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

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

With star players like Paul George and Russell Westbrook, a trade for Carmelo Anthony is not impossible for the Thunder.

Bill Simmons says that the Thunder and Anthony are "circling each other", making it seem like maybe the Knicks' star is considering it.

Simmons claims that the relationship between Thunder assistant general manager Troy Weaver and Anthony could help get a deal done.

This would certainly be a huge deal for the Thunder, as it could potentially put them in contention in the brutally tough Western Conference. Previously, Anthony had listed the Houston Rockets and Cleveland Cavaliers as his preferred teams. Just this offseason, Anthony has been linked to the Rockets, Trail Blazers and Cavs in light of Kyrie Irving's trade request. Anthony and Oklahoma City can "circle" each other all they want, but the Thunder have to take an extra hard step in this deal: Selling Anthony on their team (and playing in Oklahoma City) before they can even work on selling NY on a potential trade package. Nor am I sitting on any insider information from "official sources" close to the team but it still needs to be said - the Thunder won't trade Steven Adams for Carmelo Anthony. The Thunder don't have much to offer in exchange for Anthony.

Navy in 2022. "One primary difference is the crew composition", said the ship's executive officer, Capt. Ford is billed as the world's most technologically advanced nuclear powered aircraft carrier.

In order for a trade to work, the Knicks would probably have to take back Enes Kanter.

It is unclear who Oklahoma City would trade to acquire Anthony. But the Knicks have made it clear that they aren't going to accept a deal in which they simply give Anthony away. "There's no way he's going to leave that little boy in NY and be 3,000 miles away from him".

After rumors of being on the 2-yard line in regards to sending Melo to Houston, the Knicks pulled out of trade talks in hopes of convincing Melo to stay.
