Thunder Trade Carmelo Anthony To Hawks In Multi-Player Deal

James Harden on Carmelo Anthony'It'd be a great acquisition for

The news broke on Thursday that a three-team deal involving the Thunder, the Hawks and the 76ers will send Anthony from OKC to Atlanta where the Hawks plan to waive him and pay him the $27.9 million on the a year ago of his contract, according to USA TODAY Sports. The Thunder chose instead to take on Schroder's $15.5 million for next year.

The move more than confirms Adams' role as the third best player on the team, and should see his usage increase in the coming season with Anthony off the floor. In Game 6 of the first-round playoff series against Utah that ended Oklahoma City's season, he played fewer minutes than backup Jerami Grant. So, in essence, Oklahoma City is paying $5 million in each of the next three seasons for a 24-year-old point guard who has started 161 games in five National Basketball Association seasons.

Schroder joins the Thunder after five seasons in Atlanta.

Newspaper headlines: PM warns ‘there may be no Brexit’
The Labour leader looks certain to confront her over the turmoil in Tory ranks over her Brexit plans. She said: "I voted to Remain originally but I don't think we should now back down".

Schroder comes to the Thunder for a desired need: another fast, playmaking point guard for a revved-up bench behind All-Star guard Russell Westbrook. But by trading for Lin, the Hawks gave themselves a veteran point guard who can be a mentor to Young this season - and one who, if he can stay healthy after two injury-riddled seasons in Brooklyn, they could flip before February's trade deadline. In 78 games, Anthony averaged 16.2 points and 5.8 rebounds per game while shooting 40 percent from the floor. The Thunder aren't winning a title this year anyway with the Golden State Warriors and Rockets lording over the West, but they remain a viable threat to reach the conference semifinals.

After Anthony picked up his $27.9 million player option for next season, the two sides eventually agreed to part ways at some point this summer.

After it was once thought that the Thunder would just buyout Anthony and gain no assets in return, the news that the team acquired Schroder and Luwawu-Cabarrot figures to be a tremendous haul for the organization. The 23-year-old finished last season averaging 5.8 points over 52 games with seven starts. Atlanta will receive Anthony, Justin Anderson and the protected first-rounder.
