I’m 90% sure Carmelo ends up a Knick either via trade or free agency. Now it’s just a matter of how and that’s completely up to the Nuggets.
According to the Daily News, Knicks owner James Dolan “is taking a more active role” in New York’s pursuit of Carmelo Anthony and “has had direct negotiations” with the Denver Nuggets.
According to the Post, The Knicks, Nuggets and Timberwolves are advancing on a three-team trade that could land Carmelo Anthony in New York.
Amare Stoudemire ended a mini-slump with 30 points, and the New York Knicks snapped a six-game losing streak and dropped the Washington Wizards to 0-21 on the road.
Phoenix overcame a season-high 41 points from former Suns All-Star Amare Stoudemire and handed the Knicks their third loss in a row.
Danilo Gallinari is back in the starting lineup Monday for the Knicks, who are without injured big man Ronny Turiaf.
For one night, it was the New York Knicks’ defense that stood out. Amar’e Stoudemir’e had 23 points and eight rebounds, Raymond Felton added 17 points and 14 assists, and New York beat the Portland Trail Blazers 100-86 on Tuesday.
At the risk of redundancy…the New York Knicks are a good basketball team. Just ask the San Antonio Spurs.
Wilson Chandler scored a season-high 31 points, and the New York Knicks overwhelmed the San Antonio Spurs with a sensational offensive performance, cooling off the NBA leaders, 128-115 on Tuesday night.
Perhaps the one glaring weakness of this Knicks roster has been a lack of depth. That deficiency has been hidden fairly well with the starters playing well and Mike D’Antoni holding the rotation to eight for most of the season.
Amare Stoudemire scored 26 points, including six of New York’s last seven points, and the Knicks beat the Indiana Pacers 98-92 Sunday.

Amare Stoudemire scored 23 points, Wilson Chandler added 21, and the New York Knicks beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 112-98 on Wednesday night to snap a three-game losing streak.
As for someone who covered the Knicks for three years during the Pat Riley era, this is a wonderful time.
The Knicks are relevant again.
