Carmelo Anthony agrees to deal, trade all but done
 

 
The Nets are on the verge of acquiring superstar Carmelo Anthony from Denver after what loomed as the biggest obstacle in the blockbuster trade — Anthony approving a deal to that would put him for two years on the opposite bank of his preferred side of the Hudson River.
Suddenly, the Knicks-Nets rivalry seems relevant again, even without Jason Kidd.
The Nets would get Anthony and possibly point guard D.J. Augustin from Charlotte at the price of firstround pick Derrick Favors, point guard Devin Harris and at least one future firstrounder.
Anthony agreeing to a three-year, $65 million extension — an absolute prerequisite for the Nets in the deal— was the biggest holdup, but several league sources confirmed the 26-year-old said yes to that last night. But there remained details to be worked out. The Nets were determined to get the deal finalized before the Nuggets reported to training camp Monday.


The four teams all seemed in apparent agreement on the particulars of the deal although the Nuggets held a faint hope of trying to convince Anthony to re-up. By not including high-priced expiring contracts, the Nets can be free agent players next summer and will be in position to make a run at Chris Paul.
Anthony had made no secret of his desire to play for the Knicks, but they lacked the pieces to make it happen. His next choice was the Bulls, who quashed the deal by refusing to include Joakim oah. The Nets apparently appeal with their eventual move to Brooklyn. Several Nets officials privately had expressed the belief Anthony would sign his extension.
Some felt Anthony was holding out, hoping for the Knicks or Bulls to make a last ditch push.
The Nuggets presented Anthony with the max extension — the most they could offer — hoping to ward off his free agency. But Anthony seemed determined to get out of Denver and the Nets have been willing bidders.
“Any time you get a chance to get an All-Star, you have to go for it and that looks like what the Nets are doing,” said one Atlantic Division coach who did not want to be identified for commenting about another team. “And you have to give up something to get something. They did and still kept [Brook] Lopez.”
And what the Nets seemed most reluctant about was parting with Favors, who is a walking, talking tribute to unbridled potential. New coach Avery Johnson seems to have grown very fond very quickly of the 19-year-old star-in-waiting.
“But they can secure an All-Star player with a kid who could be an All-Star,” a rival executive said.
The Nets, if the deal gets finalized, could roll out a front line of Anthony, power forward Troy Murphy and center Brook Lopez.
The Nets have been pursuing Anthony and really stepped up their push in recent days, seeking a third and then a fourth team to join the trade scenario. Utah and then Charlotte entered the negotiations. Utah, seeking luxury tax relief, would send forward Andrei Kirilenko and his $17.8 million salary to Denver while receiving forward Boris Diaw from Charlotte and swingman Quinton Ross from the Nets.
Charlotte lands Harris and Jarvis Hayes (never renounced) from the Nets. Denver, then, gets Favors, Kirilenko and the Nets’ 2012 first round pick originally obtained from Golden State in the Marcus Williams trade. That pick is protected 1-to-7.

Nets are f**kin stupid to do this trade...Melo is not a winner...Yea he scores a lot but he is not a leader and will never win a ring as the go to guy....Favors has a lot of potential and so does Harris...and then they also giving up future 1st rounder

Favors is gonna be nice in Denver
