Carmelo Anthony Stays With Oklahoma For $27.9 Million
Zoe Taylor ·
NBA star Carmelo Anthony has not terminated his option on the final year of his contract to join the 2018 free-agent class and has chosen instead to stay with Oklahoma City Thunder to earn $27.9 million USD for the 2018/2019 season. Anthony is now set to complete his $120 million USD, five-year contract with the New York Knicks.
Anthony averaged lows last season with the Thunder, including 16.2 points on 40.4% shooting.
The Thunder may well have one of the largest payrolls ever if they also resign Paul George when free agency opens. George has until Friday to opt out of the $20.2 million he is owed in the final year of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent.
