Knicks can get second first-round pick
One of the reasons the New Jersey Nets have been thought to have a better chance of getting Carmelo Anthony(notes) from the Denver Nuggets is because the team has two first-round picks that it can send to the Mile High City. But the New York Knicks have been thought to be Anthony's preferred destination.
Now Knicks president Donnie Walsh claims he can get his hands on two first-round picks for trading if he needs to, according to ESPN.
"I could probably get more than one, but I'm not going to say how many," Walsh said yesterday, according to the site. "But I'm confident I can get a first-round pick."
ESPN notes that this info "is certain to move the needle in the unending Carmelo Anthony trade watch."
