The Thunder add Anthony, 33, and Paul George, acquired in a trade this summer with the Indiana Pacers, to a perennial Western Conference playoff team led by last season's NBA MVP Russell Westbrook.
The pick going to New York is a 2018 second-rounder via the Chicago Bulls. Anthony waived his no-trade clause to agree to deal, after being convinced to do so by Westbrook and George, Wojnarowski reports.
