Hornets hand Nuggets another loss, 96-87

DENVER (AP) - If this was Carmelo Anthony's farewell, he sure didn't go out on a high note.

Anthony scored just eight points in the Denver Nuggets' 96-87 loss to the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday night, putting a sour finish on a day filled with speculation that the superstar's departure from Denver was close after 7½ seasons.

A person with knowledge of the discussions told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the Nuggets are closing in on a deal that would send Anthony to New Jersey in a three-team trade.

Anthony declined to comment on the latest trade speculation before the game, but his performance was one of the worst of his career.
