Oklahoma City Thunder, Carmelo Anthony 'circling each other'

It has not been reported on any credible United States basketball sites that the Thunder would be willing to part with Adams to pick up the fading superstar. They'd prefer younger, more low-priced players in addition to draft picks, and Houston has hardly any of that remaining after trading for Chris Paul.

In a league that's overrun by incessant trade rumors, Anthony has become the biggest name on the open market. With star players like Paul George and Russell Westbrook, a trade for Carmelo Anthony is not impossible for the Thunder.

Simmons claims that the relationship between Thunder assistant general manager Troy Weaver and Anthony could help get a deal done.

"Have a scoop - OKC and Carmelo are officially circling each other". Weaver, during his stint as assistant coach, recruited Anthony to the college program in Syracuse.

The New York Knicks find themselves right at the forefront of talks for Kyrie Irving, who has demanded a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Thunder don't have much to offer in exchange for Anthony.

Any deal involving Anthony to Oklahoma City would likely mean Enes Kanter going the other way just for salary purposes.

NY and Anthony clearly are ready to part ways as the Knicks look to rebuild around young star Kristaps Porzingis and 2017 first-round pick Frank Ntilikina. "Another simply said "Houston" when asked about the OKC report", Isola wrote in the Daily News.

The Thunder have already made a splash this offseason acquiring forward Paul George from the Indiana Pacers for guard Victor Oladipo and forward Domantas Sabonis. Even if it only guarantees them a single year with the supremely talented George. Last season, the Thunder went 47-35 before being eliminated by the Rockets in the first round of the playoffs.

No-one, bar one or two obvious exceptions, is untradeable in the National Basketball Association.

Adams and Kanter aren't just a dynamic duo off the court - they provide a complete package together near the rim for the Thunder. Even if he backflipped, and chose to take his talents to the small market in OKC.
