Yahoo and the folks at blacksportsonline.com are reporting that Carmelo Anthony will be throwing up the R.O.C. with the New Jersey/soon-to-be-Brooklyn Nets next season. According to their sources, it'll be as many as four teams involved in a trade that will include No. 3 overall pick Derrick Favors, and more than a couple of future first round draft picks.
If it all goes down according to the report, the Nets would be receiving a nice compensation prize after missing out on "The Decision". Their biggest free-agent signings this summer were Travis Outlaw's last name, and Jordan Farmar's ears. Not sure how good this actually makes the team this year, but Carmelo is sure to get at least some people to travel from New York to the Garden State to check out a few games. What other options do NY basketball fans have? Do you really expect them to watch the Knicks?
