Carmelo Anthony, Trade Rumors At Full Volume, Will Meet With Knicks And Nets During All-Star Weekend

As NBA trade rumors continue to pick up steam inside of a week before the NBA trade deadline (Feb. 24, 3 PM Eastern), Carmelo Anthony will reportedly meet with the franchise owners of the New York Knicks and the New Jersey Nets during All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles, reports Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. Anthony will be in L.A. to attend the players' union's meeting with franchise owners on Friday afternoon, coach the sophomore team in the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge Friday night and play in Sunday's All-Star Game. Meanwhile, his future may very well be decided in meetings with the Knicks' James Dolan and the Nets' Mikhail Prokhorov.

Via SB Nation New York, other members of the Knicks' collective to meet with 'Melo aren't yet known. Dolan is largely an absentee franchisee, stepping in to make (or, in some opinions, break) major decisions but otherwise content to focus on other business and his amateur jam band. Prokhorov is certainly an absentee at this point; he literally swooped in a month ago to end the Nets' first round of flirtation with 'Melo due to the heartache it had caused his players.

Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski reported late Thursday that the framework of a new deal between the Nuggets and Nets is being hammered out. That trade, of course, relies on 'Melo agreeing to sign a contract extension with New Jersey. The franchise is on track to move to the new Barclay Center in Brooklyn for the 2012-13 season. In the meantime, the Nets are 8-1/2 games out of the playoffs in the shallow East.
