Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti has been in meetings all day Monday trying to resolve the Carmelo Anthony situation, according to a report from the Associated Press.
Anthony will be either traded, bought out or have his contract stretched by the Thunder.
Sources: Sam Presti has been in meetings "all day," trying to bring some sort of resolution to the Carmelo Anthony saga. (And that should surprise no one, but it makes me wonder if the finish line is in sight.)

Anthony’s lone season in OKC was a big disappointment, as the veteran scorer averaged a career-low 16.2 points per game and shot only 40.4 percent from the field and 35.7 percent from three.
The playoffs were even worse for Anthony, as he averaged 11.8 points while shooting a woeful 37.5 percent from the field and 21.4 percent from beyond the arc. The Thunder had an offensive rating of 98.6 when Anthony was on the court compared to 116.8 when he was on the bench.
If he’s bought out and becomes a free agent, the Houston Rockets are determined to sign Anthony. The Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat could also have interest in Anthony.
