Carmelo downplays trade rumors

DENVER (AP) - Any other time, Carmelo Anthony's balky right knee might draw more attention.

Instead, the nagging injury took a back seat to a much bigger and broader question: Does the All-Star still want to be a member of the Denver Nuggets?

Following a four-game road trip, Anthony insisted it was good to be home - even if he has no idea how much longer this may still be home.

Anthony has been the subject of trade speculation since spurning the Nuggets' three-year, $65 million extension over the summer.

The rumor mill cranked up over the weekend as Anthony played in New York against the Knicks, a team he reportedly has interest in playing for one day.

He downplayed all the reports that surfaced while he was in the Big Apple.
