The Carmelo Anthony mega-trade has a number of moving pieces and a third suitor, according to a report on Monday evening. The Minnesota Timberwolves are the third team in the deal, jumping into the fold to take Eddy Curry and Anthony Randolph. Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman are headed to New York with Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, and Raymond Felton heading to Denver.
Yahoo! Sports reported the rest of the deal, which includes draft picks and cash heading from New York to Denver and the Timberwolves taking two players, as well.
Y! Sports: NY: Melo, CB, Balkman, Williams, Carter; DEN: Gallo, Mosgov, Felton, Chandler, '14 NY 1st & 2 2nds; Minn: Randolph and Curry.
In total, 11 players are on the move between three teams, with three draft picks and, perhaps, a few million dollars also changing hands. With as many moving pieces involved, it's easy to see why negotiations dragged on for months as the Carmelo Anthony saga wore on the parties involved.
