Report: Nets, Nuggets Have A Deal In Place For Carmelo Anthony

I know you’re tired of all the speculation. I am too. But here’s more!

According to The Record, the New Jersey Nets and the Denver Nuggets have a deal in place that would send Carmelo Anthony to the Nets. All that’s left is Carmelo to sign off on the deal.

The Nets and Nuggets have reached a tentative agreement on a deal involving Carmelo Anthony, multiple NBA sources told The Record. The deal is pending Anthony agreeing to sign a three-year, $65 million contract extension.

If Anthony says yes, the Nets will get the four-time All-Star, Chauncey Billups, Sheldon Williams, Melvin Ely and Renaldo Balkman from the Nuggets. In turn, the Nets would send Devin Harris, Derrick Favors, Troy Murphy, Ben Uzoh and four first-round picks to Denver.

The Nets won’t do the trade unless Anthony agrees to the extension. They’re expected to meet with him during this All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles and convince him to join.

More information (and speculation!) is to come I’m sure.
