The Oklahoma City Thunder and Carmelo Anthony, aged 34, are parting ways, as per ESPN Adrian Wojnarowski and Royce Young. A move that could save the Thunder over $100 million.

As the franchise sifts through a $310 million payroll and luxury tax bill, the front office and Melo reportedly have a mutual agreement that his limited role with the team isn’t what he had agreed to when signing with OKC, sources tell the site.

Melo originally opted into his $27.9 million contracts for the 2018-19 season back in June.

Melo originally opted into his $27.9 million contracts for the 2018-19 season back in June. The Thunder acquired Anthony in a trade with the Knicks before last season. He averaged career lows of 16.2 points on 40.4% shooting last season.

The pair separated back in April 2017, Melo and LaLa have been adamant about remaining close to co-parent their son, Kiyan, 10. However, they’ve been spending a ton of time together recently, which has stirred up major speculation that they’re back together for good. Lala spends a lot of time in LA for work, as well as for pleasure, along with the best buddy Kim Kardashian.
