Carmelo Undecided On Contract Extension
HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. (AP/WFAN) Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony says he has no timetable on when he’ll decide whether to sign the team’s $65 million, three-year extension that’s been on the table all summer.
During his annual basketball camp at ThunderRidge High School, Anthony said he’s displayed his loyalty to Denver and the Nuggets over the last seven seasons, but “I’m just taking my time, figuring out if I want to take that extension or not.”
Anthony has been rumored to be interested in playing for the New York Knicks.
Anthony could become the headliner of the 2011 free agent class if he decides not to sign the extension or exercise the option on his current contract, which would pay him $18.5 million in 2011-12.
The Nuggets are searching for a new general manager but Anthony said that person won’t factor into his decision.
