Avery Johnson Unaware of Any Potential Meetings Between Carmelo Anthony, Nets

Monday on As Carmelo's World Turns, New Jersey Nets head coach Avery Johnson admitted to not being totally in the loop in regards to the latest rumors involving All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony.

Recent reports indicated that the Nets were going to be allowed to sit down with the embattled Nuggets forward to discuss a possible contract extension. According to Yahoo, though, Johnson knows nothing of the meeting.

"You guys have something new every day," Johnson told reporters, as the team readied for a game with the Warriors. "If there's such a meeting taking place, make sure you guys contact [Nets spokesman] Gary Sussman so I can make sure I make myself available."

If the Nets were able to score a meeting with Anthony, it would be a rather large step forward as the team wants to have a contract extension in place before pulling the trigger on what would be a three-team trade to acquire the All-Star.

The Nets are reportedly trying to get Anthony, a free agent following this season, to sign a three-year, $65 million contract extension. The forward turned down the same deal from the Nuggets this past summer.
