Avery Johnson: Nets won’t include Favors in deal for Anthony

The Nets are not offering Derrick Favors in a package for Carmelo Anthony, at least according to Avery Johnson.

"One of the agreements we made was, ‘If you don’t hear me say anything about you then it’s not accurate,’" Johnson said, before discrediting an ESPN report stating the Nets were offering Favors in a package for Anthony."

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It’s not happening.

The New Jersey Nets are not trading Derrick Favors to the Denver Nuggets for embattled superstar Carmelo Anthony. The Nets love Favors’ upside, believing he could become an all-time great.

This development limits the soon-to-be Brooklyn squad’s ability to land Anthony. Remember, star big Brook Lopez is off the table. So the Nets have little to offer.

After all, Denver wants a young, blue-chip piece as part of any deal for Anthony. No Favors. No Lopez. No Anthony in New Jersey.
