DENVER (GaeaTimes.com) — Tuesday Denver’s KMGH-TV, channel 7 reported that Nuggets have agreed to sell their star forward Carmelo Anthony to New Jersey. But, the report was immediately shot down by the Nuggets.
Just after the revelation of the news, vice president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri told FanHouse that it’s totally false and Anthony will be in uniform for Denver on Thursday against San Antonio.
The unofficial start of the trade season will kick off on Dec 15. It’s the first day many free agents who signed during the summer can be dealt. The deadline of the trade is on Feb 24.
When asked about the craziness that unfolded at the Pepsi Center after he scored 35 points in his team’s 111-94 win over Orlando, Anthony said,
“Everybody has their own opinion about the situation,” Anthony said. “I don’t know where that came from, though.”
Sources said that Anthony has not signed a three-year, $64.47 million extension and can become a free agent this summer.
