Marcellus on sportsnation (tv) right now claims this trade will occur within 2 weeks.

He also referred to the Celtics as "new England" so I'm not sure


Also:
Begley/ESPN:
The Milwaukee Bucks emerged as a potential third team in discussions centered on a trade of Carmelo Anthony from the New York Knicks to the Houston Rockets.

The name of Jabari Parker came up in those preliminary talks. It is unclear whether the Knicks or Bucks broached the idea of Parker in a package that includes a larger contract such as John Henson or Greg Monroe.

Parker is eligible for a contract extension and could become a restricted free agent in 2018. Parker is recovering from another torn ACL.

The Knicks remain committed to acquiring a combination of young player, draft pick or expiring contract in exchange for Anthony.

"The one guy"?  :o

Why hasn't it happened if the trade is there. They can't find anyone to eat the bad contract that the Knicks refuse to take on for dropping Melo, that hasn't changed. Portland is willing to eat Anderson but they need someone to eat their own bad contract so it doesn't actually help at all.

I don't know about Houston but it seems like Carmelo really really wants to play there and pretty much isn't open to playing anywhere else. Given that, he probably starts willing to accept less and less money in a buyout as time goes on and eventually reach an agreement with Knicks if the trade can't be worked out.

That'd be yet another team with a legit shot of being worse than the Nets.

It's easy to confuse what "is" with what "ought to be," especially when what "is" has always worked out in your favor.

Melo will hog the ball and kill the chemistry between the other 2 ball hogs.

If he plays the way he does in the Olympics he won't.  Plus at his age it's the right time to be a 2nd or 3rd option pushing his mid 30s.

Marcellus is a joke. There are times during my "55 minutes to go 8 miles" drive home that I have to turn the channel on his show and listen to Glenn Beck.

Yes.

But Begley from espn has report about jabari parker  included in discussions

The Milwaukee Bucks emerged as a potential third team in discussions centered on a trade of Carmelo Anthony from the New York Knicks to the Houston Rockets.

The name of Jabari Parker came up in those preliminary talks. It is unclear whether the Knicks or Bucks broached the idea of Parker in a package that includes a larger contract such as John Henson or Greg Monroe.

Parker is eligible for a contract extension and could become a restricted free agent in 2018. Parker is recovering from another torn ACL.

The Knicks remain committed to acquiring a combination of young player, draft pick or expiring contract in exchange for Anthony.
