Carmelo Anthony appears set to leave OKC

10-time NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony looks set to be headed out of Oklahoma City Thunder with reports that the two may split this summer. A split for them would mean the 34 year old would be a free agent later this summer.

The LA Lakers who recently signed 4-time MVP Lebron James, the Houston Rockets and the Miami Heat have been listed as possible suitors for Anthony. The massive financial implications of Anthony opting into his $27.9 million contract for the 2018-19 season, coupled with a mutual understanding that his scaled-back role with the thunder isn't what he had signed up for, have dictated that the two sides will part ways sometime this summer according to league sources.

Anthony's agent, Leon Rose of CAA Sports, has a strong relationship and history with Thunder General Manager Sam Presti, and they'll work together on Anthony's exit through a trade, the NBA's stretch provision or a combined buyout and stretch.

Anthony, a 10-time NBA All-Star and three-time Olympic gold medalist, would be pursued vigorously among contenders on the free-agent market.
