The Denver Post is reporting the New York Knicks have acquired Carmelo Anthony from the Denver Nuggets. It looks like the Knicks will get Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Anthony Johnson, Shelden Williams and Renaldo Balkman. The Nuggets will get Danilo Gallinari, Raymond Felton, Timofey Mozgov, Wilson Chandler, the Knicks first-round pick in 2014, and two second round picks (originally owned by the Warriors) in 2012 and 2013. (Eddy Curry wasn't mentioned in the article, but his contract has to be involved in the deal).
So here's the question, as it relates to the Sixers' loyal: With Melo and Billups now in the fold, and Gallinari/Chandler/Mozgov gone, will the Sixers catch the Knicks for the #6 seed?
On a related note, is Nene available, and do the Sixers make the phone call to see if they can pry him away from the rebuilding Nuggets, who probably aren't even close to done dealing?
