Carmelo Anthony has been a huge topic in this year's NBA offseason, and the talk finally ended when he was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Primarily, Carmelo wanted to go to the Houston Rockets, but the Ryan Anderson contract was so hard to deal that the trade could not be completed. Now, after Kyrie, Hayward, Chris Paul and George have been dealt, Carmelo got traded right before the start of training camp.

Carmelo heads to Oklahoma for training camps

Carmelo Anthony has been one of the best scorers in the NBA, but he has never made the NBA finals. He went all the way to the conference finals with Chauncey Billups as his point guard, but that was as far as he went before he was eventually traded to the New York Knicks.

Now Carmelo Anthony enters a new chapter in his NBA career as he joins an all-star lineup with Paul George and last years Most Valuable Player Russell Westbrook this offseason. Shams Charania of The Vertical has reported that Carmelo Anthony has been dealt with the Oklahoma City Thunder for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott, and the Chicago Bulls future second-round draft pick. Carmelo Anthony will waive his 8.1 million dollar trade kicker so that the deal can be finalized tomorrow or later on today.

Carmelo Anthony will be a big upgrade to the existing Westbrook and George combo in Oklahoma. Although the three of them are good with the ball, Paul George can be a very good catch and shoot NBA player. Carmelo can also be an effective shooter, especially with Westbrook on the point since he attracts so much attention when he drives to the basket.

Carmelo has won numerous individual accolade awards, but he is still waiting on the first NBA championship. As he enters the Thunder training camp this offseason, his NBA title hunt continues next season alongside George and Westbrook.

Can Anthony help the Thunder to win a Championship?

Carmelo Anthony is a ten-time NBA All-Star (2007, 2008, 2010-2017), six-time All-NBA team selection (2010, 2013, 2006, 2007, 2009, and 2012), three-time USA Basketball Athlete of the Year (2006, 2008, and 2016), and a former NBA scoring champion in 2013. Anthony has been one of the best NBA players in the past years, despite his degrading value due to his age and his huge contract there is no denying how good Melo is. The big question now is if he will be able to propel this newly formed NBA superteam this offseason to the NBA championship next season?
