A league source with knowledge of the New York Knicks’ thinking said on Wednesday that there were “no legs” to an ESPN report that the Knicks have made “significant” progress on a trade that would bring Carmelo Anthony to New York from the Denver Nuggets.
To be honest, not surprised by this news. Don’t expect Melo news to pick up anytime soon actually, Tommy Dee implied on The Knicks Blog last night.
It’s entirely possible that the Nets are still in this actually. According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard, the Nuggets still love what the Nets have. This move would kill many hopeful Knicks fans in their quest for a title chip.
Hopefully, the Knicks will be able to focus entirely on the season at hand, but at the same time, be able to pick up Melo next free agency. We’ll see in due time.
