The Miami Heat have been linked to Carmelo Anthony's apparent impending exodus from the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Thunder, weighed down by a historic $310 million payroll and luxury tax bill, can use the stretch provision, trade him or reach a buyout agreement with the 10-time All-Star and four-time Olympian.
Finding a trade partner willing to take on Anthony's near $28 million contract may be hard for the Thunder, but the organization could trim $107 million off its 2018-19 luxury tax bill by utilizing the stretch provision.

The stretch provision would slash $90 million in tax, dropping the Thunder's bill from $150 million to $60 million.
OKC will work with Anthony's reps and evaluate options including trade, buyout and/or stretch provision, which could save the team over $100 million. He can veto any trade, but teams may be intrigued with taking on his salary in the hope of clearing salary cap space in 2019.

This is particularly useful for teams who want to try getting out of a bad contract or, like the Thunder, are looking for salary cap relief because that stretched out money will count against the cap for every season that it's still on the books.
