I will give the Nets this, they are persistent.

They have been trying for months to get this deal done with the Nuggets and have tried to include almost every team in the NBA to get it done.

The current deal in place is about is good as it is going to get, we will see if it will be enough.

A three-team deal involving the Detroit Pistons that would include at least 15 players — with Rip Hamilton and Chauncey Billups winding up in New Jersey with Anthony — could be completed as soon as this week, sources said.

The primary elements of the scenario currently on the table, sources said, call for New Jersey to acquire Anthony, Billups and Hamilton; Denver to land Devin Harris, Derrick Favors, Anthony Morrow and at least two first-round picks; and Detroit to acquire Troy Murphy and Johan Petro.

Just like all the other deals there are problems. Mainly Billups doesn’t want to go to New Jersey and has already said he would want a buyout. Billups can’t block a trade, so he may have to go whether he likes it or not.

Then of course you have Anthony’s willingness to sign an extension.

The Nets seem to believe Anthony desire to have his money locked in before a new CBA is signed (which will restrict salaries) will override his desire to play for the Knicks.

I am not to sure about that, but first the trade has to be agree upon.

I won’t believe it until it is officially announce and neither should you.
