Melo to New York Talks Heating Up?

According to several media outlets, there has been common belief that Carmelo Anthony still has New York up high in his wishlist. Their package allegedly consists of Eddy Curry's expiring contract, recently acquired forward Anthony Randolph, and a future first round pick from a third team. The Knicks have also kept the door open regarding the possibility of a Danilo Gallinari trade.

New York is confident that a deal could be reached anytime sooner or later. Denver is starting to soften their trade stance, and are now poised to entertain negotiations regarding a potential deal.

There have been whispers that both front offices have already exchanged internal discussions -- mostly focused on Anthony Randolph. The New York media claims that Denver aren't pursuing Derrick Favors anymore. Favors was the centerpiece of a four-way deal that would've brought Anthony to the Nets. A move to New Jersey now appears to be unlikely.

It has also been noted that current Knicks star Amar'e Stoudemire, who signed with the team back in July, appears to be pushing for a deal that would see him pair up with Anthony in the Big Apple.

This may only be the start of big things to come forth soon, though. It appears that New York would also push hard for Hornets All-Star guard Chris Paul, who would become a free agent in 2012. The Knicks' best case scenario would be netting both Paul and Anthony -- pairing him up with Stoudemire. It is believed that all three had already talked about the possibility of teaming up in New York to form a dream team, much similar to that of Miami's. (Which in case you didn't know, consists of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh)

For now, Anthony is poised to start his season in Colorado. The possibility of re-signing with Denver still remains open despite the heated trade rumors coming out from the media. Anthony is believed to be keeping all of his options open and wants to exercise his flexibility as wisely as possible.

All hypothetical fantasy proposals, ideas, and questions have yet to face clear answers. Is Melo staying in Denver after all? Will Chicago come out from nowhere and grab him? Can the Memphis Grizzlies shock the basketball world and put up a proposal that would net him? Only time will tell.
