New York Knicks, It’s official: the Denver Nuggets have agreed to trade Carmelo Anthony for the New York Knicks on Monday night, with Ken Berger reports that the deal will go through the approval process for the NBA on Tuesday. New York Knicks get: Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Anthony Carter, Shelden Williams, Renaldo Balkman to Denver Nuggets over the Minnesota Timberwolves Corey Brewer. Denver Nuggets get: Timofey Mozgova, Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari and Raymond Felton of the Knicks in the first round over New York in 2014 and takes Golden State pick in the second round in 2012 and 2013 and 3 million dollars and the Knicks.
Minnesota Timberwolves get: Anthony Randolph and Eddy curry over $ 3 million the New York Knicks. Before the new-look New York Knicks make their debut, most likely Wednesday against the Milwaukee Bucks, all we have is speculation about how Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups and the other newcomers meshes with Amare Stoudemire, Landry Fields and effectiveness of other Knicks. Among all these conjectures subjective system of basketball Prospectus’ projection SCHOENE has the ability to provide a numerical point of view.
Ordinarily, Schoen seeks to project both players and teams. In this case we have a pretty good idea of the capacity of actors in New York. Our questions are about how they will fit together. Thanks to their performances from the past three years, weighted toward more recent play, and an educated guess about how coach Mike D’Antoni could distribute minutes, here’s a preview of what we can expect the rotation Knicks.
The agreement, first by the Denver Post Monday, is set to be finalized Tuesday in a conference call with the NBA office, according to a source who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The Knicks would send Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Fallinari, Timofey Mozgova, and a project in 2014 in the first round of selection for the Nuggets, who takes extra and cash equivalents.
ESPN’s Chris Broussard reports the swap is a contract for three teams, including the Minnesota Timberwolves to acquire Eddy Curry and Anthony Randolph of the Knicks Corey Brewer.
The agreement is without doubt the Knicks, hoping Anthony would be in uniform Wednesday when they host the Milwaukee Bucks, a more legitimate competitor in a stacked Eastern Conference with Boston Celtics, Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls.
New Jersey Nets, however, were left in the cold. According to the New York Post, the Nets were looking to send two first-round pick against Denver and Devin Harris to Dallas to receive Mozgova and Felton Nuggets plus a first-round pick of the Mavericks.
“I’m 100 percent behind the decision we made, even if it will be dangerous and it will not be the veteran leader back there,” said Karl. “Felton, I thought I had a good season this year. But I think Ty (Lawson) and Felton will be a great challenge to live up to what Chauncey has given us in recent years. “Asked who his starting point guard would be,” said Karl, “Probably Ty” and then went Brown in his SUV and drove away.
