The New York Knicks want Carmelo Anthony, but not for the price the Denver Nuggets are asking.
Tuesday there was a reported deal between the Knicks and Nuggets that the New York front office turned down.
We have heard all of the scenarios regarding Carmelo Anthony's departure from Denver, but now there is growing sentiment that the Nuggets may actually keep their franchise star with or without the contract extension instead of making a mediocre deal.
The Nuggets reportedly wanted Danilo Gallinari, Raymond Felton, another starter (Fields, Chandler or Mozgov) Eddy Curry's contract (which is unfortunately accompanied with is body) and at least one first-round pick for Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups.
The Knicks' Donnie Walsh and Mike D'Antoni said turned that down citing too much in return for the All-Star forward.
Here are five reasons the Knicks made the right move.
