Carmelo Anthony calls Prokhorov, Jay-Z, and Brooklyn Nets ‘interesting’
“Prokhorov is interesting, Jay-Z is interesting, the future of that organization is interesting,” Anthony said. “They’re moving to Brooklyn is interesting. There’s a lot there.”
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: I get the sense Carmelo Anthony is enjoying his moment in the sun.
For months, the spotlight has been on Anthony, his pending free agency, and where he’ll end up. The glare of that spotlight doesn’t affect him. In fact, it pleases him.
So Anthony tossed fuel on the New Jersey Nets fire, telling the Bergeron Record he finds the club’s owners, organization, and Brooklyn ‘interesting’.
Well, the feeling is mutual.
New Jersey has interest in Anthony. He’s a natural scorer. And his star power would help overshadow the Knicks when the team eventually crosses the river into Brooklyn.
However, Anthony won’t come cheap. The Denver Nuggets want Brook Lopez or Derrick Favors in a package that will include expiring contracts and draft picks.
Interest may not be enough to complete a trade. The speculation will continue, which means additional headlines and press for Anthony.
Something tells me he won’t have a problem with this.
