In the slightly tweaked words of Mary J. Blige, no more ‘Melodrama. It should come as a surprise to no one but the blindest Nets fan that Carmelo Anthony has finally landed in Manhattan to play for the New York Knicks. While the deal is awaiting league approval, and though some of these names will probably move again before Thursday’s trade deadline, here’s a quick look at the fantasy impact of this mega deal. To read my full thoughts on the fallout, head on over to DimeMag.com.

New York Knicks get: Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter, Renaldo Balkman and Corey Brewer

Beast of the Night: Arron Afflalo had himself a night to the tune of 31 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two threes.  He shot 79 percent (11-14) from the field, 100 percent (7-7) from the free-throw line and had no turnovers. This is something of a preview of what will happen to Afflalo’s fantasy value if Carmelo Anthony is dealt away.

Lines for Discussion:
Beno Udrih: 10-13 FG (77%), 5-5 FT (100%), 1 three, 26 Pts, 4 Reb, 6 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO

Beast of the Night: Danny Granger put up 22 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks and hit 4 threes in an easy victory over the Clippers. He shot 43 percent (6-14) from the field, 86 percent (6-7) from the field and had no turnovers. Granger’s returning top-10 value so far this season, but DNPs loom.
