The Nets will have to resort to Plan C or Plan D, if they have 'em! According to Nets Daily, "Mikhail Prokhorov, saying the negotiations had taken too long and had taken too much of a toll on his team, Wednesday, ended talks with the Denver Nuggets to acquire Carmelo Anthony. Saying his decision was final and that he was happy with the efforts of Billy King, the billionaire owner said the negotiations, which began in August, had cost the Nets games. Prokhorov said as well that he had permission from the Nuggets to talk to Anthony but no agreement on the final contours of the trade which would have been largest in NBA history, moving up to 16 players and $225 million in contracts."
Prokhorov will be at tonight's game—it's an Evening of Russian Culture—"We would like to use this opportunity to introduce the Nets to the Russian community in greater New York City as we prepare for the move to Brooklyn. It will also be a chance to give Nets fans a taste of Russia. I'm sure it will be a fun night, and I'm happy to be attending.
