Trade Tracker: Kings swap Landry to NOLA

An updating list of trades at the NBA Trade Deadline. Posted by EOB staff. 

Carl Landry traded to Hornets for Marcus Thornton


New Orleans receives: Carl Landry


Sacramento receives: Marcus Thornton, and cash

Analysis: We touched on this last night when the story broke, but essentially, it's a questionable move for the Hornets, who are hoping for a special combination with him and the Hornets guards. At least it means less time for Jason Smith. For the Kings, they get some cap relief and a good young wing player who can drop 30 at any given moment. Now, how this fits in with a crowded backcourt rotation is anyone's guess, but it's great return on investment.

NBA EOB Trade Deadline Tracker: Kosta Koufos

An updating list of trades at the NBA Trade Deadline. Posted by EOB staff.

Kosta Koufos TRADED TO DENVER FOR DRAFT PICK

Denver receives: Kosta Koufos (2.7 ppg, 2.5 rpg, .5 bpg)

Minnesota receives: 2015 second round draft pick (unprotected)

(via Star-Tribune)

Analysis: A late addition to the much larger Carmelo Anthony three-way trade announced yesterday. Another classic David Kahn move: Send out a bit player in trade after recently acquiring that same bit player in trade. Denver gets an extra big who doesn't figure to play much. Minnesota doesn't really need Koufos because he's A) not good and B) They have plenty of other marginal power forwards and centers, including Darko Milicic, Nikola Pekovic, Anthony Tolliver and the recently acquired Anthony Randolph. The Timberwolves also don't have to pay the balance of his salary but that's a marginal consideration, as he's only making $1.3 million this year. They do also avoid having to pay him $2.2 million next season, however, so maybe that fact alone makes this worth doing.

NBA EOB Trade Deadline Tracker: Deron Williams

An updating list of trades at the NBA Trade Deadline. Posted by EOB staff.

Deron Williams TRADED TO NEW JERSEY FOR Derrick Favors, Devin Harris, TWO FIRST ROUND PICKS, CASH

Utah receives: Derrick Favors (6.3 ppg, 5.3 rpg), Devin Harris (15.0 ppg, 7.6 apg, 2.4 rpg), Two First Round Picks (New Jersey's first round pick in 2011, Golden State's first round pick in 2012), Cash 

New Jersey receives: Deron Williams (21.3 ppg, 9.7 apg, 3.9 rpg)

(via CBSSports.com)

Analysis: The Nets land a superstar after all. A few days after missing out on Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony, the Nets acquire an All-Star, franchise point guard in Deron Williams, who is arguably a top three or five point guard in the game. Williams, who had clashed with longtime Jazz coach Jerry Sloan this season before Sloan's resignation, was said to be unhappy with the direction the organization was taking and may not have agreed to sign a contract extension to stay in small-market Salt Lake City. The Jazz get a promising big man in Derrick Favors, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, a solid starting-calibre point guard in Devin Harris, two high-quality picks which will likely be lottery picks, and $3 million cash. The Jazz also saive nearly $2 million in salary this season. Utah is in the luxury tax so this will amount to a total savings of $4 million, barring any further trades that takes the team below the tax line.

James Johnson TRADED TO TORONTO FOR DRAFT PICK

Toronto receives: James Johnson (3.2 ppg, 1.8 rpg, 1.1 asg)

Chicago Receives: 2011 1st round draft picks (Miami's, received in Chris Bosh sign-and-trade)

Carmelo Anthony trade to New York Knicks is done

Multiple outlets are reporting that Denver Nuggets All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony has been traded to the New York Knicks. Posted by Ben Golliver.trade-deadline

Multiple outlets are reporting on Monday night that our long national nightmare is over: Denver Nuggets All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony has been traded to the New York Knicks.

The Denver Post calls the trade "official" and says Nuggets point guard Chauncey Billups is also headed out of town. 
TRADE official, source told Denver Post. Melo to Knicks ... Melo officially a Knick. And Chauncey leaves the Nuggets for the second time.
Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the deal is complete.
Two people involved in the discussions confirm Denver Post report (via @nuggets news) that Knicks and Nuggets have agreed to Melo trade.
Here's Berger's full report.
The Knicks and Nuggets agreed Monday night on a trade sending Carnelo Anthony to New York, three league sources told CBSSports.com. "It's done," one of the sources said.
The deal, which is expected to pass through the league approval process Tuesday, is Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari, Raymond Felton, Timofey Mozgov and New York's 2014 first-round pick going to Denver for Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams and Anthony Carter, sources said. The Timberwolves previously agreed to take Eddy Curry's expiring contract along with Anthony Randolph from the Knicks and send Corey Brewer to New York. The Wolves also get $3 million from the Knicks, which will be used to buy Curry out of the few remaining pay checks on his $11.3 million contract. 
Yahoo! News reports...
Carmelo Anthony is now a member of the Knicks, source tells Y! Sports.
The New York Daily News calls the trade done... 
Source confirms Knicks get Carmelo. Deal done
The official trade confirmation news comes shortly after a very full day of Anthony to the Knicks chatter.

Note: This post will update as more information becomes available.
