If Anthony lands in Oklahoma City, it could form another NBA "super team" with 'Melo playing alongside 2017 NBA MVP Russell Westbrook and Paul George, who was acquired by the Thunder via a trade last month.
The Oklahoma City Thunder has emerged as a favourable destination for disgruntled New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony, who is reportedly willing to waive his no-trade clause ahead of the new National Basketball Association season.
This would certainly be a huge deal for the Thunder, as it could potentially put them in contention in the brutally tough Western Conference.
HIV Drug Resistance Could Undermine AIDS Fight
The statement noted a 52 per cent drop in AIDS-related deaths in the region over the past decade due to HIV treatment coverage. Oussama Tawil, country director of UNAIDS Myanmar, said new HIV infections declined by 26pc.
Carmelo Anthony has reportedly said that the Cavs and the Rockets are the two teams he'd think about waiving his no-trade clause for.
There is a link between Anthony and the Thunder - Oklahoma City's assistant general manager, Troy Weaver, recruited him to Syracuse. The Knicks could try to work a trade with other teams besides the Rockets (say, the Blazers), but because Phil Jackson was a bad GM, Anthony has a no-trade clause and he has thus far been unwilling to waive it for teams other than the Rockets or Cavaliers.
But an Anthony move to the Thunder, his relationship with Weaver apart, appears to have much less of a foundation.
21 insurgents, 4 policemen killed in Afghanistan clashes
In the statement, the US offered its condolences to the families of the security forces who were killed. It's believed all the dead are military or police personnel, he said.
Anthony, of course, has a no-trade clause, so both he and NY would have to approve anything that could happen.
If nothing else, Anthony's supposed interest in the Thunder and Irving's trade demand give the Knicks more leverage in their talks with Houston.
The Thunder have already made a splash this offseason acquiring forward Paul George from the Indiana Pacers for guard Victor Oladipo and forward Domantas Sabonis. Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reported Saturday that Anthony remains focused on heading to Houston. Anthony, Westbrook and George can all become free agents next summer.
Minneapolis Police Chief Doesn't Back Officer Who Shot Australian Woman
Harrity has told investigators he heard a loud noise near the squad auto just before Ruszczyk approached the driver's side. The Minneapolis police chief says the Australian woman who was shot by an officer after calling 911 "did not have to die".
Any deal involving Anthony to Oklahoma City would likely mean Enes Kanter going the other way just for salary purposes.
