The news of Melo being traded to Knicks hasn’t even been out 24 hours and he already has a sandwich named after him at famous Carnegie Deli. That’s how you know you’ve made it to New York when you have a sandwich named after you…and let me tell you this sandwich is as HUGE as the deal that the Knicks had to make to get Melo!!

Sandy Levine, owner of the Carnegie Deli, tells TMZ they are already launching the new Melo Sandwich and it is packed with everything you could ever want on a sandwich:

— Pastrami
— Corned Beef
— Salami
— Bacon
— Tomato
— Russian dressing
— On rye bread

The sandwich will run you a cool $21.95 and that price was chosen for a reason — if they sell around 3,000,000 of them … it equals the $65 million contract Melo is likely to sign with the Knicks.

Antacid will cost extra.
