They are trading Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov and a 2014 first-round draft pick to the Nuggets, who would get additional picks and cash. The Timberwolves will be getting Eddy Curry and Anthony Randolph from the Knicks forswingman Corey Brewer, a person with knowledge of the deal confirmed to the AP. The Wolves will also get about $3 million in the deal to buy out Curry's contract. Commenting on the trade today, Knicks star Amar'e Stoudemire said the team would be "hard to guard." He said he had "no doubt" the All-Star forwards and longtime friends could play together, and said Anthony would handle the move to New York as well as he has.
