Nets Looking for a Third Team to Help them Get Anthony

The Melo-drama continues.

Chris Broussard reports that the Nets are doing whatever they can - short of putting Brook Lopez on the table - to get Carmelo Anthony from the Nuggets. They spent all day Wednesday looking for other teams to help them get a deal done with the Nuggets.

Broussard notes that a two-team deal that sends Derrick Favors, Troy Murphy, Kris Humphries and a pick to Denver "is not going to happen," and that the Nets still have no guarantee that Anthony would sign an extension to stay in New Jersey beyond this season.

In Denver, Sandy Clough of 104.3 The Fan told Andrew Feinstein of Denver Stiffs that he's heard the third team may be Utah.  In the scenario Clough said came from a "good source", Anthony and Kenyon Martin would go to New Jersey; Favors, Andrei Kirilenko and two first round picks would go to Denver and Devin Harris would leave for Utah.
