Nuggets make classy move, pause Carmelo Anthony trade talks while he’s out


Carmelo Anthony is away from the Nuggets and back in Baltimore, grieving from the death of his sister to a pre-existing medical condition. He is expected to join up with the team again after Christmas.

In a classy move — and a bit of a respite for the rest of us — the Nuggets management has suspended all trade conversations about Anthony until after he returns to the team, Ken Berger of CBSSports reports.

Our sympathies go out to Anthony, his family and in particular his sister’s four children.
