Oklahoma City Thunder trade Carmelo Anthony to the Atlanta Hawks

Oklahoma City Thunder trade Carmelo Anthony to the Atlanta Hawks

Anthony has been on the court recently with Rockets point guard Chris Paul during some workout sessions and Paul has reportedly been talking to Anthony about joining the Rockets.

The Thunder's projected luxury tax bill, meanwhile, will drop from $150 million to $88.8 million, saving them $62 million. He is not expected to crack Oklahoma City's rotation, and will likely be only an end-of-the-bench insurance at the shooting guard and small forward positions and cheerleader for the team.

Schroder has played five seasons in the National Basketball Association, all with the Hawks, and averaged a career high 19.4 points a game last season.

It was only a matter of time until Carmelo Anthony was traded or bought out by the Oklahoma City Thunder. Part of the reason the return wasn't greater is that the move involved getting rid of Schroder.

The stretch provision would have left $9 million-plus a year on the Thunder's books for the next three years, so Schroder's $15.5M per year deal is a bargain. That effort only intensified when Atlanta made Trae Young the center of its rebuilding effort by trading back to acquire him during last month's National Basketball Association draft. The Hawks also added Brooklyn's Jeremy Lin.

OKC Thunder Trade Carmelo Anthony To Atlanta Hawks

OKC is also sending the Hawks a protected 2022 first round pick.

Rumors had been swirling around starting point guard Dennis Schröder since the start of the offseason, when he deleted any and all reference to the Atlanta Hawks off of his social media accounts.

It's actually a three-team deal involving the Hawks and 76ers, per Yahoo!

"Oklahoma City was able to accomplish two things by trading Carmelo Anthony to Atlanta, improve the roster while saving $73M this season".

Anderson, a former standout at Virginia, was a bit player for the Sixers over the past 18 months, and he's unlikely to get a bigger role in Atlanta. He was selected by the Mavericks with the No. 21 pick of the 2015 NBA Draft.
