New York State Of Mind for Carmelo

The Knicks and Denver Nuggets agreed to a blockbuster three-team trade on Monday night that sends the All-Star forward to the Big Apple, where he has publicly stated he would like to play.  The deal does not become official until a conference call with the league takes place on Tuesday.  The deal ends the trade saga that has been going on what seems like forever, involving Denver’s All-Star forward and sends him to the New York Knicks. Carmelo is expected to sign a three-year, $65 million extension with the Knicks, where he will play with his good friend Amare Stoudemire.  Part of the deal includes the Knicks sending  Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov and a 2014 first-round draft pick to the Nuggets, who will also get additional picks and cash.  Along with Anthony, New York will get Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman from Denver.  The Minnesota Timberwolves got involved to help the Knicks clear salary space to accomodate the new players. The Knicks ship Anthony Randolph, the expiring contract of Eddy Curry and $3 million to the Wolves in exchange for Corey Brewer.  Again this deal does not become official until the league approves it sometime today.  Check back with the Kimberley Vassal Insurance blog to stay updated with this situation.
