Carmelo Anthony: Should The Denver Nuggets Trade Him To The Los Angeles Lakers?

By now, NBA fans the world over are sick of "The Decision - Part Deux" concerning Denver Nuggets star, Carmelo Anthony.

Will he sign a contract extension with Denver or won't he? 

Will the New Jersey Nets agree to the demands of the Nuggets or won't they?  

Will Melo meet with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov or won't he? 

Will the Knicks give up part of their young roster to trade for him so Melo can get the max money or will they wait until he's a free agent to sign him risking that he is willing to lose millions under the new CBA?

Will the Nuggets trade him to the highest bidder before the Feb. 24th trade deadline so they can get something for him or will they risk being left with nothing like the Cleveland Cavaliers when LeBron James left in free agency?

All the while, the season of the Nuggets have been spiraling down, with no one expecting them to get past the first round of the playoffs, just two years removed from playing in the Western Conference Finals.

The latest in the Melo saga is said to involve a three-way trade involving the Nuggets, the Knicks and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Under this proposed deal, the Knicks would send Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry to the T-Wolves, who would send Corey Brewer and a first-round pick to the Nuggets, who will send Anthony to the Knicks while also getting Wilson Chandler in return.

The problem with this deal is why on earth would the T-Wolves agree to it?

With them currently being in last place in the Western Conference, why would they give up their valuable, high lottery draft pick just to get Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry's expiring contract?

In fact, a T-Wolves source has already told ESPN that the team would not accept such a deal if that is all they would be getting.
