Ken Berger, who has done some of the better reporting on Carmelo Anthony trade talks writes that "executives are becoming more convinced that Anthony would not agree to an extension with the Nets" claiming the Nets' two year exodus in Newark is not appealing to 'Melo.
"Having attended a recent Nets game in Newark, which might as well be Russia as far as native New Yorker Anthony is concerned, I concur," he writes.
"Had the Nets' move to Brooklyn not been sabotaged by lawsuits and New York City government paralysis, that would've made a huge difference," reports Berger. "But Newark is Newark, and I believe Melo is headed elsewhere".
