Nets Walking Away From Carmelo Deal
 

 
Russian owner just said it in press conference

Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov said today his team is no longer interested in pursuing Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony.

"There comes a time when the price is simply too expensive," he said during a news conference in New Jersey this afternoon. "I'm instructing our team to walk away from the deal."

Prokhorov said his meeting with Anthony, which was tentatively set for Thursday, is canceled.
"It's been too long and too expensive," he said of the trade talks which have dragged on for months.

When asked if that was a final decision, he responded, "for sure."

"It's my own decision," Prokhorov said. "(The Nuggets) had a very good proposal. They probably did their best to protect their interests."

Mikhail Prokhorov told reporters he is instructing the Nets' management to walk away from the Carmelo Anthony deal, The Record's Al Iannazzone reports.

He said it's taken too much time and is weighing on the team, so he's out. Yes, that's his final decision.

It's another surprising turn of events in the season-long 'Melo-drama. But it's probably just a negotiation tactic as the Nets and Nuggets continue to posture through the media.
Regardless, this is certainly the right move for the Nets. All along Denver a.ssumed the Nets were desperate to acquire Anthony because their owner coveted him. Now that Prokhorov has made it clear that's not the case, the Nuggets have absolutely no leverage. Either they work out a trade, or they stand to lose their best player for nothing.

But don't a.ssume the Nets are out of the running. Unless another team foolishly tops the Nets' last offer, Denver will come crawling back to New Jersey begging them for their last package. And the Nets can probably afford to negotiate that offer down and steal Anthony for less.

Nets AND Nuggets lost..

Knicks and Bulls can proceed to low ball the f**k out of the Nuggets now..

If the Knicks offer Wilson Chandler I don't see how the Nuggets pass up on it at this point.. But I bet the Knicks say Gallo/Curry or f**k off.. And the Nuggets have no choice but to take it.

Im down with that, keep favors, him and lopez will be beastin for years to come.

Probably will have a top 5 pick this year.

Trade away harris, murphy, and some picks (LAL HOU GSW, all first rounders) and try to acquire someone like mayo, wallace, or granger.


We still got a bright future. Id rather do this than gut the team for melo

Mikhail Prokorov has been a big time flop and gotten f**ked since he stepped in office for the Nets. n*gga thought he was getting Wall in the lottery and got Favors. Talked about making it rain in free agency and spent the money on Outlaw,Farmar, and Anthony Marrow. And now he whiffed up getting Melo to come to Jersey and now he's gotta settle to watch him go to New York while he's stuck with a 10-31 team and money to try and lure free agents to a team nobody wants to play for :lachen001:
