 Representatives for Nuggets foward Carmelo Anthony have reportedly told the team's ownership that the all-star wants out of Denver. Adrian Wonnarowski of Yahoo Sports reports that Anthony, along with agent Leon Rose and ubiquitous NBA backroom dealer William Wesley (a.k.a. World Wide Wes) spoke with new Nuggets owner Josh Kroenke on Sunday in a meeeting that was was described as "not particularly pleasant." According to Wojnarowski, Kroenke pushed back somewhat against Anthony's representatives' demands, and refused to trade team star unless he gets young players and draft picks in return. Carmelo departure from the Nuggets could be great news for the Nets. Anthony has given the Nuggets a list of teams he would like to be traded to, sending him and the team to a "point of no return," Yahoo! Sports reports. The Nets, along with the Clippers, are the most likely trading partners for the Nuggets, the reports says. " The geography works for Anthony because of his wife LaLa Vazquez's entertainment career with MTV. The Nets could offer some kind of combination of T-Will, Devin Harris, Derrick Favors, and the 10 draft picks they have stockpiled over next three years. Pairing Melo with Brook Lopez will make the New Jersey Nets a dangerous team.
