An explanation why hanging onto Andre Iguodala was a good move for the Sixers.
The trade deadline came and went without any significant news. Read for a deal that almost happened, and analysis.
Source confirms Knicks get Carmelo. Deal done— Frank Isola (@FisolaNYDN) February 22, 2011
Sounds like the significant players involved are Felton, Gallo, and Chandler (to Denver), and Melo and Billups (to New York). Since the Knicks are the Sixers main competition for the sixth seed, does this make it more or less likely that the Sixers catch the Knicks (2 games back), in your opinion? I think it makes the Knicks a better team, especially because I think Billups has some left in his tank, and Melo will undoubtably be rejuvenated. Should make the Atlantic Division fun. P.S. THANK GOD IT'S OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Portland Trailblazers are reportedly interested in making a trade for Sixers forward/center Marreese Speights, having made an initial offer of Dante Cunningham and a second round pick, which the Sixers turned down
