It looks like the Knicks are finally stepping up to the plate. Ken Berger tweeted Friday afternoon, "A person with knowledge of trade talks tells that Melo will get his wish: a legit trade proposal to ponder by the end of All-Star Weekend."

Well, it looks like that offer may actually be on the table.

Yahoo! Sports is reporting that New York has indeed made an offer to the Nuggets for Carmelo Anthony that would send Danilo Gallinari, Raymond Felton, Wilson Chandler, Eddy Curry's contract and a to-be-acquired first-rounder to Denver. Also headed to the Knicks would be Chauncey Billups and "fillers."

Newsday's Alan Hahn tweeted that a source confirms the proposed trade.

The "to be acquired first-rounder" would almost assuredly be Minnesota's for Anthony Randolph, as that has been discussed for a while. As for why Gallinari, reportedly the Nuggets had an option to pick between him and rookie Landry Fields and preferred Gallinari.

With an actual deal on the table from the team that Melo will approve, this thing could actually be headed for a conclusion. Berger tweeted, "Source on Melo's desire to reach a resolution by weekend's end: 'He'll get something.'"

Report: Knicks have offer on the table for Melo

hahaha as a sixers fan i hope this deal happens. Right now the sixers are better and are playing better. so if the knicks make this trade the sixers will be alot better becuase this will totally ruin the team. anthony isnt a guy who can play with someone like stoudemire. You need a guy that can get the ball to amare. like raymond felton who has been fantastic with him. Also i would never give gallinari away in this deal because i think gallinari is going to become an amazing player. Honestly if lebron would have went to the knicks i think they would have won the chaampionship this year because lebron can pass the ball great and set up people great along with being able to score even better then anthony. that would be an unstoppable duo. so again i say i hope the kicks make this deal becaause the sixers will be the future of the east if they do. celtics are old and anthony will make this team go downhill.

Also this is just my opinion i know ill have a bunch of NY fans talking crap. right now i think the knicks are a veryy good team and if they waited for the right free agent they could be the next boston or la. but carmello is not the right guy espcially to play along amare. the knicks already cant defend, so to add someone who is a slacker on defense will be terrible. wait for chris paul or someone else to become available. to give up chandler and gallinari would be foolish...

I hope this is just another in a long line of idiotic articles by rumor mill hacks. If the Knicks give away all of those players and a number 1 they are no different then they have been for years and years. The knicks must stop giving away every young talented player they get.
