Tony Parker has signed a multi-year contract extension.

For some this may come as sad or even devastating news. I on the other hand... For some reason it seems like he's been in the league forever, I thought he was like 34 but he's actually only 28. His extension with the Spurs is delightful news, god knows how much money he would have been pushing for in the free agency. He would make our team better but what would the cost be? Max? Near max? I'll pass but thanks anyway.
I was told recently by sources close to Carmelo Anthony that he is hesitant about agreeing to a trade to the New Jersey Nets and that he is willing to wait all the way until the February trade deadline in an effort to force his way to the New York Knicks. Because Denver would not want to risk losing Anthony for nothing as a free agent next summer, the feeling is that it would eventually trade him to New York at the deadline just to get something back in return.
There is a strong feeling around the league, however, that Anthony would accept a trade to New Jersey (and thereby agree to sign a contract extension with the Nets) just to get out of Denver.
If this is true maybe trading for Carmelo wouldn't be as bad as we first imagined. We trade them Eddy Curry and Roger Mason Jr. days before the trade deadine and they either take the trash or go on without it and get Lebroned . I don't buy into sources much but as you may know I do enjoy some speculation. If Carmelo is actually holding Denver by the balls to play here that shows commitment... Well commitment to us not Denver. Also, is Denver so bad that he would sign with the Nets just to get out of Colorado? Is someone trying to kill him? In the meantime be ready to see and hear more of Broussard my friends. The mole has crawled out of his hole and with Melo trade talks heating up everyday we'll be seeing him a lot more. It'll be like the free agency all over again. By the way, he'll be outside of MSG on 1050 ESPN co-hosting with Bill Daughtry from 4-7 for anyone who's interested.
