The New Jersey Nets announced on Wednesday they were backing off for the services of Denver forward Carmelo Anthony. Team owner Mikhail Prokhorov announced he was moving forward and not pursuing Anthony. He cited “taking too long”, and “becoming too expensive” as the reasons for shying away from Anthony.

The Nets had offered six players and at least two draft picks to get Anthony. The deal involved getting Chauncey Billups and Richard Hamilton also coming to Denver. The deal would have involved three teams and 12 players. Derrick Favors, the rookie for New Jersey was the center piece for New Jersey.

The Nets have lost six straight games overall, including all their games on the West Coast trip. The Nets have the second worst record in the Eastern Conference, only ahead of the Cleveland Cavaliers. New Jersey is now coming home to host the Utah Jazz on Wednesday.

The Nets need Anthony on the offensive side. New Jersey is ranked 29th in the league, scoring 92.4 points per game. Carmelo is the leading scorer for the Nuggets, and has potential to score near 30 points per game.
