Nuggets close in on deal to send Melo to Knicks

LOS ANGELES — The Nuggets appear to be closing in on a deal to trade star forward Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks.
The teams talked through the weekend and are working out the final details of what would be a blockbuster trade. NBA commissioner David Stern did not want a major trade announced on the day of the All-Star Game.

While final details were still being negotiated, the latest trade offer includes New York sending guard Raymond Felton, forwards Wilson Chand-ler and Danilo Gallinari, centers Timofey Mozgov and Eddy Curry and a first-round draft pick to the Nuggets for Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams and Anthony Carter or Renaldo Balkman, according to NBA sources.
"I said I hoped to have a word by today, one way or another," Anthony said Sunday after the All-Star Game at the Staples Center. "I've been up early dealing with this and all the festivities, but the night is still young on this side (of the country)."

Nuggets officials are also talking about a megadeal with the New Jersey Nets, but that trade is less likely because Anthony hasn't indicated he would sign a contract extension to make it happen. Anthony will sign the extension to play for the Knicks.

"I haven't talked to anybody today from the Denver Nuggets organization," Anthony said after the game, "so as of right now, I'm still a Nugget."
Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov appeared to be all but bowing out of the competition Sunday, telling CNBC that he met with Anthony over the weekend in part to get the rival Knicks to increase their offer to Denver.

"I think we made a very good tactical decision to force (the) Knicks to pay as much as they can," Prokhorov said.
Anthony met with Prokhorov, Nets minority owner Jay-Z and general manager Billy King late Saturday.

Asked at the Staples Center before the game if he had any news on a deal, Prokhorov said, "I don't care."

The NBA's trading deadline is Thursday at 1 p.m. Mountain time. But it's likely the Nuggets will trade Anthony in the next day or two, in part because it would give them more time to finish reshaping their roster by Thursday. They are looking to get younger, stock draft picks and have more overall roster flexibility.

Knicks management — MSG chairman James Dolan, team president Donnie Walsh and coach Mike D'Antoni — was busy putting out brush fires Sunday that the Knicks were giving up too much for Anthony, releasing a statement to cool off rampant speculation that there was disagreement in the ranks.

"We want to make it abundantly clear that we have been in constant communication throughout this process and the three of us are in complete agreement with everything that we are currently working on," the statement said. "Together, we will do what is best for the long-term success of the franchise."

The Nuggets play Memphis on Tuesday at the Pepsi Center. There is a slim chance Anthony will be present that night in a Nuggets uniform.
"Yeah, of course," Anthony said when asked about playing Tuesday against the Grizzlies. "As of right now."

Anthony had eight points and seven rebounds for the West all-stars. He maintained throughout All-Star Weekend that he didn't know where trade talks stood, but hoped to have a resolution by the time he left Los Angeles.

"I still enjoyed this weekend, regardless of what was going on and what has been said," Anthony

Denver's Carmelo Anthony scored eight points Sunday in the All-Star Game. said.

He could soon be playing for the Knicks, with all-star center Amar'e Stoudemire his teammate.

"I'm not sure what the logistics are, but I think it's pretty much in Denver's hands," Stoudemire said Sunday. "So we are just waiting on them."

The Knicks' next game is Wednesday against Milwaukee, which is billed as "Legends Night" at Madison Square Garden.

Added Stoudemire: "We are playing well right now. We definitely can improve. I'm not the GM. We have to take it upon ourselves to get better. Until something happens, it's on us to really take that next step."

Anthony ranks third in Nuggets history in points scored (13,970) and is in the franchise's top 10 in games played (564), steals (634), 3-point field goals (410) and rebounds (3,566).
Billups would leave the Nuggets for the second time and be part of a New York team that could be in a position to not just make a playoff run but make noise. At 28-26, the Knicks are in sixth place in the Eastern Conference.

The Nuggets (32-25) begin the second half of the season in seventh place in the Western Conference. Four of their next five games are at home.

I'd rather keep Gallo. They can have Fields. Knicks will be a instant contender if this goes thru.

So it will be Melo, Fields and Amare if this goes through. Toney Douglas is a decent player but this squad would need a lot of work. Isiah screwed the Knicks plans up .. Everything Walsh done was wasted now that they are blowing up their roster.

Two players making a combined 40 million yearly. Good luck filling out the roster after the new Cba. Do the Knicks really need Carmelo lol. You have enough scoring. Sign a center and back up pg. And let Chandler fields gallow and Timmy develop while Felton and amare lead.

Yea I dont understand why billups is even in the trade but they can buy him out or trade him.

I dont know why knicks trying to please denver anyway. Give them Curry, 1st round pick, and one player. What choice do denver have.

Isiah and Dolan .. This whole situation is disgusting.. The trade was pushed for by them when ya'll could have waited if you really felt you needed Melo. I still believe also the Knicks are better off without Melo. They need to sign back-up players and a build a stronger front court (centers)

Obviously were not gonna keep Chandler after this year, so I'm good with him in any deal... but to give up Felton (who is better than Billups at this point) and Gallo, plus our big that has a lot of potential (mozgov) is f**king ridiculous. Its just too much.... atleast get birdman or someone else besides Sheldom Parker
