OKC Thunder wrap up Anthony deal
(The Philippine Star) - September 26, 2017 - 4:00pm

LOS ANGELES – Carmelo Anthony formally completed his move to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday, cementing a blockbuster trade after seven seasons with the New York Knicks.

Anthony, 33, will form part of a new-look Thunder roster which has also been bolstered by the arrival of Paul George from the Indiana Pacers during the close season.

In return for Anthony, the Knicks will get center Enes Kanter and forward Doug McDermott and a second round 2018 draft pick.

The deal emerged on Saturday after Anthony agreed to waive his no-trade clause.

“We are thrilled to welcome Carmelo to Oklahoma City and the Thunder organization,” Thunder general manager Sam Presti said in a statement.

“In addition to his skill level, experience, and unique talents, Carmelo is another high character, professional player for our roster.”

Anthony, a 10-time All-Star and 14-year NBA veteran, heads to the Thunder after 976 career games in which he has averaged 24.8 points per game.

Knicks president Steve Mills thanked Anthony for his stint in New York.
