About time. Nuggets got a pretty damn good haul for a player who wouldnt be with the team next year. Probably makes Cleveland even more angry that LeBron left and they got nothing.

The New York Knicks (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/clubhouse?team=nyk) have acquired Carmelo Anthony (http://espn.go.com/nba/player/_/id/1975/carmelo-anthony), sources told ESPN The Magazine's senior writer Chris Broussard on Monday night.
Completing the deal, Denver will get Wilson Chandler (http://espn.go.com/nba/player/_/id/3194/wilson-chandler), Raymond Felton (http://espn.go.com/nba/player/_/id/2753/raymond-felton), Danilo Gallinari (http://espn.go.com/nba/player/_/id/3428/danilo-gallinari), Timofey Mozgov (http://espn.go.com/nba/player/_/id/4298/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 (http://espn.go.com/nba/player/_/id/63/chauncey-billups), Shelden Williams (http://espn.go.com/nba/player/_/id/3040/shelden-williams), Anthony Carter (http://espn.go.com/nba/player/_/id/137/anthony-carter) and Renaldo Balkman (http://espn.go.com/nba/player/_/id/2986/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 (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/clubhouse?team=njn).
Information from The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Where do you guys think Felton's heading? Heard Denver doesn't really want him.
Shame, cause he was having a good season and getting some recognition in NYC.
Also, Knicks were starting to slip out of that 6th seed. Does this make them better or worse than they were at the start of the season? I'm not sure...
