2011 NBA trade deadline
A trade-by-trade look at all the deals made the week of the NBA trade deadline.
NETS TRADE FOR STAR PG DERON WILLIAMS
After striking out on LeBron James, the Nets backup plan was Travis Outlaw. But when Melo spurned the Nets for NYC? Mikhail Prokhorov's regime was ready, making a quick deal to bring superstar point guard Deron Williams (right) to the Nets. While it took a lot of young assets, including Derrick Favors, Devin Harris and draft picks, if the Nets can lock up Williams past 2012, it will work out as a huge score as the team prepares for its move to Brooklyn.
KNICKS GET MELO IN BLOCKBUSTER
In a trade that many Knicks fans loved, and some Knicks fans hated, Donnie Walsh delivered MSG a second superstar in Carmelo Anthony (pictured). In exchange, homegrown products Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari, in addition to new additions Raymond Felton and Timofey Mozgov, were sent packing. The Knicks also brought in "Mr. Big Shot" Chauncey Billups, a veteran point guard with another year left on his deal after this season.
KNICKS DEAL RANDOLPH, CURRY FOR BREWER
The second part of what was essentially a three-part deal, the Knicks sent Eddy Curry's expiring contract along with youngster Anthony Randolph (left) to the Wolves. In return, Minnesota sent Corey Brewer, a defensive-minded small forward.
