Carmelo Anthony Leaving OKC Thunder: Will He Join LeBron James In LA?

07 July, 2018, 09:00 | Author: Candice Daniels

However, would the Thunder be able to use the stretch provision on Anthony's contract the club would shave off $107 million off this coming season's team payroll and tax bill.

That follows a report from Adrian Wojnarowski and Royce Young of ESPN.com that stated the Oklahoma City Thunder will cut ties with Anthony this summer through a trade, waiving him with the stretch provision or agreeing to a buyout combined with the stretch provision.

Oklahoma City, which now has a payroll of more than $310 million when you include the luxury tax bill, is working through scenarios to eliminate Anthony's $27.9 million contract and a staggering $107 tax bill. Multiple teams, including Houston, have interest in signing Anthony, according to the report.

Reuters reports that whether the bank will invest in Iran is in doubt. "Enough with the policy of appeasement and weakness regarding Iran".

Should Anthony wind up as a free agent, the Heat likely would be limited to no more than a bid of the $5.3 million taxpayer mid-level exception, a figure that the Heat also may have to instead utilize for a potential return by Dwyane Wade. They could not, however, get close enough on a deal with the Rockets lacking enough assets and salary to make the one work without including the bloated contract of power forward Ryan Anderson, who the Knicks weren't interested in and who potential third teams shooed off. The OK3 experiment looks to be officially finished in Oklahoma City. He averaged career lows of 16.2 points on 40.4% shooting last season.

"I don't think I can be effective as that type of player", he said. He struggled during the Thunder's first-round playoff exit against the Jazz and expressed displeasure in his role. "I think I was willing to accept that challenge in that role, but I think I bring a little bit more to the game as far as being more knowledgeable and what I still can do as a basketball player".
