Carmelo Anthony is going to be running with Russell Westbrook. The New York Knicks have reportedly agreed to trade the star small forward to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
To say that the trade seems one-sided, in favor of OKC, is an understatement.
According to ESPN, in exchange for Melo, the Knicks will receive Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a 2018 second round pick. Hoodie Melo had recently included OKC among the teams he’d be willing to accept a move to by waiving his no-trade clause.
Pray for Kristoff Porzingis, because he’s gotten no help and will be getting all the attention. McDermott has not lived up to his 1st round draft pick billing and Enes Kanter is a stiff of a big man (don’t be fooled). No shots.
Carmelo Anthony is now 32-years-old but seems to have plenty left in the tank. And on another note, Melo is raising money to aid Puerto Rico after the commonwealth was hit by a pair of hurricanes.
Salute to Melo, more of NYC will now realize the gem of a pro athlete they had repping the town.
I’ve set up a @YouCaring donation page to aid the relief efforts in Puerto Rico. Any help you can give will get directly into the hands of those who need it. I’ve been doing community work on the island for the past 10 years, but this is another level. I'm starting with an immediate $50,000 donation, that has already been matched. We need your help in this fight. (link in bio)
