Carmelo Anthony traded to New York Knicks
Completing the deal, Denver will get Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari,Timofey Mozgov, the Knicks’ 2014 first-round draft pick, the Warriors’ 2012 second-round pick, the Warriors’ 2013 second-round pick and $3 million in cash while Chauncey Billups,Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman will head to New York, according to the Denver Post.
Anthony wasn’t at the Nuggets’ practice on Monday night. Instead, the All-Star forward was in Burbank, Calif., taping a segment on “Conan.”
Anthony, who has been the subject of intense speculation as Thursday’s trade deadline approaches, stayed behind in Los Angeles following the NBA All-Star Game while his teammates gathered at the Pepsi Center.
Team spokesman Tim Gelt told The Associated Press that Anthony’s absence was excused. Late Monday afternoon, Anthony tweeted: “Headed to Burbank to film THE CONAN SHOW.”
Anthony has been the subject of trade talks ever since he declined to sign a three-year, $65 million extension with the Nuggets last summer. His biggest pursuers were the Knicks and New Jersey Nets.
