Carmelo Anthony: “While their offer of a hefty contract extension proves the Nuggets hope Anthony will remain the face of the franchise for years to come, the team is prepared to trade Melo rather than let him walk as a free agent next summer, according to a source familiar with the negotiations. At a salary of $17 million, Anthony is committed to play for Denver during the upcoming season … Anthony can opt out of his contract next summer, and free agency might appear all the more tempting after seeing the league-wide groveling James has instigated.” Wonder if the Nuggets planted this because their talks with him re-signing went nowhere. Maybe the front office is having problems. Got a feeling it backfires. [Denver Post]
