Three-team deal sending Carmelo to New York 'not close', sources say

A reported three-team deal that would send Carmelo Anthony to New York is "not close" to being completed, multiple league sources connected to the talks told SI.com

On Saturday, ESPN.com reported the Knicks, Nuggets and Timberwolves were discussing a three-team deal that would send Anthony to New York; Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry to Minnesota; and Wilson Chandler, Corey Brewer and a first-round draft pick to Denver. Sources said that, while Minnesota is interested in acquiring Randolph, it has little interest in sending Brewer to the Nuggets.

Moreover, a league executive in talks with Denver said it is likely the Nuggets would want more in a deal for Anthony.

"The package New Jersey offered was so much stronger than this," the executive said. "To me this feels like Denver trying to lure other teams to the table."

On Sunday, Knicks president Donnie Walsh told reporters he was "getting a feeling for possibilities" on the trade market.

"We have a better feeling for what's going to happen," Walsh said.

"I don't feel good or bad," he added. "These things take two to tango. But we're out there looking and seeing if we can do something. Some of it is not real big, trying to fill in the blanks within our own team."
