Carmelo says he's focusing on basketball

DENVER (AP) - Carmelo Anthony said he loves being with the Denver Nuggets and is happy to go through the season with free agency a real possibility next summer.

The Nuggets forward, who has been the subject of trade talk for months, said after the second day of training camp Wednesday he is content to suit up again for Denver on opening night.

With the potential trade that would have sent Anthony to the New Jersey Nets having fallen through, Anthony is focusing on his current team. He said he came into camp 5 pounds lighter than last year, and he's feeling stronger and leaner.

Meanwhile, trade talks have been going on, but he said the Nuggets' front office never discussed a deal with the Nets.
