According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Thunder have traded Anthony and a 2022 first-round pick in exchange for veteran point guard Dennis Schroder and big man Mike Muscala.

Schroder has played five seasons in the National Basketball Association, all with the Hawks, and averaged a career high 19.4 points a game last season.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have agreed to trade Carmelo Anthony to the Atlanta Hawks in a three-team trade that also involves the Philadelphia 76ers, according to reports.

The Hawks are expected to buy out Melo and make him an unrestricted free agent.

Schroder comes to the Thunder for a desired need: another fast, playmaking point guard for a revved-up bench behind All-Star guard Russell Westbrook.

The Brussels regulator insisted the tech giant had used Android illegally to "cement its dominant position" in user searches. Google in its response said it will challenge the ruling at the European Union courts.

Anthony's time in Oklahoma City lasted just one season, where the 34-year-old averaged 16.2 points and 5.8 rebounds over 78 games. Back in May, the 24-year old point guard stressed the need to play for a contender, telling reporters that he "cannot be second to last in the Eastern Conference".

It was a relatively complicated deal with the third team coming in, but each team accomplished something through the trade.

Anderson is a four-year National Basketball Association veteran after two seasons with the Dallas Mavericks and two with the 76ers. The Bucknell product is in the final year of his contract and will add shooting and inside depth for the Sixers in the 2018-19 season.

Muscala, who is not expected to remain with the Thunder, has also played all five seasons of his National Basketball Association career with Atlanta, and averaged 7.6 points and 4.3 rebounds a game last season. For his career, he is averaging 24.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3 assists.
