A blockbuster trade was reportedly sealed according to several sports sites on Monday.
The rumors surrounding the expiring contract of Carmelo Anthony on Denver Nuggets has stirred lots of speculations as to where he is headed to next. Other writers were saying that he could get an extension in Denver or he may be going to New Jersey Nets. But a trade to New York Knicks (which boasts of lots of cash to spend for a super star player to be added on their roster) is the one that was seen to happen.
And it did. Carmelo Anthony and Billups are traded to New York Knicks in a blockbuster deal together with some other players.
But the big time trade deal is not limited to Denver and New York but reports said it is a three-way trade deal. Timberwolves is said to be the other NBA included in the negotiations.
Eddy Curry and Anthony Randolph will be sent to the Minnesota Timberwolves. On the other hand, Corey Brewer is reported to be headed to New York Knicks to join Anthony; though earlier Brewer was rumored to be going to the Denver Nuggets squad.
With the trade deal, New York Knicks becomes a stronger team as the NBA is heading to the playoffs just after the most recent 2011 All Star Weekend in New York.
But the important question is: will Corey Brewer get enough playing time with Knicks?
