According to the league's ESPN, Anthony has completed his Hawks buyout from his $ 27.9 million salary for 201
Anthony and a protected 2022 first-round match were traded to the Hawks last week as part of the Three-Team deal that sent point guard Dennis Schroder to the Thunder. The Falcons also sent Mike Muscala to the 76ers and received Justin Anderson in return.
Once Melo approves clearances, he is expected to sign a one-year, $ 2.4 million veteran minimum contract with the Rockets.
