Which is bacially a done deal, the Nuggets and Nets are close to completing a complicated three-team trade to send Carmelo Anthony to New Jersey. When you can’t get what you want as in the Knicks, you settle for the next best thing….. well is leaving a playoff team to a team with only 12 wins really a good scenario?
The 15 player trade calls for New Jersey to acquire Anthony,as well as 04 Champs Billups and Hamilton reunite; Denver to land Devin Harris(who when traded is rumored to send sent back to Dallas), Derrick Favors, Anthony Morrow, some bench warmers and at least two first-round picks; and Pistons get Troy Murphy and Johan Petro.
The deal is set everyone is ready but Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri is the one who has yet to pull the trigger, he seems to be gun shy. He may back out like LA did with Kobe to Chicago years ago and then win two rings back 2 back so maybe it’s a….uh….uh……..I got nothing. Check back for updates.
