Do the Knicks have the juice to land Carmelo?

Amar'e Stoudemire, Knicks Coach Mike D'Antoni, Executive Chairman of Madison Square Garden James Dolan and Knicks President Donnie Walsh (R) appear before the media after Stoudemire signed a 5 year and nearly 100 million dollar contract to play with the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden in New York City on July 8, 2010.

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News writes that the Knicks may not have the assets to coax the Nuggets into a trade:

“What do they have?” a Nuggets source said. “That makes it tough.”

There are reports that the Knicks’ offer would include Eddy Curry’s expiring contract, a future first-round pick and Danilo Gallinari, although Donnie Walsh and Mike D’Antoni will try to replace Gallinari with Wilson Chandler in a proposed trade for Anthony.

No, I don’t think Gallinari and Curry are enough. And I certainly don’t think that Chandler and Curry are enough. But what upping the ante with Anthony Randolph, who has displayed some considerable potential in two up-and-down years playing for the schizophrenic Don Nelson?

If I’m running the Nuggets and the Rockets offer Kevin Martin and the Knicks’ two first round picks (acquired in the T-Mac trade), then I’m leaning Houston, even if they’re in the same conference. Of course, Rockets GM Daryl Morey won’t make that kind of an offer unless Anthony agrees to sign an extension as a part of the trade.
