Anthony 3-team trade won’t be completed in coming days

Carmelo Anthony will sign a one-year deal with Houston.

The three-team trade between the Oklahoma City Thunder, Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks is not expected to be completed in the coming days, according to a report from Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The Sixers are reportedly working on another move.

In the three-team trade, the Thunder are trading Carmelo Anthony and a protected 2022 first-round pick to the Hawks for Dennis Schroder and Mike Muscala.

Muscala, however, is being sent to the Sixers. Philadelphia is sending forward Justin Anderson to the Hawks and shooting guard Timothe LuwawuCabarrot to the Thunder.

Anthony will be waived by the Hawks, allowing him to sign with the Houston Rockets. Anthony will get his entire $27.9 million in the buyout and waiver with Atlanta.

By trading Anthony, the Thunder are saving $73 million this season and their projected luxury tax bill will drop from $150 million to $88.8 million.
