More Bad News: Melo Reportedly Won't Sign Extension



via SB Nation Denver:

 

Prepare for the Summer of Carmelo. Indeed, what LeBron was to 2010, Carmelo figures to be to 2011. At least, if a report from HoopsWorld's Alex Kennedy is to be believed. According to Kennedy, sources close to Anthony have indicated that the Nuggets star will eschew signing an extension with Denver in order to become a free agent next summer.

Given that Anthony has had a max offer on the table from the Nuggets for the past several weeks, it would hardly be surprising that he would not re-sign with Denver now; if he was going to, he likely already would have. Still, Anthony has at least the rest of the season to mull over the Nuggets' offer. The bigger issue is that there will likely be a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) next summer (and possibly a lockout), that would presumably limit the size of contracts. By waiting to sign, Anthony could be forgoing a sizable chunk of change. Again according to Kennedy, Anthony isn't too worried about these risks, and prefers the freedom of free agency to the certainty of an extension.

If Anthony does reach free agency, he will be the undisputed prize among a class that will lack the depth of this past year's loaded crew. The Knicks, in particular, have made no secret of how much they covet the former Syracuse star. A final sign of which way Anthony may be leaning are reports that he has put his Denver home up for sale....

I think he's using old info and just passing it as new info and I never trust Kennedy (he's been wrong multiple times) but he makes some points and I'm very scared, considering I've been optimistic about the current Melo situation but I'm nervous now. 

Also, I hope we could find a good replacement GM to make us better and make Melo re-sign.
