    So glad this is over. This story was really becoming annoying.

    Re: Melo to the Knicks

    Denver absolutely killed in this deal. Don't know what the Knicks were thinking.

    Re: Melo to the Knicks

    As a Sixers fan I am not really worried. Carmelo can't/doesn't play D. He scores 30, but he also gives up 30.

    Re: Melo to the Knicks

    The only part I don't like is getting rid of Felton. He was turning into a good point guard

    I don't agree. The Knicks did give up a lot of solid young talent but no superstars. At this point it takes at least two great players to win a championship. It's much easier to get five decent role players than 2 of the league's best, especially to get them to come to Denver.

    Carmelo Anthony has officially been traded (along with Renaldo Balkman) to the New York Knicks in exchange for Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov, the Knicks 2014 first-round draft pick, the Warriors’ 2012 second-round pick and the Warriors’ 2013 second-round pick. Along with Melo and Balkman, the Knicks also get Anthony Carter and Sheldon Williams. Anthony Randolph and Eddie Curry are headed to Minnesota along with the $3 million.

    The Knicks panicked and gave up too much. Why give up all that when Carmelo probably would have signed there this summer anyway. D'Antoni's offense needs a quality pg to succeed and if the cap comes down as is expected this summer they won't have room to go after paul or deron williams next summer. Carmelo's not going to get NYK past the second round of the playoffs.

    Knicks had all the leverage in the world and they still gave up an *** ton. The only team Melo wanted to go to was NY, don't know why they gave up so much.

    And Carmelo isn't a great player, I think he's highly overrated.

    ESPN is obsessed with trying to make the NBA relevant. They've been trumpeting up this Melo trade talk like the guy is Michael Jordan

    Re: Melo to the Knicks

    None of those draft picks have much value. Felton is overrated unless he is in D'antoni's system, Mozgoz and Gallinari are unproven young players who won't be able to lead a team in the near future, and Wilson Chandler is an exciting bench player on a contender. Carter, Williams, and Curry are useless while Randolph is similar to Chandler.
