Carmelo, Nets close to trade

Let’s go ahead and try this again.

After a couple of close calls to land Carmelo Anthony in a trade with the Denver Nuggets, the Nets are reportedly on the brink of landing the three-time All-Star for real this time.

As many as 15 players could be involved in a three-team trade involving the Nets, Nuggets and Pistons. Richard Hamilton and Chauncey Billups would join Anthony in New Jersey, with Devin Harris and rookie Derrick?Favors heading to Denver. The Nuggets would also receive two first-round draft picks.
