Carmelo Anthony Traded To New York Knicks

After months of speculating about of the future of Carmelo Anthony, we now know that he will be a member of the New York Knicks after the Nuggets agreed to trade their All Star to the Big Apple on Monday night.

Making the trip east with Anthony will be Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman.  In return for the face of the franchise, the Nuggets will receive Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Timothy Mozgov, three draft picks and $3 million.

The Knicks will also send Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry to the Timberwolves while Corey Brewer comes from Minnesota to New York.

Per the Denver Post, the draft picks going from the Knicks to the Nuggets will be New York's 2014 first rounder and Golden State's second-round selections in 2012 and 2013.

Now that owner James Dolan and the Knicks have their man, the focus squarely shines on the New Jersey Nets, who are still searching for their own star.

Rumors have been flying that Devin Harris -- a main part of New Jersey's package for Anthony -- could be off to the Portland Trailblazers, or even sent back to the Dallas Mavericks as part of a three-team trade with the Nuggets.  Any deal with the Nuggets would return at least two of the players Denver received for Anthony.

From the very beginning it was assumed that no matter how hard the Nuggets tried to engage other teams in a trade for Anthony, that the forward's desire to be in New York would be the determining factor. That turns out to be true as the Knicks bring Anthony back home and will make a run for the playoffs with a "Big Three" of their own of Amar'e Stoudemire, Anthony and Billups.
