This one seems to be coming down to the final stretch (finally) so here's the latest.

Knicks improve offer for Anthony - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

The Knicks offered a choice of forward Danilo Gallinari or rookie guard Landry Fields on Friday, and Denver officials preferred Gallinari, a source with knowledge of the talks said. The proposed deal would send Gallinari, point guard Raymond Felton, forward Wilson Chandler, Eddy Curry’s expiring contract and a first-round pick to the Nuggets for Anthony, point guard Chauncey Billups, Renaldo Balkman and Shelden Williams.

There's still a chance that the Nets could pull off the upset but I think their role here is primarily to drive up the price on the Knicks.  Sounds like this could (and should) get done by the end of the weekend, which would open up the rest of the trade market headed into the trade deadline.

Regardless, Denver fans are ready to move on.
