Nets Set A Deadline For Carmelo Anthony Trade

The New Jersey Nets are not going to sit around and wait forever for the Denver Nuggets to decide whether or not to trade Carmelo Anthony to them.

A Nets source said there will be a conclusion to the matter within the next 24 hours. The Nets want to know if the Nuggets are going to move on trading Anthony or keep everyone hanging. If so, King is going to remove the Nets from the talks.

The reasoning is the Nets don’t want this to linger any longer. As much as the players involved – starting point guard Devin Harris and rookie power forward Derrick Favors – say it’s not bothering them it’s cast a cloud of uncertainty over coach Avery Johnson‘s first training camp.
