Pistons Pistons Interested In Carmelo?

Do the Detroit Pistons have eyes for Carmelo Anthony?

It's no secret NBA front-office executives have tried to measure if the Nuggets might actually be willing to part ways with the 24-year-old Anthony, despite assurances to his agent that Denver is not actively shopping the high-scoring forward on the trade market.

Look for the Pistons, who fell just short of reaching the NBA Finals for the third straight season, to be among the teams putting out feelers in regard to Anthony's availability, according to a league source.

In one of the few personnel blunders committed by Detroit general manager Joe Dumars, the Pistons took Darko Milicic with the No. 2 pick in the 2003 draft, allowing Denver to select Anthony.

If they still had Darko, straight up rofl. I actually don't think Denver would trade Melo unless you give a package including one of Detroits younger vets and Stuckey/Maxiell.

The basis is Carmelo for Billups. That works. Billups is from the Denver area, and it gives the Nugs the point guard they sorely need.
So, if Carmelo is the SF, what happens to Tayshaun? PF? Don't know how that would work. He'd be overpowered.

Melo's agent put a stop to this trade to Detroit talk yesterday:

Quote:
Carmelo Anthony's agent Calvin Andrews doesn't believe that the All-Star forward will be traded to the Pistons this offseason, according to MyFox Colorado.

“I would say nothing is happening. The Nuggets are not trading Carmelo,” said Andrews in an interview.

The Denver Post recently reported that Detroit may be interested in Anthony as Joe Dumars looks to shake things up in Michigan.

“People are interested in Carmelo. People are smelling blood. There are a lot of rumors out there, and a lot of talk is happening, so people feel like they got to get there bid in there too," Andrews added.
Slim chances that anything will happen with Anthony being dealt to Detroit.
