So it looks like a few sources are saying there is a deal very close to being consumated. According to Kurt Helin of NBC Sports:
Multiple sources now report that the trade of Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks happening later tonight or tomorrow.
The Denver Post called the trade “imminent” while a source told the New York Times, “We’re about to dot the i’s and cross the t’s.” Newsday and Yahoo reporters also have similar reports.
Carmelo Anthony did not take part in Nuggets practice today.
The latest version of this has it a three-team trade that also includes Minnesota. The Knicks would get Anthony, Chauncey Billups Shelden Williams and Renaldo Balkman. The Nuggets would get Raymond Felton (who likely would be traded again before the deadline), Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, the Knicks 2014 first-round pick and Corey Brewer from Minnesota. Minnesota would get Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry’s expiring contract from the Knicks.
Should the Knicks trade Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, their 2014 first-round pick, Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry for Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups Shelden Williams and Renaldo Balkman?
