Gaze thee upon this tandem of hope, because you’re going to see them a lot in Madison Square Garden this season. Carmelo Anthony is now a member of the New York Knickerbockers alongside fellow All-Star Amar’e Stoudemire. Details of the deal are still being worked out but here’s the breakdown:

Denver gets:
Wilson Chandler
Raymond Felton
Danilo Gallinari
Timofey Mozgov
2014 first-round draft pick

New York gets:
Carmelo Anthony
Chauncey Billups
Shelden Williams
Anthony Carter
Renaldo Balkman

The Knicks will also send Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry to Minnesota in exchange for Corey Brewer. Melo is expected to sign a $65 million 3-year extension deal when it’s all said and done.

And this…

“The Nuggets have explored an Anthony trade since he refused to sign the three-year contract extension worth nearly $65 million they offered him last summer. They appeared on the verge of sending him to the New Jersey Nets on multiple occasions, but the Knicks increased their offer enough to land Anthony, who was believed to prefer New York all along.”

Poor Jay-Z. He gets no love from superstars.
