Nuggets beat writer Benjamin Hochman caught up with Melo about the recent trade talks the Denver Broncos incumbent quarterback Jay Cutler has been speculated in.

Remember Carmelo's name was flying around in rumors during this past offseason perhaps going to the New Jersey Nets for Richard Jefferson.

I think all us Nuggets fans are praising Mr. Kroenke or whoever was running things for not making any deals!

Anthony could relate to the emotions involving the Broncos' quarterback, who learned Friday he was part of a proposed three-team deal with Tampa Bay and New England, although it never materialized.

"You got to learn that it is a business, especially with him," said Anthony, who last summer was ultimately reassured by Nuggets exec Rex Chapman that Denver wouldn't trade him. "(Cutler) has been the guy who they've been saying could be the next (John) Elway perhaps. (Trade rumors) are always a tough situation because you don't know where it's coming from, who's saying it, if it's true, if it's false. That was my big thing this summer. Just let me know, so I can get my mind off thinking about where it's coming from and who's saying it and who's not saying it."
