With trade rumors swirling, Anthony’s days in Denver could very well be numbered.
The All-Star forward said after practice Tuesday that the basketball court is his ”safe haven,” a place where he doesn’t have to ”deal with all the other stuff.”
Anthony has yet to sign off on a three-year, $65 million extension that’s been on the table since June, leading the Nuggets to explore trade options. A potential deal involving the New Jersey Nets hit a road block over the weekend.
Following practice, Nuggets coach George Karl gave Anthony an ”A” for his professionalism, saying he thought his star was ”very professional, very mature.”
