The Carmelo Anthony saga seemingly can't come to an end. We've seen many reports and trade rumors so far this offseason about Carmelo's potential new team, but he's still with the New York Knicks. He joined the Knicks in 2010, but since then he hasn't been able to accomplish much in New York. Carmelo has had some good seasons individually, but the team hasn't done much since his arrival from the Denver Nuggets. He still has two more years left on his current contract with the Knicks, but has the option to opt out of the final year of the deal. Earlier this summer, it was reported that Anthony wants out of New York, and is ready to waive his no-trade clause.

Several teams were mentioned as possible landing spots for the 6-foot-8 versatile forward, but the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Houston Rockets were named as the favorites to acquire him. According to most recent reports, Anthony himself said to the Knicks front office that his primary option, if he gets traded, would be the Houston Rockets.

Carmelo teaming up with Westbrook and George?

But even though the Cavaliers and the Rockets are looking like the frontrunners to land Anthony this summer, one other team is also interested in his services. It's the Oklahoma City Thunder. Bill Simmons reported on Monday that there's mutual interest between the Thunder and Carmelo Anthony. The connection between Anthony and the Thunder is reportedly OKC's assistant general manager Troy Weaver.

Weaver was the assistant coach at Syracuse and he helped recruit Carmelo Anthony to Syracuse in 2002.

The possibility of Melo joining the Oklahoma City Thunder this offseason is slim, but it would be interesting to see him play alongside Russell Westbrook and Paul George.

Surely the combination of all three of them on the same team would make the Thunder one of the favorites to win the NBA title next season. Even though he is a 33-year old NBA veteran, Anthony still has a lot to offer. Last season with the Knicks, he averaged 22.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, and the 2017/2018 campaign will be the 15th season of his career.

Darius Miller joins the Pelicans

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the New Orleans Pelicans have agreed on a two-year deal with Darius Miller. Miller, who was drafted by New Orleans in 2012, spent the last two seasons playing in Europe.

Since being drafted in the second round in 2012, the 6-foot-8 small forward has played 102 games in the NBA. It is still unknown how much will Miller's contract with the Pelicans be worth, but reportedly the second year will be a team option. He holds career averages of 3.1 points and 1.3 rebounds per game.
