With the trade deadline behind us, this summer’s free agency is coming into sharper focus. Carmelo Anthony has made it plain that he’ll opt out of his contract this year, but commenter rxbrgr sees reason for him to reconsider as his next destination continues to be a hot topic.

  • Would it make sense at all for Carmelo NOT to opt out this season? He’d still get a higher salary, and potentially set himself up for a higher max contract, plus he would be a free agent with the rest of the 2015 free agent class (that’s considered much better than this summer’s) and he could embark then on a Big Three quest with those free agents, finding a team with cap space for potentially three of them?

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh apparently aren’t willing to give Miami hometown discounts this summer, but merchie89 doesn’t think the Heat need to worry.

  • The Heat need to let Bosh and Wade leave, as long as LeBron will stay without them. People fail to realize that the Heat have one player under contract next year if these guys all opt out. LeBron+cap space=still favorites for championship.

The Wizards picked up Drew Gooden on a 10-day contract last week, and while the deal was still in the worksRaul advised Washington not to let the big man off the hook for spurning the team in 2010.

  • Funny how times change. One day you get traded to a team and refuse to go there and force another trade to somewhere else. The next day you are out of the league and couldn’t be happier going back to said place. I say leave him in the unemployment line.

We appreciate everyone who adds to the dialogue at Hoops Rumors, and we look forward to seeing more responses like these from you!

    Like this feature spotlighting HR commenting…and not just because I was mentioned. I hope the reader dialogue continues to grow here and we can continue to get a lot more conversation going on here. Good start.

      Thanks! That’s exactly what we’re trying to accomplish.

    I don’t think it ever makes sense for any near-max player NOT to opt out of their contract a year early. It’s just so much safer to get another 4-5 deal as soon as you can. Say Melo exercises the option, comes back, and shreds an ACL a year from today. Suddenly that opt-in could have awful consequences.
