Espn is reporting tonight that the Knicks finally pulled the trigger on getting Carmelo to MSG. Denver gets Chandler, Gallinari, Felton, Mozgov, draft picks and cash. The Knicks get Carmelo, Chauncey, Anthony Carter, and Renaldo Balkman. Here's the link to the writeup: http://sports.espn.go.com/new-york/nba/news/story?id=6145912
What's interesting to Clipper fans is whether Denver flips Gallinari and, if so, to what team. The New York Times reported earlier today that the Nets and Clippers are interested in acquiring Gallinari.
“If Gallinari lands in Denver, the Nets will not be the only ones pursuing him. The Los Angeles Clippers are also prepared to trade a first-round pick for Gallinari, according to two people involved in the discussion.
The Nuggets are open to flipping the 22-year-old Gallinari in a second deal because team officials disagree about his potential.”
The Knicks give up a lot of assets for a guy who, in my opinion, is not a Top 10 player. Denver isn’t finished re-making their team yet and will make more deals. Clipper fans, what would you give up for Gallinari?
