The new word on the court is that Carmelo Anthony will NOT be extending his contract with the Denver Nuggets after this upcoming season, and it’s rumored that he’ll be traded to the New York Knicks when he becomes a free agent for next season.

Anthony is weighing whether to sign a three-year, $65 million extension offered by the Nuggets. His dilemma, league sources say, is what affords him the best chance of continuing his career elsewhere. Anthony could sign with Denver and convince the team to then trade him. His other option would be to not sign the extension, thereby forcing the team to move him rather than risk losing him next summer as a free agent.
During his annual basketball camp in Colorado on Saturday, Anthony said he had no timetable on when he’ll decide whether to sign the extension. In either case, “he’s going to make it real clear that he’s not coming back,” said one league source.
It’s hard to imagine Carmelo playing basketball without the Nuggets jersey on after he’s been playing with them for so long, however switching to the Knicks might be a good career move for Melo!
