Carmelo Anthony's signature sneaker line with Jordan Brand may soon be a thing of the past if one report is to believed.

Citing industry sources, ESPN.com's Nick DePaula reported Wednesday that Anthony's M13 sneaker, which was released during the 2016-17 season, will be "the final model of the line."

DePaula emphasized the two sides will continue to work together after Anthony signed a new contract with Jordan Brand in January.

With the partnership ongoing, DePaula added Anthony is likely to wear "a combination of shoes from the brand this upcoming year, such as the Air Jordan XXXII, custom editions of retro models, and possibly even a remixed version of his very first signature model."

Anthony later denied the report.

"It's false. False. Let's not even discuss that," the Oklahoma City Thunder forward told reporters after Tuesday's 96-86 preseason win over the Denver Nuggets, according to the Norman Transcript's Fred Katz.

"I just signed an extension with them. I don't read into false news."

Jordan Brand also provided a statement to Bleacher Report about DePaula's report: 

“Melo is a long-time and respected member of the Jordan family. As is the case with all Jordan family athletes, we work together with Melo on a footwear plan each year, and no decisions have been finalized about future models. Any decision made will be a collaborative one between Melo and Jordan Brand.”

According to DePaula, Anthony's teammate Russell Westbrook signed a 10-year extension with Jordan Brand in September that was the richest for any athlete in the company's history.
