An­thony deal stalls for Nets

Los Angeles Times - - College Football -

The pro­posed megadeal that would send Carmelo An­thony from the Den­ver Nuggets to the New Jersey Nets hit a snag Sun­day.

The Nuggets ap­par­ently have reser­va­tions about the trade, in which they would ac­quire rookie for­ward Der­rick Fa­vors of the Nets, for­ward An­drei Kir­ilenko of the Utah Jazz and two first-round draft picks in re­turn for An­thony. The Nets would also send point guard Devin Har­ris to the Char­lotte Bob­cats, who would send for­ward Boris Diaw to Utah.

Al­though NBA tam­per­ing rules pre­vent him from talk­ing di­rectly about An­thony, Nets Gen­eral Man­ager Billy King ac­knowl­edged that he has been work­ing on a trade.

“I would say that we’re ex­plor­ing ev­ery­thing,” King said. “But there’s no deal. We have noth­ing. We have noth­ing. We’re ex­cited about the guys play­ing. I’ll con­tinue to ex­plore and see if we can make the team bet­ter. At this point I’m ex­cited about watch­ing our guys prac­tice.”
