Carmelo Anthony has been traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Sam Presti, the best general manager in the NBA, does it again. Presti sent big man Enes Kanter, small forward Doug McDermott, and a second round pick. Kanter only played nine minutes a game in the playoffs last season, due to his lack of defensive talent. Mcdermott is just another guy, a very average NBA player therefore OKC stole Anthony.
Anthony is still a top-ten scorer in the NBA, ESPN's rankings were laughable, Anthony is a top-25 player in this league. While Russell Westbrook leads the charge, and Paul George and Anthony on the wings, look out. Head coach Billy Donovan will have to get these guys sharing the ball, which seems very likely, since all three of these All-Stars have played pick up together.
This trade has propelled OKC to the second best team out West.
GS, OKC, HOU, SAS, MIN, NO, DEN, POR. Those are the eight best teams out West.
