Another day, another rumor.
The Denver Nuggets are interested in trading Anthony to the Eastern Conference while obtaining draft picks and young talent in return.
The Rockets could provide two of the three demands.
In addition, Houston will also obtain New York’s 2012 first-round selection.
While Kevin Martin isn’t necessarily considered “young” in the NBA world, his talent is intriguing enough to catch Denver’s front-offices attention.
At the age of 27, Martin has proved to be a top tier scoring threat in the league, averaging at least 20 PPG throughout his past four seasons.
During K-Mart’s 08′-09′ campaign he produced career-high numbers in points per game, dropping 24.6 PPG, good enough for seventh best in the NBA.
Although Martin has a history of various injuries, he has the ability to light up the scoreboard when placed into the right system.
In addition to Martin, the Rockets have eight players on their roster that are 25 years of age or younger.
If Denver is really interested in acquiring young guns for Melo, Houston seems to be the team to make a deal with as they have a surplus of young talent on their roster.
