The Denver Nuggets have decided to temporarily back away from trade discussions involving Carmelo Anthony out of respect for the superstar, who is grieving the death of his sister, a person familiar with the situation told CBSSports.com.

Nuggets officials have begun informing teams that they will not be engaging in any further trade discussions, especially with the closeness of the tragedy to the Christmas holiday. The team announced Wednesday night that Anthony will not return to the team until after Christmas.

"It is a difficult time" for the Anthony family, "especially during the holidays," the person said.

Michelle Anthony, 36, died Tuesday in Baltimore of a pre-existing medical condition. She is survived by her four children.

Whether or not the Denver organization did what they did out of the kindness of their heart or for their own gain doesn't entitle you to insult people for looking on the positive side of the of this unfortunate situation. How do you have All-Star status when you make coments like this?

Wow. What a classy move by the Nuggets organization.  Seperating life from the business of basketball, knowing that the man doesnt even want to play there and they still took the high road.  Somethings are more important and I am glad to hear the organization respects Carmelo enough to do so.
