George Karl Finds Carmelo Anthony Trade To Knicks Preferable To Nets Deal

George Karl is pushing the Denver Nuggets to accept the New York Knicks trade offer for Carmelo Anthony instead of dealing with the New Jersey Nets, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Marc J. Spears. Karl reportedly prefers the lot the Nuggets would get back from the Knicks to the assortment the Nets could provide.

The team’s management, including president Josh Kroenke and GM Masai Ujiri, reportedly prefers the Nets’ final offer of Derrick Favors and draft picks.

With his contract ending at the end of the year, Karl understandably wants the Nuggets to be able to compete through the end of the season and make a playoff run, rather than build for the future. Landing a handful of picks and a potential star like Favors would set up Denver’s future nicely, but it would dismantle a season that still has a chance to be a success, all things considered.
