Looks like it is done.
Melo is garbage, but still an interesting trade for OKC.

They still only play with one ball in OKC ?? I can't believe that , .i don't see how they are going to make it work unless Westbrook dramatically gets a B-Ball IQ overnite which he won't , Billy D definitely gots a headache on his hands now in okc

I like the trade..they've gotten out of kanter and dipos contracts and if doesnt work out and everyone leaves they can start over basically from scratch. Might as well go for it

Wow. Great trade for okc. What role will melo play in okc, shooter? Melo plays very well when he's partnering with elite point guard. The west conf is gonna be fun to watxh next season

Thunder HAVE to win this year (still not even best team in their own division arguably) Westbrook (maybe), George and Melo (for sure) all will be gone after this coming season.

And the East gets even weaker . . . I mean the Knicks were trash already, but now they're a flat out noncompetitive dumpster fire.

Okc has a chance to be real good if Donovan can implement an offensive or defensive system. Otherwise, it'll be no different than when Westbrook and Durant switching off playing isolation basketball.

That's why the probably did the trade..its one last shot possibly as a title contender..if it doesnt work out..everyone leaves and its the start of a long rebuild process..if thats the case..I'd rather start off from scratch then still having the contracts of dipo ajd kanter on the books

Honest question. Are their 5 teams better in the eastern conference than in just the northwest division?

Not trying to pay myself on the back too much, but it's a really good question.

Considering he figured out a way to win 47 games with Westbrook/Oladipo/Roberson/Sabonis/Adams I'll assume he can do it with Westbrook/Roberson/Georgle/Melo/Adams

I have these guys above Houston and challenging San Antonio

Carmelo probably used that exact wording when he left.

Melo to West was a power shift for the East. He's your problem now. Lol

I don't like this trade at all for OKC. I just don't see this trio working well together. New York can now move forward with Porzingis as the main piece and build around him. They don't have to make Melo happy anymore.

Knicks got absolutely nothing for Melo. Why wait this long to trade him if you were gonna give him away?

He was leaving after this year and let's be real. No one was going to give up good players.

All we know is what we've seen right? Westbrook shined without a true number 1/2 and now you've given him 2 more. Keeping in mind the conflict when KD was there. It "may" work but it just looks like more talent stocking so the league can sell you on the few decent matchups this year

It's a STEAL.... Westbrook and PG3 are both gone after this year. IMO. Wouldn't shock me if both end up in LA .. Westbrook to clippers .

Kanter is a nice role player but he isn't Carmelo.. my only concern is getting a one demensional player in Carmelo who's a pure ISO guy for a decent big body interior defender in Kanter who can score a bit an rebound
