Anthony practices with Nuggets as camp starts

Posted Sep 28 2010 5:22PM

DENVER (AP) -- Carmelo Anthony took the court with the Denver Nuggets on the first day of training camp.

With trade rumors swirling, Anthony's days in Denver could very well be numbered.

The All-Star forward said after practice Tuesday that the basketball court is his "safe haven," a place where he doesn't have to "deal with all the other stuff."

Anthony has yet to sign off on a three-year, $65 million extension that's been on the table since June, leading the Nuggets to explore trade options. A potential deal involving the New Jersey Nets hit a road block over the weekend.

Following practice, Nuggets coach George Karl gave Anthony an "A" for his professionalism, saying he thought his star was "very professional, very mature."
