Big Names Named as Trade Bait Already
(Boulder-CO) Aaron Lopez and Chris Tomasson of The Rocky Moutain News have produced a blog entry where they (I'm not sure which one) state, "A source close to the situation called Camby the most likely of Denver's five big-salaried players (Allen Iverson, Carmelo Anthony, Kenyon Martin and Nene being the others) to be traded."
I expect this to be just one of many rumors that start to trickle out concerning one of the aforementioned getting traded. My feeling is that Carmelo is safe. Despite off the court concerns, he's too young and talented to just ship out of town this early in his career. Now, AI and his huge expiring contract could just as easily be shipped as Camby, but I highly doubt either Kenyon Martin or Nene, and their sizable salaries, are actually tradeable.
Tomasson also outlined the Nuggets roster, contract, and salary situations in a different article today. www.hoopshype.com also provides detailed salary cap information.
