As soon as Anthony reaches a buyout with the Hawks, the former New York Knick will hit the free agent market and be able to join any team he wants. The Thunder organization also permitted Melo to meet teams on his own and work out mutually beneficial deals with them.

ATLANTA-On Thursday, the Atlanta Hawks reportedly swung a momentous three-way trade with the Thunder and 76ers, acquiring future Hall of Famer Carmelo Anthony, forward Justin Anderson and a lottery-protected first-round pick in 2022.

For starters, the Hawks did an exceptional job receiving a first-round selection just for taking on Anthony's salary. Oklahoma City's payroll will now rest at $148.7 million with the movement of Anthony and Muscala. "The Heat received a boost last season when Wade rejoined the team at midseason, after time with the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers".

The Hawks will then buy out Anthony's contract and release him, making him a free agent provided he clears waivers, a likely move since few teams could afford to absorb the financial burden of his 2018-19 salary.

Chitman said if Kaiser had not been as observant as she was, he would be discussing a tragedy involving an 8-month-old child. On average, 37 children die each year due to pediatric vehicular heat stroke, according to the National Safety Council .

Thunder saved $73M after this move.

As for Schroder, it has been rumored for quite some time that his days in Atlanta were numbered, especially after the team traded for veteran point guard Jeremy Lin just days after selecting Trae Young in the NBA Draft. Meanwhile, the Thunder will get guard Dennis Schroder, forward Mike Muscala.

Last season, Anthony put up 16.2 points per game on 40.4 percent shooting in a diminished role. Schroder shot below 30% from the perimeter last season. Schroder and three other men were allegedly involved in a fight with another man, who suffered a torn ACL and meniscus as the result of the scuffle. The Thunder are getting Shroder and the 76ers' Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot.

Despite that, the Rockets could still use another perimeter defender if they want to keep the same defensive intensity that granted them the sixth best D Rating in the league previous year.
