Nets owner has no plans to meet with Anthony
“I told you that first,” Anthony said after practice at the Los Angeles Convention Center. “I told you that first.”
The Nets and Nuggets recently renewed trade talks for Anthony for the third time this season. However, Anthony, who can became a free agent after this season, insisted twice Friday that no meeting was planned with Prokhorov.
Pinchuk backed that up Saturday.
“Just to update you, Mikhail has not met with and has no plans to meet with Carmelo Anthony,” she said. “He is looking forward to enjoying All Star Weekend. We will have nothing else to add on this …”
“Yeah, I would have broke bread with him, drunk some water with him,” Anthony said.
Anthony wouldn’t answer when asked about a New York Daily News report that he met with Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan on Thursday.
The Nuggets have looked into trading Anthony since he declined to sign a three-year contract extension worth nearly $65 million this season. The Nets were close to a deal twice, and the New York Knicks are considered the other favorite to land Anthony if Denver decides to move him.
The Prokhorov update seems to make the Knicks the favorite in the “Melo” sweepstakes. Anthony wants something to happen soon, but hasn’t received any indication from Nuggets executive Josh Kroenke that it will.
“I believe that me and Josh have a good relationship. Since he became the owner, we’ve been talking a lot. The lines of communication have been open,” Anthony said. “I do believe that if something was to break or happen, that he would call me or he would sit down with me and explain it.”
Either team would have to give up a big portion of its roster to land Anthony. Yahoo! Sports reported Friday that the Knicks were willing to offer starters Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler and Raymond Felton.
“If anything was to happen with whatever team, of course, I would want a team to be able to compete with,” Anthony said. “As far as all the players that’s in the deal, that’s supposed to be in the deal, yeah, that’s a lot of players for one guy.”
