There have been so many rumored Carmelo Anthony trades that it's hard to believe that anything will get completed until it actually happens. That is the case with this most recent three-way proposal involving the Timberwolves as well. ESPN reported on Saturday that the talks were progressing. Now, Chris Mannix of SI warns that the rumored deal is "not close," according to league sources.
"The package New Jersey offered was so much stronger than this," the executive said. "To me this feels like Denver trying to lure other teams to the table."
