Melo's Money Choice

The assumption has always been that Carmelo Anthony wouldn't want to walk away from a $65 million contract extension and take his chances as a free agent under a new collective bargaining agreement.  But what if the NBA owners were able to force a massive rollback of everyone's salary as part of that agreement?

How would that affect his choices?

It's what happened when the NHL went through a lockout four years ago.  The players association wound up taking a 24% pay cut.  That is HIGHLY unlikely to happen in the NBA, but long work stoppages often lead to surprising changes in union contracts. And if 'Melo thought it was possible, his incentive to agree to an extension before the trade deadline might be lessened. Colin Stephenson examines his options...and the Nets.
