OKC Thunder Trade Carmelo Anthony To Atlanta Hawks

Reports Carmelo Anthony dealt to Hawks in three-team trade OKC Thunder Trade Carmelo Anthony To Atlanta Hawks
Noah Ferguson | 20 July, 2018, 02:51

Prior to executing the trade on Thursday, the Thunder were granted permission to meet with Schroder to discuss his future role with the team, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The lanky guard averaged 5.8 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 15.5 minutes for the 76ers last season. The Thunder's payroll will stand at $148.7 million after the Anthony and Muscala deals.

When Anthony hits free agency after his buyout and waiver are complete, the Rockets are considered the front runner to land him. Additionally, the Thunder will now add Schroder, who is another ball handler who could become an instant Sixth Man of the Year candidate with OKC behind Russell Westbrook.

Anderson is joining his third team in four seasons.

Oklahoma City pulled the trigger on this deal in order to clear out Anthony's massive salary and lower its luxury tax payment by almost $100 million for next season.

The 34-year-old forward averaged 16.2 points in 78 games for the Thunder last season.

Schroder joins the Thunder after five seasons in Atlanta.

Muscala, a 6-foot-11 stretch big, averaged 7.6 points and 4.3 rebounds while shooting 37.1 percent from 3-point range last season, knocking down at least two 3-pointers on 18 different occasions.

The 34-year-old Anthony had been the headliner his entire career - he's 19th in National Basketball Association history with 25,417 points - but he was more of a catch-and-shoot scorer last season instead of the isolation specialist he had always been.

Moving Schroder from the team has been a top priority after the team drafted Trae Young with the #5 overall draft pick.
