One source with knowledge of the situation said, "They're probably not a player in this."
By all accounts, Anthony - who can be a free agent after the season - has given the Nuggets a list of four teams he would prefer to go to.
Again, by all accounts, New York and Chicago are at the top of the list, although New Jersey and Miami are also included. Some believe that the Nets could eventually have the most to offer, particularly since the Bulls seem to have no interest in including Joakim Noah in a package.
Houston is also said to be involved.
The source said some teams have contacted the Sixers about possibly serving as a third-party facilitator in a potential deal.
"The Sixers would get a player in something like that, but not Anthony," the source said. "They're not interested in that."
