On Friday afternoon the New Jersey Bergen Record reported that a deal had been reached for Carmelo Anthony to be traded to the New Jersey Nets. He just had to approve it.
Anthony has stated more than once that New Jersey is not a destination he would sign off on a contract extension with. But this did not prevent the teams from putting a package together.
The trade proposal appears to include several players from both sides. New Jersey would end up with Carmelo, Chauncey Billups, Sheldon Williams, Melvin Ely and Renaldo Balkman.
In return, Denver would receive Devin Harris, Derrick Favors, Troy Murphy, Ben Uzoh and four first-round picks.
The many pieces involved in the deal would affect the remainder of the league as well.
This slideshow contains five winners and five losers from this trade if it were approved.
Feel free to comment below with what other winners and losers you think there would be.
