Wizards asked about Melo

The Wizards recently made an ‘obligatory’ call about Carmelo Anthony, but it’s very unlikely that Melo will end up playing alongside John Wall. From the Washington Post: “Take it for what it’s worth, but the Wizards recently made an obligatory call to the Denver Nuggets to check on the availability of all-star forward Carmelo Anthony, a league source said on Friday. The source added that the Wizards were simply doing their due diligence and that the same phone call was made by ’29 teams. Carmelo is pretty good.’ Multiple Internet reports have made it clear that Anthony is looking to move elsewhere. Anthony will earn $17 million in the final year of his deal, but has stalled all summer to sign a $65 million extension with the Nuggets, the only team for which he has played since going third in the 2003 draft.”
