New York has agreed to a deal to send Carmelo Anthony to OKC for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a draft pick, league sources tell ESPN.

Thoughts?

So OkC has the 2 biggest chuckers in the league now. Chuckbrook and ChuckMelo gonna chuck their way out of another first round exit. There's only 1 ball on the court Presti. Chemistry will be a trainwreck. Russell gonna have to pass the ball now and he don't like that.

Melo and PG were always the man of their teams and basically the only scorer so they had to chuck, just like westbrook last year. Now they have the opportunity to learn to share the ball just like golden state adapted to last year. Roberson is a great defender and doesn't need any touches on offense so that's a plus.

Not sure why people call this an OKC trade win. Kanter is a really good big man and they lost a few other pieces as well. Carmelo is pretty washed now and is basically a scorer with no defense. With Russ dribbling for 20 seconds before dishing out, Melo and PG will have a hard time adjusting and finding their rhythm. Guaranteed they will be fed up and move to the Lakers with the Big Ballers after the season is up.

And the West...

Westbrook
Curry
CP3
Lillard
Harden
Klay
Butler
Kawhi
PG13
Durant
Draymond
AD
Cousins
KAT

And 2 of them won't even make it to the ASG. Not to mention guys like Gobert, Gasol, Wiggins, McCollum, Jokic, Millsap, Griffin, Jordan, Booker, Conley, holy cow.

I don't think Isaiah Thomas will be back until after the all star game so that's one man crossed off that list. I'll peg him at 10% making it. I feel even D'angelo Russell has a higher chance of making it.

What you guys that complain about all 3 being ball dominant volume shooters is this. Melo is one of the bets catch and shoot shooters in the NBA. Do you guys remember that's all he did in the Olympics? He shot like 50% from 3, but the line is a bit closer but still Melo is an amazing catch and shoot player.

Olympic 3 point line is a few feet closer than the NBA's. Carmelo is an excellent long 2 shooter and occasionally drag it to 3 line.

Westbrook just signed a massive 6 year 233 million extension. Carmelo and George will stay long term now for sure.

He's not going to like playing with two of the biggest ballhogs in the game. He'd rather lose more games and play with Lonzo and have a bigger role you watch.

OKC doesn't feel like a good gelled well team. Denver will finish above them.
