Trade rumor season has gotten off to an early start this year.
Carmelo Anthony scored 26 points and the New York Knicks moved to the brink of their first playoff series victory in 13 years, routing the Boston Celtics 90-76 on Friday night in Game 3 of the first-round series.
CBS Sports’ Ken Berger joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s The Adam Jones Show to talk about the chances of the Celtics coming back from an 0-2 deficit against the New York Knicks.
With more than 50 wins for the New York Knicks and more than 27 points per game for himself, the numbers back Melo up. The Knicks won a division title, and Anthony will add the scoring title after the regular season ends Wednesday.
The Knicks have agreed to a trade with the Denver Nuggets for Carmelo Anthony, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Monday night.
