Carmelo Anthony: Nuggets Star Won't Sign Extension Unless He's Sent to New York
The Carmelo Anthony petulant-athlete saga continues, as a source close to the player told ESPN Sunday that Anthony refuses to sign the contract extension being offered by the Nuggets until the team guarantees a trade to the Knicks.
The source revealed what has been speculated on for weeks. The petulant forward has been angling to be dealt to the Knicks for some time now, and has been asking for the Nuggets, who posted a four-year, $65 million dollar extension proposal, to trade him.
Needless to say, the Nuggets, who must feel backed into a corner now that Anthony has publicly sabotaged any hope they had of getting equivalent value for the superstar, have yet to trade Anthony, although a has been in the works with the Knicks for some time now.
Anthony, 26, is averaging 23.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game this season for the 14-9 Nuggets. He's battled injury recently, but returned to the lineup Sunday against the (guess who?) New York Knicks (shocking right?) and scored a team high 31 points.
