NBA Trade Rumors Should Carmelo Anthony be traded

The latest NBA trade rumors will make LeBron James happy with a proposed three-team blockbuster deal between his Cleveland Cavaliers, the Phoenix Suns and the New York Knicks, especially if they fail against the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals.

According to Chad Ford from ESPN, the Knicks should consider sending star forward Carmelo Anthony and center Robin Lopez and in return get Brandon Knight, Alex Len, P.J. Tucker, Archie Goodwin and two first round picks in the 2016 NBA Draft from the Phoenix Suns.

Meanwhile, the Western Conference team will get stars Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, Sasha Kaun and Mo Williams from Cleveland.

While Ford’s suggestion makes sense for all teams, the deal is too much of a blockbuster and appears to be just another deal that will make the NBA trade rumors. However, looking at the deal, it solves the problems for all teams.

The Cavaliers will please Lebron James pairing him with close friend Carmelo Anthony plus get a very good big man in Robin Lopez.

The Knicks moves on from the Anthony era and gets good prospects in Knight and Len plus a very good role player in Tucker. The picks, No. 4 and No. 13 in the 2016 NBA Draft, would also be a nice addition as they rebuild around Kristaps Porzingis.

Could this NBA trade rumor involving the Suns, Knicks and Cavaliers happen? Or is too much of a blockbuster deal to become a reality?
