Carmelo Anthony Trade Nearly Done, Nuggets And Nets Hammering Out Final Details

Carmelo Anthony will soon be traded to the New Jersey Nets, according to reports, as the Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons and Nets hammer out the final details on a league-shifting three-team deal that could be completed on Monday.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Nets were surprised Denver allowed 'Melo and Chauncey Billups -- both headed to New Jersey in the reported deal -- to play in Sunday's night loss to the New Orleans Hornets. The Nets consider their job done in terms of creating a package to both convince the Nuggets to part with Anthony and to convince the star forward to sign a three-year extension with New Jersey.

Al Iannazzone of the Bergen Record reports that the Nuggets are trying to squeeze just a bit more out of the Nets, drawing the ire of the experience New Jersey front office led by former Sixers GM Billy King.

The reported deal would also send Troy Murphy and Johan Petro to the Pistons, Shelden Williams and Rip Hamilton to the Nets and Derrick Favors, Anthony Morrow, Devin Harris, Ben Uzoh and Quinton Ross to the Nuggets. Picks would also head Denver's way.
