Carmelo Anthony - Thunder a possibility

Brandon Dill  Associated Press

He would be afforded that same opportunity in Oklahoma City with reigning MVP Russell Westbrook and three-time All-NBA honoree Paul George.

That latter option could possibly be taking shape, as Bill Simmons of The Ringer reports Anthony has some interest in potentially joining the Thunder.

Weaver is Oklahoma City's assistant GM, an assistant coach under Jim Boeheim when Anthony was at Syracuse.

The New York Knicks have put their All-Star forward on the trade block and had worked for weeks on a deal with the Houston Rockets only to see it fall apart at the last second.

Trade rumors have been swirling around Anthony for months.

Oklahoma City probably has two of the league's 12-best players, an argument that only the Warriors, Houston Rockets and Cleveland Cavaliers could make.

Anthony would have to waive a no-trade clause in order for the Knicks to move him. The Thunder don't have much to offer in exchange for Anthony.

Unfortunately for Carmelo, the biggest obstacle standing in the way of a deal is that the Rockets don't have much to offer NY.

"Acquiring an asset like Anthony would require a fair outlay from the Oklahoma City in the form of at least one of its major existing contracts, likely that of either Adams or his "'Stache brother", Enes Kanter. They are emerging as a prominent threat in the Western Conference. If Westbrook decides to bypass signing a supermax extension before the start of the season, he, George and Anthony will all be free agents in the summer of 2018.

After rumors of being on the 2-yard line in regards to sending Melo to Houston, the Knicks pulled out of trade talks in hopes of convincing Melo to stay.
