Wow! So we all thought that he will still land in Houston but apparently, he had agreed to be traded with the OKC Thunders!
Thunder will send center Enes Kanter, forward Doug McDermott and a 2018 second-round draft pick from the Chicago Bulls to the Knicks, league sources told The Vertical.
Although the trade is still not official, a lot of reliable media organizations have already reported it. Enes Kanter and Mc Dermoth are both in their mid 20’s while Carmelo is at 33 years old.
Melo has been pushing hard for a trade but the Houston scenario wasn’t really working out. It was reported earlier that he would be willing to be traded to Blazers, Cavs and OKC.
It looks like OKC won the bid and they will now banner three offensive superstars in Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony this season. Seems unfair.
Anthony expected to waive his no-trade clause on Monday and make things official.
