Hawks get Anthony; will waive him

Carmelo Anthony Thunder

But Muscala will be traded from OKC to the Philadelphia 76ers, according to Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania, giving the Thunder Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot (5.8 ppg, 1.4 rpg in 2017-18) in return and sending Justin Anderson to Atlanta.

Muscala is likely to be moved to a third team.

Anthony is expected to still receive the full $27.9 million he's owed for next season in the buyout with the Hawks. That's particularly noteworthy because Carmelo Anthony, who's no longer on the team, had 3.1 such plays per game last season.

All signs indicate that choice will be to play with the Houston Rockets.

Anthony would not help the Rockets much at the defensive end.

That being said, Melo was coming off a dismal season past year, averaging career-lows in points (16.2), field goal percentage (40%) and minutes per game (32.1). But the Thunder save $107 ($145.4m) million through the trade, compared to about $90 million ($122.3m) if they waived him via the stretch provision, stretching his salary over the next three seasons.

Since the protests and clashes broke out along the border on March 30, at least 141 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire.

Carmelo Anthony's departure from the Oklahoma City Thunder has been assured for weeks. Schroder makes $15.5 million per year compared to Anthony's $28 million for 18-19.

Anthony, 34, played just one season for the Thunder after spending six-plus years in NY. Fifth overall pick Trae Young - whom the Hawks acquired, along with a future first-round pick, in a draft-day trade with Dallas - also is expected to see extensive minutes running the offense. The charges against Schroder were recommended to be upgraded from misdemeanor to felony.

In one fell swoop, each of these three teams got a little bit of what it wanted.

"A Heat agreement with Anthony could assure a Heat return by Wade, a close friend who now is a free agent", he wrote. He averaged 16.2 points on 40.4-percent shooting. The rebuilding Hawks will give him a look on the wings along with Taurean Prince, DeAndre' Bembry and first-round pick Kevin Huerter.

SiriusXM radio host and longtime National Basketball Association reporter Mitch Lawrence was first to report the potential deal between the Thunder and Hawks.
