Melo told the media in Denver that he’s fully committed to the team this season, but hinted at some disagreement with management’s outlook. From the Post: “Though Carmelo Anthony said all the right things Wednesday about playing for the Nuggets this season — ‘I would love to’ — and denied he was even asked to sign a contract extension to make a trade with the Nets work (contrary to what league sources said), he did give a small glimpse of behind-the-scenes disagreements. General manager Masai Ujiri and Denver front-office executives have publicly said they hoped that Melo would agree to re-sign with Denver, but they were unable to get a sitdown meeting with him this summer. On Wednesday, Melo said: ‘I met with Masai right before media day (Monday). He said what he had to say; I had what I had to say. We discussed a lot of things out there on the table.’ Then Anthony was asked, ‘Were the things he had to say different from the things you had to say?’ Melo: ‘Yes. Yes.'”
