MELO TO THE THUNDER
The writing was on the wall.
New York made it no secret they wanted Carmelo out of town, especially during the Phil Jackson regime. Earlier this week, news broke that Melo expanded his list of teams to three, bringing back the Cavaliers and adding the Thunder to his preferred destination of Houston. Once that happened, it was only a matter of time.
Minutes ago the trade was made official.
Carmelo Anthony is traded to Oklahoma City Thunder for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott, and a draft pick.
Carmelo might not have gotten what he wanted, but he did get what's best: The best possible chance to win a championship. And alongside Paul George and reigning MVP Russell Westbrook, it might just happen.
