The Philadelphia 76ers also are involved in this trade as a third team, as per Yahoo!

The Sixers sent swingman Justin Anderson to the Hawks and shooting guard Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the deal.

The Thunder have agreed to trade forward Carmelo Anthony and a protected 2022 first-round pick to the Hawks, reports ESPN.

This story will be updated. But the Thunder have gotten little production out of their backup point guards in the Russell Westbrook era, and Schroder certainly has the talent to become a threat off the bench.

If the Thunder couldn't have found a trade partner, they likely would have used the stretch provision to release the 10-time All-Star by August 31 so the $27.9 million he is owed next season would have been paid over the course of the next three seasons.

We knew it was only a matter of time, but on Thursday the Oklahoma City Thunder finally parted ways with Carmelo Anthony.

Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the 76ers will also be part of the deal and will receive Mike Muscala from the Hawks.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowki reports that Anthony, who is coming off a season in which he averaged career-lows in points (16.2), field goal percent (.404) and assists (1.3), will likely be bought out by the Hawks. It was the first time in his career that he scored less than 20 points per game in a single season. Schroder makes $15.5 million per year compared to Anthony's $28 million for 18-19. Muscala, 27, averaged 7.6 points and 4.3 rebounds in 53 games last season.
