Denver Nuggets scoring leader Michael Adams says if the club doesn't pay him more money he will take his services elsewhere.

Adams signed a five-year contract eight months ago that paid him $825,000 for the season and was worth a total of $5 million.Then the Nuggets signed top draft pick Chris Jackson, also a point guard, to a four-year, $10 million contract. Jackson was paid $1.65 million for the just-ended season, twice what Adams made.

Adams is the only top-10 scorer in the NBA earning less than $1 million a year. Five Nuggets were paid more than Adams last season.

Asked if he will be back in a Nuggets uniform without a raise, Adams replied Tuesday, "I would hope to say not."
