Carmelo Anthony has finally gotten his wish. He's about to be free from the rebuilding and dysfunctional Knicks. And he's headed to one of the more intriguing teams entering the 2017-18 season.
The Knicks have agreed to trade Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to multiple national reports.
In return, the Thunder would send center Enes Kanter, forward Doug McDermott and a 2018 second-round pick to New York.
The deal will reportedly be finalized on Monday.
Anthony is the second marquee acqisition by the Thunder this offseason. They traded for All-Star forward Paul George earlier this summer.
