Amar'e is eyeing help in the Big Apple
Ah, the New York Knicks.
The city where Carmelo Anthony “desires” to play.
This trade been in discussions forever, and seems to be getting closer to being completed.
Last week, the Knicks supposedly rejected a trade for Carmelo and company.
The trade evidently involved multiple players that would shake up the NBA for years.
Denver was offering Carmelo and Chauncey Billups in exchange for Danilo Gallinari, Eddy Curry (big expiring contract), Raymond Felton, and a first-round draft pick.
Wow. That trade would send shock waves all across the NBA.
The Knicks, at this point, have the best shot at landing ‘Melo and that will not likely change.
Carmelo has made it clear where he wants to play, and more importantly, where he will sign an extension.
If the Knicks don’t get the blockbuster deal done with Denver, they still have options.
The Timberwolves have recently called, looking to acquire forward Anthony Randolph.
If the Knicks decide Denver is asking too much for Anthony, don’t be surprised if New York makes a few small moves before the deadline.
New York can always just wait and try to sign Carmelo this summer, which is an increasingly likely scenario.
Stay by a computer or TV at all times this week, this trade could break at any second.
