Could the new CBA have a Franchise Tag in it, similar to the NFL's. Could a player like Carmelo really get screwed by not making himself a FA this summer and waiting one year. Could Denver get lucky and keep Carmelo no matter where he wqants to play.

I dont understand what makes the franchise tag any different than restricted free agency. You can basically match any offer and force the player to stay an extra year that way.

No it won't happen because the player union won't allow it, bank on it.

No. Though their have been rumblings that the new CBA may provide more incentive for guys to stay with the team that drafted them.
