Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Thunder traded Anthony plus a 2022 draft pick to Atlanta in exchange for guard Dennis Schroder and forward Mike Muscala.

Schroder, 24, has three years and $46.5 million remaining on his contract. Oklahoma City appeared destined to have to either use to stretch provision or give up other assets to unload Anthony. Anthony will be waived by Atlanta soon, and the Rockets are expected to be his primary suitor in free agency. Schroder averaged 19.4 points and 6.2 assists per game last season.

Anthony isn't a great three-point shooter by any means, but he's still a load in the post and is still able to get to the foul line - his last season in NY, when he was more of a primary option, he still averaged nearly five free throws a game.

In acquiring Schroder, Oklahoma City becomes younger and more athletic; the team is said to be excited for the opportunity to add Schroder to a core that features Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Steven Adams ( per Wojnarowski ).

While Anthony expressed frustration with his role after the season, the Thunder had anticipated that he would opt in to the final year of his deal, always viewing the trade with the Knicks as a two-year deal.

For Anthony and the Thunder, the two sides can move forward amicably.

Carmelo Anthony, right, and Steven Adams trade blows with Jae Crowder during the 2017-18 season. The only issue to resolve was what form that departure would come in: Anthony could be traded elsewhere before being waived and allowed to pursue a new home, or the Thunder could waive him itself. Mission accomplished. They also got a future first-rounder out of the deal, which will convey as long as the Thunder continue to make the playoffs, which they should. That effort only intensified when Atlanta made Trae Young the center of its rebuilding effort by trading back to acquire him during last month's National Basketball Association draft. The 23-year-old finished last season averaging 5.8 points over 52 games with seven starts. He became coveted by Philadelphia after free agent Nemanja Bjelica backed out of a verbal agreement with the 76ers this week.
