MY PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED! CARMELO ANTHONY HAS BEEN TRADED TO THE ATL HAWKS! THIS IS A GREAT DAY FOR ME AND OKC. IT IS BELIEVED THAT HE WILL BE WAIVED AND BE ABLE TO JOIN ANY TEAM OF HIS CHOICE. I WROTE ABOUT WHO WOULD WANT HIM HERE.
To recap the trade:
OKC: Dennis Schröeder, Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot
ATL: Carmelo Anthony (will be bought out), Justin Anderson, 2022 1st round pick (lottery protected)
PHL: Mike Muscala
This is a HUGE win for OKC. Saving millions in luxury tax and also getting Schröeder and TLC. Schröeder has potential to be a great six man if he is willing to accept that role on OKC. He allows OKC to keep the fast pace when Westbrook goes to the bench and can also provide some much needed scoring off the bench, which is where OKC has lacked in recent years.
Atlanta must have really wanted to get rid of Schröeder with them only getting a 2022 protected first round pick, Justin Anderson, and having to buy Melo out of his contract. Oh well, Atlanta sucks anyways.
Carmelo Anthony is the overall winner in this trade. He gets to collect his huge bag and then play for any team he may like. I imagine he is sipping on some vino laughing his way to the damn bank.
