Despite Rumors, Carmelo Says No Meeting Scheduled With Nets
A rumor surfaced on Friday that the New Jersey Nets and the Denver Nuggets has agreed on a deal that would send All-Star Carmelo Anthony to New Jersey.
According to the rumor, the deal was done, pending a meeting between Anthony and the Nets representatives and owners.
However, Anthony says “no meeting at all” is scheduled with the New Jersey Nets.
Speaking Friday at a community service event in south Los Angeles, Anthony says a reported meeting with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov is “news to me.”
Anthony says: “If I was to meet with that guy (Prokhorov) to be honest I really don’t know what I would say.”
Prokhorov told team executives last month to end drawn-out trade talks for the Denver Nuggets All-Star forward. Prokhorov’s spokeswoman insists nothing has changed with the impending NBA trading deadline, despite multiple reports of a possible meeting and/or deal.
