DENVER — Chauncey Billups has grown so immune to the constantly swirling trade rumors involving Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony that he simply tunes out the chatter.

Even when his own name surfaces.

The Denver native and Nuggets point guard has been mentioned in the most recent trade rumors to pop up. ESPN, citing unnamed sources, said the New Jersey Nets are trying to get the Detroit Pistons involved in a deal to acquire Anthony, and Billups would be thrown into the mix as well.

The Nuggets wouldn't comment on the speculation.
