New York Knicks: Post-Carmelo Anthony Trade, How Are New and Old Knicks Doing?

The New York Knicks sit exactly where they were—two games above .500 and sixth place in the Eastern Conference—before the blockbuster trade that sent Carmelo Anthony to Madison Square Garden on February 22.

Meanwhile, the Denver Nuggets are 7-2 since their new players have taken the floor (8-2 if you count their transition game between Anthony's departure and the new Nuggets' arrival).

In the aforementioned 13-player, three-team deal, Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman went from Denver to New York. Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler and Timofey Mozgov packed their bags for the Rocky Mountains. Eddy Curry and Anthony Randolph also went to Minnesota, and Corey Brewer came to New York, but Brewer was soon released and picked up by the Dallas Mavericks. Kosta Koufos also left Minnesota, eventually landing in Denver. Draft picks and cash also exchanged hands as part of the deal.

The Knicks picked up Derrick Brown and Jared Jeffries to fill out roster spots. Brown and Jeffries had been released by Charlotte and Houston, respectively, during the season.

With that mouthful out of the way, let's grade the seven Knicks that joined the team midseason.

As an addendum, the old Knicks' stats with their new teams are on the final slide.

Note: The grades are relative to a player's expectations and given on a curve. So before you go up in arms about Anthony Carter being graded higher than Chauncey Billups, realize that while Billups has a bigger on-court impact and is a much better player, Carter is exceeding expectations while Billups has not met them yet, even prior to his injury.
