Wow! The New York Knicks have finally traded Carmelo Anthony.

According to ESPN, the team has agreed to trade Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder, in exchange for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a second-round 2018 draft pick to the Knicks.

Before the trade can be finalized, Anthony has to waive the no-trade clause in his contract. However, sources told ESPN that he is in agreement and plans to sign a letter of authorization granting permission to be traded, which should take place on Monday (Sept. 25).

The 10-time All-Star has two years and $54 million left on his contract. The second year is a player option worth almost $28 million.

Aside from OKC, the Houston Rockets and Cleveland Cavaliers were among the teams interested in Carmelo.

Its the second big acquisition for the Thunder this offseason. They also traded for Paul George over the summer.
