So Melo is a Knick and yes we gave up a lot but we did manage to keep Curry and AR which are def nice pieces to acquire another talent in the 12-15 mil range. Who can we get in a trade? Obviously a center is priority number one. Dalemmbert? Meh. I'm hoping Walsh has a trick up his sleeve to solidify this team. Any ideas who we can target? Mayo maybe?

DaTPRiNCE...That EGYPTiAN Fella, #MeloMafia
lol i'm not even gonna grill you cause i know you made this thread out of the pure excitement of this moment. gonna be a sick playoffs.
any shot Melo plays wednesday
Curry and Randolph went to Minny. It was the only way tis trade could work, numbers wise.
Denver probably got another 1st from Minny.
ESPN is making no mention of AR & Curry to MIN.
If that's the case, then I'm gonna say we trade them for Dalembert or Camby.
Brewer to Denver. AR and Curry to MN. Kind of expected this, desperation negotiating on the part of the Knicks. Other than signing Barron, this is our team for good or bad for the rest of the season.

The Nuggets requested on Saturday that the Knicks also include center Timofey Mozgov(notes) in their trade package and New York complied.
“I’m extremely happy for ‘Melo,” said Anthony’s agent, Leon Rose. “We are very appreciative to the Denver Nuggets organization for their efforts in assisting ‘Melo to get to New York. ‘Melo is excited and looking forward to playing for the Knicks.”
The Nuggets want to reroute two Knicks to the New Jersey Nets as part of a separate deal, including Felton and Mozgov, sources said. The Nets badly want to get rid of Devin Harris and have discussed a three-team with Denver and Dallas that would send Harris to the Mavericks, and bring Felton and Mozgov to New Jersey, sources said.
The Nets are considering sending Harris and Troy Murphy to Portland for Andre Miller and Joel Przybilla, but sources say that deal’s on the backburner. New Jersey would prefer Felton over Miller, sources say.
Nuggets president Josh Kroenke and general manager Masai Ujiri had initially preferred the Nets’ offer for Anthony, which was built around rookie forward Derrick Derrick Favors(notes) and four first-round draft picks, but Anthony was unwilling to commit to signing a contract extension with the Nets.
Nuggets coach George Karl had pushed team officials to make the deal with the Knicks over a straight trade with the Nets because it would better position the Nuggets to contend for the playoffs this season, a source with knowledge of Denver’s plans said.
The Denver Post first reported the trade’s completion.
