ESPN Breaking News is reporting that the Nets reach a tenative agreement to acquire F Carmelo Anthony from Nuggets, Bergen Record (NJ) reports. Deal is pending Anthony agreeing to sign a 3-yr/$65M extension.
According to reports, Nuggets would acquire G Devin Harris, F Derrick Favors, C/F Troy Murphy, G Ben Uzoh and four 1st round draft picks from Nuggets. Nets would acquire G Chauncy Billups, F Sheldon Williams, C/F Melvin Ely and F Renaldo Balkman from Nuggets along with Anthony.
Personally, I dont see this happening in the end because Melo wants to be a Knick plain and simple. This deal only gets done if he signs the extension, and he wont if the Knicks can agree to a deal with Denver within the next few days and let Melo know they are going to trade for him. If this does happen though I will be beyond p*ssed off as a Knicks fan.
