Melo and Thunder reportedly looking to part ways this summer

Considering the fact that Carmelo Anthony had a horrendous season in his inaugural campaign with the Oklahoma City Thunder, it was no surprise he opted in for the final year of a contract that would pay him nearly $28 million. This, combined with the substantial financial commitments to Russell Westbrook (5yrs/ $205 million), Steven Adams (4yrs/$100 million), and now the recently re-signed Paul George )4yrs/$137 million) and would present the Thunder with an astronomical $150 million in luxury taxes.

Melo nixes idea of bench role with Thunder

I think it is a fair assumption to say that Carmelo Anthony’s inaugural season in OKC did not go as well as he ( and the Thunder) would have liked. Forming a “big 3” with Russell Westbrook and Paul George, Melo would be the third option and obvious adjustments would have to be made to his game. Hopes that he could revive the mythical “Olympic Melo” would be the best fitting version were never realized and what we saw was an even more inefficient player who suffered through the worst…
