Multiple league sources confirmed that the Pistons, New Jersey Nets and the Denver Nuggets were close to agreeing on a deal that could be a 17-player megadeal.  But, the primary pieces remain intact in the deal that now has anywhere from a dozen to 15 players.  The prized chip, Carmelo Anthony, would head to the Nets, who also would receive Chauncey Billups from Denver and Rip Hamilton from Detroit.
