Melo Watch: 2/20/11

As new stories develop on Melo or the trading deadline in general, they will be posted here.

– According to multiple sources, Mikhail Prokhorov met with Carmelo last night.  Melo didn’t commit to anything at the meeting, and the Nets didn’t seem thrilled at how the meeting went.

– Many sources are also reporting that Deron Williams wants to join the Knicks in 2012.  With Chris Paul also a free agent, the Knicks would have to pick one of the two.  It’s certainly a great problem to have.

– The rumor going around is that the Nuggets want Timofey Mozgov or another draft pick.  The Knicks are hesitant to add Mozgov.  Shelden Williams and Renaldo Balkman would come back to the Knicks to make the trade work.

Real GM says the Knicks would get back Anthony Carter, not Williams and Balkman.

– The Knicks said they have made their final offer and that it is now up to the Nuggets to pull the trigger on a deal.  Smart move by Dolan and Isiah.  Yeah, I just complemented Isiah Thomas and Jim Dolan.

– According to Alan Hahn, Mozgov is a deal breaker for New York. He is the difference between Melo being traded to the Knicks or to the Nets.

– Chris Broussard says no ultimatum has been given to the Knicks by Denver. So no Mozgov may not necessarily mean a trade to the Nets.
