Three-Year Extension Talks For Carmelo Anthony?

Denver is understandably eager to lock up its franchise player, and Melo would like to extend his contract before the new Collective Bargaining Agreement goes into effect in 2011: “Since Anthony, who turns 26 later this month, isn’t a free agent this summer, he is free to discuss an extension with his team prior to the opening of the negotiating period July 1. The Nuggets, fully aware that Anthony would be in high demand in 2011 among teams that strike out in their pursuit of James, Dwyane Wade and other marquee free agents this summer, are hopeful that this will be the first step toward ‘making Melo a Nugget for a long time,’ one of the people familiar with the team’s strategy said.”

    In other NW news. Chris Dudley is the republican pick as Oregon’s governer.. Amazing how he can go from greatest center to ever play to gov. That would be like if Jordan became the US president..

    JR Smith is fine at the 2 spot, they don’t need freaking Joe Johnson. Maybe bring in a stronger center and some key roleplayers, but other than that the Nuggets’ roster is pretty solid.

    I like J.R. as much as anybody, but SOMEBODY doesn’t think he’s good enough. Sadly, that somebody is the Denver coaching staff. That’s why Afflalo starts and had just about as many minutes-per-game last year. I think we must face the fact that the Denver coaching staff is not comfortable with J.R. as the first option at shooting guard. As much as they need a big, I wouldn’t be surprised if they made moves on a two, as well.
