    He's not worried about the 5th year. Looking at his recruitment statement
    (which btw he can only recruit players who are free agents and not every great player in the league) is him allowing other guys/teams to recruit him on championship pitches.

    In the end he signs for 5yrs $130mil because we've been through this before with Melo, he's about his money first no matter what he says. Chicago may be the only threat.
    Monday is the day we'll see all this begin to play out.

    Melo thinks he's slick because not many individuals(casual to semi diehards) know about cap rules. Melo would be entitled to make 105% of his previous yr's salary or max(whichever is greater) "if he waited to sign a new deal next summer" and not this summer. That means he'd be entitled to make 105% of $23mil in 2015 or max(35% of cap). So if he was seriously worried about financial loss, there is none really as long as he stays relatively healthy.

    Excerpt From Q16


    Team Salary Info
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Carmelo is scheduled to make $23,333,405 opt in year next year, which would still be a pay raise(7.5%) I don't want to hear this crap about well "it's not your money".....because David Lee and Nate Robinson essentially did the same thing for us their qualifying year.

    The free agents this team is supposedly targeting are free in 2015(Rondo, Love, Gasol etc etc) not 2014...therefore who in the hell is he trying to recruit this summer, that gets us closer to a title?

    Nice try Melo, you can fool all the others who want to be mind fudged by you, not me....my brain works and my heart does not pitter pat for your eyes only.

    This guy is the clown of all clowns....EPIC proportions.
    Which is exactly what Phil asked him to do but looks like he's passing up this option as I figured.

    Melo opting-out of a $23.5M season that the "ZEN" Phil Jackson will be incharge of are/is more FUNNIER than Rudy Gay opting-out of a $19M season with Sacramento Kings. Two over-paid JOKERS! LMAO

    Rudy Gay opted in. He chose to keep his $19.3mil he's slated to make on Sac's books this year. As did Amar'e and Bargs

    I would agree with u if Phil Jackson resign ball-hogging ISO-Melo, and rookie coach Fisher gives ISO-Melo 45 minutes per game.

    If Melo is not a Knicks next season then big-forwards Amare & Barg will have a 20-7 ending contract season playing 30 minutes per game shooting above 50%, that's without ISO-Melo controlling the ball, and without ball-hogging Melo controlling the head-coach substitution.
    There was a reason last season I labeled our coach "Puppet-Woodson" after watching 2 seasons of poor substitution coaching in the 2012, and 2013 playoffs.

    Chauncey Billups showed us in one playoff game that Carmelo Anthony has no-skills in playing the PG spot, and has no-skills at leading the point as a point-forward. And for two seasons we watch Puppet-Woodson let Carmelo Anthony play as the Knicks PG, point-forward, and PF. Three positions Carmelo Anthony has NO-SKILLS in performing.
    One of the season 2012-13 were save by HOF Jason Kidd playing PG in the 4th quarter of a 82 game season.
    Jason Kidd did not perform as the Knicks PG throughout the first 3 quarters of the game.

    Hopefully, for the sake of a winning Knicks team this will be the FINAL thread of Carmelo Anthony in KO.

    On October 15, 2013. Dum-Dum Carmelo should have announce taking a pay-cut at the end of the season for the Knicks. Not announce "Opting-Out" during the Preseason games.
    And then months later announce taking a "Pay-Cut" as a FA during the All-Star Games!
    when Melo found out at the all-star games the FA market in 2014 wasn't looking so good for a high salary star scorer...ha ha ha ha so the title of this thread are wrong.
    Melo announce taking a pay-cut during the all-star games for the 2014 FA market. Let's get it right.

    44% fg
    37% 3-ball
    Taking 23 shots per game, which doesn't include all the shots taking when fouled.
    Ball-hogging for 40 to 46 minutes a game.
    Plus letting his defenders get season/career high scoring.
    And defensive-switching he makes the entire team look bad.

    What he wrote was no skills for playing PG, point fwd and PF. No one doubts his skills as a scorer.

    I'd say has some PF skills (solid reb.). His assist totals bring his point skills into question.

    If Melo is still willing to come back to New York, maybe a contract like this could favor both Anthony & the Knicks...

    Bird Rights enabled the Knicks offer a two year deal with player option...

    $18 M first year
    $19.35 M second year
    $20.8 M player option

    The additional advantage for the Anthony camp would be having the ability three times before the end of the second year to invoke a trade out of New York... This works well for New York as well as it makes easier to find a trade partner, Melo would select 3 possible destinations for the Knicks to explore trade options and it will get done because it is part of this written underlinings of his contract...

    I doubt something like this would be presented as it gives all the power to the player and the league would shy against that happening and also doubt the Knicks' brass has any creative juice to write or present this to Carmelo Anthony in their meetings during free agency trying to lure him back to New York...

    There's no reason to ask for a new body once u wipe out all the cancer in the body.
    Puppet-Woodson's coaching-staff, ISO-Melo, JR.smith, Felton.
