Oklahoma City mayor declares July 7 'Paul George Day'

Due to the Thunder being significantly over the salary cap, that contract becomes even more expensive due to the NBA's luxury tax rules.

Felton, 34, performed well as a backup point guard with Oklahoma City one season ago. As of now, Bobby Marks of ESPN said the Thunder have $150 million in luxury tax.

Anthony recently exercised his player option worth nearly $28 million for next season. The Lakers, feeling that George would sign this summer as a free agent, opted not to pay that price, and he was instead sent to the Thunder in exchange for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

One way to bring the team's luxury tax bill is to waive Anthony, who chose to stay with the Thunder after exercising the $27.9 million option on his contract.

The Thunder desperately need to do this, because Raymond Felton's new contract has pushed the Thunder's combined spending over $300 million.

England vs. Sweden final score, recap

Former UCLA basketball player Tyler Honeycutt found dead after shootout
After a prolonged standoff, SWAT teams entered the house early on Saturday morning and found the suspect "unresponsive". Authorities said a man fired at police and barricaded himself in a Sherman Oaks, Calif., home on Friday.

According to reports, the OKC can save $116 million in luxury tax payments by buying out Anthony's deal and then stretching the rest of his $2018-19 salary across multiple years, by allowing him to leave.

Felton doesn't put up 17 points and nine assists per game like he did back in 2010 with the New York Knicks, but he still certainly has his moments. George was on the block and demanding a trade from the Indiana Pacers to the Lakers, but the Pacers were rumored to want Brandon Ingram or the second overall pick in the draft in return. Oklahoma City fell to the Jazz in six games in the first round.

Anthony isn't an essential piece for a championship run in the National Basketball Association.

Which teams have improved the most in National Basketball Association free agency, and what's still to come? He averaged 6.9 points and 2.5 assists per game in 82 contests (two starts).
