Stay or Go: What’s Carmelo Anthony’s future with Denver Nuggets?
The Nuggets are pressing Carmelo Anthony for a long-term commitment, because if he declines a three-year, $65 million contract extension now on the table, the team must consider trading its leading scorer.
Trade Melo? Would the Nuggets really part ways with a 26-year-old forward in the prime of his NBA career? Denver might not have any choice.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The Denver Nuggets are fearful of the Chris Bosh syndrome occurring with Carmelo Anthony.
For instance, ‘Melo could pull a ‘CB4’ and leave ‘The Mile High City’ as an unrestricted free agent next summer to join a star-studded contending team.
This is the current trend in the NBA. The creme de la creme of players are in constant communication, scheming on building Dream Teams and trying for multiple championships.
So the Nuggets don’t want to lose Anthony and getting nothing back. Their franchise face must quickly decide if he’s in or out? Is he committed to Denver or looking to test the free agent waters?
If he won’t decide, the club, it seems, will decide for him.
