Melo going to the Knicks means the Timberpuppies are in the mix here, would be interesting to see what other pieces are added and/or sent. At least the possible addition of Anthony Randolph could make the last portion of the season pretty interesting. His athletic defensive play could make him a good center for when Love is on the floor. Awaiting more to float in about the trade.
On second glance, it looks like a straight up Denver and NY trade, wonder if that means its a future 1st rounder, or if the Wolves have already agreed on a different deal to send the Knicks a 1st?
PSS:The deal includes a 2014 1st rounder and 2 second round picks along with the 7 foot Russian center that Denver coveted... Looking more and more like the deal is ONLY between the Nugs and Knicks. Denver gets Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov, the Knicks 2014 first-round draft pick and 2 2nd rounders and NY gets Carmelo Anthony,Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman.
Yahoo Sports is reporting that Minnesota will get Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry and would only send Corey Brewer to the Nugs. No 1st rounder included? I like that prospect.
