The Nuggets have all but decided to trade Anthony

The Nuggets have all but decided to trade Anthony if he does not sign an extension with the team by the trade deadline, and Denver’s management team believes Anthony is fully prepared to play out the season and become a free agent, multiple sources told CBSSports.com….

 

I didn't see this posted anywhere else, but I've been away from my computer.  To me, this is the nuggets saying, okay it's almost December 15th.  Get us your best and final offers.  If they are going to do this, do it sooner than later in my book.  Sounds like they still like the Favors deal.  Favors plus two first round picks, plus a Marc Gasol signing next offseason would get them competitive again very quickly.

edit:  Also, this decision meshes very well with the reports of an extension for G.K.  Contrary to what some posters have been saying about not keeping Karl if you are rebuilding, I think Karl is exactly the coach you keep if you are rebuilding.  His strengths as a coach are precisely what you need when rebuilding.  The comparison has been on this site, probably originating with Andrew on the FGK site.  Karl is the mechanic who takes your broken down honda and gets it running smoothly.  He's not the guy who gets your supercar firing on all cylinders - that's phil Jackson.  The nuggets appear to be on there way to being the broken down honda again.
