Link - Sources: Carmelo Anthony likely to go

All signs continue to point toward the eventual divorce between Carmelo Anthony and the Denver Nuggets.

League sources say it is now a matter of when, not if, Anthony and the Nuggets will go their separate ways.

Anthony is weighing whether to sign a three-year, $65 million extension offered by the Nuggets. His dilemma, league sources say, is what affords him the best chance of continuing his career elsewhere. Anthony could sign with Denver and convince the team to then trade him. His other option would be to not sign the extension, thereby forcing the team to move him rather than risk losing him next summer as a free agent.

During his annual basketball camp in Colorado on Saturday, Anthony said he had no timetable on when he'll decide whether to sign the extension.

In either case, "he's going to make it real clear that he's not coming back," said one league source.
As Bucher states (video, audio, article), the logical thinking is that Melo's going to work his way to the New York Knicks - not if, but when - given that there are too many hard links between he and the city.

I have no doubt that by 2012, Melo and Paul will be playing alongside Amare with the Knicks.

This does not bode well for the future of our beloved Toronto Raptors.
