Rumor: Nets Closing In On Trading For Carmelo Anthony..It’s the R.O.C.
Knicks fan are not pleased by this latest report from Yahoo Sports that says Melo and La La (no word on Tyrese) maybe on there way to New Jersey Drive. Since Melo decided he wanted out, there have been rumors that the Nets were the front runners, even if Melo would prefer to go to Knicks or Bulls.
Do not discount how much his wife is influencing his decision making. She is a media personality and living in New Jersey, is basically like being in NYC.
Here are the details:
The New Jersey Nets are working feverishly to acquire All-Star Carmelo Anthony(notes) and are in the construction stage of a complicated, multi-team trade, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Nothing is imminent in the next 24 hours, but Denver and New Jersey are having ongoing discussions centered on No. 3 overall pick Derrick Favors(notes) and future first-round picks going back to the Nuggets. The two teams are engaging third – and possibly even fourth teams – to complete what one front-office source described as a “very complicated” deal.
One league executive said the Nets believe they’re “getting there” on a trade for Anthony.
The Nets want to get a deal done before Anthony reports to training camp in Denver next week because league officials think the Nuggets will start working to convince him to stay.
Jay Z said if he didn’t get Lebron, he would signed Dwyane Wade, maybe he can do a remix where he talks about signing Carmelo Anthony.
Anyway as the report says nothing is imminent but the clock is running, no word if Melo leaves JR Smith will think about retiring, he will probably just get Melo tattooed on the side of his head that’s all the room that is left on him to put a tat.
