While the NBA All-Star Weekend is usually filled with plenty of excitement and fun, for Carmelo Anthony the next few days could mark the end of his time with the Denver Nuggets. Last night, we learned that the New Jersey Nets have reached the parameters of a trade with the Nuggets for 'Melo. The only thing standing in the way, supposedly, is whether 'Melo will sign an extension with the Nets.
Now, Frank Isola of the NY Daily News reports that a meeting will take place between Anthony and Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov--and James Dolan of the Knicks. Prokhorov had a private meeting schedule with Anthony in January but canceled it and the trade because the process had taken too much of a toll on the team. Publicly, Prokhorov's stance has remained as though he is no longer interested in a trade.
Isola suggests the meeting with Dolan isn't about selling New York to Anthony (it's always been his desired destination), but rather to find out the vision of the future for the Knicks with him there.
At this point with all the rumors, the non-starter positions and the canceled trades, we're less than a week away from a resolution to the "will they or won't they trade him" saga.
