Melo and Thunder Will Part Ways This Summer

But in the event that doesn't happen the Thunder appears prepared to use the NBA's stretch provision to slash $90 million tax and spreading Anthony's salary for $9.3 million over the next three seasons.

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

Switzerland's lack of intent exposed by Sweden
Switzerland controlled possession early as Sweden mostly defended with 10 men behind the ball when in their own half. A low-quality match featured some of the worst finishing seen so far at the World Cup , and two efforts stood out.

Carmelo Anthony and the Oklahoma City Thunder will part ways before next National Basketball Association season begins, ESPN reported Friday, saying the move could save the Thunder more than $100 million. The Heat has a budding young standout in Josh Richardson who starts at small forward and signed James Johnson last summer to a four-year, $60 million deal to play the majority of minutes at power forward. One team that is reportedly interested is the Houston Rockets.

Finding a trade partner willing to take on Anthony's near $28 million contract may be hard for the Thunder, but the organization could trim $107 million off its 2018-19 luxury tax bill by utilizing the stretch provision. Even if Anthony is traded, he would likely be moved to a team that is looking to acquire his massive expiring deal to free up salary-cap space for next season's free agency.

On lap 53, he pitted again for super-softs, dropping a place to fifth behind Ricciardo, who nearly immediately slowed and stopped. Nico Hulkenberg's engine let go early in the race while pole-sitter Valtteri Bottas had a gearbox failure.

Anthony said numerous right things during his time in Oklahoma City, talking continuously about how he'd "accepted" and "sacrificed" for a role as a third banana.

Anthony struggled for most of the 2017-18 season, averaging 16.2 points per game on 40.4 percent shooting from the field and 35.7 percent shooting from the perimeter.

Trump delaying NAFTA deal until after midterm elections
In the interview, Trump again threatened to impose tariffs on imported vehicles, saying, "The cars are the big ones". Canada announced Sunday that the tariffs amount to $16.6 billion Canadian dollars or $12.5 billion in USA dollars.

"I don't think I can be effective as that type of player", he said. The Thunder, who lost to the Utah Jazz in the first round of the playoffs, traded forward Doug McDermott, big man Enes Kanter and the Chicago Bulls' 2018 second-round pick to the New York Knicks for him this past September.
