Frankly, I'm a bit grateful that this Carmelo issue has come up at all. It makes for some interesting August discussion, especially as our city's baseball teams muck up the airwaves.
Reading through the recent posts, there is clearly a range of opinions about Melo, as reflected in various trade proposals. Of course, the trade has to work within the rules, so it appears that we have to include a big contract (Kaman or BD), even as Denver may not be particularly interested in either of them. Kaman is the name most commonly mentioned, but feel free to substitute Baron if you wish. The big question, then, is who else to include. I have tried to summarize the options below. Work your way down the list and tell us where your ceiling is.
