A Blockbuster Deal Brings ‘Melo Home to New York

Carmelo Anthony played his contract hand to perfection, pressuring the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks to engineer a major multi-team personnel reshuffle  that brought ‘Melo, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman to New York and sent Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danillo Gallinari and Timofey Mozgov to Denver, along with a first-round draft pick for 2014, $3 million in cash, and two future draft picks from the Golden State Warriors. Only time will tell who came out better in the deal.
