PBT Extra: Carmelo Anthony, Thunder going separate ways, so what’s next for ‘Melo?

Carmelo Anthony's hefty contract is expected to result in him parting ways with the Thunder, allowing him to land with a team like the Rockets or Lakers.

This was bound to happen.

On the court, the Thunder want to play faster, feature more Jerami Grant, and shrink Carmelo Anthony’s role — something he didn’t want. Off the court, the Thunder were staring in the face of the largest tax bill in NBA history — salary and tax in excess of $300 million — and they can shrink that sum by as much as $100 million by letting him go.

Now it’s official, the two sides are working on their divorce. The question moves to what is next for Anthony?

I get into all of that in this latest PBT Extra.
