Carmelo Anthony, Thunder Have Mutual Interest

The Oklahoma City Thunder may be involved in talks to acquire Carmelo Anthony from the New York Knicks, according to a report from The Ringer's Bill Simmons.

Anthony has a longstanding relationship with Thunder vice president and assistant general manager Troy Weaver. The Houston Rockets would like to trade for Carmelo Anthony. NY is clearly ready to move on from Anthony, and Houston wants him to join James Harden and Chris Paul. The Thunder would have to shed another $3 million in the deal to make the trade work. Kanter makes $17.8 million a way while Anthony is scheduled to earn $26.2 million this season.

Oklahoma City is still trying to convince Westbrook to sign the five-year supermax this offseason.

Samsung launches English version of Bixby in US, Korea
Looking at these Samsung Galaxy Note 8 renders we can see that there is some more space for the fingerprint sensor to operate. Supposedly, the Note 8 will have a 6.3-inch display, which is only slightly bigger than the S8+'s 6.2-inch display.

Trade rumors have been swirling around Anthony for months. As an overpaid big man that's only effective on one end of the floor, he's not exactly a good fit on a roster that also includes Kristaps Porzingis, Willy Hernangomez and Joakim Noah. The only problem is Oklahoma doesn't own their 2018 or 2020 first-rounder, meaning they wouldn't be able to send NY a No.1 pick until 2022. So enter a fourth team to get the sweeteners, but that team will want things back, and quickly the house of cards falls apart. Working out such deals, however, aren't easy in the National Basketball Association.

As of now, the Thunder have no pieces that they can send the Knicks for Anthony. The Thunder would have to unload either Steven Adams or Enes Kanter to make a deal work, but a third team would probably have to be involved because NY would want picks or younger prospects on rookie-scale contracts. However, everyone would still be looking up at the Golden State Warriors.
