The Nets Are Walking Away From the Carmelo Anthony Trade Talks

At his press conference in Newark today, Mikhail Prokhorov told reporters that he's instructed team brass to walk away from talks with the Nuggets, saying that he was "not happy with the way ... this deal has gone." (As you'd imagine, he said that a meeting with Anthony scheduled for tomorrow in Denver has been canceled.) Said Prokhorov: "It has taken too long. It has been played out in public and it certainly has taken a toll on the players and I believe that it has cost us several games. I think management did a great job, but there comes a time when the price is simply too expensive. I'm instructing our team to walk away from the deal." [ESPN New York]
