Deal for 'Melo Dead-For Now
The alleged and highly-reported four-way deal that would have sent Nuggets F Carmelo Anthony to the Nets is dead for now, according to Yahoo! Sports.
The news of the trade first surfaced this weekend and included many principals switching teams. As part of the proposed deal, the Nuggets would have received Jazz F Andrei Kirelenko, Nets rookie and No. 3 overall pick of 2010 draft Derek Favors and two first-round picks-one each from the Jazz and Bobcats. Nets PG Devin Harris would have been shipped to Charlotte, with a combination of picks and/or players going to the Jazz. The deal reportedly fell through because of Kirelenko's salary would add 4.5 million to the Nuggets luxury tax.
