The Knicks have been in talks with the Nuggets and Timberwolves about a possible three-team deal that would send Melo to New York. Here's how the deal would work:
Knicks receive: Carmelo Anthony
Timberwolves receive: Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry
Nuggets receive: Corey Brewer, Wilson Chandler and the T-Wolves first-round pick
It appears the Timberwolves are keeping this deal from happening because they want a little more in return than basically just Randolph. Eddy Curry is a free agent next year and will most likely not go back to Minnesota. The Knicks need to do whatever they have to do in order to get this deal done because this deal benefits the Knicks the most out of the three teams. We wouldn't have to give up Gallinari or Fields. We would basically just give up Chandler because Randolph and Curry never see the floor.
Here's a few options that the Knicks could do to convince the Timberwolves to make this deal happen:
-Send Toney Douglas to the Wolves along with Randolph and Curry
-Give the Wolves their second-round pick for this year coming up
-Give the Wolves their 2012 first-round pick
The Knicks need to make this deal happen as soon as possible. The Nuggets have not rejected it.
