How would a front line of Paul George, Steven Adams, and Carmelo Anthony go with Russell Westbrook and Andre Roberson in a starting five for the Oklahoma City Thunder.  As or reports today the Thunder and Anthony are circling each other at the New York Knicks work at moving Anthony in the near future. 

As of Bill Simmons Twitter, “Have a scoop – OKC and Carmelo are officially circling each other. OKC’s Troy Weaver recruited Melo to Cuse + has known him since DMV days.”


Does Anthony want to go to OKC?  Who knows.


Does the OKC situation fit Carmelo?  No, the style of play is not good for either the Thunder or Carmelo.


Does the money fit?  No.  But deals can be made.


Is the Carmelo to the Thunder serious?  You bet it is.
