NJ/DEN/DET Trade: The Latest from Adrian Wojnarowski

11

*** The New Jersey Nets continued to negotiate on Sunday with the Denver Nuggets and Detroit Pistons on a three-team trade that would bring them Carmelo Anthony, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. One front-office executive involved in the negotiations said the talks are "progressing." As Anthony demands the Nets surround him with veteran talent as a condition for him to commit to a contract extension, his agent has been the driving force behind bringing Pistons guard Richard Hamilton into the talks, league sources said. .... The Pistons are determined to trade Hamilton and the $25 million left on his contract, but they refuse to part with the draft pick, sources said. Murphy has a $12 million expiring contract and Petro is in the first season of a three-year, $10 million deal. Yahoo! Sports link *** Nets no longer asking for Detroit 1st rounder and searching for another team to unload Petro on, sources say. Pistons want Murphy for Rip. Detroit has leverage here, because Melo's agent is pushing Rip inclusion in bigger deal to NJ. Detroit may end up with a 1st out of deal. There's momentum toward getting a deal done, because Denver's ready. "They're getting a lot of pressure from Melo's people," executive says. Would Melo's agent work so hard to get Rip in deal, only have to client refuse $65M contract in NJ? Melo does waffle, but seems unlikely. Wojnarowski Twitter feed ***
