#Knicks #Melo spoke up negating trade rumors, Rose got $25K fine for ripping refs, and Bucks-Warriors completed a big trade!

“No, no, no, no. Let’s nip this in the bud right now. No,” Anthony said after the Knicks’ morning shootaround.

“I don’t know where that came from. I’m tired of hearing it. It came out this morning from I guess an anonymous source. I’m tired of anonymous sources. I don’t want to be traded. I don’t know where that foolishness came from, so let’s put a cap on that and make this the last time I hear about that.” – espn

#Knicks #Melo has received much speculation after a (2-8) record following his return to the team! This morning at the shoot-around he expressed his dismay for the trade rumors, and reinforced his loyalty to the #Knicks!

“I’ve gotta be the only superstar in the league that’s going through what I’m going through right now,” Rose said, referring to a lack of foul calls in his favor. “But I can’t say too much about it.” – espn

#Bulls Derrick Rose got fined $25K for ripping the refs on Monday after the 104-99 home victory over the NY Knicks! He publically criticized them in a post-game interview.

Monta Ellis and Andrew Bogut

“We’re extremely excited to acquire a player the caliber of Andrew Bogut, who we think is certainly one of the top centers in the NBA,” Warriors general manager Larry Riley said. “He will add an element of toughness to our team and will provide us with scoring, rebounding and a defensive presence in the middle. We’ve lacked those elements in recent years and think that Andrew’s addition will be a key factor in the growth of our team.” – espn

The Milwaukee Bucks traded C Andrew Bogut and G Stephen Jackson to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for G Monta Ellis on Tuesday night! The Bucks will also get F Ekpe Udoh and C Kwame Brown in the trade! The Warriors were searching for a quality big man in Bogut and Jackson played well on the Warriors before!
