Carmelo Anthony trade....
Sun Jul 22, 2018 6:06 pm
  • Ok, I admit I’m not no where close to a BB expert, in fact, I probably no less than the average fan.

    Can someone explain the logic in the trade?

    Atlanta gives up what seems to be a bunch, then almost immediately announced that the plan to release him?

    What the Hell?

    It sounds like he may land in Houston so I’m not mad, I just don’t understand the logic behind the trade.

    Any input?

    My point being, why give up anything for a player you don’t plan on retaining?

  • Sounds like a money move and to get out of contracts so they can do something else.

    Texans traded Osweiler to Cleveland and did about the same thing if you remember.

  • Atlanta drafted Trae Young, but had another PG on their roster set to make 4/70. Expiring contracts are huge in the NBA. A great way to get out of a contract you don't want. They chose to eat 27 mil and get no player rather than pay their backup PG 4/70.

    I'm actually surprised the Thunder would do it. But they are up against the luxury tax, so taking the $10 mil less saves them over 100 mil in penalties.
