Carmelo Anthony, Thunder may have mutual interest, but is trade realistic?

Carmelo Really Wants To Go To The Rockets

After rumors of being on the 2-yard line in regards to sending Melo to Houston, the Knicks pulled out of trade talks in hopes of convincing Melo to stay.

Looks like there is a new suitor for New York Knicks veteran small forward Carmelo Anthony and there could be mutual interest.

Troy Weaver, the Thunder's assistant GM, recruited Anthony to Syracuse, and that relationship could help pave the way to Anthony accepting a trade there, according to Simmons.

The Rockets, on the other hand, acquired one of Anthony's best friends, Chris Paul, earlier this offseason from the Los Angeles Clippers, and now are in an "arms race" to chase down the defending National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference. Previously, Anthony had listed the Houston Rockets and Cleveland Cavaliers as his preferred teams.

Currently, the Thunder have four big salaries under their belt - reigning MVP Russell Westbrook, newly-acquired All Star Paul George, Kiwi Steven Adams and fellow 'Stache Brother Enes Kanter.

The Thunder already made a huge splash this offseason, acquiring Paul George from the Indiana Pacers in exchange for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

BJP attacks Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah for 'unilateral' decision on state flag
Congress members were also reported to be unhappy with the Karnataka government's decision to design a state flag, ANI reported. Officials of Union Home Ministry have instantly, and rightly so, gave clarification against any such separate flag for a state.

A new team is reportedly going to give it a try.

Oklahoma City would likely try to add a draft pick in order to get a trade done, but even that probably wouldn't be enough.

This may be a stunning revelation, but it's none too surprising when one considers the appeal of Oklahoma City.

Adams and Kanter aren't just a dynamic duo off the court - they provide a complete package together near the rim for the Thunder. If Westbrook decides to bypass signing a supermax extension before the start of the season, he, George and Anthony will all be free agents in the summer of 2018.

Last year, Anthony and the Knicks missed the playoffs for the third straight season.
