The Oklahoma City Thunder, Atlanta Hawks, and Philadelphia 76ers have agreed on a trade which sends Carmelo Anthony, Justin Anderson, and a protected 2022 first-round pick to the Hawks, while OKC lands guard Dennis Schroder and Luwawu-Cabarrot in the deal. Philadelphia also acquires Mike Muscala in the three-team trade. The Hawks have also agreed to buyout Carmelo’s contract worth $27.9 million dollars. This deal helps the Oklahoma City Thunder tremendously in salary and luxury tax savings, with the total being somewhere near $73 million. The Thunder also avoid having to stretch Carmelo’s contract thanks to this trade. Carmelo will meet with more teams once he is bought-out and reports are surfacing saying that the Houston Rockets remain the frontrunners.
