While attempting to re-sign Paul George is a huge priority for the Thunder, the team would also like to move on from Carmelo Anthony following his recent comments saying that he would not entertain a role off of the bench.
The relationship has reportently soured while Jerami Grant proved to be the better option in most cases and especially towards the end of the season. While the team may want to move on from Anthony, they will have a difficult time trying to do so as he’s owed nearly $28 million in salary next season, assuming he picks up his player option. And if a trade doesn’t happen, the Thunder could decide to use the stretch provision on the $27.9 million owed to him leading to a potentially ugly split.
