The Carmelo Anthony trade saga is finally over.
The Nuggets traded Melo to the New York Knicks tonight, a league source said. Denver gets Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov, the Knicks 2014 first-round draft pick, the Warriors' 2012 second-round pick, the Warriors' 2013 second-round pick and $3 million in cash.
Anthony will go to New York, along with Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman.
Anthony was not at the Nuggets' practice as the team resumed workouts following the All-Star break.

Also, Anthony Randolph's game might be more fictional than the tooth fairy. 2 different wide-open systems and ends up in the dog house in both of them.

If he goes to Minnesota, you honestly expect Kurt Rambis to play him? The same Kurt Rambis that dicked Kevin Love minutes last year.

Not doubting that. But certain players have a "thing". Amare and Felton had a
"thing" together. I doubt Amare will have that same type of chemistry with Chauncey, or he won't have it until later in the season. And Chauncey's a FA after this season.

Ehhh, the 8 year age difference + how well Felton has played w/ Amare thus far is definitely enough to say "he's chauncey" in terms of value over the next X amt of years this team's gonna possibly be a top team in the East.

The thing is I just still can't see them being higher than a 4 seed or maybe a 3 seed in in a good year, and if they get Williams/Paul at PG also change those numbers to 3 and 2.

Billups is such an underrated player. Never played with any sort of post presence like Amare and I expect him to completely exceed Felton's production in D'Antoni's system.

Billups is a year and a half player and then he's gone. They want that PG spot open and Billups contract is perfect for that as it's off the books in 2012.

Part of the reason, besides Melo not wanting to sign an extension with Denver, that he was traded could have been that the Nuggets owner(Kroenke) wanted to go into some sort of fire sale. 2 teams that he owns(Nuggets,Avs) have made 3 big trades within the past 4 days.

And fans are getting really pissed, or that's what the Denver Post sounded like.

Denver's got to flip some of those players so if they can actually flip Felton/Mozgov and move guys like JR Smith to some gullible team they will be in good shape. They will probably try and shop spare parts Al Harrington/K-Mart also.

They dont need any of those guys

SG- Affalo

Gallo is no way a 4. He'd get his ass killed in the West at 4.

Rumor is too that Denver is going to trade Nene to Dallas for Roddy B and Haywood. Why Denver would take on Haywood's deal is beyond me. They are also likely to trade J.R. Smith to New Orleans.

The Kings are the only team that I think has anything to do w/ being a 'home' team. I lived in CA in the summers after I moved to AZ from CA and I watched them w/ my older cousin during the 1993 playoffs. I've like the Knicks since at least 1993 because I know I was a Knicks fan during the Bulls/Suns series in 1993. Chiefs since 1994-1995ish. I like the Kings/Chiefs both because of my older cousin. Knicks dunno the reason. Blue Jays since 1999, PSU since 2000.

The Blue Jays story is the only one that's absolutely retarded, but I got what I deserve with a team that has a 0% chance at the playoffs every year.

Knicks also got Corey Brewer in the deal. Brewer is a good defender and could be a good 6th/7th man for the Knicks.

Brewer, Melo and Billups is a nice haul for the Knicks as well.

Brewer plays hard and really takes pride in his game, especially his defense. I could never tell if his lapses were the result of low bball IQ or bad coaching.

He has a team option next year, which the Knicks will pick up to keep max flexibility open for Deron or CP3.

His option won't play into in the least.

New Orleans is losing money hand over fist. Even if they do a sign and trade, they aren't going to want Billups' contract, even for a year. They'd sooner just let Paul walk then take Billups' bloated deal back.

No one is going to take on Harrington's contract. That's an awful deal.

The Nuggets can run out Gallinari and Chandler as forwards if they want to play small ball for spurts. They won't do it for 40 minutes a game, but it is a viable change of pace lineup.

Felton is just a good contract relative to his production.

This looks like a 52 win team and a 2nd round playoff loser to me. I don't see them getting another elite player with the new CBA down the pike.

Carmelo is a really, really good player. Definitely top 7-8 in the league, but his scoring ability is a little overrated. People talk about him as the "best pure scorer" in the league. They only say that because he doesn't really do anything else.

Who would NY beat in the first round? They're not beating any of the top 4 in the East to get to the 2nd round.

I think there are 9 players (Howard, Bron, Durant, Wade, Paul, Rose, Deron, Dirk, Kobe) I'd take over Melo, but he's very good and a top 10 player. I'd expect him to really bring it now in NY, so he could move up that list a bit.

I was talking more about down the road, once that team can fill out their cap space after jettisoning Billups.

Right now, that team is probably 5th-6th in the conference.

I'd put Carmelo in the same tier as Dirk and Howard. They all do something tremendously well, but they all have demonstrable flaws in their games.

Well, we'll see what they are able to do to fill things out, but I understand. The Celts age will cause a rebuild soon, and if Howard doesn't stay in Orlando then down they go.

Mine wasn't a ranking; I like your ranking, except I'd bump Melo below Howard and Dirk. Oh, and Paul is definitely ahead of those three. He'd be 6 for me. Deron may be in there also. Howard just impacts the game so much on the defensive end and on the glass, that I'll forgive him the FT shooting. Much like Shaq back in the day (not the defense, but the impact to the game). Dirk and Melo are actually pretty similar, I just feel Dirk is a bit more consistent. If we're talking beyond this year, I'd take Melo. Dirk is looking older than ever this season, and for the first time he's missing games.

The problem with LeBron, to me, is that his game has evolved only marginally since he came into the league.

With some of the great players of the past, they came into the league with a hole/holes in their game, but they put in the work to improve in that/those areas.

LeBron has the pure natural ability to be the best this game has ever seen, but lack of evolution in his game strongly suggests he doesn't have the work ethic to reach that level.

This is a pretty valid point about Melo's slow it down style.

The Knicks are a wide-open gunner type offense. While Melo is definitely a chucker, he milks the shot clock and isn't real fast with the ball, which would be a contrasting style to the way D'Antoni offenses have executed.

I think he'll do well there though.

Like I said earlier his post game will come around. Jordan didn't get his post game going until he couldn't blow by people like he used to.

WTF?

Yes Brooklyn is a borough of NYC (along with Manhattan, Staten Island, the Bronx and Queens) the Nets will play there next year, it is also where Carmelo grew up.

Anyone who is Carmelo's age and was born in Brooklyn most likely would have had a connection to the Knicks instead of the New Jersey Nets.

The point being he could ball in his hood again.

Butt Nuggets looked good last night.And they should get better. I've always liked the Nuggets a bit, but I can like them a lot more without Melo.

Butt Nuggets looked good last night.I think their playing better ball without him. They certainly aren't missing his defense. ROFL
