Additional Details Revealed In Carmelo Anthony Trade

In 121 National Basketball Association games, Luwawu-Cabarrot has averaged 6.1 points in 16.5 minutes per game.

For a while now, and leading up to the deal that sent him from Oklahoma City to Atlanta, reports have suggested that the Houston Rockets are a clear favorite to land Melo.

Carmelo Anthony will become a free agent after being a key figure in a three-team National Basketball Association trade Thursday involving the Oklahoma City Thunder, Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia 76ers, according to reports.

Anderson is a four-year National Basketball Association veteran after two seasons with the Dallas Mavericks and two with the 76ers.

The complex maneuver came about because Anthony opted in to his contract with the Thunder, but they wanted to part ways with the 15-season National Basketball Association veteran.

Schroder, 24, has three years and $46.5 million remaining on his contract.

The Thunder traded Anthony to the Atlanta Hawks on Friday in a three-team deal that included Dennis Schroder being shipped off to OKC.

Schroder is a German global point guard who averaged 19.4 points and 6.2 assists last season, while Muscala is a power forward who averaged 7.6 points per game in 2017.

By trading Anthony, the Thunder saved about $73 million this season.

Moving Schroder from the team has been a top priority after the team drafted Trae Young with the #5 overall draft pick. Carroll played in six summer league games for the team, averaging 4.2 points and 2.0 rebounds in nine minutes. Doing so meant moving on from a pair of former first-round picks in Anderson and Luwawu-Cabarrot, though both were going to see minimal time in Philadelphia this season.

Muscala's $5 million had to be included to make the deal work financially. But then Nemanja Bjelica backed out of an agreement to join the Philadelphia 76ers, and the Serbian forward appears likely to join the Sacramento Kings instead. He averaged 16.2 points on 40.4-percent shooting. Atlanta will receive Anthony, Justin Anderson and the protected first-rounder. The Hawks have been shopping veteran forward Kent Bazemore since before this year's Draft.
