According to Berger, "the Nuggets have decided they would like to receive the best possible package of young players and are not interested in stopgap options that would hamper their flexibility." That, he says, could put the Nets in the lead position: "A package of 2010 No. 4 pick Derrick Favors, guard Devin Harris, the expiring contract of Kris Humphries and two first-round picks remains the most attractive option to the Nuggets, sources say".
As for whether 'Melo would be willing to sign a $65 million extension with New Jersey, Berger writes, "sources who have been in close contact with the power brokers in Anthony’s camp -- William Wesley and Leon Rose -- say the Nets remain an option for Anthony."
