Carmelo Anthony Trade Rumors: Oklahoma City Thunder A Potential Landing Spot?

Dallas Mavericks v New York Knicks

Thunder assistant GM Troy Weaver was an assistant coach at Syracuse when he recruited Melo back in the day, but it's hard to imagine OKC putting together a package that would entice the Knicks.

A trade for Anthony would mark the second blockbuster deal of the offseason for the Thunder, after the team traded Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis to the Indiana Pacers for Paul George.

Anthony would have to waive a no-trade clause in order for the Knicks to move him. But it is understandable why Anthony would be interested in joining the Thunder. However, there are several impediments to such a deal happening, especially without the help of a third and possibly fourth team to make the salary cap alchemy work.

Anthony has one more guaranteed year left on his contract worth $26.2 million, not including an early termination option for 2018-19 ($27.9 million).

Trade rumors have been swirling around Anthony for months.

Carmelo Anthony to the Cavs has picked up a lot of steam since ESPN reported that Kyrie Irving wants out of Cleveland.

The New York Knicks have been given a list of preferred destinations by All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony. However, everyone would still be looking up at the Golden State Warriors.

The Oklahoma City Thunder know they have one of the best players in the National Basketball Association in Russell Westbrook, but now they're doing their best to surround him with as much talent as possible. Anthony, Westbrook and George can all become free agents next summer.
