'Melo: "Wherever I go, I'm going to sign the extension"

Al Harrington has said he couldn't sleep if, like his teammate Carmelo Anthony, he had a $65 million contract extension "sitting on the table".  Apparently, Melo feels the same way.  Amid speculation that he would wait out the season, give up the extension and sign with the Knicks, the Nugget All-Star was asked Saturday about the extension and the Nets.

Was there a scenario where he would sign the extension to play for the Nets? he was asked.

"Wherever I go, I'm going to sign the extension," he replied.

But then he was asked, "If they come to you and say, 'We have a deal to send you to the Nets,' would you sign?"

"I don't know," Anthony said. "I don't know. I'd have to deal with that when it comes."

As has been reported, the likely scenario would be for the Nets and Nuggets to agree to a deal, then the Nuggets would grant the Nets permission to talk with Anthony about an extension. Meanwhile, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post looks at what 'Melo does best: win games.
