Bill Simmons, CEO at the Ringer and known for his inside scoop on numerous National Basketball Association rumours, tweeted earlier today that Adams" team was attempting to trade for the 10-time All Star after it was reported he said he was willing to waive his "no-trade' clause with NY to join them. With star players like Paul George and Russell Westbrook, a trade for Carmelo Anthony is not impossible for the Thunder.
However, Bill Simmons of The Ringer reported Sunday that there is mutual interest between Anthony and the Thunder.
Anthony, who has a no-trade clause with the Knicks and can thus effectively pick his destination, has been linked most strongly with the Houston Rockets in recent weeks. The NBA superstar is willing to waive his no-trade clause while the Houston Rockets were supposed to strike a deal with the Knicks.
Anthony going to Oklahoma City would rival what the Rockets have put together after acquiring Chris Paul to work alongside James Harden. The Thunder don't have much to offer in exchange for Anthony.
Weaver serves as Vice President & Assistant General Manager for the Thunder. Anthony, Westbrook and George can all become free agents next summer. Even if it only guarantees them a single year with the supremely talented George.
Adams and Kanter aren't just a dynamic duo off the court - they provide a complete package together near the rim for the Thunder.
Last year, Anthony and the Knicks missed the playoffs for the third straight season. Even if he backflipped, and made a decision to take his talents to the small market in OKC.
