Melo won't be Traded before Camp




This is good news for Nuggets fans. If it's true, b/c obviously it should only be taken with a grain of salt but it looks like Denver's new FO isn't stupid and won't trade Melo. Basically, according to Broussard, Denver didn't like any offers (and they shouldn't) and are gonna try to convince Melo to stay with their play and potentially trading for another star (YAY!!!) and that Denver would only trade Melo for Lopez (and NJ wouldn't do that b/c without Lopez, Melo doesn't re-sign). Then he talks about how it's crazy not to trade Noah for Melo b/c it's not like you can pay Rose, Boozer, Melo and Noah. Finally (this is obvious) NY can't trade for him due to a lack of picks (and IMO, lack of enough young talent).

Also I think once Melo gets back with the team, he'll realize he truly doesn't want to go (if he ever wanted).

I'm not gonna lie, this made me so happy. I know you shouldn't listen to ESPN, but if Chris is writing about Melo potentially staying, it wouldn't help them get views/reads... so he wouldn't say it unless he was told this. Also this is pretty much saying what I've been (and some other Stiffs readers, while the majority panicked and lost faith in Melo/ Denver's FO competence) saying, Denver shouldn't be pressured into trading Carmelo b/c they won't get any value for him now and they have so much leverage b/c he won't leave that money on the table. Pretty much, you heard it here first (well actually in my other posts/comments) but Carmelo is going to stay in Denver for a while.
