The Denver Nuggets routed the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night, but Carmelo Anthony(notes) told Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears that he still isn't planning to sign the three-year, $64 million extension offer.
"They want to sit down and talk, but my thing is it's way beyond this year," Anthony told Yahoo! Sports. "It ain't got nothing to do with the new GM, Josh, the players. For me, I feel it's a time for change. If I do nothing now, I'm never going to do anything. I feel like my time is now to make a decision if I want to leave or if I want to stay."
Among the barriers to a trade being made is that Anthony has a $1 million "trade kicker" in his contract, Spears reports.
