ESPN: Melo close to extension

Why am I liking him more ahead of the three who are in this year's class?

Quote:
The Denver Nuggets and Carmelo Anthony are making significant progress on a contract extension that would result in Anthony landing a new contract this offseason along with fellow 2003 draftees LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, according to sources with knowledge of the discussions.

Although holding off to exercise an opt-out clause after the 2010-11 season would make him next summer's face of free agency -- like James is now -- sources told ESPN.com this week that Anthony is increasingly eager to secure his future more immediately. Anthony's last contract did not have an opt-out clause after three years like free agents-to-be James, Wade and Bosh possess, but Anthony is eligible for an extension with the Nuggets at any time up to June 30, 2011.

A three-year max extension worth more than $60 million could be announced within days of Thursday's draft, sources said. Another source estimated the timetable at "a couple of weeks."

he's loyal to the fan base and wants to have his number retired, now that is much more better than chasing fat contracts

He is doing his extention before the new CBA changes everything. He won't be able to be a free agent before the new CBA (unless the NBA does something unexpected and uses it's option for the 2011/12 year). For him to resign under the curent rules he has to do it before the end of next season.

I bet if he had to do it over he would have signed the same deals as Wade, James, Bosh.

The biggest victim here is NY. They will no longer have back-up plan "offseason 2011".
