Nets Seen as Front-Runners for Anthony

ESPN updated its Carmelo Anthony story Monday evening, noting that several league sources have named the Nets as front-runners to acquire the Nuggets' star.

Chad Ford and Marc Stein write that Anthony is willing to sign a contract extension with New Jersey.  The Nets, according to sources, are willing to send Derrick Favors, Troy Murphy, Kris Humphries and at least one first-round pick to Denver.  Neither the Nets nor the Nuggets have confirmed talks.

The Rockets are likely to make a pitch as well centered around Kevin Martin and the 76ers are in contact with Denver, according to local press reports in Houston and Philadelphia.  The Knicks, of course, are expected to make a pitch for the three-time all-star, using Eddy Curry.

Isiah Thomas, speaking from his Florida exile, said he thinks 'Melo would rather play with the Knicks, but conceded the Nets could be players.  "I think the Nets have a chance, but in terms of what I think he would really like to be ... in terms of winning and everything else ... I think he would rather win with the Knicks than win with the Nets," Thomas said.
