Nuggets set for 'Melo circus in New Jersey

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Carmelo Anthony is heading to New Jersey - with the Denver Nuggets.

Anthony and the Nuggets make a visit Monday to New Jersey for the first time since Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov ended the drawn-out trade talks with Denver.

Coach George Karl says he doesn't know how the fans will react to Anthony when he hits the court. Karl, speaking before Sunday's game against the 76ers, expects an added intensity for the game.

Karl says he's proud of the way the Nuggets have handled the Anthony trade circus.

Prokhorov canceled a planned meeting with Anthony, ending any chance for now of a three-team deal between the Nets, Nuggets and Detroit Pistons.

Anthony did not talk to the media before Sunday's game.
