Or more importantly, is there anyone Denver can get that will help them keep Melo next summer?
J.R. Smith should go to Dallas.
No, there's nothing that could keep Melo in Denver in my honest opinion.
hornest they need a shooter and his one! maybe they cant get him to play defence
they should see who they could get from the timberwolves.
he would do great with the twolves for the next couple years. they need a go to guy bad.
maybe they could get pekovic but probly not. maybe brewer along with a pick, would be a good fit for denvers style of play.
Not trying to sound like a Homer, but it's been mentioned that if the Rockets could trade Martin, Battier, Patterson, & Jefferies/Hill for 'Melo & Smith it'd work out great for both teams.
JR could backup Lee as the 6th man & supposebly Rick has a history of getting the best out of questionable players. (See Bonzi & Ron most recently)
Someone earlier mentioned trading him for Rudy Fernandez. I suck at thinking of trade ideas and figuring out the cap, salaries, etc etc, but that sounds like a good idea

where did you read that?
Birdman, Martin, and JR Smith for Gortat, Carter, Stanley Robinson and Bass
Gortat - Bass - Butch
Nene - Harrington - Balkman
Mello - Robinson - Karl
Carter - Afflalo - Karl
Billups - Lawson
D12 - Birdman - Orton
Martin - Lewis - Anderson
Pietrus - Lewis - Richardson
Smith - Reddick - Richardson
Nelson - Williams - Duhon
Magic aren't trading Carter to Denver unless they're getting Melo back.
I see him being a great fit next to 'Reke and Cousins in Sac. penetrating scoring combo guard in Evans, big dominant post scorer in Cousins, I just see an explosive shooting/slashing 2 guard like JR would be a perfect fit. Send Denver something like Cisco & Donte Greene for him. thoughts?
