OKC trades Melo to Hawks for Dennis Schroder

OKC Thunder Trade Carmelo Anthony To Atlanta Hawks

The Oklahoma City Thunder finally parted ways with Carmelo Anthony, but it sounds like veteran forward will receive a similar fate with his new team.

Per Wojnarowski and Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania's reporting, a three-way trade will see the Thunder send Anthony and a protected (1-14) 2022 first-round pick (will become two-seconrd pick if not conveyed in one year) to the Atlanta Hawks for point guard Dennis Schroder and Mike Muscala. The Philadelphia 76ers also got involved, providing Justin Anderson to the Hawks and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot to the Thunder for Mike Muscala. Secondly, Anthony himself is best buds with recently re-signed Rockets star Chris Paul.

Anthony is also close with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. If the Thunder used the stretch provision on Anthony, they would have $9 million remaining over the next three years. He averaged 16.2 points on 40.4-percent shooting. The Hawks requested waivers on guard Jaylen Morris, who appeared in six games with the team last season. Schroder averaged 19.4 points and 6.2 assists per game last season.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski added the Thunder will send a 2022 protected first round draft pick to the Hawks.




As a bonus, the Thunder will add the 6-6 Luwawu-Cabarrot, 23, an athletic wing who's in the Thunder's developmental mold.

Golden State won a third NBA title in four seasons last month, sweeping the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. In 121 National Basketball Association games, Luwawu-Cabarrot has averaged 6.1 points in 16.5 minutes per game.

Last season, Schroeder averaged 1.09 points per possession on isolation-based plays.

Anthony isn't a great three-point shooter by any means, but he's still a load in the post and is still able to get to the foul line - his last season in NY, when he was more of a primary option, he still averaged nearly five free throws a game. He was selected by the Mavericks with the No. 21 pick of the 2015 NBA Draft.
