Finally, it appears that Carmelo Anthony will be a New York Knick sometime during this week. 

ESPN's Chris Broussard has gotten reports from a few sources around the league that the Knicks, Denver Nuggets, and Minnesota Timberwolves have been in serious talks about a three-team deal that would send Carmelo to the Knicks. 

Let's just say...it's about time.

The deal would include Anthony going to the Knicks, Wilson Chandler, Corey Brewer and the Timberwolves first-round pick to Denver and Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry going to Minnesota.

After Melo comes to New York, what's next for the Knicks?  My opinion is that they should go for a solid center which they really need.  Amar'e Stoudamire has been playing center for the Knicks all year and has done a great job, but his primary position is at power forward.  If the Knicks acquire a good center by the deadline, Amar'e would move back to the 4 and the Knicks would have a scary lineup.  I will break down a few big name centers that the Knicks could acquire by February 24th.
