Why do it:
If you are Chicago you are assembling an Elite group of four studs with Rose, Melo, Boozer, and Noah. People have
been right to say that Deng has been very good this year and he is a valuable member of this team, however we are
talking about Carmelo Anthony one of the top five players in the league, the bulls front office is crazy to not be all over
trying to get him. We also get a great role player in Martel Webster and a solid back up at PF in williams.
If you are Minnesota you are two great defenders on a team that has been poor to say the least. They also add a
player into their starting line up who will play great as a third scoring option behind beasley and kevin love. Adding
Deng could make them a legit team is Rubio ever joins and Flynn continues to develop. Not to mention a second
If you are Denver you get two solid bigs with potential to grow into starters with Taj and Asik (Not to mention they come extremely cheap). They also get two young guys with potential in brewer and jj. Plus two first round picks. To me this seems much better than the packages that New York and LA are offering.
The big question for me is "Are Gar Forman and John Paxson even pursuing a trade for Melo?" I know we have been having a great season this year and I am as excited as anyone, but to pass up on a chance to get a talent like Carmelo Anthony seems very foolish.
