Sources: Nuggets trade Anthony to Knicks

NEW YORK -- A person with knowledge of the deal says the Knicks and Denver Nuggets have agreed on a trade that will send Carmelo Anthony to New York.

The person provided no other details of who was in the deal, which was first reported Monday by the Denver Post. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment publicly on the trade.

The Post, citing a league source, said the Knicks would send Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov and a 2014 first-round draft pick to the Nuggets, who would get additional picks and cash.

Along with Anthony, New York would acquire Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman, according to the Post.

After long layoff, Rangers being cautious with Webb

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Brandon Webb has no concerns about the Texas Rangers keeping him off the mound for now.

Webb says the Rangers just want him to build up more arm strength. He threw on flat ground Monday and says he's still doing a lot of throwing.

The former NL Cy Young Award winner hasn't pitched in a major league game since the 2009 season opener because of shoulder surgery.

Webb threw a short bullpen session Thursday during the team's first workout, and says he hasn't had a setback.

The AL champion Rangers, who lost Cliff Lee in free agency, expect Webb to be part of their rotation.

Manager Ron Washington says the Rangers "just want to make sure he's able to help us."
