Representatives of NBA star Carmelo Anthony are negotiating with federal and state officials who want the Baltimore native to participate in a marketing campaign to combat the growing problem of witness intimidation. "He definitely will be outreaching to the community. The complete details aren't formed yet," said Jane Yin, a spokeswoman with BDA Sports Management, a Walnut Creek, Calif.-based firm that represents the 20-year-old National Basketball Association player. Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, a Baltimore Democrat, said yesterday that he is trying to conclude talks with Anthony's agents about the Denver Nuggets forward filming public service announcements that would be produced by the Office of National Drug Control Policy.
