Carmelo Anthony will be a member of the Denver Nuggets next season -- whether he accepts the team's offer of a contract extension or not.

With speculation that Denver may trade their All-Star forward growing over the past week, a high-ranking Nuggets official said the club has no intentions of moving its best player.

"There is no way we are trading Carmelo Anthony," the official said. "We're 100 percent certain of that."


Carmelo Anthony has until July 1, 2011 to accept the Nuggets' three-year, $65 million offer, which team officials are confident he will sign.
Anthony can opt out of his contract after next season and become a free agent, one year after other top members of his draft class have potentially turned this summer into the most volatile in league history.

To avoid that scenario, the Nuggets have offered Anthony a three-year, $65 million contract extension that would keep him in Denver until 2015.

Anthony has plenty of financial incentives to sign the deal because the league will have a new collective bargaining agreement after next season that is expected to be far less lucrative for players.

So by declining Denver's offer, Anthony could be leaving tens of millions of dollars on the table.

Good news. If the Nuggets are competitive they can get him to sign that extension.

K-Mart's expirer will net them some talent.

Good idea to come out publically to say this even if he doesn't sign. That way they don't seem desperate if they end up do trading him so teams don't just try to giver them garbage.

Melo is also seriously considering signing the extension Denver offered him. http://www.denverpost.com/ci_15443721


Nuggets all-star Carmelo Anthony is very serious about accepting the team's contract extension, but Anthony is still waiting to hear about the team's attempts to improve the frontcourt, a league source said today.

Funny how when he decides to stay the topic gets a considerable less amount of people in it. Still way happy about this I'm pretty much just happy about getting him back, I mean he stands to make 20+ million a year, thats a lot of cash.

Quite frankly I think this whole ordeal is his way of scaring the Front Office into doing something.
