I love Gallo, but if just Gallo Curry and pick can get it done thats a good deal for us.
Listening to Micheal Kay on espn 1050, this is the latest according to his sources close to the situation. The Knicks are offering Eddy Curry, Danilo Gallinari, and a future 1st round draft pick for Carmelo.
Please not Gallo!!!!!!!!!!!!
Did ESPN or other sources report it yet?
No thanks. Don't wanna give up Gallo.
Melo also has one year left on his contract. You never know if him wanting to play for New York could mean Brooklyn.
You guys are nuts if you wouldn't signed off for Curry, Gallo, and a pick... Thats a very fair deal. We keep all the golden state guys, chandler, and douglas.
Gallo could be very good but Melo is great right now. I personally think we'd have to give up more to get him.
I know nothing is official yet. it's all talk. And I suspect Melo will be a Denver Nuggets' player at the beginning of the season.
During his Tuesday show on ESPN Radio in New York, Michael Kay cited sources in reporting that the Knicks will offer Gallinari, a future first-round pick and Eddy Curry in a bid to acquire Carmelo Anthony from Denver.
Curry's contract would be needed to work to make the trade work under the salary cap.

I'm sure Donnie doesnt want to give up Gallo neither but you gotta give some to get some.
Im just gonna pray that we can have both Gallo and Melo. We need shooters. Gallo is a shooter.
ONLY GREATNESS EQUALS GREATNESS
And you're right. We need shooters. If we give up Gallo for Melo, we will be an awful shooting team in a system that depends on shooting.
I'm also not convinced Melo and Amare would compliment each other very well. Both players do not pass very well and will dominate the ball in a system that also demands ball movement.
But on the other hand, this is a fair deal and gives us that 2nd superstar. So I guess you have to do it. I'm just disappointed in seeing this team dismantled before we even get a chance to watch them play. I was really excited to see this team run.
Quite possible that while Melo does want NYK and is willing to apply some pressure to get it done (ie --a-- deal), he isn't going to go all out, totally spurn any talk of extension, and actually strong-arm a feel on our behalf.
Hence we need to still give to get, and close out all possibility that Melo doesn't come as a FA.
Thos reminds me of when the Yankees traded Soriano for Arod. Gallo younger, Soriano more proven, but pretty similar especially in how it was/is perceived by fans.
I'd pull trigger.
No more talk of us on the rise. Let's be up and still rise more.
Depending on AR-47 being a keeper, we spend next FA or two looking to bring in a stud 2 (maybe a 1).
? (any chance Parker would play the 2 lol...)
Douglas, Walker, Jordan, Moz off bench
That's a laughable offer, 2014 before Denver sees that pick so it practically has zero value. Any mention of Curry in a package is doing the Knicks a favor and probably wouldn't interest Denver except in a salary dump. So it's basically Gallo for Melo, are u kidding me. If the Knicks are serious they have to include Randolph or Chandler at a minimum or Stat in a straight up deal.
we gotta do this trade if the nuggets accept...
and heres why... if melo gets traded to a team and they go far in the playoffs he will sign an extension with that team and willnot be a free agent next year.. he wants the extension just doesnt want it in denver... we cant take that risk... all we know is gallo can turn out to be another marco belini..
FYI: Melo is a pretty good passer.
