Has Denver’s Front-Office Come to Its Senses?

If you’re still having a hard time wrapping your head around the rumored Carmelo Anthony trade to New Jersey, you can rest easy. It ain’t happening, according to ‘Melo’s agent.

Calvin Andrews says that his client will be wearing powder blue for the forseeable future.

“Carmelo Anthony is their guy,” Andrews said Wednesday, relaying what Nuggets’ management told him.

“There are no plans to trade Melo. Melo will be in a Denver uniform next year. They’re not entertaining trades for Melo. It’s not even in the cards.”

Carmelo Anthony may never lead Denver to a title, but Richard Freaking Jefferson certainly isn’t the answer.

With stars of Melo’s magnitude (and age), unless you’re getting someone back of equal stature, it’s just doesn’t make any sense to trade them away. Here’s to hoping Carmelo’s agent is telling the truth.
