Per the Denver Post:
The Denver news doesn't surprise me much. I noted awhile ago that I felt Denver was most likely to wait until February to make a move on Anthony. If Anthony is limiting the field as much as it appears he is then the Nuggets don't have much incentive to hurry and might as well see if they can change his mind by having a great season.
If the deal is to be with the Bulls they can also monitor the progress of the players they'd want back in a trade. A healthy Luol Deng playing at a high level may convince them to pull the trigger while an injured Luol Deng would save them from taking a bullet. Either way, it's unlikely the Bulls offer will change, so you might as well wait and see how good it looks in three months.
If Melo is willing to go to NJ then NJ will get him, if not then I think the offers the Bulls and Knicks are close enough that it will depend on how the players look at the deadline.
As for Fernandez, the story is the same as it ever was. Neither team has incentive to move off their present stance really. The Blazers aren't missing out on a late 1st, as the article notes, they'll buy into the draft using cash if they want a pick in that range. The Bulls don't think Rudy, given his desire to return to Europe and mediocreness, is worth more than that.
I think eventually, this deal has about a 2/3rds chance of going down with Rudy to Chicago and either James Johnson and our late #1 or just the #1 going to Portland. In the end, the disincentive to keep Rudy around and grumbling will make Portland dump him.
He's going to make their team worse with his presence, and his value is what it is. They can want a mid 1st rounder just like I want to double my salary, but they've been shopping him all summer and the best offer is what it is at this point. Most teams in the mix have moved on and signed guys who would play the same role, if anything his value is going down not up, and it's even less likely to raise in the regular season when he won't play regularly.
