, even if they get to dump Henson - but if they do I would be all over that. I was sad to see him get hurt so often, and still want this kid to succeed.

I'm trying to figure which poster in this thread is smoking the largest size crack rock. I'm talking Pookie aka Chris Rock in New Jack City type crack addiction here.

IF, and that's a massive fantasyland IF, the Bucks were willing to trade Parker and only take back something like Anderson and Gordon, why wouldn't the Rockets TAKE PARKER THEMSELVES?

IF, and this is a huge IF, the Knicks had Drummond or Parker, would you want to trade them for Ryan Anderson? So why should the Bucks in real life?

IF, and this is a huge IF, Parker was on the trade block, the Knicks offer would have to be the best offer out of ALL THE REST OF THE 28 TEAMS IN THE LEAGUE

If you propose a trade that you wouldn't take yourself if the shoes were reversed, there is no reason why the other team in real life would do the deal either. Trades that are likely to happen equate something around "Win/Win" or the perception of it. Getting Jabari Parker and some firsts for Melo's aging corpse and bloated contract is basically trade rape.

Of course as a Knicks fan, I've love to see the Knicks totally horsef**k other teams over, again and again, in trades that pretty much blow up the other team and make the Knicks better. That's a nice thought. But it's NOT REALITY.

In real life, in real pro sports, in real front office scenarios, the guys who keep offering **** bird type trades are guys who don't get their calls returned. Because it's insulting. It's saying "I think you are stupid enough to do this deal and get yourself fired and have your kids starve"

Since you came on this board you have been way off in regards to trade value. - Briggs 7/28/2015

Disagree. Like Parker. He had a lot of potential and could dedinately ball. BUT...While it may be true that an ACL is something "some" players may have been able to overcome. As you said, TWO is quite risky. Especially on the SAME knee. Parker also has just 2 years remaining. So we would be trading for a guy that we would have to nurse back to health slowly just in time for him to leave. Hope the Knicks front office is smart enough to avoid yet another injury prone player.
Imo, the additional pieces that we would get, make or break the deal. So far, Monroe and Henson have been the only ones mentioned. Both make no sense for us. Noah and Willy play center, and are not going anywhere, KP plays power forward, so Henson would be a back up with $31M left on his deal. It also seems strange that the bucks would be willing to give up those players and only take back Anderson? Because I dont think Houston is giving bup Gordon.

Seems like yet another fabricated and unrealistic rush to get rid of Melo for a move that does not help the future.

Melo Haters = Lin lovers who are mad Houston paid so much for his 15 Minutes,
