ESPN's Mark Stein reports Thursday that while everyone is putting together potential trade packages for Carmelo Anthony, the Nuggets aren't listening...yet.
Stein writes, "Sources tied to five potential Anthony suitors, reached in recent days by ESPN.com, all relayed the same story about the Nuggets’ response: They’re pretty much ending these conversations before they even start by saying that they don't want to engage in Melo talks."
How long before there's serious talks? Stein says the Nuggets want to make sure 'Melo really is dead-set on leaving. If he is, then they will pick up the phone, but don't expect anything for another couple of weeks...and the speculation could extend all the way to February trade deadline.
