The New York Knicks are getting more than just NBA superstar Carmelo Anthony in this three-team, multi-player trade that went down today.
They’re getting Mr. Big Shot – NBA vet point guard Chauncey Billups – from the Denver Nuggets.
The Knicks gave up some good players, but everyone on their team other than Amare Stoudemire was fair game.
What the Knicks are besides one of the game’s best in Anthony is a guy who can hit big shots in Billups. In the playoffs, the game slows down to execution in the half court and that’s more up Billups’ alley. He’s not the complete pick-and-roll player for Stoudemire like Steve Nash was, but Billups can play off the pick-and-roll, catch a pass on the wing and nail the deep jump shot.
