Source: Nets working on deal for Carmelo Anthony
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The New Jersey Nets might be getting a superstar after all.
A person close to the talks who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak for the team told The Associated Press on Friday that the Nets were involved in very complicated talks with the Denver Nuggets for the small forward. The person added that nothing was expected to be decided Friday.
Yahoo! Sports first reported the trade talks.
The price that the Nets would pay for Anthony in what would be a multiteam trade would be steep.
The Nuggets have offered Anthony a three-year extension valued at $65 million, but he has refused to sign it.
Word of the trade talks surfaced on Friday, hours after new coach Avery Johnson and players reported to camp and talked to the media about the upcoming season. The team’s first practice is Saturday.
“All year you are going to hear stuff about not only our situation but every team. That’s the way it goes,” he said. “Every general manager, and you have 30 of them, they are always out looking to improve the ballclub and that’s what they should do. If Billy was sitting up in his office looking at some political talk on television, because I heard he was a politics guy, I would be very disappointed. He is going to be always looking to improve our ball club.”
