Carmelo wants out

NEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony wants his money, even if he’s not saying where he wants it. Anthony made clear Sunday the importance of a contract extension, which he’s thus far refused to sign with the Denver Nuggets. He also said he doesn’t think the Nuggets would trade him somewhere he wouldn’t accept one. After the Nuggets’ 129-125 loss to the Knicks, the team Anthony reportedly wants to play for, he was asked the importance of getting an extension before the collective bargaining agreement expires next summer. The NBA wants major salary cuts in the next deal. ESPN.com reported later Sunday that Anthony would only accept a long-term extension if it came with a trade to the Knicks. The Nuggets offered him one worth about US$65 million over three years during the summer, but he has said he wanted to keep his options open. He can become a free agent next summer, but Denver would likely attempt to trade him before rather than risk losing him for nothing.
