It’s the question that’s really been the focal point of these trade talks since day one, and it’s a little odd the media can’t get their reports straight by now. ESPN’s Chris Broussard thinks Anthony’s resistance could still be the biggest “snag” in the trade, while Adrian Wojnarowski said it’s a little more complicated than that:
Anthony has delivered mixed messages on his desire to sign a contract extension with the Nuggets. He’s told two teammates he would ultimately be fine joining the Nets, and pushed his agent, Leon Rose, to help construct a package of players to go to the Nets with him. Nevertheless, Anthony has been wildly back and forth on his willingness to compromise with the Nets over the Knicks.
