Is the Melo-Drama almost over?

A source is reporting that the 17-40 Nets and the Nuggets have reached a tenative agreement on a multiple-player deal involving Carmelo Anthony. According to the report, the following players will be swapped:

The Nets receive: Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Sheldon Williams, Melvin Ely, and Renaldo Balkman

The Nuggets receive: Derrick Favors, Devin Harris, Troy Murphy, Ben Uzoh, and four future first round draft picks.

The deal is contingent upon Anthony agreeing to a three-year, $65 million extension with the Nets. Owner Mikhail Prokhorov and minor owner, Jay-Z will sit down with Anthony during All-Star weekend this weekend in LA in an attempt to persuade Anthony to sign off on the contract. If Anthony signs the extension, the Nets will start this lineup on a nightly basis:

PG- Chauncey Billups
SG- Anthony Morrow
SF- Travis Outlaw
PF- Carmelo Anthony
C- Brook Lopez

Anthony has already spurned the Nets once and I can definitely see him doing it again. The Nets are giving up an absolute haul for Anthony, so it’ll be interesting to see how this situation plays out in the coming days.

Do you think Carmelo will sign the extension to play for New Jersey?
