Karl catches sneak peek of Favors
Question of the Day
Just in case Anthony is dealt to New Jersey in a blockbuster trade being discussed, Karl checked out the player that he would be getting in return for the All-Star forward, watching Favors play against Phoenix on Wednesday night.
It never hurts to look, especially with the Anthony trade speculation intensely blowing.
Yet Karl is hoping it all turns out to be bluster.
“I think the chances of this team being somewhat what it is, is probably just as much as the possibility of it not being (what it is),” Karl said after morning practice Thursday prior to a game against the Miami Heat. “That’s my reality, my thought process of the drama. I don’t like the drama and I’m not an expert on the drama.”
Karl doesn’t ask for constant updates on the status of his star player, preferring to leave the Anthony negotiations _ whatever they may be _ to general manager Masai Ujiri and team president Josh Kroenke.
“I don’t want daily detail. Don’t confuse me,” said Karl, who had Ujiri and Kroenke stop by the court Thursday. “For me, coaches are paranoid, coaches get tunnel vision over what-ifs. It’s just best for me to stay strong that somehow, someway this could be our team. I think we could be a really good team.
“In my paranoid world, I think that’s a hell of a possibility.”
But this lineup could also be drastically altered, should a proposed three-team deal take place.
The most recent talks has floor leader Chauncey Billups and former Detroit teammate Richard Hamilton reuniting in New Jersey along with Anthony. The Nets would send Favors, point guard Devin Harris and first-round picks to Denver in exchange for Anthony, Billups, Hamilton, Shelden Williams and Terrico White.
The deal would largely rest on whether Anthony will sign his extension so the Nets can have him as their cornerstone for years to come. Anthony has given no indication if he would agree to sign it and go to the Nets.
Billups has grown weary of chatting about all the rumors, even more so now with his name being dragged into the mix.
