The final shoe has dropped in this NBA offseason. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Knicks have sent Carmelo Anthony to OKC for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott, and a draft pick(2018 2nd round pick).
In order for this deal to happen, Anthony had to waive his no-trade clause. With Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Anthony, the Thunder have turned themselves into title contenders.
According to Wojnarowski, Westbrook and George convinced Melo to waive his no-trade.
Westbrook, George, and Anthony can opt out of their contracts in summer of 2018. Maybe they can win in Oklahoma City and stay for a long time.
This is shaping up to be a great NBA season!
The Thunder will play New York in the season opener.
