The New York Knicks and the Oklahoma City Thunder have reportedly reached a deal that will send Carmelo Anthony to the Thunder. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Knicks will receive Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott in return for the star SF.
The news doesn’t come as a shock as trade rumors have been surrounding the Knicks organization and Melo all off-season after reports broke that Melo wasn’t happy. Some may be surprised by Melo’s decision to waive his no trade clause to go to the Thunder, but the addition of all-star SF makes the Thunder immediate contenders joining forces with Russell Westbrook and Paul George.
The reported deal will allegedly be signed Monday finally ending the Melo saga. The reports coming out all summer had linked Melo to trades with Houston and Cleveland, but Melo will finally have a new home in a race against time to get a ring.
