Knicks Reached A Deal with OKC

The Knicks and Thunder have agreed to a deal surrounding Carmelo Anthonyaccording to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The trade will reportedly involve Doug McDermott and Enes Kanter
The deal is only agreed upon at the moment, but the expectation is it will officially go through on Monday after the trade call is complete by then. Anthony will waive his no-trade clause to allow the trade go through. The Thunder add another superstar in what has been a crazy offseason for them while the Knicks finally put an end to a very dramatic era of basketball. 
This is a massive change of events that have taken place in merely a few days. The Knicks didn't want Anthony to be with the team during training camp and Anthony agreed knowing that it would only make an already awkward situation worse. However, Anthony originally refused to waive his no-trade clause for anybody but the Rockets. In recent days, he agreed to waive his clause for two teams, the Thunder and Cavaliers. Obviously, the Thunder won the ensuing sprint for Anthony.
This creates a really interesting power shift across the NBA. The Knicks were probably not going to be very good even with Anthony, but now they can move on and build toward a new future around Kristaps Porzingis. The Thunder, however, have added another star next to Paul George and Russell Westbrook that should vault them into contender status.
