The Carmelo Anthony trade saga has rekindled with another three-team deal in the works, according to a report on Saturday. This time around, it’s the New York Knicks at the center of the talks, with the Minnesota Timberwolves emerging as a third-team in the potential deal. The Knicks were thought to be a landing spot for Carmelo should a deal get worked out ahead of the Feb. 24 trade deadline after the mega-deal involving the New Jersey Nets fell through in January.
ESPN’s Chris Broussard laid out the framework of the potential deal, citing sources close to the situation.
In the proposed trade, New York would send Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry to Minnesota and the Timberwolves would send Corey Brewer and a first-round pick to Denver. Denver would also receive Wilson Chandler from New York.
Though a deal is, apparently, being discussed, nothing is imminent and talks could drag on right up to the trade deadline. Anthony would have to sign an extension with the Knicks, but all indications point to him wanting to play in New York.
