Carmelo Anthony Traded to New York Knicks

Former Denver Nugget star Carmelo Anthony Traded to the New York Knicks Minutes Ago - Breaking Story
by Kansas City News

After a day's worth of back and forth between Carmelo Anthony, The Denver Nuggets, The New York Knicks and "set up" team The New Jersey Nets, Anthony signed on the dotted line with the Knicks.

The deal involves the Nuggets aquiring Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey (gotta love that name) Mozgov, New York's 2014 first round draft pick, and in return the Knicks will get Melo, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman.  The Knicks will also give the Denver Nuggets $3 million dollars in cash.

Carmelo Anthony wanted out of Denver. They offered him a 3 year, 65 million dollar extension and he declined. Now that means that you want out! Speculators feel that the involvement of the New Jersey Nets in this trade was just Camelo's agent using leverage against the Knicks to get a better deal.

There's a story that at Carmelo's wedding during the toasts, several NBA players, including New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul, mentioned that Anthony should leave the Nuggets for the Knicks and Anthony did not dismiss the idea.

Then Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke stood up to give a toast and the room went silent, especially when he suggested that Chris Paul come to the Nuggets. The reason that the room went silent as soon as Kroenke stood up was probably because it was a room full of black people that didn't want to hear big-bucks whitey speak.
