Denver Nuggets are apparently done with trying to convince disgruntled forward Carmelo Anthony(notes) to accept a three-year, $65 million offer and are now trying to trade him, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. This comes on the heels of Anthony reiterating his desire to leave in a meeting Sunday with team-owner-to-be Josh Kroenke.
This wasn't a productive, nor particularly pleasant meeting, and multiple sources said it could turn out to be the point of no return for Anthony and the organization, Wojnarowski writes.
Anthony's agents, William Wesley and Leon Rose, have given the Nuggets a list of teams that their client would be willing to play for, Wojnarowski reports. Anthony is set to become a free agent at the end of the coming season.
"It's almost a given they're going to move him," a front-office executive who's talked with the Nuggets and Anthony's agents told Wojnarowski.
